“I want to look weird…but not too weird!” (Two Irish girls discussing festival fashion.)
Dressing for festivals is great fun as it allows you to explore different styles and wear something you might not have considered previously. Have fun but be mindful and respectful , don’t appropriate an entire other culture!
I’m considering Longitude again or maybe Tennants Vital as the Red Hot Chilli Peppers are playing…hmm… #decisions
Wherever I go, I’m going to dress the part. While I was in Edinburgh, I visited the Topshop on Prince’s St and got loads of ideas for festival outfits.
This shiny mac is perfect as a cover-up.
It would look deadly over this crochet top.
For festivals, I love a playsuit or a t-shirt and high-waisted shorts combo. The pastel playsuit is from H&M and the shorts and Star Wars t-shirt are both Penneys.
Festivals also call for sequins so what could be better than these Topshop shorts with turquoise sequins or the matching denim jacket?
A sequin bomber is right up my street and this one from We All Shine is also available at Topshop.
This PrettyLittleThing top is on my wishlist, I’m buying it the minute it’s restocked on July 4th!
For vintage festival looks, try concessions such as Loving Youth at Topshop. Affordable vintage and cute prints, what more could you want? They have bardot tops, reworked camouflage halternecks, printed dungarees and shorts.
A printed swimsuit works equally well as a bodysuit with shorts or ripped jeans. I’d pair this funky H&M one with fray edge shorts.
It’s not a festival unless someone’s wearing tie-dye. Europe1972 on Etsy have fab tie dye t-shirts like this rainbow one. For a cool hippie vibe, check out their shop.
Finally patches and iron-on badges are a great way to liven a plain denim jacket. These pastel ones from Jade Boylan Etsy are girly but with loads of attitude!
As for festival hair, little French braids on the crown of the head and Mohawk style braids are where it’s at.
This textured messy braid created by TressesbyTress is the ultimate in festival cool.
I also love this tiny centre braid as seen on Kate Bosworth (remember her?!)
