Treasure Island Music Festival promises to be especially good this year, with a lineup that includes The Nationals, FKA Twigs, Shamir and many other of-the-moment names. A welcome bonus? There are still plenty of tickets left. Another bonus? It’s happening in October, a month San Franciscans like to call ‘the sunniest of the year’. All signs pointing to one thing and one thing only – this is the festival to dress up for. To help with that, here are a few excellent destinations for your festival getup.

Wallflower Vintage1176 Valencia Street

It’s not a proper festival unless someone’s wearing a vintage wedding gown. The magical Mission shop opened last year, and gained cult status immediately thanks to clever collaborations and a pretty Instagram account. The owners know tasteful, rare vintage which will make you look more like Kate Bosworth and less like someone’s grandma.



Goorin Bros. Hat Shop1612 Stockton Street

Hats are the number one festival accessory, and for a good reason – they’ll protect you from the sun, throw (flattering) shade on your face, and fix that gone-with-the-wind hair. The Goorin Bros. North Beach flagship stores has more hats that you can possibly wear within a year – but one killer piece is enough.


The Haight Goodwill1700 Haight Street

Any Goodwill will be a good bet for cheap, fun, eccentric attire, but the one on Haight street is a promised hit, if your festival attire is on the eclectic side – more crazy prints, impressive gowns, colorful ponchos and weird hats can be found at this location than anywhere else.



Painted Bird1360 Valencia Street

This vintage store is full of surprises, and has a treasure chest reputation – whatever your festival imagination can cook up, from silver harem pants to ethnic jewelry, can be found here. There’s a sister store in Los Angeles, so expect some classic Southern Californian vintage finds, too.


The Wasteland1660 Haight street

Another excellent Haight spot for oddball costumes, vintage attire and headpieces, slightly pricier and polished than other neighborhood destinations. The leather goods are especially inetersting – think denim cutoffs with a cool jacket, the perfect festival combo.



Seed Store212 Clement Street

The humble Inner Richmond spot captures festival style with great accuracy – Aztec prints and babydoll dresses for the ladies, cool button-ups and rough denim for the guys. The well-curated labels, such as Alice&Jig and Pendelton, save the styles from looking cheap and banal.
