Race you to it...
Festival fashion chops and changes with the times, but if the crop top and denim short combo isn’t really your thing, you’ve come to the right place. Think suits-all one-pieces, cult classics you’ll wear year upon year and brand spanking new bags. In a nutshell, you’re about to become the coolest festi-goer on the field. Here are the top four festival fashion trends to try before everyone else this year:
Does the science of styling separates give you nightmares? Okay, that’s a tad extreme, but when there’s live bands, Budweisers and burgers waiting, there’s no time to waste putting together festival outfits. Enter the boiler suit. Isabel Marant, Balenciaga and Alexander Wang gave it an I’m-so-cool-I-can-dress-like-a-dude-and-still-look-amazing update, and now the high street has hundreds of affordable options to rock to a festival this year. Just add boots.
T-shirts √ Jackets √ Bags √ Slogans have taken over almost everything in our wardrobe, and now there’s yet another staple under transformation: denim skirts. Because talking is so yesterday…
Lace or buckle, corsets beat all the belts. Aside from the fact they highlight your waist like no other, Madonna wore them back in the ‘80s, and ain’t that a good enough reason? Corset is! Festival star accessory = sorted.
The fishnet picked up pace as a beach bag last summer, but it’s totally fit for the festival field. Keep the rest of your outfit slick to counteract the dressed down vibes. Plus, it’ll save you the hassle of a bag search on the door, and what’s not to love about that?
To help you on your way, then, we’ve hounded the high street for the best festival fashion buys on sale now. Happy shopping…
