We often count on Europeans and their sartorial wisdom to inspire us beyond our summer uniform of cutoffs and tanks. Whether we're taking in their style via on-the-street snaps from various Fashion Weeks or traveling among them abroad, their fearless approach to dressing and risk-taking is something we always strive to channel. And, it's one of the many reasons we're stoked to pack up and cross the pond for Sweden's Way Out West Festival
Essentially the Scandinavian version of Governors Ball, Way Out West Fest boasts one of the best lineups of the season, featuring Patti Smith, Florence + The Machine, ILoveMakonnen, and more. And, if last year's patterned-filled style explosion
is any indication of the aesthetics to come this year, then you'll be more than covered with these packables from H&M
. Gear up for lots of sunshine (Sweden is known for its unheard-of daylight hours, with sunrises as early as 3:30 a.m. and sunsets as late as 10 p.m.), and throw in a few boho prints to fit right in with the Nordic It crowd. Even if your next adventure keeps you on American soil, there's no reason you can't dress like a Swedish girl wherever you go.
