2019 Festival Szn Gets a Wild West Makeover

Updated: Jan 15



Festival season is in full effect. If you haven’t felt the rush of neon outfits and live music yet, you’re about to. With Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza, and Coachella taking over our feeds and small talk, it’s clear that aside from the music the next hot topic is all about fashion. We’ve been scoping out the hottest trends for these 2019 summer festival looks. Some things are clear: Western wear has inspired the latest trends - maybe Lil Nas X’s ‘Old Town Road’ - but if one thing’s for sure, everything from fringe, western belts, bandanas and white cowboy boots are taking the festival fashion market by storm. These trends can create modern looks for an unforgettable summer festival outfit.


Fringe can inspire many different looks, each unique in its own way. Here are our favorite fringe pieces you can find online that are perfect for any festival.

  • Revolve Hannah Mae Top costs $128. It comes in black and white with fringe hem.

  • Nasty Gal Fringe Watch Mini Skirt currently $20

  • Forever 21 Satin Purple Set is online only. I am currently obsessed with lavender and fringe layering.


The western belt is a timeless accessory that can be the finishing touch and focal point of your festival look no matter the style.

  • Nasty Gal Olivia Western Belt is $10, which is a great deal! It’s a classic black leather belt with a western buckle.

  • The Forever Studded Etched comes in black and white for $9.90. The belt has a slick, white surface with silver studs across it with a western-inspired buckle.

  • Free People Iris Embroidered Western Belt for $58. This belt is more expensive than the other options, but its black statement leather features a detailed white embroidered design along with a western-inspired buckle.


Bandanas are so versatile and affordable. There are different ways to style it with your outfit: it can be worn around your neck, on a belt loop, as a headband or around a ponytail to create a different look each time you decide to wear it.

  • Traditional Paisley Mashup Bandana is $12 on Urban Outfitters. This is a silky-smooth bandana that has detailed black and white paisley.

  • Francesca’s Myla Classic Bandana is on sale for $10. It’s a soft cotton fabric and has slight frays on the end.

  • Free People Bandana Scarf Pony is $12. The scrunchie features a bandana design and comes in 12 different colors with white paisley detailing.


White cowboy boots are new trend that we cannot get enough of. Here are our favorite boots.

  • UO Lynn Cowboy Boot features white faux leather, classic western detail + a pointed toe. They sell for $98.00.

  • Steve Madden Bark Western Bootie feature a buckle with silver hammered detailing and a classic western pointed toe. They’re currently on sale for 64.98!

  • Free People High Noon Western Boot is $498.00. Now, this boot is more expensive, but it is truly one of a kind. It’s created with handmade leather that features embroidered designs with sparkling threads.


Take these trends, add your own flare, and run with it. These aren’t your traditional staple items, but they’re perfect to reuse for all the summer festivals you’re planning to attend this season. Don’t forget - dress appropriately as the heat can get brutal. Tag us in your photos on social media so we can get more inspiration to share with the Uproar. Happy festival-ing!
