Festival season: what to wear
19th July 2017
The music scene has been responsible for some revolutionary changes in culture over the years, not least in the fashion world. With musicians and music-lovers alike leading the way in fashion and setting trends, it’s no surprise that music festivals across the country are grounds for some of the best looks of the summer. To celebrate another summer of music and fashion, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite festival looks:
When the sun’s shining wear…
Easy sunshine festival looks for the girls include embroidered sundresses and playsuits and the festival staple, denim cut-offs. If you’re feeling really summery, florals and tassels are a great way to add a sunny vibe to your look and channel your inner Coachella. Pair these with some comfy, flat shoes to keep walking and dancing easy, and your summer festival wardrobe is sorted!
For the guys, you can never go wrong with a statement tee and classic pair of shorts, all topped off with a stylish loafer to get you from A to B.
If it’s a washout wear…
The Great British Summer is notorious for switching from glorious sunshine to torrential rain in the blink of an eye, so festival season is usually associated with lots of mud. Thankfully, we’ve mastered the art of looking good, whatever the weather.
Ladies should keep an eye out for big jumpers and bright and bold raincoats (there are plenty around at the moment). Shorts will be your best friend in the wet weather, as no one likes a wet ankle, so make sure your go-to festival shorts are still packed.
Guys should stay away from the skinny jeans at all costs; denim is no fun when it’s wet. A stylish pair of chino shorts will give you a much more sophisticated look, and are likely to dry out that much faster. To keep the chill off, a bomber jacket is a great final statement to top off your outfit.
For the loafer lover wear…
There are those among us who will wear our loafers come rain or shine. For the loafer-loving man, a classic festival look can be achieved with just a pair of skinny jeans, tailored shirts, plenty of prints and choice accessories. Pair these with your classic loafers and you’ll be good to go.
