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.
