Festival Wellies

April 16, 2011

With Coachella taking place this weekend in California, festival season has officially begun! There are many must-have’s to see you through a weekend at a festival but wet wipes, dry shampoo and shewee aside, a good pair of wellies is the absolute essential. Here are our favourite wellington boots for festivals in 2011.

Hunter Wellies – 15% off & Free Worldwide Delivery

Adorned by celebrities including Kate Moss, Alexa Chung, Nicole Richie and Pixie Lott to name but a few, Hunter wellies are the number 1 choice of footwear for festival goers. They are pretty expensive, but they will last far longer than any high street pair, and if you’re a fashionista, these are a must! The good news is that you can get 15% off these until the end of April with offer code WELLY15 and they all have free worldwide delivery too. Click here to see the full Hunter collection.

Oversized Sunglasses

April 11, 2011

When shopping for sunglasses we follow 2 simple rules, no matter what the year or current trends:

    1) Don’t spend over £20 on a pair (because we’re always losing or breaking them and can never be bothered to use the protective pouch past day 3 of owning them).
    2) The bigger the better (large enough to cover the majority of our face when we’ve had a little too much sun or we haven’t done our make up).

With these rules in mind, these are the 3 pairs on the top of our sunglasses wishlist this season:

Lipsy Logo Bow Sunglasses – We adore the super cute silver bows on the side of these sunglasses and the glimpse of  pink on the inner arms – girly and gorgeous and perfect to wear with feminine florals or a mini playsuit.

Silver Aviators – Ah, the Aviators, how we love thee! These are our festival sunglasses of choice and look great with a pair of distressed turn up denim shorts, a rock print cut off vest top and a pair of gladiators.

Tortoiseshell Wrap Sunglasses – Timeless, glamorous and sexy. These sunnies look best teamed with a maxi dress, chunky gold jewellery and a pair of wedges whilst sitting in a beer garden (or better still a beach bar!) on a long summer’s evening.

Festival Fashion

August 26, 2010

Festival season is upon us, and with Leeds and Reading Festivals happening this weekend, here is Girls Wishlist’s guide to festival fashion essentials.

Festival Footwear

short floral wellies wellington boot wedges gold gladiator sandals
Short Floral Wellies – £14 Wedge Wellies – £35 Metallic Gladiators – £14

With the unpredictable British weather wellies are a festival essential, but a pair of gladiators are also fantastic if there’s not a rain cloud or mud field in sight!

Festival Accessories

paisley scarf straw trilby fringed suede bag
Paisley Scarf – £10 Straw Trilby – £15 Fringed Suede Bag – £25

Not only do these accessories look great at a festival but they’re functional too. A scarf will keep you warm, a hat will cover up a whole array of bad-hair-day sins after 3 days without a shower, and a roomy bag is required to keep hold of all of your valuables (and smuggle your drinks into the arena)!

Keeping Warm at Festivals

striped hoody pink fur gilet cheap biker jacket
Striped Hoody – £19.99 Pink Furry Gilet – £38 Biker Jacket – £34.99

Standing in a British field all day can get rather chilly at festivals so make sure you go prepared with some layering pieces to keep you warm.

Festival Basics

daisy duke denim shorts black leggings printed t shirt
Denim Shorts – £28 Leggings – £15 Printed T-Shirt – £32

A printed T-shirt, denim shorts and a pair of leggings can be mixed and matched to form your festival capsual wardrobe. Great for living out of a tent as they don’t take up too much space either.

Dressing Up at Festivals

floral mini dress black play suit floral jumpsuit
Floral Print Dress – £25 Black Playsuit – £25 Floral Jumpsuit – £26

Fashion is almost as important as the music at festivals, so don’t forget to take your favourite summer dress or playsuit so that you can at least make an effort and look great in the photos on day 1!

Festival Jewellery

pink & gold bangles flower corsage necklace Feather earrings
Bangle Stack – £14 Flower Corsage Necklace – £8 Feather & Leaf Earrings – £9

Stand out from the festival crowds with some beautiful jewellery, it can dress up and give a fashion edge to even the plainest outfit.
