Last year, we witnessed the rise —or should we say the fall?— of the underbutt during festival season. It was practically a game: take a drink whenever you spot a girl in high-waisted cut-offs with a healthy dose of cheek. But that was a game that no one would win. This year, festival fashion has evolved to embrace playsuits, fringe, dresses, and a surprising number of dudes wearing ironic cat shirts. Based on the number of revelers sporting fringe (in every way imaginable) at this weekend's BottleRock in Napa, we're going to declare it the clear trend winner.
If you're aching to see the outfits you may have missed this weekend, we've got the best of the best above. Take a look, and start planning your ensembles for OutsideLands. After all, it's only 10 weeks away.
