12 Overall Dresses You Need for Festival Season
Sure, we know that festival style gets a bad rep sometimes — but hear us out. There’s something to be said about a tomboy-inspired dungaree dress that has Bonnaroo written all over it. Ahead, we’re bringing you 12 Pinterest-approved pinafore and overall dresses that you need to invest in ahead of festival season. Proceed to toss ‘em over mock-neck crop tops, v-neck tees, and colorful crochet bralets for no shortage of street cred.
Among A Cutting Overall DressIs it an apron? Is it a denim dress? No, it’s definitely the latter. (And let it be known: There’s nothing dowdy or matronly about it.) The snap-front closure and trend-right frayed hem would even receive an invisible high-five from the trendsetting crowd. Just add a neon vinyl fanny pack and lazy girl-approved mules FTW.
Topshop Moto White Denim Pinafore DressNothing says upcoming summer concert series like a ‘90s-inspired pini dress that goes with anything and everything. (AKA: Get ready to be a repeat outfit offender.) Dial it down with an Adidas track jacket, a baseball cap, and Stan Smiths for a festival-going getup that will have you kickin’ it cool in no time.
Free People The Patchwork Jumper DressIf you can dig it, team this wardrobe workhorse with a ringer tee, old-school Vans, and cactus earrings for a “trying, but not trying too hard” vibe.
Zara Faux Leather Pinafore Dress With ZipTake a stand with this bottle green leather style that will serve as a foundation to all your feminist loving apparel. You already know embroidered ankle booties and oversized hoops are in order.
Mango Metallic Appliqués Pinafore DressFrom the boardroom to Bonnaroo — how’s that for a fashion tagline? Ditch the stuffy button-down for a billowy bell sleeve blouse and platform sneakers that mean business. Off-the-clock style has never looked so good.
Free People Back to the PinaforeBoho babes, proceed to swipe right for this effortless pinafore dress (how darling is that embroidered print?). The lightweight, gauzy material and flouncy hem practically call for a flower crown and Birks. Layer it over a t-shirt or keep things on the DL with a utility jacket and lace-up espadrilles.
Tortoise Pinafore DressGet ready to slay hard (who moi? Yes, YOU.) with this paint-splattered pinafore dress that requires a distressed t-shirt, an off-duty army green parka, and combat boots.
Topshop Velvet Pinafore DressYou had us at crushed velvet pinafore dress that gives off a certain je ne sais quoi quality that all the French girls swear by. (We’re also partial to the scene-stealing lilac hue.) Besides a striped crop top and Ray-Bans, classic white tennies will have you channeling a festival-going look that doesn’t require an old tattered tee and mom shorts.
YSTR Anais DressAllow this botanical overall dress — with kangaroo pockets, no less! — to serve as your cue to ditch the winter layers and embrace an island girl state of mind. Woven huaraches and a chic ascot scarf will have you soaking up all the rays down in the Colorado Desert.
K/Lab Pinafore DressAnd you thought all denim pinafore dresses were grunge-chic at best. WRONG. This ladylike iteration calls for a Liberty print blouse and rainy-day Chelsea boots (with socks peeking out just a smidge). For festival flair, rely on mirrored sunnies and a Fjällräven backpack to carry your look home.
Boohoo Pandi Badge Pinafore DressBecause badges are fun… okay? Team this red pinafore dress featuring an exposed zipper alongside a white tee and Chuck Taylors for an #OOTD that’s ready to rage on. The DGAF ‘tude will almost certainly follow. Just no bad vibes — capiche?
BDG Bambi Skirtall OverallThis just in: We’ve uncovered the quintessential black skirtall for mixing and matching with all your festival-going looks. You could wear it to the fairgrounds with a sporty logo-strewn sports bra or tap into your Scandinavian sensibilities with a lightweight striped turtleneck. Either way, Dr. Martens won’t be up for debate.
