Ticket? Check. Schedule arranged? Check. What to wear? Great question. Festivals are fickle things. The weather changes, there are rules about what you can bring, you’re galavanting back and forth through dirt for miles a day in an effort to make your $500+ ticket worth it. So don’t miss an act and don’t be miserable watching it! These accessories will help make that happen.

Nothing like loving something but being stuck on what color to get it in. With this 4-pack of universally fun and flattering rectangle sunglasses, you don’t have to! Plus, if you lose a pair, there’s three more waiting for you.
You can’t go wrong with this classic pair, whether you’re wearing a dress, or a parka, or a guy or gal. The UV400 lenses and solid metal hinges ensure you’ll be using them for a long time.
Another bundle option, show your best ’80s SoCal beach vibe with these interchangeable lenses. The main colored lenses block UV400, which can block ultraviolet rays and strong light during the day, gray blocks UV rays and glare, and the yellow lens is used at night — perfect for evening acts.
Live out your inner Bella Hadid/Hailey Beiber/Kardashian clan fantasy with these teeny petal shaped sunglasses. Do they provide much coverage? Nope. Are they an eye-catching accessory? Yep!
Most festivals these days don’t allow bags bigger than a small crossbody — usually 6x8x2 — but clear bags can be as big as you want. So if you plan on having a water bottle and space for your jacket, this is your guy.
Sturdy, lightweight, with a lot of storage spaces and a breathable mesh strap, this clear bag is a great blend of practical fashion.
The best thing about this cute lil guy? The shoulder straps are detachable, meaning it can be converted into a backpack, crossbody bag, or handbag, depending on your needs.
You can look cute wearing a fanny pack! Not only shiny, this neon PU leather goodie repels water — no sweat about spilled drinks — and then lining is wear-resistant polyester, meaning it won’t fade.
This heritage red item from Lululemon can easily hold your phone, wallet, keys and sunglasses. Designed for being on the move, it’s water-repellent and easy to wipe clean.
If cause you didn’t already know, bucket hats are having a moment. No longer only relegated to babies or retirees, they are peak fashion! This one is a double hitter, blending trendy tie-dye with the covetable style.
Hello, pistachio! Fun and casual, this cotton goodie is lightweight but will protect you from UV rays, and make a statement.
This has provides UPF 50+ sun protection and is made of a dense straw weave. Stylish and classy, it’s also packable so you don’t have to be walking in a beach hat after the sun goes down.
Outer space — it’s endlessly fascinating. Show people you’re into it with this NASA hat. We especially love this denim distressed version of the timeless logo.
This one’s for all the meme-heads out there. Show everyone how internet-savvy you are with this Kermit the frog sipping tea (none of my business!) dad cap. Cute and practical, it’ll be a conversation starter for sure.
There are shirts and there are jackets, and then — there are shackets. The one is made of a super-soft fabric for the inevitable cold — and fog if you’re in the Bay Area — and is a cozy, oversized fit.
This warm sherpa fleece jacket is incredibly versatile, equally as good on the festival grounds as it is on a morning dog-walk, coffee run. Available in many colors, the neutral tones are standouts.
Another lovely oversized shacket, this time in corduroy. It features two decorative pockets on the front, and two practical and functional pockets on sides. Dress it up with your favorite jeans for a cute and casual look.
Whether you pair it with skinny jeans and ankle boots, or with leggings and sneakers, this heavy cropped jacket will elevate any festival ensemble.
Made from a soft and comfy fabric — with a little stretch — this plaid, drop shoulder jacket is endlessly fashionable and great for every day or making a statement.
