Festival season is in full swing. Longitude kicks off this Weekend with still Electric Picnic to come. You only have to log onto any social media site to see all the snaps and how the style at these events has evolved. I have mentioned before when talking about festival fashion, that this wasn’t always the case. For the longest time the chosen attire was more functional and weather permitting. Although mother nature does still restrict us in ways, it is not the priority. More and more are choosing to really just go for it and have fun. Add some face jewels , a hat , anything goes. Put together something you wouldn’t usually wear and really up the ante. Peacock the sh*t out of that festival.
Here are some looks that i feel wouldn’t look out of place in any field this summer. Or have a look at a magazine shoot i styled focusing on this very subject. Take some inspiration from here, there and everywhere and make it your own.
Camo has already been huge this season. It is a perfect print for roughing it at a festival. Tough and cool with a 90’s twist. Mix it up with a soft playful sundress and some boots. The bag well that is the fun factor. This would be my look of choice.
You can’t tak about festival style and not mention boho. The original bohemian vibes from legendary Woodstock are still popular today. A seriously cute two piece with accenting flower crown. Finished with the festival bag of choice – the bum bag and some tonal gladiator sandals. A really summery look.
Keeping with the boho style of things with a really cool tapestry style jacket. Paired with the festival essential – denim shorts. Tan accessories keep the look super stylish. A straw hat and some matching face paint finish off the look.
Sports luxe is really popular at the moment, not to mention cool and comfy. Playing on the 90’s vibe again but in more modern way. Lots of print , texture and rawness in this look that pulls together really well.
This look features two of this summers biggest pieces – Bolo chokers and bardot necklines. Both of which look sooo good together. Mixing a smarter cut dress like this with flat fringe booties gives a real edgy vibe. Adding in some shimmer to your bare shoulder and legs. Finish off the look with some pretty face gems.
What is your style of choice for this years festivals?
