Festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza, Governor’s Ball and Bonaroo are back this summer, and we’re pretty jazzed about it over here at Ragstock HQ. It’s been so fun to get hype over lineups and dream about dancing to Doja Cat at Lolla. One of the best parts about a music festival (besides, well, the music) are the creative and interesting LOOKS that everyone wears. It’s like a mixture of Halloween and a fashion show and the first day of school all wrapped up into one. It’s also one of the best ways to get a little adventurous and explore the limits of your personal style!
Exploring the style guides for this year, I’ve noticed there’s SO much content for women’s festival-wear, and definitely not as much that stands out for men! Men attend festivals too! I really wanted to take this chance to show off some unique men’s styling options that utilize our vintage.
If you’re lucky enough to have snagged tickets to your favorite festival, and you’re feeling a little intimidated about what to wear? Never fear! We’re here to show you the best ways to style one of the most basic and well-worn items of festival wear: vintage jerseys.
Vintage Jersey; plain and simple
One of the coolest ways to style a jersey is also the easiest! On its own, the jersey is the statement piece that you can then build other elements of your outfit around. We added a trendy belt bag and some ski sunglasses for some added style points. We also topped it off with some vintage denim shorts to keep things a little spicy. Pro-tip: if you’re jersey searching and want to style it this way, pick a team with colors that pop! You’ll stand out from the crowd and be a conversation starter!
Layer, Layer, Layer
To elevate the jersey look a bit, we decided to pair it with a plain white undershirt. The straight leg vintage denim jeans we chose for the pants also adds to the moody and stylish mindset. We’re definitely getting some y2k throwback vibes from it, and we’re not mad about it. If you really want to complete the cool boy band-eqsue look, throw on a chain and a bucket hat. Boom, just like that, you’re Justin Timberlake.
Get wild with this one! Pick a jersey that features some bright, summery colors, and then find a fun Hawaiian shirt that coordinates with one of the colors! We have so many funky Hawaiian shirts to choose from, there should be no problem making something work.
So, now you’re less intimidated? Right? You should be! It’s so easy to work a vintage jersey into your wardrobe and even easier to make your festival vibe!
