The weather is finally warming up, so that can only mean one thing… it’s festival season! Whether you’re a seasoned pro and get your tickets every year or you’re heading to your first festival this summer, the outfits you pick to squeeze into your backpack need to be chosen very carefully. You want to look good and feel comfortable right? Perhaps check the weather forecast before you head off though!
Here are a few of our festival fashion faves to inspire you…
Dress it up to the max
Long, flowing maxi dresses are so popular right now. They look fabulous, really make a statement and are so easy to throw on and wear with anything! We love these two from Pia Rossini. The Casablanca (on the left) is lovely and loose fitting, keeping you cool when you’re squeezed into a field with hundreds of festival-goers! The pretty lace crochet detailing around the neckline also adds something extra.
The Delray maxi dress is gorgeous too. It comes in a tie-dye print with colourful embroidery around the neckline and across the hemline. Easy to pack and great to be seen in!
Looking for the perfect shorts?
Phase Eight have come up trumps with these two gorgeous pairs of shorts. The Theodora are your classic denims that’ll go with anything – an essential for any festival wardrobe. Sometimes it’s great to make a change from summer dresses and go cool and casual with easy shorts and a T-shirt. We love these Imie striped shorts; they’re a bit smarter than the denims, but still so easy to wear and will look great with a plain black vest or tee.
In the bag
Backpacks are so stylish at the moment – gone are the days of wearing one on two shoulders being a complete fashion faux pas, nowadays that’s THE way to wear them! This fabulous Ashwood leather backpack looks so chic and the secure zip will keep your money and other festival essentials close to hand. But if it’s something more colourful and fun you’re after then take a look at this gorgeous Pia Rossini tote, with fabulous pineapples – it’s a fave here in the office! We love this vibrant Amanda Lamb bag too, complete with must-have tassels.
All about accessories
Hopefully the sun will be out and it will be blissfully warm when you’re hitting the festivals this summer, so staying safe and protected from the sun is a must, and a large sun hat has to be on your list. Check out this Pia Rossini Somer hat – with the cute, colourful pom pom trim, it’s a fabulous design.
Sliders are so comfortable, just like slippers, and these gorgeous metallic silver ones from Slydes will go with anything you’re wearing. Team them with maxi dresses or skirts, or just slip them on with jeans or shorts, they’re really versatile and look great.
This gorgeous Pia Rossini Celeste cover-up is a real statement piece. We love the lace finish and how it can just transform a simple outfit instantly. Throw it on over your denim shorts and vest and voila, you have a whole new look! You probably won’t want to take your finest jewellery pieces away with you, so just add in a splash of colour with this fabulous necklace and you’re done!
We hope you’ve been inspired, now just pray for sunny weather!
