The summer is finally here and that means festival season is upon us! In a way, the festival season has already started, with arguably the biggest festival in the world taking place a couple of months ago. That’s right, we’re talking about Coachella, but of course, seeing it was in California and they have an abundance of sun all year round, they don’t need to wait for the summer to host their amazing event. However, here in the UK, we still know how to throw a great festival and we still host some of the most famous ones in the world.
Whether you’re into more alternative music and Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds are more your style, or if dance music is your thing and you will be raving at South West Four, we know that you will be having a great time in the sun this summer in the UK.
Whilst the festivals are mainly about the music and having fun in the sun, there is a huge element of fashion at these events, with Coachella being the most fashionable of them all. In all the biggest magazines and newspapers, there were endless stories about the outfits that were standing out from the crowd. This year is different too; some of the old clichés are out, and fashion icons such as Kate Moss and Alexa Chung have been leading the way with their new styles.
Boho is still cool
There are some things that don’t change with fashion trends and Boho is still the most popular style choice at festivals this season. So, grab yourself a flowy dress, something with a fringe on it and put some flowers in your hair and you will be sure to fit in!
Florals are not just big for festivals, but they’re massive this summer season. Naturally, many are opting for floral dresses and blouses, but why not go for something more creative? We love this cool look for festivals! Which reminds us… bright coloured cool sunglasses are fab for festival season! Many are ditching their expensive Chanels and Pradas and opting for the fun, plastic sunnies. After all, all that jumping up and down at festival could easily lead to smashed pairs!
Black and White
This is where the trend has changed; it is not all about the neon colours and crazy brightness anymore. People are opting for more mellow outfits and even rocking black and white, monochrome numbers.
Again, we’re really pleased to see that people are more accepting to comfy, weather-appropriate outfits now! (Thank you A-listers who made this cool!) Now it is no longer compulsory to wear hot pants, but you can actually prepare for the unpredictable British weather. Since bomber jackets are really in right now, we are loving these as an addition to your festival outfits this summer. Of course, for events like Glastonbury, wellies are probably a good choice! That being said, they do team up great with hot pants!
