Honestly, I’ve never really been a carnival person. I know people who absolutely love it and travel to different cities to visit festival or never miss Coachella. Can’t be me. I’m not sure why, I love music and any excuse to dress outside of your comfort zone, but there’s something about large crowds and the thought of walking miles from stage to stage that doesn’t appeal to me. You’ll never guess what convinced me to go to my first festival. I had a Hamptons trip was making plans with my friends and we had a running joke about me always drinking Celsius (my energy drink of choice), and that Celsius was sponsoring a festival in the Hamptons the same weekend we were going to.
When the stars align like that, how can one say no? So suddenly my relaxing weekend in the East turned into my first festival attendance and I absolutely needed to focus on what I was going to pack. As a pre-festival timer, I took to Pinterest, instagram and TikTok looking for lots of carnival costume inspiration. While it’s a festival, it’s also a festival in the Hamptons, so of course I had to consider that when packing. When I went to the festival, there were a lot of classical concert trends on display. Everyone takes their festival very seriously. Honestly, I’m impressed, but there are 5 trends that definitely reign supreme.
