Festival Glam

The festival season is well and truly underway, as the clouds of Glastonbury begin to gather together, it’s time to start preparing those show-stopping, sun-worshipping outfits! Or, looking out of my window, perhaps rain proof would be more suitable. The most fashionable event in the music calendar kicked of the festival season in April. Coachella, the A-list festival, saw some of the red carpets best dressed flocking to California to break out their bo hoo and some of the outfits were fantastic.

Above; the Victoria’s Secret girls looking awfully good in their festival chique. Hot pants, ankle boots, big hats and even the classic Siena Miller look waist coat. It shows you can always rely on crochet, fringing and denim to create the ultimate festival fashion look, no matter what’s on trend.

And here are a few of the other outfits I’ve drawn inspiration from.

For the unpredictable weather and slightly less glamorous UK festivals there are a few essentials that are a must. First and foremost, wellies are essential to ensure you can survive the entire weekend warm and dry. Hunter have so much selection that there’s a welly for everyone. The truth of festivals is that at some point we’re going to want to cover up our unwashed locks, for this a stylish hat will do the trick. So pick a Panama or a big floppy to stick don on sunday.  A plain black dress or one with a nice print can hide a multitude of sins, from beer stains to mud spears. Accessories can make all the difference when you are up against the elements for a long weekend, adding layers of bangles, necklaces and bracelets can add personality to your plain black dress and be chopped and changed for reuse. Lastly, in case you see any sunshine, a nice pair of Raybans will finish off any festival look perfectly.
