Ah, summer music festivals. So fun, so hot, so long, so sweaty. Here's a fashion survival guide.

For the ladies, a good, roomy yet chic sundress is essential. Sundresses lend themselves to all sorts of styles—vintagey, hippie, girly, sophisticated. If you're going to be out in the sun all day, a good sunblock or some sort of shade is essential—like a parasol or a big ol' floppy hat.

Metal jewelry gets so hot in the sun, and you're risking a rash. How about a bold necklace made of fabric or wood instead?

You'll be walking around a lot, so comfortable shoes are essential. Resist the urge to wear flip-flops, which provide zero support, and choose sandals with a little more thought for all-day comfort.

You need to carry your stuff, but a giant bag is a drag. Downsize to a shoulder bag, which you can wear diagonally to keep from banging into people in crowds.
