Festivals are all about the fun so, to have the best time ever, read our essential tips.
Coachella in LA has already kicked off “festival season” in true style! With a a-list guest list, coachella is the ultimate glamorous festival, which sets the trends which will now dominate festival fields this summer.
From Jamie Chung’s ribbed knit dress to Kendall Jenner’s crocheted number, these were some of the hot looks from the festival. Kendall’s cute minnie ears hairdo and glitter roots are the trend of the moment too!
Why not mix up a dressy Lavish Alice dress with some wellington boots? Or wear a bikini under a crochet UNIF dress? and throw in some glitter roots to get the festival chic style? and of course the essential eyewear – Quay Eyeware is your go to brand!
Newly blonde bombshell, Taylor Swift rocked a casual look for this years festival. A simple, comfortable yet cool look, completed with her trademark red lippy.
One of the most important things about dressing for a festival is comfort – you need to look good, however you need to feel comfortable. Taylor has nailed it here with her look, comfy flats, perfect for lots of walking and dancing! A comfy mini and cool oversized tee – go to wildfox for the essential tee.
Here’s some suggestions to get the Taylor Festival Look
With this being the UK, we arent always guaranteed the sunshine like Coachella. So really you need to go prepared for all seasons in one day.
Here are some suggestions and a few essentials – in particular a RAIN MAC
Denim shorts, maxi dresses, festival crowns and many more are essentials for festivals.
Let Festival Season & Festival Fashion Commence…..
We love this time of year, the sun is starting to make an appearance and we have seen (and drooled) over all the pics from Coachella & all the celebs festival looks! That means one thing, we will soon be in the midst off full blown festival season, when every weekend is filled with some sort of outdoor music event, so there is one thing for sure – your wardrobe will need sorting out.
Now in all seriousness, how to get the festival look? Well when we think of festival fashion, we look to our celebs for some inspiration. Celebs who have stylists, who pick the best trends and styles! So look to our festival style idols Kate Bosworth, Kate Moss, Alessandra Ambrosio, Vanessa Hudgens and Alexa Chung, who look stylish, comfortable and also as if they’re prepared for what is essentially a big wet stag do with lots of music in the background (Ok, fine maybe not Bosworth, Alessandra & Vanessa, who tend to opt for the warmer festival options, ie non British!).
These girls however have shown us that you don’t have to wear hotpants, nor do you have to wear a floral headband!
What you will need is a warm jacket (unless you’re lucky enough to attend a festival outwith the UK, in which case just a good pair of sunglasses will do); a slouchy jumper and a nifty pair of shorts. You need to be able to dance as energetically as Jagger and be fit enough to walk for miles without getting wet feet or being in pain!
Going to a festival is a test of endurance, literally! I remember my 1st festival, T In The Park and having a blast during the day in the rain only to go back to the campsite for the evening and discover a rain flooded tent. You need to have patience and expect all seasons! Your festival ‘wardrobe’ , should therefore be a survival kit, packing light however is the key; ensuring all essentials to make the experience easier. If you think about what you’re wearing once you’re there, then its FACT that you’re not having enough fun. If your shoes or dress cross your mind once when you’re inside those dance tents, then walk to the nearest bar or fun fair immediately – on our command!
So we have taken the heat for you & scoured our online store (we have a fancy online festival fashion shop set up too just for you) to help you find shopping ideas to help you cater to every kind of festival, to make sure that fun is your priority, not what you look like! The perfect denim-cut offs; the suede jacket that will keep you warm when day turns to night; durable, but stylish footwear ideal for dancing; and the dress that will make you feel as carefree as boho 70s chic! Brands like unif, minkpink and the ragged priest are quite simply made for festivals!
