Festival summer is officially upon us, and whilst I still haven’t gotten over the fact that I couldn’t go to Glastonbury, there are some incredible festivals taking place over the summer. This weekend is Wireless festival in Finsbury Park, and with The Weeknd, Fetty Wap, Skepta, Wizkid, Desiigner, Sean Paul being just a small selection of an epic line up, it is literally my dream festival. On top of that I’ll be going to Fresh Island festival in Croatia next week, and V Fest towards the end of the summer.
Festival attendance means festival fashion, and it’s one of my absolute favourite types of trends. Think bohemian and floaty, little shorts and boots, or vintage inspired pieces. There are brands dedicated to festival vibes, like my friends, Amy and Jess, who set up a brand called Narlaka. They recently had a pop-up in Topshop’s flagship store, and I went along and basically bought everything. They have lots of 80’s inspired prints, feather jewellery and headpieces; it’s amazing.
With all the festivals taking place over the summer, I’ve decided to focus this week’s post on festival fashion, so here are some versatile outfit ideas for you if you’re going to a festival.
T-shirt: Calvin Klein (Sold out! I’ve attached another CK style)
Boots: Pretty Little Thing
Sunglasses: Ray Ban
Scarf: Vintage Dolce & Gabbana (I’ve attached a similar one as this one is unavailable because it’s vintage)
Necklace: Legacy Collection
I absolutely love this necklace, as not only do a percentage of profits go to helping disadvantaged children in Africa, a part of the necklace is made from the fence at Robben Island prison: the prison Nelson Mandela was in.
Playsuit: Isabel Marant (Sold out vintage- I’ve linked a really cute playsuit from Pretty Little Thing as an alternative)
Necklace: Emily Mortimer
Shoes: River Island (Sold out! I’ve linked a pair of ankle boots that work really well with the alternative playsuit above)
Leaf ring: Evra the Art of Eve
So there are my different festival fashion looks, what do you think? Have I inspired your festival wardrobe? I really love the slogan T-shirt with the skirt, you really can’t go wrong with a slogan T-Shirt as you can wear it with shorts, skirts, dungarees – everything! Plus they are super fashionable right now. Don’t forget to check out my empowerment slogan T-Shirt brand égaliTEE
