It’s the time of year when sun, music and fashion collides – yes, we’re talking festival season and if you’ve managed to book those tickets on time, one of you next considerations will be what to wear once you’re there. Festival season used to be about taking the clothes you didn’t actually mind getting dirty, but these days it’s got a bit more of a catwalk feel. So what items need to be on your festival fashion to-buy list this year?
The Fringe Detail
Whether it’s around the edges of your crop top or your poncho (we would recommend you take both just in case the weather decides to do an about-turn), fringes are an essential part of your festival wardrobe – they can complete a bohoo look or give off an aztec vibe and will be guaranteed to complete your laid back style.
The Boyfriend Shorts
…and shirts. And jeans. Yes, the boyfriend look is still very much in this summer and unlike some other festival fashion essentials, they have the added advantage of being comfortable too, something that comes in handy when you’re camping, no matter how fashion forward you are. So yes, those boyfriend shorts not only look fantastic, but that denim will stand up to all those festival shenanigans too.
If the sun does decide to shine, having some head gear to hand is no bad thing, and the must-have festival head gear is the fedora. Great for casual looks or finishing off a more blinged-up outfit, why would you want to wear anything else?
The Midi Dress
Maxi dresses are all very well and good but wear them at a festival and it’s guaranteed they’ll be dragged through the mud and never see the light of day again. So why not go for a midi dress this year? You can still get them same boho styles and prints, but there’s a much greater chance you can keep them away from the mud and wear them long after festival season has finished.
There’s one thing that’s for certain – you’ll be short of space in that backpack. One solution? The humble play suit. Practical, stylish and cute, this is one festival fashion essential you won’t want to be without.
