festival season

It’s officially festival season, which means festival fashion is here!

HOLR is breaking down the hottest festival trends to watch out for this year plus what to wear for the ultimate festival-inspired look. From mesh as the moment of the year, to which shades will perfectly complement your outfit, let’s talk festival fashion in 2022.

Mesh as the moment

From mesh tops to mesh dresses, mesh is a festival staple you will definitely be seeing everywhere. This breathable fabric is perfect for day or night, and is a must-have for festivals such as Coachella, which takes place in a hotter climate.  What’s great about mesh is that you can customize the look to your liking. For instance, you can pair a fun bikini top or sports bra under a mesh top for a pop of colour. You can also add a slip underneath a mesh dress to control the amount of coverage.

Mesh can be edgy, yet playful making it a top-trending festival look you’ll love to style. Check out some of our favourite mesh outfits to rock this festival season.

Make the ultimate mesh statement in this must-have bodycon dress. Featuring a multi hue mesh material with a vibrant snake print pattern, this just screams festival vibes.

From mini to micro

The mini trend is slowly evolving into the micro trend. There’s no doubt that micro fashion will be taking over festival season with the rise of micro mini skirts, crop tops and dresses. The micro trend is another super customizable trend that you can incorporate into any  style. For example, you can pair a micro crop top with denim for a 90s inspired look. You can also pair a micro dress with some cowboy boots to add a bit of western flair to your look. The possibilities are endless and you can make them all your own.

We’ve rounded up some micro must-haves below to add to your festival fashion wish list.

Baby tees are the micro fashion trend we love to see making a comeback! This 2000s fad is back and better than ever in this Blondie Live In Concert Shrunken Tee. Not only is it the perfect festival-inspired top, but it also pays tribute to CBGB, the legendary NYC music club.

A skort is a the perfect cross between a skirt and a pair of shorts. Basically, it offers the best of both worlds! This pink skort from CULTNAKED adds the perfect pop of colour to any look. It’s also great for festival season because it allows you to incorporate the micro trend into your look without going over the top.

Retro sunglasses

Sunglasses are a festival necessity. Since festivals can last all day and go well into the night, it’s important to add a layer of protection to your eyes during the day with a pair of sunnies. This year, retro-inspired sunglasses are coming in hot as a must-have accessory for festival season. Check out some of our favourite retro-style shades below that you can use to amp up your festival look.
