How To Dress In Style For This Season’s Music Festivals And Still Have A Good Time

Okay, you’ve got your floral headband, your American Flag crop top and a playlist of the best indie bands for the drive—you are so ready to hit up that music festival and make a splash in more ways than one. But even if a weekend spent in a bikini sounds like a good idea (it’s not) and running around barefoot sounds freeing (again, it’s not), there are ways to dress to be stylish, comfortable and still enjoy yourself without heading home with a few broken toes and a mean sunburn. Sure you could get in your best street style, letting would-be fashion photographers take snapshots of you all weekend, or run around sans shirt and shorts drinking to your hearts content and not worry about anything else (it’s all about the music, man)—but would you really want to? Personally we prefer to take a middle ground—yes, it’s all about the music, but if we could grove to our favorite bands while looking good and feeling comfortable—well then that would be pretty awesome.
Some people will tell you to bring a backpack (a.k.a. hold everyone else’s water bottle) or a fanny-pack (fashion suicide), while others suggest a hands-free crossbody bag. We’re going to have to agree with the latter. We like the idea of having our hands free, but a backpack we would easily fill it up—and just because the weight is distributed evenly, doesn’t mean it won’t get heavy. (Unless of course anyone thinks they can pull off the ‘90s mini backpack? No judgments.) Opt for something lightweight in a small to medium size. An adjustable length strap would be preferable to keep your bag tucked against your body so it’s not bouncing around while you groove to your favorite set.

Proenza Schouler Pink Leather New Lamm Small Backpack, $1,675; available at Ssense.
Please don’t go barefoot. You will step on something sharp (or worse…), someone will step on you, or you’ll gather enough dirt to end up looking like a pauper from a horrible, new-age rendition of Oliver Twist. Bad times all around. Instead of open-toed sandals or flip flops that will leave your freshly pedicured tootsies unprotected, try a fun, closed-toe shoe or bright sneakers. Colorful slip-ons will make it easy for quick dips in the pool, keep you comfortable for all that walking you’ll be doing, and are easy to take off if you do grab a seat on the lawn.

Okay, shorts are the pretty obvious option here for the simple fact that they will keep you comfortable, looking great and won’t leave you prone to accidental peep shows like a short skirt will. But if you choose the right pieces you could rock dresses, skirts or even pants. Personally we tend to stay away from jeans as the material is thick and hot—and if you get it wet look forward to a day in a skin-chaffing material. No, thank you. Opt for light, breathable fabrics—cottons, linens and silks in looser fits that will allow your skin a little room to breathe.

Layers can be a good idea, provided you know about the weather in the area and plan accordingly. Tissue-thin cardigans and tops can be great for adding on extra protection from the elements, and if it gets too hot to wear, they’re light enough to roll up and pack away. Cotton tees and tank tops are great for keeping cool, while a button up shirt over a thin tank (or bikini top if you must) can be worn open, tied up or buttoned if you get chilly. If it will be cool at night or even a little rainy bring a jacket that is ultra-portable and can fold into a pouch.

A couple pieces of jewelry and some bangles can really make or break an outfit so be sure to choose something that’s not only stylish, but right for the occasion. With all the running around and rocking out you’ll be doing chances are you’ll work up a sweat—especially with that summer heat. Metals can be tarnished when coming into contact with the oils on your skin, especially those big costume pieces that (unfortunately) look awesome with your festival outfit. Instead opt for big beads or stones, and try to find a weightier piece—the last thing you need is your baubles smacking you in the face every time you jump up and down to the beat.

Scarves, sunglasses and even a stylish hat can help protect you from the sun and those killer rays. Wide brim hats can keep your face in the shade (no Pharrell hats, others need to see), while scarves can keep the sun off, keep you warm or even cool you down if you drench it in water. Go as fun as you want with your glasses—for the most part they won’t leave your face, and unless you plan to do some serious head-banging, they should be okay.

Do’s & Don’ts
Do: Drink plenty of water—especially if you’re going to be drinking. Passing out due to heat exhaustion or dehydration will kind of put a damper on your weekend.
Don’t: Bring your favorite designer pieces. We don’t care how good your Fendi Buggie looks with that dress—if it would kill you to have it lost/stolen/ruined it’s better to leave it at home.
Do: Slather on the sunscreen. Whether you’re going for that all-natural summer-beauty look or want to go crazy theatrical with your makeup, remember to layer on the SPF. That goes for the rest of your body too.
Don’t: Wear black. Notice all the bright colors we’ve highlighted? Yes, partially because it’s finally spring and we’re welcoming that warm weather with open arms, but it’s mostly because black absorbs heat—and sweaty-hot-mess is not a good look for anyone.
Do: Bring hand sanitizer. Porta potties—need we say more?
Sure, the music takes center stage, but we’ve been enjoying the sartorial sideshows quite a bit as well. Just when we thought that festival fashion was a parade of denim cut-offs and flower crowns, we came across the eclectic, creative, and compelling trends. This collection of Kiwi street style is like music to our eyes.
Pick a print
Prints are a great way to inject interest in to your festival attire. The more adventurous go bright and go hard. Print on print, matched or mis-matched, anything goes, but this summer it was pineapples all the way. (Other fruits also featured, but, the spikey tropical delight reigned supreme.)
We have no idea exactly who started the pineapple print trend – whether it was inspired by Prada’s SS11 fruit prints and trickled down or not (let’s face it, almost every trend begins with Prada so it probably did).
But, it’s like one day everyone in New Zealand decided it would be a good idea to chuck the fruit onto some fabric. Stolen Girlfriends Club have the most recognisable pineapple print available to date, but the high street stores have also given it a go.
Get onto it immediately because our predictions are the trend ends as this festival season does.
GET THE LOOK:
Stolen Girlfriends Club has a tonne of pineapple print in their current collection and it’s also available at cheaper chain stores – Glassons has a more subtle black and white print pineapple short.
Franks make colourful pineapple print swim shorts for the boys.
Perfect party shoe
If one tries to think of a brand of shoe spotted on all the festival folk, Doc Martens has got to be it. It’s a classic – erring on the ‘rock’ end of the musical spectrum, but also found on hipsters and prepsters alike. There’s a style for everyone, they’ve been around for several years and they’re widely available, which makes it an easy brand to adopt.
Festival-wise, it’s the perfect shoe. Making your way through crowds of people would usually mean stubbed, stood on toes, but when you’ve got a solid pair of boots on your feet, life is a breeze. There’s also the added ‘indie/cool’ factor of being seen in them. The only downfall is the break-in period. Blisters are the death of a festie-goer, make sure they’re well worn in.

Floral halos everywhere
We thought flower crowns at music festivals might have had their hey day a year or two ago, but by what we’ve seen this summer, it seems they’re still going strong. I mean, you can understand why people don them – they’re just the complete representation of youth and freedom and femininity, those colourful flowers dancing above your head whilst swaying to the music, carefree and easy.
Practicality-wise, flower crowns serve very little purpose at a music festival, but we’re talking about fashion trends here, baby, and that halo of flora and fauna is pretty. (And of course by association, you become pretty/prettier, right?) They’re also easy and cheap to make, so almost every one is unique. Like an artwork along ones hairline. Or something.
GET THE LOOK:
This is more of a DIY effort see a good ‘how to’, but if you’re lazy like us, we have been informed that you can purchase them at a stall at the Silo Markets on Friday nights , or there’s a large variety of styles to purchase on Etsy.
The wide brimmed fedora
A hat is
n’t necessarily a fashion trend at an outdoor summer music festival – it’s a necessity, especially in the burning, burning New Zealand sun. We spotted a lot of caps this year, as to be expected, but in a surprise turn of events there was a drop in quantity of straw fedoras and wide brimmed hats seen, only to be replaced with same style in wool.
On the one hand, a wool fedora/wide-brimmed hat seems like a good thing at a festival – it gives you the requisite face shade, a hat always seems to make you look ‘finished’, and it’s easy to hide under. On the other hand, it’s bloody wool in the middle of bloody summer. A lot of people would have been sweltering at this year’s Laneway festival. But you know what they say – beauty is pain.
GET THE LOOK:
I’m not quite sure about this whole Sport Lux thing. I mean I love it, but I’m also skeptical because I feel like it’s just a way to wear comfy sweats out of the gym and still be considered cool. Either way, it’s a thing right now and we might as well embrace it. Sports classic Nike is pretty much leading the way at festivals as far as I can see. New Balance trainers are doing their thing, but Nike runners are obviously the most popular right now.
The benefits of wearing an ‘athletic shoe’ at a music festival are countless, but mostly involve the comfort level the wearer receives. When you think about it, a festival involves a lot of walking around, standing for long periods, and dancing. A shoe built for a marathon is the best thing you could choose to wear. Grab the tick of approval and run with it.
GET THE LOOK:
Everyone’s favourite shades
If there’s a fashionable festival eyewear brand of choice, it’s got to be Karen Walker (or Karen Walker knock offs) for the girls – and not just the ex-private schoolers. (I’ve seen a lot of Ray-Bans for the boys.) It’s safe to say that the New Zealand designer is cleaning up in the sunglass department, with the trademark arrow logotype on the arms of most young females shades across both Laneway and Big Day Out. Karen Walker has really nailed it with the variety in her collections – from the tamer twists on classics (oversized black frames, extra pumped up tortoiseshell on a more ‘standard’ frame) to all out with coloured lenses, big and bold shapes and unexpected colours. There’s something for everyone.

Fashion lessons from Laneway Music Festival:
Flower crowns are STILL a thing, despite my refusal to accept so. Doc Martens, Nikes and Chuck Taylors reign supreme in terms of festival friendly footwear. Anything 90s punky/grungy goes – mesh, stretchy tattoo-esque necklaces, faded ripped mum jeans with check shirts – on pretty much every cool kid in town. Wide brimmed wool hats were headwear of choice. “Vintage” is everyone’s favourite answer when asked: “What are you wearing today?”. Karen Walker eyewear may as well become a sponsor because I have never seen so many pairs in one place in my entire life. Also – plot twist: a surprisingly low (comparative to last year) amount of denim cut-offs spied!
Check out the best festival fashion in the gallery below:
Lorde wore a gown from French fashion house Balenciaga for the Grammys ceremony.
The floor-length black dress – thought to be made from Japanese silk – is from the designer’s pre-autumn collection.
Lorde wore her usual deep purple lipstick after a makeover by MAC Cosmetics senior artist Amber Dreadon, who told the Los Angeles Times she wanted to “keep the look fresh and radiant – modern, a bit boyish and darkly cool with a focus on the lips”.
Lorde’s trademark brunette curls were straightened.
True to her indie style, she did not show up on the red carpet, where celebrities are typically asked which designer they are wearing, leaving many speculating on the Twittersphere.
For her performance of Royals, the Kiwi star wore a white sleeveless shirt by Italian fashion house Prada and loose black pants from French luxury goods brand Celine.
She had social media talking with her unusual choice of nail art.
Her simple monochrome outfit was teamed with black-smudged fingertips which looked as though they had been dipped in ink.
The odd fashion choice quickly prompted its own Twitter account as well as being likened to a symptom of the Black Plague by one US entertainment news website.
Lorde’s fingernails – using the Twitter handle @lordefingernail – tweeted updates, with one saying “I would like to thank my thumb and pinky, without them, these black fingertips would not be possible”.
That was followed by: “@lordemusic can split an atom … with her fingernails. #justthetip.”
And: “The #grammy party starts when Lorde’s fingernails walk in. #partylikearoyal.”
The look did not go down well with entertainment reporters, MTV describing them as “Black Death”.
“During her performance of her hit song Royals, the 17-year-old singer sported black-tipped fingers, which are one of the symptoms of the European pandemic known as the Black Death, or the Black Plague,” it reported.
Elsewhere, the Huffington Post asked its readers whether the fashion statement was “freakin’ fantastic” or “totally terrifying”.
It was slightly more positive though, describing the pop star’s look as “bad ass” and “creative and a bit creepy”.
Lorde had ditched the look when she took to the stage again to collect her award for best pop solo performance.

High school to hang out huge banner
Lorde’s high school will celebrate her achievements by hanging a huge congratulatory banner on the main building for students as they return from their holidays today.
Takapuna Grammar principal Simon Lamb said: “Naturally, Takapuna Grammar school joins the local community in its support and admiration of our local talent, Ella Yelich-O’Connor. We are very proud of her achievements as recognised by the double … win.
“We remain in close contact with Ella and her family.
“I am very proud of her, her music and her achievements.”
Meanwhile, Lorde’s former music teacher at Belmont Intermediate School, Jenny Bezuidenhout, watched the awards with her fingers crossed yesterday.
She cast the teenager as the lead in a musical she wrote called The Case of Greed, and also started the school’s “Idol” competition which Lorde won when she was 12.
“So I’m sitting here saying to my husband ‘Well, she sang my music before she sang her music’,” Mrs Bezuidenhout said.
The teacher said she ran into Lorde’s mother at a shopping centre before Christmas.
“She said, ‘What do you buy a girl that’s got everything?’ I just said to her then, ‘Ella is a gifted individual and she has the potential to really influence her generation through her art’.
“She inspires me … she’s really in touch with herself and how she feels about things and doesn’t rely on the outside world to dictate how she should feel or think. And I really admire that in her because she’s really young.”
Her family had really nurtured her talent and had to take a lot of the credit, the teacher said.
“When she came to school last year, she’s just the same as she ever was. She’s just a lovely individual with an amazing presence and is very, very bright. She’s got it all.”
Style File hung their cameras round their necks at Big Day Out in Auckland, snapping the coolest threads hanging from the music loving crowd. Sun safe accessories were predictably big – oodles of visors, caps and sunnies. The festival fashion overall was a pleasing mixed bag of rockers, hipsters and fashionistas as well as the practical and the comfortable.
Check out some of our favourites in the gallery below and share your thoughts in the comments section:
The spring ads, shot in New York, were photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, the same duo that shot Miranda Kerr’s Mango campaign. Styled by her own personal stylist, Mel Ottenberg, the pop star sits in what we can only assume is a sauna, rocking a full jean and gold ensemble in one shot and pink, kimono-styled separates in the other. And while her face isn’t entirely visible, there’s no mistaking the music star. We can’t wait until next year to see the full campaign.
Style File strolled the red carpet at the New Zealand Music Awards, hunting down the hottest looks for you in this week’s gallery. There was lashings of monochrome, a sprinkling of sparkles, plenty of glam and a couple of copy cats.
We praise the bold (Sandon James), the beautiful (Ladi6) and the James Bond handsome (Rawdon Christie).
WIN! We have three NZ Music Awards packs to give away including a set of five Kiwi music albums and a Pascoes’ Treble Clef and Note Bracelet valued at $89.00. Find out how to enter below.
Copy Cat: New Zealand soul singer Hollie Ridge picked a white fringed Zambesi dress that we’d seen last year on social butterfly, Jaime Ridge. Who do you think wore it better?
Finn Andrews, lead singer and songwriter for London-based indie/alternative rock band The Veils, is rarely seen without his hat. “It’s become far more of a signature than I ever intended but I really do feel weightless without it. Frank Zappa once said ‘wear a hat, be a pressure cooker’.
“I agree,” says the dapper 30-year-old.
After a successful tour of New Zealand in July – as part of their world tour in support of the band’s fourth studio album, Time Stays, We Go – Andrews has already begun to prepare for their next project. “I’m writing another record, composing an orchestral piece for the Anzac memorial in Belgium in 2016, and writing a film with my friend, Squish.”
As for bassist Sophia Burns, when it comes to personal style, a lived-in approach is key.
“Find something you love and let it die on you,” she says. “I wear the same thing for every show. The dress changes about once a year but the shoes haven’t shifted in a long time.
At the moment the dress is a Les Filles en Fleur one that’s probably my favourite ever stage dress.
It’s wearing through in the line where my guitar strap sits though, which is worrying.”
Along with bandmates Uberto Rapisardi, Raife Burchell and Dan Raishbrook, both Andrews and Burns will be touring throughout the Netherlands and Denmark in the next couple of months on the final leg of their tour.
Most influential records:
Finn: “The first ones were probably all Nirvana records. My first band and I played exclusively Nirvana covers and, I think, sometimes Wonderwall. We were pretty badass.”
Sophia: “Sparklehorse’s Good Morning Spider was the first one that made me feel similar feelings to the feelings I have about music now. Patti Smith’s Horses and also Smashing Pumpkins and Radiohead.”
Finn wears shirt and blazer by Crane Brothers and own hat. Sophia wears dress by 3.1 Phillip Lim from Adorno.
“Extremely basic,” is how rapper David Dallas describes his personal style, opting to keep the things simple and let the swagger do the talking.
A black T-shirt, beanie, jeans and Polo socks complete a failsafe wardrobe for the artist, who is due to release a new album, Falling In To Place, which will include an exclusive track recorded with Ruby Frost. With two successful albums already under his belt, Something Awesome (2009) and The Rose Tint (2011); and two EPs – Something Now (2008) and Buffalo Man (2012) – Dallas is one of New Zealand’s most prolific hip-hop and rap artists, with an original sound and style.
“I’ve never really thought about it, but I guess what I wear is just an expression of my taste and influences. I think that’s all it comes down to. For a musician, the music, visuals, design and fashion should all make sense together as an expression of the taste of that individual.”
Most influential records: “Snoop’s Doggystyle, Mobb Deep’s The Infamous. Almost everything I do musically in some shape or form can probably be traced back to those two albums.”
David wears own clothes and Hermes timepiece from DFS Galleria.
It’s hard not to take a second glance at Ruby Frost, with that famous mane of pink hair and sweet smile. However, these days her personal style is anything but saccharine, as she prefers wearing crisp whites and striking metallics, accented by her selection of bold jewellery choices.
“I always wear lots of crystal jewellery. I’m just a magpie, drawn to shiny things.” After a successful season as, arguably, the most popular judge on The X Factor, 26-year-old Frost is looking forward to taking time out to reflect and write again, heading to Sweden next month to collaborate with a range of producers on new material.
It’s an opportunity for the pop vocalist to continue evolving her sound, much like her distinctive look.
“I’m going through a phase of refining everything in my life, and it’s even affecting what I wear. I want everything to be more simple, structured and strong. I’ve been wearing a lot of boxy, monochromatic outfits. But part of me will probably always be drawn to
sparkling materials, metallics and crystals. I think fashion is just a natural extension of whatever story you’re trying to tell as an artist. I seem to always be going through different phases, musically and creatively, and then my perspective on fashion often just moves with everything else.”
Most influential records: “Michael Jackson’s HISTORY compilation defined my childhood. And I remember listening to Mariah Carey’s first album when I was really young and idolising her. A lot of 90s R&B was played in my house, too.”
Ruby wears a dress by Gregory, heels by Miu Miu and her own jewellery.
Chelsea Jade Metcalf’s ethereal vocals, with a backdrop of ambient sound, will no doubt be reflected in a forthcoming collaboration with fashion designer Emily Miller-Sharma from Liam, a label for which Metcalf is also an ambassador. The Watercolours star is collaborating on a wardrobe to align with a music release early next year.
“The content and sound are in cahoots with the concept of the garments. It’s very exciting,” she says. Preferring to wear pants and flat shoes while performing, Metcalf explains that she needs clothes that “allow for maximum full-body flailing.”
After winning the New Zealand Music Awards Critics’ Choice prize last year, she is looking forward to releasing new material soon.
“The record I finished during April in London has been fractured into two E.Ps and they’ll come out in quick succession, starting in mid-November. Meanwhile, Boycrush and I are putting out a dual single combo in September.”
Most influential records: “Jenny Lewis’ Rabbit Fur Coat record defined my taste so aptly in high school that my friend and I attempted to cover the entire album, recording the songs with a Skype headphone into the questionable Windows sound recorder. Some of it is still on YouTube. No shame.”
Chelsea wears a jacket by Comme des Garcons, from Scotties.
You only have to look at the beautifully directed music videos for the singles No Avail (2010), Griffin Boy (2011) and Let’s Take the Road (2012) by Auckland-based band Glass Owls to get an understanding of their overall musical aesthetic. “We feel that style permeates everything you do as a person or artist – our music informs our style and vice versa. So I guess our style is a visual representation of what we’re trying to do m
usically.” The two core members are vocalist Thomas Nelson, 24, and guitarist Anthony Metcalf, 23, who together have created a band that’s quickly gaining a reputation for being the consummate live act. Nelson’s strong vocals are a highlight, and fans can look forward to hearing new material on an 11-track album to be released early 2014.
Most influential records:
Tomas: “The Doors’ Morrison Hotel, Jimi Hendrix’s Experience Hendrix, Johnny Cash’s American IV.”
Anthony: “Spoon’s Girls Can Tell, Wilco’s Summerteeth, Radiohead’s OK Computer.”
Anthony wears A.P.C shirt, Working Style blazer, own jeans and shoes. Tomas wears shirt by Ralph Lauren, coat by Prada, Working Style shoes and own jeans.
Songwriter and performer Anthonie Tonnon sometimes has a case of synaesthesia. “I often see colours with music, and I get a similar feeling with clothes. If everything is working well, style should be an extra layer beyond the music that adds to the experience I’m trying to create, in the same way a backing vocal or a string part can.”
When it comes to deciding what to wear on stage, a classic blazer never goes astray. “I always wear a jacket. To me it announces I’m putting on a show.” After two EPs and an album with his band, Tono and the Finance Company, Tonnon has this year focused on solo performances and touring the country, with an album ready for release early next year.
“I think it’s essential to be playing live to develop an act – little details about the sound, the songwriting and the style are always being refined when I’m on tour. I recently played six dates around New Zealand with Watercolours and my band, and in September I’ll be playing solo in Sydney and Melbourne, and starting a six-week tour of the US with Seattle artist Shenandoah Davis.”
Most influential records: “I was pretty versed in The Beatles and 60s pop as a kid. I taught myself to play guitar by learning all the songs I could from a David Bowie greatest hits cassette tape. But I think my songwriting big bang was a trip to the Dunedin Public Library when I was 17, where I got out The Strokes’ Is This It, Ryan Adams’ Heartbreaker and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds’ No More Shall We Part, all based on the newspaper reviews librarians had stuck to the covers.”
Anthonie Tonnon wears a jacket by Vanishing Elephant and shirt by Prada.
