1. Bold Colours

Bold colours

2022 is set to basically be a psychedelic world of colour with some seriously bold moments – and we love it.

The possibilities really are endless with this festival fashion trend, from staple accessories like handbags and belts to a pop of colour.

It’s safe to say this particular trend is waving goodbye to all the negativity and bad vibes throughout 2020!

ASOS have definitely passed the vibe check with this co-ord oversized polar fleece jacket, perfect for festival fashion.

2. Headwear

Headwear is a festival fashion trend that often comes back every year, but it’s particularly popular for 21/22!

If you want to look super #extra when attending your festival of choice, you’ve got to get some headwear.

Etsy have some really crazy pieces destined to make heads turn, so the question is, are you feeling bold?

3. Pastel Colours

Pastel colours

Did you know? The colour trend for 2022 is blue, a colour said to signify trustworthy and safety.

This is one of the main reasons to invest in some pastel colours in your wardrobe for 2021/2022 festivals!

Whether you go for a baby blue or a soft lilac, it’s safe to say that pastel colours are in, and bigger than ever.

Head over to Boohoo and you’ll find a whole section of pastel-coloured pieces to add to your festival fashion vibe.

Funnily enough, there’s actually a bit of psychology behind pastel colours, with psychologists claiming they feel gentle and soothing!

4. Earthy Tones

Another colour scheme that’s going to be super big in the next couple of years is earthy tones.

Some say it’s a direct response to the global pandemic, and the need to retreat into the home, with a focus on soothing, homely colours.

Pinterest has plenty of inspiration to add some pizzazz to your festival wardrobe, with earth tones galore!

Expect shades of green, soft greys, slate, and the colours of the earth to take up your festival wardrobe.

5. Chunky Boots

Chunky boots

Of course, chunky boots make our list! So get ready to throw away those old muddy wellies and really invest.

Take a look on Nasty Gal for some inspiration, with ASOS offering some awesome pieces too.

Chunky boots can make any outfit look seriously edgy and just straight-up cool, especially with an oversized tee.

If you’re wanting to save a bit of money on your chunky boot purchase, EGO have some good bargains!

6. Double Denim

Double denim festival fashion

Okay, hear us out here…double denim is back! We know that’s hard to believe, but after extensive research, it would appear so.

We’re not telling you to wear a bright blue denim jacket with bright blue jeans though, mix up the shades this festival season!

Festival fashion is 100% going to see a spike in double denim, with different shades, broad colour palettes and cowboy vibes.

If you’re a little unsure, opt for denim shorts as opposed to denim jeans, it’s less material and won’t be as noticeable!

7. Tie-Dye


Yasssss tie-dye is back! Another retro trend that’s fully taken festival fashion by storm, and we’re so here for it.

Tie-dye loungewear definitely had it’s moment in 2020, particularly in loungewear when we were all told to stay at home.

BUT, it’s actually still going to be around for spring/summer 2021, so make sure you grab some pieces ASAP!

A staple back in the 1960’s, it’s no wonder that tie-dye is very common amongst festival fashion, it’s bright, cool, and vibey.

Once again, ASOS are killin’ it with their tie-dye selection, with plenty of vibrant, bold colours to choose from.

8. Bucket Hats

Bucket hats festival fashion

You either love or hate bucket hats, and we’re going to have to say we love them, especially for festival fashion!

Bucket hats can really add a bit of flair to any bland outfit – it’s like you don’t even have to try.

Granted, bucket hats aren’t for absolutely everyone, but when you love them, you love them!

There are some seriously “out there” designs to choose from, like this one, or you could go for something more toned down.

Just be careful it’s not too hot when you choose to wear your bucket hat, you may end up being pretty hot!

9. Oversized Tees

Oversized tees

There’s nothing like a good old, oversized tee, whether that be a band tee or just something with a super simple design.

Oversized t-shirts always seem to be in fashion, probably because they’re super versatile and easy to style!

They’re cute, comfortable, and casual, perfect for festival fashion so you can dance with ease.

Boohoo has a cool selection of oversized tees and there’s a big focus on pastel colours for summer too – good times!

10. Think Pink
