If you are heading off to one of the plethora of music festivals this summer, you are in no doubt in some sort of fashion quandary. There is so much choice for festival season, regarding clothes, that it can be difficult to know where to start! Festivals inspire our inner bohemian, hippy chick, but it is important that you don’t get stuck in the festival fashion rut of flowers in your hair or Hunter wellingtons. If you want to make a fashionable impact on festival season, then follow this guide:
Ditch the Floral Headband
Sadly, this trend has had its day. If you own a headband covered in flowers, it is time to say goodbye. For any fashionable girl about town, you need to ensure that you are ahead of the fashion pack, not rehashing previous trends from years gone by. This year, headwear is all about the Stetson or the trilby. What is more, by adopting a hat as your festival fashion choice, you won’t have to worry about greasy locks for the remainder of your weekend. It’s practical and bang on trend!
While dry shampoo isn’t fashionable, this handy cosmetic will ensure that your hair remains festival fresh. Do not underestimate dry shampoo, your hair will look, and smell, fantastic in an instant. So, if you are hitting the Isle of Wight festival, Glastonbury or T in the Park, you need to ensure that you pack this bad boy.
If the weather this year is anything to go by, we could be in for a dry summer. Ditch the wellington boots and toughen up your look with biker boots. They are the ultimate footwear accessory for festival season 2014. They are robust enough to keep your feet dry, fierce enough to make any outfit look amazing and bang on trend. You will be sure to turn heads in biker boots, for all the right reasons.
Some festival fashion accessories never seem to fade, and the denim short is seemingly here to stay. If you want the ultimate in chic festival-wear then it has to be a pair of denim shorts. Ensure that they are long enough to cover your bottom to avoid any serious fashion faux pas. Channel your inner Kate Moss with a white, crisp cotton kaftan, wooden accessories and your brand new festival biker boots to ensure that you look amazing and chic all weekend long. You will look nothing short of fabulous in an amazing pair of denim shorts.
Tribal accessories are going to be huge for summer 2014. Ditch last year’s Aztec looking tribal prints and go for big, bold African style accessories to ensure that you remain ahead of the game. Opt for dark coloured wooden bangles that you can stack up your arm. Brassy, dark gold tones are perfect for necklaces. Ensure that your necklaces are adorned with feathers or sharks teeth (fake, obviously) for serious tribal indulgence. You will amazing, sassy and low key all in one. Festival fashion has never been so interesting.
