ladies and gentlemen, music festival season has arrived.

We're not sure the exact moment "festival style" became synonymous with cut-off denim shorts, flow-y lace dresses, and layers of necklaces. Perhaps one day some intrepid historian will tackle the mystery, but in the meantime we know this much: the look isn't going away anytime soon. And with Coachella kicking off the music festival season this weekend, there's no better way to get into the right mindset than with this new lookbook from Free People. The boho-cool retailer dressed up model Martha Hunt in all of the outdoor essentials. Suede? Check. Tie-dye? Check. Crochet semi-sheer maxi skirt? Check, check, and check. Best of all, the store has rounded up all of their favorite pieces in a shop-within-a-shop, so you don't have to work too hard to get your April-through-September uniform. The only thing missing? A new band that you'll fall in love with. That part is totally up to you.
