Festival season is here! This means that festival style is back again for another year! I always struggle with what to take to festivals, it’s either too hot or pissing down. I’ve been trying to change up my wardrobe to be more spring/summer friendly.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t go full Coachella with braids and glitter (I’m irrationally scared of glitter). But I do like to make sure that the clothes I take and wear are cool, functional and relatively weather proof.
Trying to think ahead and plan for both the heat and the rain for V Festival hasn’t been an easy feat. The middle of August most places in the world you can almost guarantee sunshine. Nope, not England.
Festival Style Look #1
The first festival look is a classic, monochrome number. Featuring this unreal patterned shirt by Hammond & Co. from Debenham’s Resort Shirt Range. It’s a volcano print. Short sleeves shirts are never normally my thing, but at a festival, you need to be free to dance and party.
I teamed the shirt up with a plain white tee to really help the pattern pop. Ray-Bans have become part of my everyday summer wardrobe. I’d never owned a pair of expensive sunglasses before this (insert story of me being forgetful and clumsy here).
Old school vans are the saving grace of the festival style. Team the up with some tube socks; Nike are my go to. Obviously, if it’s chucking it down with rain then opt for something much more suitable. There’s nothing worse than losing a shoe, trust me.
I’ve never been a massive fan of patterned shirts but it screams cubism to me. Volcano and cubism; what more do you need from a shirt. It’s 100% Viscose so is silky and lightweight to the touch. Be wary though, it’s a man made fiber so won’t keep you cool.
A festival outfit isn’t complete without a pair of Hunter’s Wellington boots. The quintessentially british festival style piece. Cleaning them the day after is the worst thing known to man (mine are still dirty from last year)!
More festival looks coming soon to the blog!
