With just about half a month left until Labor Day, our minds are already beginning to shift gears as stores tease their fall collections and Starbucks tempts of pumpkin spice lattes. But the thing is, summer isn't over yet, and the last thing you want to do is write off what's left of it. Luckily we're here with a few last hurrahs — music festivals all over the globe are still going strong, and that means that #festivalfashion is too. Here's a few simplified looks chosen by VIVA's Editor herself, tried and tested to easily pack into a carry-on.
Mysteryland, The Netherlands
From August 26 to 27, Vijfhuizen in the Netherlands becomes the scene of the legendary Mysteryland music festival. With world-class DJs like Armin Van Buuren, Alesso, and Deadmau5, its actually sparked inspiration for other fests like Belgium's Tomorrowland. So when it comes to what to wear, effortless style is your best bet. The Dutch don't overdo things — rather, they tend to keep it classy and simplified, a lot like this look. Pair Tobi's Chloe shorts with the Sophia bodysuit and you'll be keeping cool, comfortable, and ready to dance all weekend long.

Electric Zoo, New York
Once September hits, the air may start to feel cooler, but New York is really just heating up. Electric Zoo is one of the biggest electronic music festivals of the year, and it's all set on its very own island in between Manhattan, the Bronx and Queens. Randall's Island (or what will be known as EDM island from September 1 to 3) will come alive with acts like Galantis, ZEDD, and DJ Snake, and you'll be dancing the night away in Tobi's Be My Beauty romper. The perfect look to achieve that all-American style, it's best styled with some glitter and glow sticks to blend in with the rest of the EDM crowd.
Rock in Rio, Brazil
Come late October, it's definitely time to jet off to somewhere a little warmer, and Rio, Brazil is the perfect place. Rock in Rio is such a huge party that it's now extended across the continents, showcasing world-class rock and roll acts and more. As the Everfest website puts it, Rock in Rio is "a living, breathing, heart-racing Who's Who in rock history, with headlining stars at last year's festival including Beyoncé, Muse, Justin Timberlake, Metallica, Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, and Iron Maiden." Get some of Rio's Latin inspiration in your look with Tobi's Deanna crop top paired with the perfect denim cutoffs, and top it off with a pair of simple silver hoops.
