Rocking the Daisies, the music festival that brings out stylish festivalgoers partying to the hottest local and international acts. RTD is a chance for people to show off their unique take on upcoming trends. Festival-wear has moved in a new direction. Steezy street-style dominated this years event, leaving behind the florals, flowy fabrics and typical festival attire.
We scouted some of our favourite outfits, paired perfectly with a pair of Converse. Converse has always been a favourite at Rocking the Daisies as some choose a classic, versatile pair, while others choose a pair that stands out as the star of the look.
Futuristic fashion was hugely popular this year, as seen on international scales. These looks included reflective fabrics, puffed track pants and sports-inspired shades. Touches such as lumo accents, canvas texture and threaded straps accentuated the narrative of futuristic fashion.

Edgy military inspired looks was another popular choice. Festival-goers were seen in cargo, camouflage, and chunky layers with industrial details like multiple pockets and heavy zips to emphasize the utilitarian essence of their look.

Quirky streetwear included bucket hats, moonbags, cycling shorts and colourful combinations. This was definitely one of the most popular and versatile styles. One could see multiple interpretations of the look. Some chose muted looks, creating a sophisticated edge. Others chose bright contrasting colours or clashing trends.
