The hippie, boho-chic vibe was still going strong at this year's first weekend of ACL, but we're happy to report that the flower crown trend decreased dramatically since 2013. Popular boho-friendly brands like Free People and Urban Outfitters were amongst the most seen.

Our best advice for this weekend would be to keep your look simple, comfortable — and heat resistant. Keep your look stylish by adding in splashes of color and bold accessories. And, as always, make sure you stay away from culturally inappropriate headwear.

Katie Kibiak's matte black Nasty Gal frames added a simple edginess to her look.

Alice Geaccone stood out in this metallic ensemble.

Boots are the most versatile festival footwear you can sport, and we loved Keely Moore's patterned boots from local brand Teysha.

Keeping cool and protected from the harsh sunlight at the fest can be as easy as wearing a wide brimmed hat like this one we found on Johanne Sterling, which she purchased at the festival.

Metallic tattoos were everywhere at the fest this year. Teddi Bloom kept up with the trend by accentuating her backless ensemble with a metallic feather tattoo.

Christa Phillips supports local vintage with a floral maxi robe from Charm School Vintage tied around her waist.

Keep your feet fashionable and comfortable with colorful or patterned footwear like these Jeffrey Campbell lace-up flats.

We adored how Brandi Russel's high-low Free People top mimicked her long locks.

Vangie Carranza kept her entire look colorful from her lilac hair down to the patterned pants she thrifted from Goodwill.

Megan Holt keeps things simple and cute in purple floral Bebe romper.

Sophia Vockrogh knows the importance of traveling light with her small handmade purse by My Mochila.

Accessorizing simple looks with dainty chains was also trending at the festival. Vidhya Ramachandra did just that with her head chain bought at Claire's.

Edith Salinas goes for the classic festival look of a crop top and cut-offs, both from Garage.

Elva Salinas brings back the 90s flannel look with this shirt dress from Forever 21.

A-plus to this bright pink crop top and mirrored round shades worn by Rachel Flatt.

Jennifer Mitchem keeps things edgy and comfortably stylish with her short flowy Nasty Gal dress.

Sue Chen adds a small amount of flair to her look with a pair of black and white striped shorts.

Catherine Abston embraces the fringe trend in this look.

Layering can be difficult in the Texas heat, but Trinity Huus pulled it off with this light floral robe from Urban Outfitters.

Carry around your sunscreen, snacks and whatever else you need in style. Alexandra Cole's backpack she found on a trip to Mexico combined fashion and function.

We loved Andy M.'s edgy look combining a sheer top with bleach splattered shorts from Target.

Stephanie Jones accessorized her otherwise simple outfit with a statement necklace from Urban Outfitters.

Looking perfectly boho festival chic, Katie Canales rocked this midi length Free People dress.

Backless dresses were big this year.

Katie Kibiak's monochrome look was on point.

If you're going to avoid any one trend this year when dressing for the fest, it's this one. Just say no to adding a Native American headdress to your festival wear.
