Festival Season is HERE
Are you ready?
Its that time of year again – Festival Season
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?
BLOW Hair Salons’ Roisin has guest blogged for US!
We were approached by our now favourite hair salon, BLOW to supply clothes for a photo shoot they were doing for their new Party Hair brand & we immediately jumped at the chance!
If you havent heard of BLOW – then you need to look it up … like NOW! Its the most awesome hair salon in Glasgow which basically invented GLITTER ROOTS – remember them? BLOW is not just a hair salon – its a lifestyle! You go in and get served milkshakes, popcorn and sweeties & you can get your hair coloured literally any colour under the sun! It has a HUGE floral peace sign on the wall too! Basically looks like our dreams!
And when BLOWs’ Roisin offered to guest blog for us – again we jumped at the opportunity.
Roisin AKA “Fashion Mermaid” its over to you…..
When Spoiled Brat recently let us raid their candy shop of a clothing warehouse to style our upcoming hair product brand Party Hair (@partyhairuk) we were uncontainable with excitement! The look we wanted was to draw inspiration from playful and quirky Japanese street style with nods to purikura sticker booths and a sugary sweet colour palette to complement our branding.
Spoiled Brat allowed me do a guest blog to rave about our favourite pieces and stylist picks used so you too shop the cutest looks from the site SS17.
First up is this naughty yet oh so nice Local Heroes number. A young brand who have went from small indie label to cult clothing status in two years with a brand philosophy that focuses on having lots of fun in life and making dreams come true (one we can get behind!). With pastels finally back in for SS17 this cheeky little number is one to grab from the Spoiled Brat website before it’s gone for good. Style it up over beach wear or rock the look as a statement piece with jeans and converse.
The Iron Fist My Little Pony shirt is one of the staple pieces in my own wardrobe and it has defiantly been a talking point ever since. Being born in the 1980s I was a massive fan of the series I had everything from a lunch box to the figurines. The fabric is also beautiful and for lazy gals like me easy to care for! This oversized shirt goes perfect under dungarees and with jeans. For a cute festival look team with cute boots and shorts for look that is going to rack up the compliments. Spoiled Brat also have an amazing beach bag of this if you can’t get enough of MLP!
Rounding up another cute pony themed look is the cat suit from Alice Vandy. Alice Vandy’s collection merges together super cute nostalgia and streetwear. We styled our model with space buns whilst rocking this playsuit for an adorable festival look that was out of this world. Spoiled Brat also stock the dress version of this if you feel like showing off your pins! Yeahaa!
Next up a sure hit for the summer was this beautiful white mesh dress from Local Heroes. The super light material is perfect for layering up over a bikini for lazy days eating ice cream by the pool or getting rolled up for a beach bag. The emoji like patches on this one are ridiculously cute especially the peach and the self-love mantra’s!
Big love to the S.B team for sorting out with clothes for the shoot and you can view the shoot and soon by following us at @partyhairuk!
No matter wherever you’re headed in the summer Spoiled Brat have your back for the cutest hand-picked essentials around!
The Style Rawr features Iron Fist My Little Pony
Iron Fist My Little Pony, gets the Style Rawr treatment
Can we take a moment to appreciate this : Iron Fist, My Little Pony!!! Argh!!!! And how cute does Jade from The Style Rawr look in this pretty little blouse?!
Jade has been busy getting married, but found the time to style up our Iron Fist blouse in her latest blog post. She has gone for the casual look with this – wearing some skinny jeans and her trust DMs. You could also dress this up tucked into a high waisted skirt perhaps and some heels?
Jade has said about this blouse :
“I’ve always liked a bit of Iron Fist, it’s a fun brand and some of the designs they come out with are just inspired, with this blouse definitely planting it’s hooves in that category! The colours are just amazing, so bright and cheery, and the pattern is of course, delightful. If you’re a die hard Brony like me (I have a collection of Rainbow Dash dolls and watch Friendship Is Magic whenever I can), you have to have this. Everypony (yes I wore it to work!) who sees it can’t help but get excited by the colours and the memories it brings on! The material is a slinky chiffon, but not too see through as you can see here because I only have a nude bra on underneath and it’s invisible. You can’t fault Iron Fist quality, it continues to be strong and worth every penny. I kept it simple here and paired it with double denim and pastel DM’s, but it would look pretty darn cute tucked into a little A-Line skirt and some ankle boots if you prefer a girlier look. If you’re looking for sizing info, I’m a UK12 and this is a size L. I probably could’ve swung the M but I’m a terror for sizing up and this is comfortable for me. If this is your sort of thing you should definitely check out the new look Spoiled Brat. The revamped webby is easy to navigate and the updated brand lines are insanely covetable, taking me back to the days of having a huge want list in my faves bar! ”
We totally agree, IronFist are killing it with their collections and collaborations with 80s iconic brands like My Little Pony and Care Bears! With the new season collection due to drop VERY soon – we advise to brace yourself for more nostagic prints and quirky designs.
Thanks to Jade for a wonderful post xxx

The Cropped Top : This Years Essential Wardrobe Item
Have you worked out how to wear a crop top yet?
Have you plucked up the courage to wear a cropped top yet?
The cropped style has been around for quite a few seasons past now, but there are still some who understandably feel nervous about wearing one & rightly so we say, after all we dont all have perfectly toned tummies. But fear not, believe us when we say that just because the top is short, it doesn’t have to mean you need a six pack as an essential pre-requisite for styling out this now-staple wardrobe addition. Have you not heard of LAYERING? Well the cropped top is perfect to dabble in this trend – layer over maxi dresses, vest tops, sweaters – ANYTHING!
The crop top may still look to you like an item from the 90s Spice Girls era, but believe us, when we say that much like leggings, it will become your go to wardrobe item. It’s all about finding your comfort, and your perfect look with the crop top in order to fully grasp the flexibility and style credentials of wearing a crop top which you have unlimited possibilities with – from layering under a pair of native rose dungarees with your favourite liquor n poker bomber thrown over the top, or team with an funky minkpink maxi skirt and heels for an evening look. To prove our point, we’ve styled one key crop top SEVEN ways for 7 completely different events. We actually could have gone on with more and more looks – but didnt want to bore you!
How to wear a crop top? Your about to be enlightened 🙂 scroll down to see the fabulous looks we have pulled together and see how easy it actually is.

Iron Fist is this weeks’ “Brand of The Week”
This weeks’ “brand of the week” has been given to Iron Fist, which is back at Spoiled Brat with a colourful, 80s inspired, care bear BANG!
Iron Fist has quite simply blown us away with the new collection, which is both edgy and girly rolled into one. The brand, all the way from La La Land. In their own words they describe their brand as being :
“for the adventurers, the rebels, the heart-breakers, the party girls and guys who DGAF. We are never the wallflowers – always center stage and living life without the brakes. We wear our hearts and guts on our sleeves, partying till the lights come on, and then partying some more.”
The brand was founded in 2001 and has become a worldwide recognised brand creating ranges for men and women. Their designs are instantly recognisable for their love of tattoo style prints, with attitude which stands out.
What is really unique about IronFist clothing, is their refusal to be labeled as a skate, punk, hip hop or tattoo genre, and due to this, the brand has grown to what it is now, purely because of this diversity and innovative approach to each season. The beauty of Iron Fist fashion is its appeal to everyone, there really is something in each collection for everyone – whether your a girly girl, a rock chick or a grunge chick – then there is something there for you!
Iron Fist came about from the collaboration of two friends, Mike van Senus and Travis Anderson, with a long history in street culture sports, art and music, they set out with the desire to create an original and rebellious clothing line, which suited their needs and wasn’t available elsewhere.
Now Iron Fist are teaming up with massive names like Care Bears and My Little Pony to bring you even more choice in Alternative Fashion. Its quirky, its cool and its also easy on the pocket. Whats not to love?
Take a look at our new Iron Fist range online & we’ll even throw in an exclusive Iron Fist Discount Code just for you – enter code IRON20 for 20% discount off all our Iron Fist Collection (which also includes our Iron Fist Sale range)
