It’s been a minute (or two very long years), but the festival fashion trends for 2022 are finally a legitimate talking point. Slowly but surely, then all of a sudden, festival season has returned. It’s kind of like falling in love, there’s so much anticipation and emotion, then you suddenly find yourself days away from the date with nothing to wear. However, shopping for 2022 music festivals is a bit like looking at a blank slate.

My Pinterest board and Instagram saved folders don’t contain any photos of actual festival goers since 2019 (remember the pre-era??), so it feels like inspiration is coming out of nowhere. Luckily, or sadly honestly, we’re all in the same boat here, which can only mean one thing: anything goes for festival fashion this year.

I’m talking minimalist denim, maximalist feathers, your boyfriend’s rugby shirt, and completely sheer ensembles. My prediction of all is well doesn’t come without a lot of research to back it up. I searched through thousands of street-style photos and crossed the biggest trends with the Revolve site (nerd alert!). While I’m sure you can wear just about anything your heart desires and make the best-dressed list, I’ve put together my predictions for the 10 biggest festival trends for 2022 to inspire you.

Adorable knit bucket hats have been hot on trend after Hailey Bieber, Bella Hadid and Dua Lipa all rocked the style on vacation. With the intense festival sun beating down on you all weekend, it’s a trendy way to get some shade. Pair it with a knit outfit or add some fun sunglasses to complete the look.

The cutout maxi dress was designed to comfortably show off some skin. The angled cutouts are super flattering and instantly create an hourglass shape, so there’s no need to worry about a bad photo angle in this dress. This style of dress is usually created with a lightweight knit or stretchy knit fabric so you look warm without feeling too hot. Pair it with a simple shoulder bag and statement earrings, and you’re good to go.

Maasai dress

This ombre sorbet dress will take you from casual artists of the day to headliners of the night. It also comes in a solid white and black option if you’re looking to create some pairing moment with your friends.

Full denim looks are having a moment and the best part about them is that they fit any mood. If you’re heading to a country music festival, go for a vintage western look. If you’re heading to a rock or rap gig, go for oversized grunge. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different washes and colors. A denim ensemble is also ideal as it can be worn on a daily basis once the festival season is over.

Pedal pushers are at the top of my list for predicting festival trends. The style has a mix of retro 70s and 2000s vibes that reminds me of a music festival. It’s also the perfect alternative to wearing long pants (which might look a little formal for a festival) or a skirt. Check your local vintage stores for a cool patterned pair (like the one pictured above) and have fun mixing and matching.

These floral pedal pushers are a necessity for a 90s inspired bohemian look. Pair the pants with matching groovy halter top.

See-through dresses are sexy and cool, but finding a suitable occasion to wear them can be tricky. I’m here to officially tell you that a music festival is the occasion. Sheer dresses come in short, long, patterned, bright and neutral jumpsuits, so there’s no reason not to make this one of your many festival looks.

This Kim Shui knit dress with crystal floral details is exactly what you should be wearing if you’re trying to break the internet (in a good way). You’ll be coming back to this dress as the main event for years to come.

In the past, festival fashion was all about maximalism, but sometimes just playing it off as a great way to stand out. Wearing a pair of baggy jeans with a simple t-shirt will give you an effortlessly cool look. Complete the look with a bomber jacket to stay warm when the sun goes down.

Easy, airy and of course beautiful will be your personal slogan in a knit set. If comfort is at the top of your festival priority list, you can’t go wrong with a matching lightweight knit ensemble. These come in many forms, including jumpsuits, crop tops, and bra sets. It’s also a great option for pre-festival activities like pool parties, snacks, and golf cart rides.

If Hailey Bieber can wear a blazer in virtually any setting, so can you. Pair a fun blazer with something casual, like denim shorts, and show the music industry you mean business. Throw your blazer over a group tee to be the sophisticated groupie.

There’s something that looks so cool about very causal pieces (like a rugby shirt) paired with elevated accessories (like a Bottega Veneta metallic bag). Put on a fun rugby shirt with shorts or a mini skirt, then play with the details: dazzling bags, futuristic sunglasses and colorful shoes.

The feather trim was everywhere during fashion week and I predict the look will also fly with the festival fashion crowd. Feathers can either be the complete look or incorporated into details with trims and accessories.
