The Urban Outfitters Men’s Festival Collection Is A Maximalist’s Dream

Colour outside the lines this festival season with powerful printed menswear that’s designed to stand out from the crowd. Here’s our pick of the mix. 

Festival wear has seriously accelerated this season. Where once upon a time a pair of denim shorts and a flower crown used to cut it, now it’s about putting your pedal to the floor in super-charged clothing and accessories that could knock your socks off. 

Those used to digging out a band tee and calling it quits would hardly recognise the festival fashion landscape, these days. We put it all down to the rise of musical events like Burning Man whose attendees relish in competing to create the craziest, out-of-this-world costumes - and naturally, we all want in on a bit of the fun.  

So how does your average Joe go about wearing this season’s hi-octane all-weather festival gear? According to Urban Outfitters, it’s all in the mix. Rip up the rulebook, forget the trends and ignore everything anyone’s ever told you about what goes with what: this is the time to throw caution to the wind with forward-thinking looks that don’t give a damn what anyone else thinks. 

We’ve picked out our favourite festi pieces from the Urban Outfitters summer collection, guaranteed to bring some joy to your weekend. Think big, bold and bright slabs of fluro shades clashed with jarring prints, layers of logos and sportswear for a fire look when pitching your tent, washing it down with tie dye prints that bring some California surf to the British suburbs.

Graphic Takeover

Artsy doodles, enlarged graphics and shouty slogans are putting from free spirit into streetwear staples. 

Tie Dye For

The standout trend for the season, we’ll be wearing this off the field too with day-to-day denim.  

Pattern Clash

Let one single piece of clothing do all the hard work for you with juxtaposing prints that require zero effort on the styling front. 

Layer By Later

When it comes to your look, more is definitely more. Do it yourself, stacking your shades and pairing your prints with hopeless abandon. They look great together, but will work well separately once you've had your fun.
