Nowadays, it seems as if festival style is just as important as the music itself. And while many people overthink each and every detail of their outfit—one that they will spend all day and night sweating in—we believe the best approach to festival fashion is to keep it easy. We're huge proponents of a simple crochet dress, cutoff shorts, and a trusty band tee. The hard part comes with shoe choice—after all, you need to wear shoes that are stylish, will take you from stage to stage in five minutes flat, allow your feet to breathe, and are comfortable.

Luckily, Nine West has a bevy of options that fit all the aforementioned qualifications and more. Whether you're looking for a cool sneaker, a killer gladiator sandal, or a good espadrille, the footwear brand has you covered. Click through the gallery to see our top picks—because you deserve to skip the long end-of-the-evening foot rubs and actually enjoy the music.
