Australia’s ‘Groovin the Moo’ festival kicked off with a bang over the weekend, with tens of thousands of revellers showcasing their trendy fashion choices on social media.

Scantily-clad women wore two-piece outfits of cropped shirts with matching jeans while one brave man chose to wear all white shorts and a shirt covered with women’s lips. 

The festival, which kicked off at Wayville, South Australia on April 27, hit three locations in three days.
