Springtime is here, which means it is FINALLY festival season! Whether you are lucky enough to venture out West to Coachella, heading down to the Gulf Coast to Hangout Fest, or heading into the depths of Tennessee for Bonnaroo, we have got you covered. Festival fashion is all the rage these days. Flower crowns, crochet tops, maxi skirt, tie dye, you name it! Music festivals have not only become a place for music, but a place for fashion as well. Lotus is your one stop shop for all of your festival needs this season. It is definitely our favorite part about spring! It’s time to soak up some sunshine while enjoying some live music and good food! Here at Lotus Boutique, we have a wide variety of items that can have you festival ready.

Have you seen how awesome fashionis at Coachella? Celebrities are known for strutting their stuff and making a fashion statement while chilling out to some great tunage. Coachella is takes place in the middle of the Colorado Desert. How cool is that? Festival goers tend to rock their best bohemian festival wear. You will see everything from cut-off jean shorts, crocheted crop tops, oversized hats, cool shades, metal jewelry, and awesome kimonos. Coachella is definitely the place for the fashion forward festival goer.

How many of you have been to the Hangout Music Festival? It is located on the beautiful beaches of Gulf Shores, Alabama. This is just a short hour away from two of our Lotus locations. Since Hangout Fest is on the beach, we see lots of festival goers wearing their trendiest swimsuits. Most girls like to accessorize their festival bikini with a bohemian inspired cover-up, a romper, a flowy kimono, or a pair of super cute cut-off jeans shorts. Make sure to rock a pair of cool sunnies and plop that over-sized flower crown on your head. And don’t forget to put on some super rad flash tats. Nothing glitters more in the sun than some fun metallic temporary tattoos. We can’t wait to see these styles grace our local beaches.


Bonnaroo is not for the faint-hearted. It gets HOT in the middle of Tennessee during the spring and summer months. Bonnaroo fashion is all about keeping cool and looking great. Crop tops are your main go-to for this camp-ground festival site. It gets so hot that some even wear their bathing suits. Make sure to wear a good hat to keep that sun from beating down on your face. And of course keep hydrated! We can’t wait to see what kind of styles you where this year!



What to Wear:

Because it is spring, temperatures may be high.  Wearing loose fitting and lightweight fabric to a festival is always a great idea.  We have so many cute dresses that are cute, light, and will fit anyone’s budget.  With a diverse selection of pattern and colors, every Lotus Boutique shopper is guaranteed to find the perfect festival dress. It’s also really fun to dance in your flowy festival dress while your favorite musician is performing.  Tribal prints, tie-dyes, and bright colors have been our top selling festival dresses in previous years.

If you’d prefer not to wear a dress, jean shorts and a loose fitting top are just as cute and comfy! Denim shorts go with anything.  You can pair shorts with a crop top, racer back tank, or graphic tee of your favorite band!!  This short/shirt combo will keep you cool while the temperatures rise in the afternoon and keep you looking festival chic.  If it’s a colder day at the festival, a long kimono will be good to have.

To have the ultimate festival look, stacked bangles and flash tats are a must.  This combination gives you a bohemian look while keeping you cool.  In order to protect your face from the sun, a cute little fedora will do the job while keeping you festival chic.  Of course, a necessity for every festival is a cute and comfy pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes.

When attending a festival, it’s always good to have a spot to sit down at.  Having a festive blanket scarf packed in your festival bag will come in handy.  You can use the blanket scarf to sit down and take a break on after walking around all day.  It’s also a great place to meet up with your friends and know where to find each other.

It’s always nice to bring a backpack filled with water to stay hydrated and sunscreen.  Being in the sun all day at a festival really dehydrates you.  You may be having so much fun but not even realize how thirsty you are or how badly you are sun burned! Most festivals sell these items but it’s always good to bring your own to save money and know for sure that you have it.
