Even if you aren't headed to the desert for Coachella, a single music festival does not a festival season make. This spring and summer are overflowing with art and music festivals, and we've got your packing list covered with the nine biggest festival fashion trends of 2023. We tapped brand founders and scoured the internet for insights to curate our list of what the who's who of festival-goers will be wearing. Plus, we found out what shoppers are searching for in order to really hone in on the top trends of the season. You'll see some familiar festival favorites down below, including western wear, itty-bitty skirt sets, and rhinestones galore, along with some of spring's biggest trends reimagined and set to a festival scale, including crochet and retro glam. 11 Unexpected Coachella Outfits That Will Stand Out From the Crowd Western Barbiecore Getty Images Google Trends has spoken and "pink cowgirl outfit" is the most-searched Coachella outfit of the year. Coastal cowgirl, this trend is not. Instead, it's all about super-saturated pink, embellishments, and the kind of flashy cowboy boots you can dance your butt off and run between stages in. To put together a pink cowgirl festival outfit of your own, lean into the extra of it all and be sure to have at least one statement piece.Shop Similar: Acne Studios Cotton Canvas Vest, $440, and Planet Cowboy Pinky Tuscadero Boots, $238 (Originally $475). Crochet Sets Getty Images One of the top 10 trending festival looks, according to Google Trends, is a crochet set — and we're not surprised. After all, crochet has been huge this spring and will only continue to trend into summer. That said, we are delighted simply because crochet is so versatile. You can go sultry with a midi set in a wide knit, or take a sportier approach with a shorts and crop set in a closer knit.Shop Similar: Princess Polly Leah Knit Set, $57 Mesh Dresses Getty Images Another most lusted-after festival look, per Google Trends, is the mesh dress. You can go for a beachy open knit or opt for something a bit more sparkling like a rhinestone-studded micro-mail.Shop Similar: Santa Brands x REVOLVE Sydney Mini Dress, $466 (Originally $575) '70s Glam Getty Images While we've all been watching Y2K fashion return with a vengeance, another decade has slowly been gaining mainstream momentum: the '70s. Celebrities were spotted at the first weekend of Coachella in flower child wide-leg pants, embellished belts, and crochet cut-out tops. Pick a single style or go all out by embracing three or four at once.Shop Similar: Warp + Weft NCE Wide-Leg Jeans in Two-Faced, $98, and Streets Ahead Calista Belt, $415.

Ultra-Low-Rise Jeans Getty Images While many Millennials still wake up sweating from nightmares of low-rise jeans, the super low-rise jeans of this year's festival season have a few styling saving graces. They're baggier than low-rise jeans of the past, which means they're actually comfortable to wear (we know, we were shocked too).
