From Outlook all the way in Croatia, to Wireless in my hometown LONDON, I thought I’d kick start the festival trend with some of my favourite looks of this season. I know the weather has been like living in a rainforest lately … but hit or miss… it’s nothing a pair of wellies or sunglasses can’t fix.
Bikinis, shorts, short shorts, even shorter short shorts (awkward for the lisps readers), snapbacks, trainers, crops, tees, raincoats, sun, rain, and flip flops (if you want to walk around barefoot because your shoes are playing stuck in the mud!) I decided to give you a hand with the sort of things you should PARTY and BULL in, this festival season.
F the system i’m starting with Menswear… saving the best for last (who run the world …cough cough girls?)
For summer festivals, shorts are a MUST. Don’t be the douchebag that turns up in a pair of skinny jeans! Shorts can be seamlessly paired with t-shirts and vests to give an outstanding look. The Middle pair of shorts is a pair of bleach washed denim shorts from Topman. The bleached shorts are incroyable for the summer, however make sure you don’t roll the shorts to high, they are shorts not HOT PANTS. We can’t have the guys in shorter shorts than the girls… can we? The shorts on left and right pair of shorts are available from ASOS giving you that quirky festival edge using the dip-dye effect.
The second row of tropic/floral shorts are a must for festival attire. The left pair is from ASOS, and the pair on the right Urban Outfitters. These shorts can be dressed up with a buttoned up shirt, or down with a plain cool white tee.
We all know that the british weather is unpredictable so in the off-chance of it raining, be prepared in a pair of swim shorts, like this pair of Native Youth swim shorts available on ASOS in the middle.The pair on the right and left are both available from Urban Outfitters, so don’t worry about the rain, cos every little TING is gonna be alright.
Our first tee, is by one of our favourite up and coming independent designer brands, Happy Chap. The Evoking Happiness tee which is available in 4 different colours, takes advantage of the ‘large slogan’ tshirt trend.
The tshirt in the middle is a floral print t-shirt by Sergio DeNimes which follows this summers floral trend. There are various floral t-shirts on the market, but this one is DA BOOOMB! The third and fourth tops are available from Mr Porter if you are BALLIN‘ and in one of those moods to splash the cash, impulse buy and go a little high end… then STOP RIGHT NOW, THANK YOU VERY MUCH, IF YOU NEED SOMEBODY WITH A DESIGNER TOUCH… HEY YOU WHO ALWAYS HAS THE CASH GOTTA HIT MR PORTER IN A DASHHHHH!
Saved the best for last???? Us girls have a wider choice of outfits to wear for wireless, from accessories to footwear (don’t be jel guys) so let’s cut the chase and start with bottoms.
I do not recommend wearing a skirt to festivals, whether your crowd surfing… or grinding on yourself… like i will be… you don’t want to flash away your dignity (not mentioning any names… cough cough Lohan… exiting a car photos) if ya get my drift. You can wear a dress, but remember to wear little shorts underneath… just incase. SO here below are a few shorts that are cool and hip, that you can bump and grind to with ease.
The first and second pair of shorts are both available from Urban Outfitters, the third from Topshop. The fourth pair is from American Apparel, and the fifth and final pair for the people with ARAB MONEYYYYYYY, Net-A-Porter. These shorts will have you looking BOOTILICOUS. Can I get a WHATTTT WHATTTTTTTTT.
Any top, crop, tee can go with these shorts. Here are a few of my favourites.
The first bralet is available from ASOS, can be paired with one of the shorts listed above… actually any top I have listed can go with the shorts above, because that’s how I roll! The second embroidered boarder shirt is from Topshop. The third tee is from Just Cavalli, kicking off the URBAN trend that a lot of celebrities are following these days with the likes of Cara Delevingne and A$AP Rockyyyy rocking this trend well. The final crop is also from Asos.
Because the weather is always amazing.JUST incase the weather is feeling hormonal and it decides to rain or something… You can still look FESTIVALICIOUS… and THEN SOME!!!
The first delish kimono is from ASOS, the parka jacket in the middle is a Leah Chambray design, and the last but certainly not least kimono is from Topshop.
Accessories are one of the key things to you festival swag, so be sure to wear fashion bindis, flowers, face paint… DA WHOLEEEE SHABANGGGGG to feel the summer festival vibes. Below are a few pictures of sick festival-wear put together… my FAVE is Vanessa Hudgens… but tbh every festival she always looks AMAZEBALLS. My wireless outfit this year is inspired by her! I haven’t blogged about festival footwear becauseeee you should know by now to wear the DUTTIEST pair of old shoes you have up in HUUUURRRRR…
Remember it’s not always about the brand, if you have style you can conquer all!
Au revoir for now!
