5 Must-Have Summer Festival Accessories


9fFY86VSa5mBOe1GcnzLB3eHOlc-rEkohV2r_qauMpc Despite your aching hangover from the shit show that was Mayfest, you’re going to want to keep reading. Summer is coming up, and you are probably already panicking about what to wear to whatever music festival you paid way too much for. However, this summer is all about small details and accessories and less about clothes. Make sure to stock up on stylish, music festival inspired accessories that you can wear on the daily, or to an actual music festival.

Note: Flower crowns are for basic bitches... stay away from them at all costs.

Other than flower crowns, however, there are a myriad of accessories to choose from that will take your summer outfits to the next level. The boho trend is still very in right now, and a lot of accessories are inspired by the trend. In addition, ethnic and tribal inspired fashion pieces are all the rave for the summer. Here are some festival accessories that we love:

1. Chain headpieces


If you want to go for an Egyptian goddess elegant look, chain headpieces are the perfect option. They add a touch of sophistication and ease to your summer ensembles and exude femininity. Pair this badass accessory with a romper or a maxi dress to continue with the theme of effortless elegance.

2. Henna


Henna may not be among the traditional “accessories” you would buy, but it is definitely a form of body art displayed as artistic expression. It seems like everyone and their mothers have started to get hennas recently, so get your hands on some... literally.

3. Body/hand chains


When wearing a more revealing outfit, body chains can be a really great accessories. Hand chains are also a great way to add a feminine touch to your summer outfit with jewels to brighten it up.

4. Feathers


All things feather will be a top trend this summer at music festivals now that we’ve put flower crowns in the rear view. Feather headpieces, feather necklaces, feather extensions, and so on are all staple accessories you will want to get your hands on this summer. They add a whole new dimension to your outfit.

5. Wide Brimmed Hats


These hats have been around for a while and have reign as an all-time favorite for music festival enthusiasts. Not only do they block the piercing sunlight from your face, but they are also fashionable as an added bonus. They give off a boho chic vibe that many people like to sport at music festivals and will go with any outfit you are wearing.
