    the only festival essentials you need this summer

    we've narrowed 'em down to five!

    If you've ever gone to see a band and felt bummed out gazing at the sea of flower crowns, crop tops, and fringe across the grounds, you're not alone. Nothing against denim-cutoffs or lace blouses, but you guys--festival fashion has finally reached its saturation point.

    However, rather than destroying the notion of cool concert trends altogether, ditch the obvious options and instead give festival staples a rad new twist. We've scoured the scene at London's Wireless Music Festival this weekend and have narrowed it down to five essential items: a matchy-matchy set, flattering overalls, a printed jacket, a statement hairpiece, and comfy boots.

    Even better, you can incorporate each of these pieces into your closet seamlessly long after the season ends. (Because let's be honest: how many times are you really going to wear that crochet monokini after the concert is over?) 

    See our picks in the gallery--ticket not included.
