The sheer essence of the brighter seasons calls for the reawakening of denim. One classic festival look we love to see in summer is the denim skirt outfit. You just can’t go wrong with an all-blue number, especially when complemented with a pair of statement cowboy boots. Britney would be proud!

It’s time to ditch the crops and say hello to crochet tops this summer. Crochet pieces have gained immense popularity recently, with Pinterest searches for crochet tops in particular having increased by 80% since the start of the year.
- Crochet dress – 70.1% increase
Another statement crochet piece that we’re all loving at the moment is the crochet dress. We’ve seen many of these being sported in Coachella pics, and there’s no denying the vintage patterned fabric is an iconic look that is guaranteed to get you noticed.
- Cowboy boots – 69.4% increase
With searches for cowboy boots having recently increased by 69.4%, it seems that the chic Carrie Underwood look is most certainly going to make a few appearances at everyone’s next festival. Sexy and sensational, these bad boys take the generic shoe game to the next level and bring ‘Party in the USA’ vibes.
- Cargo pants – 62.3% increase
It’s officially the season where it is acceptable to wear a pair of baggy trousers with a nice tank top. One particular pair of trousers we all seem to be obsessing over is cargo pants. Not only are these utility-chic trousers super stylish, but they are also convenient for storing away your possessions with their selection of handy pockets.
- Mesh dress – 52.8% increase
Seeing as the weather is getting warmer, it would be rude not to dig out the mesh that’s been hiding in your wardrobe all winter. Mesh dresses have been a statement festival look for quite some time now, and with Pinterest searches for this outfit having increased by 52.8%, we definitely expect to see quite a few of these being worn this festival season.
- Boho cowgirl style western chic – 46.3% increase
Hippy, earthy, and ever so chic, the Bohemian style has been a trend that has defined not just our wardrobes, but our homes as well. From what we’ve seen at Coachella, it seems that the vibe is all about combining this niche style with a touch of a Western cowboy aesthetic. Given the similarity of the two styles, this mashup definitely makes sense.

As mentioned, crochet fashion is really having a moment this festival season. But it’s not just about the dresses and tops – crochet bucket hats are also a well-desired accessory on everyone’s festival inspo list.
