Festival Style

It’s festival season and one of my favourites is just around the corner, T in The Park, has been an event I have attended for years and whilst you
might consider: music, camping, friends and maybe even mud. I, however, always think
about festival fashion. 

As it is Scotland, I always stuck to
Hunters and wax Barbour jackets to keep warm and shield me from the elements.
However, as times move on and festival fashion shifts I think its time to
change it up – think more Coachella, less wellies and raincoats. 

First thing first. You want to cover all
bases, for my festival fashion look this year I’m laying the
foundation for the look in this Miss Selfridge floral playsuit. Floral was huge
at Coachella, especially in the form of floaty and pretty mini dresses, but
lets be honest, if your on top of someone’s shoulders singing your heart out
during Calvin Harris, a playsuit is probably a better fit. 

For a Jacket, go for denim, it’s huge this year
in general but it was also a hit with festival goers who varied their styling
of denim jackets. Tying it around their waist during the day and draping it
over their shoulders at night. It’s the perfect carefree jacket to add to your
pretty or simple base. 

In terms of footwear, Dr
Martens, or any other sturdy biker boot, would work perfectly. Sturdy enough but still give off that pretty chic vibe that is so in this summer. Another tip is to wear socks, even though its summer, your feet will be cold walking through all that rain and mud. If you are
camping for the weekend, i’d probably still suggest you pack wellies incase of
rain, so that if it does start then you can wear them to the festival and keep
your boots for the campsite. 

Up top, go for either a hat or dainty
jewellery with lots of rings, it will work in perfectly with that pretty but
grunge look. In terms of sunglasses, you’ll need them, even if the sun doesn’t
shine – but remember to pack your least favourite pair incase
you loose them.

Mostly you’ll want to feel comfortable
and warm but you also want to look cool enough for all those instagram photos
you’ll be snapping. Going for a pretty outfit base and layering up with
different jackets and accessories will help you achieve this. For this years
festival style i’d suggest thinking less about traditional festival wear and
more about whimsical grunge styles. It will look great – I promise! 

Can’t wait to
