shortdress
A short lace dress keeps you cool and cute, and if you style it right, it won't feel too precious for an outdoor fest. Add a rugged denim vest and rough-and-tumble flat boots to temper the girly frock with plenty of rock-'n'-roll edge.

boyfriendjean
Great boyfriend jeans will guarantee that you're comfy and ready to face whatever the day holds, whether it's a sudden downpour or some impromptu crowd-surfing. Pair a broken-in, cuffed pair with a soft tank and a sporty (but not too sporty) jacket, then throw on some hi-top wedge sneakers to keep it all on-trend.

romper
Nothing says "all-day music extravaganza" like a romper, right? We like the unique cut of the shorts on this colorful number, and it pairs perfectly with a leg-lengthening nude sandal, a neon bag, and a practical (but still adorable) straw hat.
