Festival Fashion: We’re Going Down, We’re Yelling Timber!

Festival fashion: We’re going down, we’re yelling timber!

Festival season is here but there’s no reason to forgo style just because you’ll be knee deep in mud and unwashed groupies. Whether you’re heading to Glastonbury or are simply coveting the laidback hippie chic of Coachella, we’ve got your festival wardrobe covered. 

The standard Coachella uniform is a graphic tee and high waisted shorts, be original with this Scotch and Soda stripe print shirt paired with these Topshop digital print shorts. Please stay away from denim shorts  – they are OVER and tailored shorts are much more flattering on your legs. Accessorize this cute look with sunnies from Finest Seven and a flower crown, the obligatory Coachella headpiece. As this is quite a bright outfit stick to smaller, halo style flowers crown instead of one that makes you look like you have a bouquet growing out of your skull. Keep jewellery to minimal, sticking to stackable rings, this set from Accessorize is perfect for mixing up your jewellery game! A neutral bag like this suede backpack from Asos and these Lapaire sandals keep the attention on your seriously summery look.

  What to wear to a music festival

Complement a grungy, nonchalant look with a floaty white sundress from Samantha Sotos. Standout accessories like this fringe jacket and boots from Cobra Society pump up the edginess of this outfit. Not a hat person? Try this amazing feather ear cuff from Nasty Gal. Add a badass statement necklace and smuggle your Urban Outfitters hip flask in a cross body bag from Topshop. This is a great look if you aren’t into florals or clashing prints but still want to achieve a killer look this festival season.

Make sure to be SEEN with these major clashing prints. We like the crop top and maxi skirt combo but add some Aztec and boho patterns to the mix? We ADORE it! This Aztec crop top paired with this flowing boho maxi skirt shouldn’t work but it so does and the street style photographers will be flocking to you as if you were Anna Della Russo. Feeling less extreme? Try this sweet floral maxi skirt with a denim crop top, add a floral tote bag to embrace a little bit of the clashing trend. This look is also great if you don’t want to catch the sun, just throw on a neutral hat to keep you protected from the summer rays.

 festival essentials

So, once your outfits are sorted, what else do you pack? Only the essentials, and of course, we’ve got the chicest essentials around. Who needs a tent when you have, wait for it… a floral wigwam! Be the envy on the camping site with this Cath Kidston style shelter. Add this Quba & Co deckchair to live in a field of comfort (get it?!) Wellies are of course a festival essential and we love this pair from Seasalt, with the pink laces adding a cutsey touch. Keep fresh with hand sanitizer, make up wipes and a Tangle Teezer to avoid looking like a hot festival mess. Make sure, even if there are clouds, to apply sun protection. We love sun lotions that only need to be applied once a day, apply P20 so you can get on with your summertime fun! And don’t forget to pack perfume; there is no excuse for smelling anything less than beautiful. This City Blossom DKNY Be Delicious is the seamless blend of fresh and pretty, perfect for turning heads.
