I recently went to Soundset, a huge hip hop music festival that happens in Minnesota. A lot of big names were there including Ludacris, Big Sean, and J.Cole. My biggest concern when going to this concert was not parking or ticket prices it was “What am I going to wear?” I have to wear something comfortable, but cute and I surely don’t want to ruin any shoes! So what does festival appropriate clothing look like?
Don’t wear heels. That should be a given. These outside music festivals happen in grass and the weather never works out how we want it to so it will probably rain, Rain means mud and you will get stuck in the mud and fall if you wear heels. Same goes for wedges. I also would not opt for sandals. You WILL get stepped on! Sneakers are a good option but I wore black combat boots like these Mossimo Supply Co. boots from Target.
Since it was raining, I knew these would be the best option. Basically don’t wear anything you don’t want ruined!
Clothing wise I opted for light jeans, a cute tank top and a flannel. It was rainy and a little cold, but I didn’t want to be covered up too much and have to move in a large crowd in a big jacket. The flannel kept me warm and I still looked nice!
Check out this flannel from Forever21!
I would also suggest not wearing a dress. The wind might pick it up and you’ll be mooning the whole crowed. The same goes for skirts. Wear something that will stay close to your body like shorts or jeans. Shorts if its hot, jeans if its cold.
If you don’t have to bring a purse, then don’t. It sucks but people are awful and you don’t want to get mugged.
