Festival and Dancewear Fabric Trends for S/S 2022
Coachella is coming in hot after a two-year hiatus. Thousands of festival and dancewear looks will be trending this year. After a successful weekend one and two, the Indio desert festival bursts with mesh, fringe, cow prints, and more. Elle quoted, “The excitement and pent-up creativity waiting to explode is tangible, says Lorna Hall, Director of Fashion Intelligence at WGSN.” Lorna also mentions that many styles emphasize personalization and DIY, creating new looks from old pieces.
Many of the outfits showed inspiration from the HBO series, Euphoria. Popular online Australian clothing store Beginning Boutique labels its festival outfit section “Euphoria Effect.” Nevertheless, the looks seen are designed with printed stretch fabrics, mesh, and sparkly foils to create stylish pieces.
Look below at some festival and dancewear fabric trends we see taking over this season!
Bring on the cowboy boots and hat! Westernwear was a top trend that was popular at Coachella weekend. We saw a handful of posts with the cowgirl look but a new spin on it. Many styles seen were bedazzled or shared a bright color palette. Taking a classic look and changing the color palette brings a fresh perspective.

All white is a timeless ensemble that can’t ever go wrong. Aim for a casual and comfortable look that will shine at any event. Style with different textures or accessories to stand out, but keeping it simple will be the perfect look for the summertime.
Popular styles that shine during the day and light up at night caught the photographer’s attention this season. PCF has hundreds of foils to choose from, and wearing a shiny holographic fabric is a show stopper for any event. The sparkly foil reflects off the lights of the performers, causing the garment to change colors!
Pleather / Mesh
Are you looking to show a little more skin? Coachella or any festival is the perfect event to wear less, mix textures, and have fun! Adding pleather and mesh will make any look stand out.
We are playing on the athleisure look, and mini stretch skorts are making a comeback! This style can be dressed up or kept casual, making it perfect for long days in the sun and comfortable to be worn all day long. Select from our high-quality activewear fabrics to start your skort design!
