Trends for the Desert

After what feels like a decade, spring festival season is finally upon us. Good food, better performances, late nights and endless photo ops. What we can appreciate most about festivals is that they’re a cross roads between music, art, and fashion - a place to celebrate a hybrid of emerging musicians and fashion trends.

Choosing what to wear to a festival is difficult because your outfit needs to be comfortable, secure, ready for the night, and of course, stylish. You may be there to enjoy the music, but you're also there to stun. 

So, before you hit the road for the desert, we're here to offer you a comprehensive list of the trends we know will be popping off this festival season. These are some of our favorite trending looks from the Pisces Princess and Gilded Angels collections. 


Trend #6 - Fairytale Florals

The fairytale dreamland aesthetic is taking over pop culture. It’s embedded in the music we love. Think Lil Nas X’s album, Montero, or Doja Cat’s latest album, Planet Her. Even Billie Eilish's Happier Than Ever feels like a daydream.

You can’t deny that "fairytale dreamland" is it right now, and it’s taking over fashion too. So, who better to lead this heavenly trend other than us? 

All of our Fairytale print pieces are festival ready. Some bikinis (Like the Tia top) feature chain details for an added early 00s flair. Matching makes styling easy and we're advising you, telling you, our Fairytale print pieces are everything you need to be matching this festival season. Pair these pieces with your favorite gold jewelry for the dreamiest Day 1 desert fit. 


Trend #5 - Rainbow Swirl Prints

If this doesn't give you music festival inspo, we don't know what does. Rainbow swirl is a pre 2000s trend we're LIVING for. Although all of our Rainbow Swirl pieces are festival ready, the Indy top (paired with some jean shorts), the Erma dress, and the Andrea mini skirt are the festival pieces we need to see you in. These pieces are everything flowy and fun. They're such a statement that simple sandals and some silver jewelry is all you'll need to stand out. 


Trend #4 - Pink Diamanté Everything

No, but actually, everything. Rhinestone details and pink tie dye is the hybrid trend you didn't know you needed. We're not saying tie dye is back, but we are making this one exception because our Distorted Pink Dye is the epitome of diving into dreamland. We wish we could narrow down the selections from the Pisces Princess collection, but this colorway is just too good. 

If you're looking for a sexy and fun dressed-down look for Sunday, we suggest the Baby Jersey tee paired with our Bobbi boy short, but if you're ready to bring your all on Day 3, We expect to see you in the Peace top and the Stacey skirt


Trend #3 - Cloud-like Puff Fabric

Baby Pink and Baby Blue puffy cloud bikinis and clothing by Frankies Bikinis

You won't find a fabric as good as this anywhere else and that's probably because we created it. This Baby Blue and Baby Pink cloud-like swim fabric was engineered by Founder and Creative Director, Francesca Aiello, herself. 

All of our pillowy pieces are festival approved and pair best with a matching baby pink or baby blue nail color. This trending fabric is giving sexy, supportive and comfortable so match the vibe with your favorite pair of sneakers and maybe some light blue eyeshadow or liner. 


Trend #2 - Galaxy Mesh

Mesh apparel is the perfect, lightweight compliment to literally any of our swimwear tops or bottoms.

Mesh is a festival trend we love because it's breathable, sleek, and sexy. Our Galaxy mesh apparel tops and bottoms go best with the Blue Jean bikini pieces. If you're looking for a cover up to keep you cool by day, yet hug your skin for warmth by night, our Galaxy apparel is the way to go. 


Trend #1 - Blue Jean Baby

Blue Jean denim bikinis and clothing by Frankies Bikinis

Coming in at #1 is the early 00s trend we can't get enough of. Blue Jean is it, again. All of our Blue Jean apparel is made from a lightweight, chiffon fabric ideal for those hot desert days. Our Blue Jean swim fabric is even better than denim because it's lighter, stretcher and sexier. These Blue Jean fits we shot in the British Virgin Islands can all be found here
