Festival Fashion 2015
It seems like only yesterday we were shrouded in our winter coat, hat, scarf and boots. Well, shed those winter layers everyone because it’s festival time. And that can only mean one thing – festival fashion. This festival season, The Ms. Collection has your back with the basics of festival fashion, many of which you should already have in your wardrobe. All you need to do is buy the ticket, get yourself there, and leave the festival fashion to us. Oh, and don’t forget to leave the Selfie Stick at home – most festivals including Coachella and Lollapalooza are banning them for safety reasons.
FESTIVAL FASHION RULE NO. 1 – THE BOOTS

The last thing you need to worry about at a music festival are your feet. Are they cold? Wet? Dirty? Wearing boots will not only remove any of these concerns (thus allowing you to enjoy the festival), but also provide the boho vibe you’re trying to channel. For the best options, try biker boots or suede booties (add some fringe and you’ll be totally on trend).
FESTIVAL FASHION RULE NO. 2 – DENIM CUTOFFS OR OVERALLS

There’s no better way to channel a relaxed vibe than with some denim overalls. Short or long, they scream “laid back”, while you look cool.
FESTIVAL FASHION RULE NO. 3 – REMEMBER A JACKET
Missguided Fringed Faux Suede Jacket
Even if the sun is out, at some point it will get cooler, and you’ll thank us for this advice. But remember, not just any jacket will do. Festival fashion requires a jacket that works hard but doesn’t look like it is. This season the suede jacket will be the most on trend, although a seasoned denim jacket out of your wardrobe will work just as well.
FESTIVAL FASHION RULE NO. 4 – THE VINTAGE OR PRINTED TEE
Ramones Vintage T-shirt
Nothing proves your music (and fashion) credentials better than a vintage music T-shirt. Scour your local thrift shop for some vintage finds, or simply check online for some winners. Wear under your denim overalls with your biker boots.
FESTIVAL FASHION RULE NO. 5 – THE BOHO DRESS

We all know festival fashion wouldn’t be complete without the perfect boho dress. Worn with your suede jacket and suede fringe booties, you’ll look like a latter day Stevie Nicks.
FESTIVAL FASHION RULE NO. 6 – ACCESSORIZE
There’s only one festival fashion jewelry rule, and that’s ANYTHING goes. Want to add an arm cuff? Do it. Perhaps a hair grip? Sure. Layered necklaces? If you can stand it, then it goes. Always wanted a tattoo? Then try a metallic tattoo, sure to be huge on the festival circuit this spring.
