Festival Outfits You Can Make in 5 Minutes (With No Sewing Required)


The time has come to look beyond basic jean shorts and crop tops. These festival outfit ideas will make you the best-dressed person at the party—without any sewing required!

A rosette bralette

You can make this rosette bralette in five minutes—and it looks great. All you need is a bralette (available at any lingerie shop), some rosettes, and a hot glue gun.

  • First, cut the center of your bralette off with scissors so that it's completely open on both sides.

  • Next, attach some small rosettes using hot glue on top of each other to create a thicker band around the outside edge of the opening of your bralette. This will also hide any imperfections from cutting out your own design!

  • Finally, give yourself an extra pop by adding one larger rosette in the center front section of your new piece!

A feathered headband

Feather headbands are a festival staple, and they're also super easy to make. You can get a good look from almost anywhere, but we love this quick tutorial from YouTube user [Kandee Johnson](https://www.youtube.com/user/kandeejohnson).

You'll need:

  • A feather boa (you could also use peacock feathers or stork feathers)

  • A ribbon of your choice (we like the one in this tutorial)

  • Tape measure and scissors

Directions: Start by measuring how long you want your headband to be and cutting the ribbon accordingly. Tape one end of your ribbon down on top of itself to form an L shape; then tape both ends together so they stick out like tree branches! To secure it around your head, loop it under itself until it fits comfortably without being too tight or loose around your ears—then wrap it around again so that both ends are hidden behind where they meet at the back of your head...

A printed maxi dress

A printed maxi dress is an excellent festival outfit. You can try it with a statement necklace, like this one from Urban Outfitters ($38). Or mix it up with a statement belt, like the one below from Supreme Stitches (around $12). Wear it with chunky heels or sandals, or even sneakers if you're feeling sporty. A statement hat would be fun too!

Cutout booties

Cutout booties are an extremely versatile and easy-to-make piece of festival clothing. They are a great way to add some edge to an outfit, or they can be worn with more casual outfits.

All you need is a pair of scissors—and if you don't have those on hand at the moment, then get them from your desk drawer, because you're going to need them anyways!

Metallic temporary tattoos

If you're looking for a super fast way to add some sparkle to your festival look, temporary tattoos are the perfect solution. They come in all kinds of colors and designs, and they're easy to apply and remove. You can get them in a variety of shapes (flowers are especially popular) or even buy temporary tattoos that look like real jewelry!

Festival-ready outfits

  • Rosette bralette. A simple knit or crochet rosette can easily be made in a few minutes, making it one of the most versatile festival accessories you can own. You can use this to make a bra that's both comfortable and cute—or wear it on your wrist or as a necklace!

  • Feather headband. Feathers are everywhere at festivals, so why not bring some into your wardrobe? With a little bit of felt and hot glue (or fabric glue), you'll be ready to dance all night long with one of these beauties around your neck or on top of your 'do.

  • Printed maxi dress. Maxi dresses have been trending for years now for good reason: They're super comfy, easy to throw on at any time, and look great with almost anything else in your closet (think boots). This is perfect for those daytime parties where everyone is still trying to get their groove on but doesn't want to go full-out rave gear just yet!

  • Cutout booties. These shoes are perfect for summer nights when things get more intimate than usual; from outdoor concerts under the stars all the way up through after hours clubbing sessions—these will keep you looking sharp without having to sacrifice comfortability in favor of style points!
