1. What To Wear To A Beach Festival And How To Pick The Outfit?

This is a question that has many possible answers, as there are many types of beach festivals and different kinds of events.

However, there are a few general tips that can help you choose the perfect outfit for any beach festival if you ask the right questions.

If you want to jump straight to the women’s outfits click here or for the men’s outfits click here!

First, What Kind Of Beach, Rocky, Sandy, Or Dusty?

Make some research about the location of the festival, and know more about what kind of beach and the kind of climate you will see.

Knowing what kind of climate you will face will give you a good idea of whether to go with loose-fitting or tight, close-to-the-skin clothes.

People tend to say that if the climate is tropical which means the humidity in the air is high you should favor loose-fitting clothes and if it is a dry climate to go with tight clothing.

While some people agree with this theory, it does not work like that for everyone, so we recommend trusting yourself. Get to know the climate and dress accordingly.

Then, you really have to think through your footwear and for that, you need to know what type of beach the festival will take place in and furthermore you will have to also know what kind of activities you will be doing there (more on that right below).

Second, What Activities Will You Be Doing At The Festival?

Think about the activities you will be doing at the festival.

Some festivals offer many activities throughout the event, and you do not want your outfit to prevent you from enjoying them.

For instance, if you plan on doing any physical activity, make sure to wear clothes that will allow you to move freely while not having any outfit malfunction.

Furthermore, as explained above you also want to have proper footwear no matter what you decide to do.

For beach events, we recommend bringing regular flip-flops or sandals and close footwear.

The reason you might need this pair of closed shoes is for:

  • Rocky beaches,
  • Some activities where need you to be agile with your feet
  • The night when cold on your feet
  • And finally, if you are the type of person that likes to dance at the front where the crowd is usually hectic and where people don’t really care where if they step on people’s feet or not…

Take both your flip-flops/sandals with you in your backpack and you will be happy you got them.

3. How To Dress For The Weather

Get Ready For The Sun

Sun exposure is probably the most harmful of all because that is one that is often overlooked by the crowd at beach festivals.

We actually can not blame them as there are two reasons why people are caught by surprise by the sun.

  1. The number one reason would be because people have access to the ocean of the sea, so as soon as they get too hot they go for a dip to cool down and because of this they do not feel the heat as much and forget to protect themselves until it is too late.
  2. They actually do protect themselves with sunscreen but either go in the water and forget to put it back on, or they are not aware that sunscreen protection only last a couple of hours, and they don’t re-apply.

Even when cloudy we get a ton of UVs during the day so bring a hat, sunscreen and when possible wear a t-shirt to protect your skin and do your best to avoid too much sun exposure.

Also, remember to protect your eyes and bring sunglasses as the sun reflects on the sand as well.

Classic Round Sunglasses

Remember to drink water as well!

Camelback Sojourner

Standard Camelback

Get Ready For The Cold

That is going to depend on the location of the festival.

In some locations, the heat stays fairly high all night, but in other locations, the temperature can drop dramatically.

Get to know a bit about the area and if it is cold during the night make sure you bring an extra layer, so you are covered when the temperature drops and when you are not dancing as much.

Windbreaker women

Windbreaker men

Get Ready For The Wind

The wind should not be a problem during the day as the sun will be up, but at night if the temperature drops to the lows the wind can be your worst enemy.

Your ideal option would be a windbreaker; it is small, easy to carry, and very light.

Sunglasses are also a must when it really gets windy as small particles fly with the air and can land in your eyes, even small particles of dust can be annoying or even painful.

Get Ready For The Dust And Or Sand

Dust and sand fall under the same category even though the dust has an extra element to be aware of.

For Dust:

As dust is lighter than sand, and crowds being in constant motion during a festival, if the area is dusty, you will see a fair amount of dust rising in the air and reaching mouth level, which means that you are breathing dust.

So if you want to be able to breathe properly when there is too much dust in the air bandanas can be a great option to cover your mouth and protect yourself from most of the dust in the air.

It will not be perfect we give you that but in the long run, you will feel the difference.

Headbands Stretch

Head Neck Scarf

For Both Dust And Sand

Whether it is sand or dust, once on-site it goes everywhere so if you want to be prepared for both we strongly recommend ziplocks to put your vulnerable items and your fresh clothes in.

As you will see there are different sizes of ziplocks, small ones for phones, watches, wallets, or jewelry, and bigger ones, so you can put a whole outfit or a jumper.

You will find both reusable ones and ecological ones, take what you feel is best for you.

Ziploc bags

Get Ready For The Rain

For beach festivals, rain is not necessarily a problem as everyone is wearing clothes that can go in the water or if not completely they have clothes that can be wet.

But we come back with our ziplock system in case you did bring with you your phone or if you have other vulnerable items, so you can protect them from getting wet.

Also, as we said earlier, in some places temperatures can decrease a lot so add to that chilly wind and cold rain you might not have the best time if this occurs.

This is why we recommend a windbreaker, so it will protect you from both rain and wind and as soon as the sun goes down you know you will be covered.

Also, grab some Universal Waterproof Pouch for your Cellphone

4. Popular Styles And Examples

Beach festivals are great opportunities to get new music festival outfit ideas and go crazy on festival fashion.

Many styles are displayed during those kinds of events and usually, people fall into one of those 6 categories.

You can fully jump into either one of those categories or do a mix-and-match to create your own style.

Here are a few examples for each category.


If you go for Bohemian you can start with either a summer robe, some fringe skirts, or pants rompers for the bottom and add some beautiful and cute bralette for the top.

To complete the outfit add some silver pieces of jewelry for your neck, ears, and wrists.


In festival clothing, boho-chic is one of the most famous categories out there and it works really well with beach environments.

To pull it off you could use the same base as Bohemian with some cute summer dress or skirts/shorts with fringes and a beautiful bralette with a kimono on top.

You can also add some hats and removable tattoos that will greatly complete the look.


Sportwear is also one of the most used categories for festival clothes as you can easily sweat and move in them with no problems.

Sportwear comes down to sports shorts for the bottom with a technical shirt or tank-top for the top.


Ravey outfits is a full world on its own and also works really well with beach events.

As an example, you could wear a pair of shorts with fishnet tights under and have a unique sexy top (as shown in the beach festival outfits section, here).


Swimwear is already a thing regarding music festival outfits as people wear them, so they can sweat and be wet without ruining their outfits, and they are the most relevant for beach events.

You could either go beach matching sets or go rogue and mix and match tops and bottoms.


Casual will usually be some denim shorts (what some call the mom shorts) for the bottom and crop tops for the top.

Also, as during the day it will be hot, forget your straight pants suede jackets combination it will not work there (we have seen this…).

5. Conclusion And Inspiration

In order to choose the perfect outfit for your beach festival, it helps to first understand a bit about the location climate, the venue area and the activities that will be taking place.

Once you have an idea of what to expect, any style can work from boho chic to ravey to cool swimwear to low key casual.

So go out of your comfort zone and have some fun putting together a unique look that expresses your personality perfectly!

We hope you have a blast at your beach festival event in style.
