Foodies, concert-goers, and art lovers alike can find a weekend or two that inspires their passions or lets them try something new. But not all festivals have the same dress code. Sometimes you need a stand-out look that plays up your individual style, and other times a machine-washable T-shirt is your best friend (in case of an unfortunate encounter with a funnel cake).
