Festival Season is Upon Us – Here’s What You Need to Know

Festival Season is HERE

Are you ready?

Its that time of year again – Festival Season

Glitter Bum - is HERE
Glitter Bum – is HERE

Summer music festivals have for a long time been a breeding ground for eccentric fashion trends, which become the nations obsessions.

From the tie-dye fads from Glasto, right through to the present day obsession with wildfox cutoff denims, glitter roots, face jewels and OTT flowery crown and glory headbands! These quirky looks are the youth culture’s stamp on the festival phenomenon. And here’s the latest trend coming your way – taking festival fashion one step further:

glitter for your derrière.

Yep. Glitter butt. It’s a thing, and you can expect to see it all over Instagram in the next few months….. Deal with it.

Cosmo has reported that the trend was inspired by the feeling of sitting on the beach, standing up, and finding your backside covered in sand. But instead of sand, now it’s glitter. YAY – you can never really have enough glitter, right?!

Of course, applying glitter to your own bum is a little tricky, so if you fancy trying the trend it’s probably best to leave it to a professional. Or you can hire one of your friends and get them to rub hair gel (used as glue) on your derriere, and then ask them to paint on the glitter.

A totally normal friendship ritual, I’m sure they’ll agree.

Make sure you wear shorts that are short enough to display your glittery behind to the world – look at our fun ragged priest ones and be warned that you will probably never, ever remove all traces of glitter from the area between your cheeks. LOL 🙂

Enjoy your new life as a glitter-bummed person.

Leave sparkly traces on ever toilet seat you ever grace.

This is who you are now.

Will you be trying out this fad?

Here’s some of our suggestions for festival season from our wonderful brands from skinnydip london , tatty devine and ironfist – you are spoiled for choice wherever the one your attending will be 🙂

Holiday season is in full swing, which means the panic of packing your case, is in full swing!

There are bargains to be had, meaning we can definitely get more for our budget.

Espadrille’s : A pair of espadrilles’ will take you from the pool party to bar with ease, and they’re much more comfortable to wear as well. Wear these stylish shoes, which are also super comfortable.

Sandals : These are holiday essential footwear, easy to wear and easy to take off when going for a dip in the pool or the sea. We have some great stylish options too, which looks great with anything from shorts, to a maxi.

When you’re spending plenty of money on bikinis and swimsuits you want to be able to show them off, making a stylish cover-up the perfect option. We have some fun options from UNIF and Prey of London. Get just enough of your bikini on show, but still be covered up so you can head for lunch and drinks without stares from the staff at the hotel.

Statement sunnies: Mirrored or coloured lenses, huge retro designs, or something classic like an aviator style, basically everything goes when it comes to picking sunglasses, just choose the pair – or three – that you love.

Thanks to Taylor Swift and Kendall Jenner the inflatable has become a must-have for this summer. Whether you’re chilling in your own villa or at the hotel pool it pays to take an inflatable. Catch those rays whilst you enjoy the water lapping around you to cool you down. Cocktail in hand is optional, but much appreciated.

Fashion blogger Amy Valentine rocks our UNIF gear in her latest post

Pink haired fashion blogger, Amy Valentine looks awesome in our UNIF tee and jacket.

In her own words Amy says of her look

All UNIF everything in this get-up apparently! They’re seriously one of my fave brands so I couldn’t resist – I reckon if I had to pick one brand to wear for the rest of my life, it would 100% be UNIF! This was just a casual one for running errands in town, but thought I’d take some pics anyway, especially as it was such a lovely day

Amy has teamed our quirky UNIF life is hard tee which features a sad looking clown graphic and slogan “life is hard” , with some denim shorts and our UNIF army parka jacket. She has customised the jacket with some quirky pins and badges, which shows how versatile this jacket is and how much fun you can have with it making it fit your own look and style.

UNIF is def one of our fav brands too – its famous for its stand-out prints and graphics, which are designed for the gal who likes to stand out and not fit in. The brand from the USA, has something for everyone as it features mega girly prints mixed up with some dark and daring styles.

The Ultimate Guide to Festival Fashion

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 AmbrosioVanessa 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!

Enjoy 🙂
