Festival attire has come a long way. In the past, we threw on a worn in T-shirt, a pair of utilitarian shorts and headed out the door. But over the last 10 years, music festivals have gone from niche to blockbuster productions and the fashion has followed suit. Both big box retailers and local brands alike drop special collections just for the season, and the options are seemingly limitless.  

The only question is, what is your festival style? Vintage? Classic? Hippy? Sporty? Whatever you decide, there is a cute outfit waiting for you right here in NOLA.

To get a leg up, we asked several local boutique owners, tastemakers and even our own New Orleans Magazine editor for inspiration on what to wear this year. Happy festing!
