The Grown-Up Guide To Festival Dressing

If you're headed to Barcelona for this month's Primavera Sound, there's not much we can say besides #blessed. But, if we put that envy aside for a hot second, it's clear one major question remains: What should you pack to simultaneously cover your festival needs and your desire to fit in with the Spanish locals? Allow us to offer a few suggestions, all from our festival partner in crime, H&M.

To give your style a little more European flair, forgo denim cutoffs and daisy crop tops this time around — Primavera fashion is all about comfortable, breezy pieces that are polished enough to sport around the city, too. Think simple, loose silhouettes, like linen trousers, jumper dresses, and billowy off-the-shoulder tops. A suede, fringe topper is a must for chillier nights, and since high temps hover around 75 degrees, you can swap your Chelsea boots for blush-toned slip-ons.

If you don't already have a Euro trip in the works, what's ahead may be just the push you need to put plans in motion.
