The long winter nights are passing and you’re dreaming of those sweet summer days. Festival season is nearing which only means one thing…festival fashion! Festivals are a time to let go of conventional dress code and channel your inner unicorn. This is a time where glitter smeared all over your face is totally acceptable and fluorescent coloured wigs are there to save your bad hair days.
Festival fashion is no longer a pair of wellies and a waterproof coat, it’s a time to express your sartorial prowess which society suppresses. There are no rules, so big and as bold as you please! However, you don’t want to be cliché so we’ve created a list to ensure you get the insta-savvy look this season!
When in doubt, wear a wig! When do you ever have the chance to match your hair to your outfits? Short, long, curly or braided… this is the ideal way to keep you looking fierce and tame your mane! Ever fancied a fringe and a short bob but too afraid? The looks are endless and fuss-free. If you are not a fan of wigs, why not try rainbow coloured braids? French Platt with your favourite colours and you’re set up for the festival with some serious sass.
An absolute festival must is a selection of kimonos. The kimono is the star of the show, whether you’re a sucker for paisley or a die-hard tie die lover, there is a kimono out there for you! The beauty of it is, a few savvy kimonos jazz up simple shorts and t-shirts and enable you to pack light. Perhaps choose three distinct statement pieces and you’ll have a different look each day with little fuss! Channel your inner bohemian babe or disco diva with a unicorn sequin look.
Become a mermaid but remember to look after our beautiful oceans, eco glitter is a cruelty-free way to shine! Play around with different colours and sequins, whether its half-moons from your temples or under your eyes, get creative and transform your face into a disco ball. Glitter goddesses don’t just apply it to their face…why not try French plats and a glitter parting? or a diamond pout with glitter lips? It’s super easy to apply, use Vaseline or another adhesive and dab away! Festival fields are your time to sparkle, so don’t forget your ‘guilt free’ glitter!
You want to avoid a blister disaster, so pack your shoes wisely! Comfort really is key here, but comfort can be cute! Why not try some rainbow laces in your favourite pair of doc martins or a pair of tie die comfy socks? Take your comfiest boots and jazz them up with accessory’s to look fab but be functional.
You are a queen and you deserve a crown! So why not spice up your life with a festival head crown?! Whether you’re vibing a flower power hippy chic or a sequin dreamer it’s time to take back your throne queen bee. Or perhaps make your statement in a feather headdress and become a true warrior goddess. Or maybe your sass can be embraced in a sequin military hat. Whichever you fancy, just remember it’s all in the headwear, honey!
British festivals are renowned for pouring it down, but that doesn’t mean you have to dampen your sass. By all means, remember the practicalities but make them fabulous. Why not try a holographic unicorn raincoat rather than a plastic poncho? Or strut your stuff in some wedge wellies. A fur coat is the best way to stay warm but stay sass. Bet on a bum bag, but make it a sparkly one! And remember your sunglasses for those ever-changing sunny spells, use it as an opportunity to pull off the wackiest pair you can find.
So there you have it, a fashionista guide to festivals this summer! Whatever the weather, there is always a way to look insta-fabulous. However, the best accessory is your smile, so make sure your shining and smiling at the festivals this summer.
