The Only Items You Need In Your Bag This Festival Season

Share

It’s inevitable—no matter how much you plan ahead for a day in the desert, you always end up forgetting something. So, to make sure that you are fully prepared, we’re sharing the ultimate packing list for your next music festival. Whether you’re a Coachella veteran or the girl who likes to have everything “just in case,” these are the items you need in your bag. And speaking of bags, shop the five we’re obsessing over this season.

The Boho Girl

You're the girl who likes to look as good as you feel on the inside, and what makes you feel better than natural beauty?

What to pack: Tote everything from a rose face mist to all-over argan oil and even immunity-boosting vitamins. Don't forget to protect yourself with organic sunscreen and a cute pair of sunnies. Lastly, pack a crochet one-piece, because you never know when you'll be inclined to take a dip.

The bag: What goes better with your flowy dresses and and ruffled tops than a wicker lucite and a colorful tassel take your look from played out to modern.

The Edgy Girl

You're always making a statement, and it's consistent from your backpack all the way down to your travel-size perfume.

What to pack: You're the type to make plans on a whim, so make sure you have everything you need, no matter where the day takes you. Pack double-duty items like an SPF 50 cushion compact and a vitamin-infused face mist. Hair ties, dry shampoo, highlighter and perfume will keep your look fresh between sets and well into the night. Finally, pack a water bottle to stay hydrated.

The bag: If you want to dance and be hands-free, patches for the ultimate cool-girl look.

The Festival Girl

What to pack: Nobody can brave the elements better than you, but a survival kit loaded with dry conditioner, deodorant, sunscreen, eye drops, lip balm and a hydrating serum definitely help. Document your days in the desert with a vintage camera, and don't forget extra film. When the sun goes down, break out your bright eye pigment and revive your phone with a portable charger.

The bag: Nothing is more ideal for festival season than a playful circle carryall rendered in a bright, sunny hue, which complements ensembles varying from printed dresses to denim.

Lastly, a pair of flats and a blanket are the perfect items for a midday break between sets.
