Stay comfortable without compromising that fashion value.

Let’s be real, music festivals are where people dress to impress. But there is a fine line between looking good and trying hard to look good. Here at IGNITE! Music Festival, your only priority (other than safety) should be to have fun! So let’s drop the facade, we’re here to have a good time.

GO BOLD: Get Your Statement On

You can’t go wrong with a statement look. Play around with block colors and get that ripped action on. Hannah here rocks the denim-on-denim fit, not forgetting the 90's sunnies (which is totally making a comeback!). Have fun while you’re at it and get that hair all up funky-styled

GO BOHO: Comfort is Key

Who says you have to compromise fashion for comfort? Mira here rides with that boho-chic approach. Donning on a flowy aztec-patterned dress, she pairs it with a matching rattan floppy hat and round bag. Lace it up with some gladiator sandals and you’re ready for that Coachella look!

I never go out without accesorires! Especially my hoop earrings. You know what they say, "the bigger the hoop, the bigger the heart"

What’s in my bag?
I always keep lip balm, tissues and a pack of tic tacs

How to: Speed up Bag Check
Bring a small bag with just your key essentials! You're probably gonna be jumping around anyway so opting for a fanny pack or a small round rattan bag would be practical and trendy ;)



Layer up that outfit with some textures and patterns. With this, simple outfits can really stand out! Kenji here has on a camo-patterned bag, bomber + faux fur jacket, and even vertical stripes down his pants. These days, people are clashing their patterns and it is worth the chaos! Amazingly too, it fuses well with the plain but bright orange top. It’s all about the layering!



Cop the Style:
Graphic T-Shirt – TOPMAN, Orange MNHTN
Pants – ASOS, Design Tapered Trousers in Burgundy with Side Stripe Tape
Shoes – VANS, SK8-Hi Sneakers
Sunnies – Reclaimed Vintage Round Sunnies

Describe Your Style in 3 Words
Androgynous, Funky & Statement-Making

Staple Item:
Belt – It ties everything together. If you want to switch up, go for an eccentric type!

What’s in my bag?
Bottled water, Lip Balm, Earpiece, Portable Charger Mints & the essentials! (wallet, phone etc)

How to: Speed up Bag Check
Bring a slim wallet that fits in your pocket! Don’t go through the hassle of bringing too much.
