To Festival, To Festival!
The thing with festivals is, you get to wear whatever the hell you like COZ IT’S PARTY TIMES! Seriously, anything goes yeah – and that’s the same for the chap who rocks up in a bacofoil cape (so he can duck and roll that night) and a Stetson (to keep the sun off his face, natch) and the more ‘style-conscious’ among us. With the slew of smaller, boutique, day-long festivals, there is more scope to experiment – the style stakes are high and, as you don’t have to counter with the messy camping and the i’ve-just-slept-in-a-ditch hair, you’re kinda expected to look a bit more polished.
So, what to wear? I’m advising you throw as much feathery, fringed, dip-dyed, neon madness as you can into the mix. Personally, I like a blank canvas sprayed with OTT accessories. I’d be looking for a cool hat such as the studded River Island beauty, a cool t-shirt – the Stolen Girlfriend skeleton top is my preference, some shorts or a maxi skirt, some trendy but comfy runners, the neon yellow Nasty Gal Jelly Bag and a whole host of feathery, dangly goodness about my neck. Be Bold, Be Brave – wear knickers over your tights if you want to, wear all 5 types of animal print together, paint your lips hi-lighter orange, stick a headdress on. Why the freakers not?
