How to Look Hotter Than a Desert: Festival Fashion Trends in 2024

Whether you go for the killer music, celebrity spotting, or overpriced food, everyone loves a festival. Possibly the only thing people love more are festival fashion trends. 

Over the years, festivals have become increasingly known for their fashion. From major, A-list celebrities, to regular consumers, people spend months planning out their outfit to be absolutely perfect. 

So, how do you make certain that your festival fashion stands out from the rest? By following the latest festival fashion trends of course. 

Read on to find out the best festival fashion trends, so you can look your best this festival season. 



Part of the broader 1970’s trend we have seen dominating both 2023 and 2024, fringe is a must have for this festival season. One of the more accessible festival fashion trends, simply don a cute fringe jacket, or splash out on some Western inspired fringed shorts to join in on the fun. 

Want to really stand out? Try taking the 1920’s route to this trend. Major runways have been seen sporting fringe on flapper-esque outfits, so channel your inner Gatsby and dance the night away in some Roaring Twenties gear.

Cowboy Fashion 

The cowboy aesthetic has had a tight lasso on popular culture for quite some time. 

From major pop artists like Harry Styles, to indie bands like BoyGenius, cowboy motifs have been spotted absolutely everywhere. In terms of festival fashion trends, this style is sure to pop up in the form of cowboy hats, cowboy boots, groovy shirts and quirky earrings. 

Want to take it one step further? Add a touch of glitter. Space cowboy as a sub-genre continues to be majorly popular, so add some pink sparkles to your cowboy hat and have a yeehaw of a good time.

Denim is in, and we aren’t talking about some simple shorts or maybe a denim shirt. We mean denim, on denim, on denim, on denim. Think Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake and then add another layer of denim. 

Denim is one of the more functional festival fashion trends, given its durability and ease of wash. Be sure to opt for something hardy that will last, so you can enjoy your festival denim long after you’ve finally washed that last grain of sand out of it three months later. 

The real pros will be combining this trend with the micro mini shorts boom; think itty bitty denim shorts paired with a denim vest and a big chunky belt.

Sheer is here. 

Sheer is the new look of choice in terms of festival fashion trends. TikTok fashionistas everywhere are jumping in on this trend, donning white lace maxi skirts. Throw on a black unitard, a massive belt, and some big chunky shoes, and you’ve got the hottest look of the season.

Micro-mini shorts 

If there’s one fashion item that has everybody up in arms, it’s this. 

Micro-mini shorts have been the talk of the town since major names such as Miu Miu featured them on their latest runways. The look is simple, think Glastonbury 2008, Alexa Chung level short shorts, and then make them even shorter. 

To really knock this out of the park, pair it up with other festival fashion trends like chunky cowboy boots and some tasteful fringe. 


Micro skirts and shorts galore… plus one maxi skirt lol #coachella #coachellaoutfit #festival #coachellafestival #coachella2024 #coachellafashion #festivalseason #festivalinspo #outfitideas #festivaloutfit #festivaloutfits #festivalfashion

Bikini tops 

Festivals are hot. Not just fun hot, but middle of the desert, sun beaming down on you for eight hours hot. So, finding an outfit that fits in with festival fashion trends but doesn’t leave you sweating is essential. 

Enter bikini tops, one of our favourite festival fashion trends and certainly the coolest. We are loving pairing a simple, back bikini top with a crochet shirt thrown on top. Or, paired with a sheer skirt for that ultimate, laid back, festival chic.

It may be a curveball, but that’s what festival fashion is all about. Throw on your favourite sloppy jersey with some itty bitty shorts, the biggest pair of boots you can find, and a massive cowboy hat. The result is a look that is all at once fashionable, breezy, cute, and uniquely 2024. 

Jerseys are a great option for those last few days of a festival where you still want to serve, but don’t have the energy.

Crochet is back and it’s here to stay. 

Crochet has always been a festival staple for years now, due to its versatility and comfortability. This year, crochet is leaning into its 1970’s roots. Think earth tones, simple patterns, and plenty of tiny tops. 

This look is super easy to pair with any and all of your other favourite festival fashion trends. Over on TikTok, the girlies are selecting matching crochet sets, crochet tops with their micro-mini shorts, and adding a layer of crochet to their double denim outfits.

Want to look like you’ve stepped straight out of Tron onto the Coachella stage? Cutouts are the way to go. 

Cutouts have been making the rounds on TikTok, with fashion experts everywhere loving this trend; especially when seen on earth toned, stretchable fabric. This trend is particularly prevalent in matching sets, with fashion brands from Oh Polly to Nasty Gal touting matching skirt and shirt combos with cutouts to the extreme. 

Pair your best cutout set with some extra large sneakers and your favourite nylon bag, and you’re Coachella ready.
