Festival fashion isn’t just a thing for the ladies anymore. Men’s fashion at shows is now just as important. With such a wide variety of talent playing at Austin City Limits this year, you can’t really go wrong with many different style expressions. A quirky and bright button- down, tee, or tank is a great way to stand out in a simple way. This look is a perfect way to show style without looking like you take yourself way too seriously.
Although it is officially now fall, the heat has not escaped Texas. An edgy pair of shorts in an acid-wash is good way to keep cool or go wild with a pair of bright board shorts. If you’re feeling more like wearing the pants, don’t feel the need to stick with basic jeans but go for a colored or printed pair.

All day spent going from show to show means all day spent walking around. ACL is a valid excuse to add a new pair of kicks to your wardrobe. Just make sure they are comfortable enough that you won’t mind living in them for the weekend.
When it comes to accessories, think of them more as essentials. Do not forget a hat and a good pair of sunglasses to keep from having to squint though the hot sun up at the stages and give your phone a break by checking your watch so you can save that precious battery life for snapchat and trying to find your squad at the end of the night. A backpack will also be your best friend when you find yourself lugging around water, your wallet, snacks, souvenirs, and the other random objects you seem to have accumulated throughout the day one way or another.
