Bestival. Leeds/Reading. Glastonbury. The summer months aren’t just about the great weather – but live music and lots of it. So with the festival season fast approaching, there’s no better time to start thinking about your outfits with a little help from bonprix.
We’ve all seen the likes of Fearne Cotton, Sophie Ellis Bextor and Kate Moss strutting around festivals (even muddy ones) looking nothing short of gorgeous, so make sure you’ve got your style sussed before you pack those tickets and tent, and get festival bound.
To help you on your way, high street style hero bonprix have taken inspiration from Vanessa Hudgens and created a complete festival outfit that oozes boho elegance. It’s a look that suits all ages and is all about layering.
Bonprix’s festival outfit is made up of a gorgeous Broderie Anglaise detail tunic, chocolate faux-suede shorts, a cross-body bag and low wedge sandals. The look is timeless – it takes hippy styling but smartens it up with those chic black sandals and cute textured shorts. But what’s really great about this festival outfit, is that it provides the perfect foundation for adding your own personal touch.
Complete the look with accessories of your choice and you’ll soon put your own stamp on this outfit. Sunglasses are a festival essential – whether that’s down to sun or too much partying – and there are some great styles out there this season. Choose from retro cat-eye styles to hippy 1960s round shades.
Then there’s your hair to think of – and with washing facilities not being the easiest things to come by at festivals, it makes sense to make sure you’ve got your accessories sorted. Big 1950s headscarves are still popular and look great on short hair and long. Alternatively, style your fringe away from your face with a few well-placed grips – plait to the side, quiff on top, or simply slide one hair clip into the side and keep it simple. Floral headbands are also key for the boho-hippy look, or make your own daisy chain and keep things really natural. There are countless ways to finish off your look but don’t forget to pack a can of dry shampoo to keep greasy hair at bay.
Finally, make sure you don’t gloss over jewellery. Obviously, a festival isn’t the best place to flaunt your bling – so keep it simple, minimal and inexpensive. Friendship bracelets look great when worn with a boho outfit. Just layer them up on your wrist for instant ‘boho queen’ appeal. Anklets and toe rings would also look fab when paired with these low-wedge sandals. But to really top your outfit off, consider an ear cuff. They’re super-popular at the moment – especially ear cuffs that are attached to a stud earring with a loop of chain. Funky, quirky and just that little bit rock and roll, which is obviously the perfect finishing touch for a festival outfit.
