The festival season will be upon us before we know it and Forever 21 are already on the case with their ultra-useful Festival Survival Guide. No doubt you’ll want to attend in show-stopping style but as well as standout style there is also a need for comfort. Whether you are a glamorous pop princess, grunge girl, oh so boho or a hip hop honey, follow these tips, to ensure that you nail it this Summer.
Shades and HatsSunnies are a festival must-have. Go big or go home and be sure to combat the heat in an oversized pair. Opt for round, cat-eye, rectangular or half-frames in subtle, bold or printed hues. Stay hidden with dark lenses or choose eye-catching mirrored lenses or super-cool graduated lenses.
Must-Have Round Sunglasses $5.80Stay shady with a hat. Choose an on-trend fedora or a traditional Summer straw hat. Stay neutral in earthy hues of beige, brown and black. Add pops of color or texture with patterned hat-bands.
BagsCarry your necessities along with you in a useful backpack, crossbody or fanny pack, all of which, will ensure that you can keep your hands free for dancing along to your favorite bands and snacking to keep your strength up. Standout in floral, tribal or striped prints or add a little glam with luxe faux-leather.
Cardigans and SweatersIt’s always wise to have a light cover-up casually draped across your shoulders or tied around your waist for when the sun goes down. A cardigan or sweater will cut it. Oversized and long with boho fringing or textured panelling. Go plain or patterned and be sure to choose a style that complements your outfit.
The Actual OutfitBe sure to make a statement in classic festival trends. Denim hot-pants are the most obvious choice. Team these with a daring but ultra-sexy cropped top or bralette. Opt for a laid-back tank or cute cami with ruffle or fringe detailing. Make your shorts or pants your standout piece with flirty floral, striped or tribal patterned versions. A jumpsuit, romper or floaty dress can be a great alternative.
ShoesWhen it comes to shoes comfort is key. Flats are the way to go, be kind to your feet in gladiator, thong or t-strap sandals. Opt for metallic or woven embellishment to glam up your feet. Alternatively cover up a bit more in Western-style booties. Cut-out, buckled, lace-up or studded with flat or low chunky heels. Add a sporty touch in fail-safe sneakers. Choose classic plimsolls or high-tops in solid hues or standout patterns.
Of course style is important for all you festival goers, we all want to look the part, but remember comfort is also key to ensure that you have the best time . Enjoy!
