Away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, festivals are breaking new ground. Secret Island parties in Croatia, forest shindigs in Hampshire, international headline bands gracing British soil, British bands playing Icelandic spring valleys- altogether, the festival scene is thriving.
Rain or shine, home or away, we’ll be seizing the opportunity to road test bold new looks at this year’s festivals. Stay ahead of the curve this S/S 14 by checking out our festival fashion guide.
This one’s for all the ladies braving Glastonbury. High street collections have finally acknowledged that British festivals and rain go hand in hand and have come up with a sassy solution to all your partying-in-the-rain needs. It’s called the rain mac and will save your carefully chosen OOTD from morphing into drowned rat chic-amazing right?!
Make the days brighter with a flower infused raincoat, achieve a high impact with a metallic mac or let your outfit do the talking with a transparent, clear-plastic style. Rain mac or style saviour?
Accessories are every festival lover’s best friend. Turn up the volume with palma violet floppy hats, sunflower crowns and mint chocolate satchels. Accessories are the easiest way to add a splash of colour to an otherwise understated outfit and when it comes to festivals, more is more.
If you’re still searching for a little somethin’ somethin’ to jazz up your look, go all out with bindis and glitter. You could even add a pair of novelty sunglasses to the mix to really make an impression.
The print revolution has landed. Highlighter yellow sunflower shorts, blood orange florals, speckled wayfarer sunglasses…They’re lively, they’re loud and they’re coming to a festival arena near you. Hold on to your no-colour rule with a flowery twist on the classic LBD or embrace the chance to be daring with clashing prints and accessories.
Whether you opt for neon or Neapolitan prints, matchy-matchy co-ordinates or one key piece, let the colours run by embracing this summer’s most energetic trend.
