The Burning Man Fashion Mood Board

Elysian’s Ultimate Hippie Chic style Guide

We totally recognize that a mood board with fancy designer clothes is the antithesis of Burning Man’s ethos. The festival staunchly eschews corporate sponsors, and encourages its participants to “resist the urge to substitute consumption for a participatory experience.” But if you are venturing into Black Rock Desert this year to join 75,000 others between August 26 and September 4, who view “radical self expression as a gift offered to others,” then you might as well look cute. And if you’re going to be staying local during Labor Day, there’s no harm in rocking a hippie chic look in your hometown. Bohemian style is bigger than ever this season, and if you get any strange looks from your neighbors, you can tell them that your “radical self-expression arises from your own unique gifts” which you are happy to share.
