While there may be no Glastonbury; The Isle of Wight, Hackney, Leeds and Reading all make sure that that the British festival season gets in to full swing. Through the mud, mosh pits and dodgy glow sticks (please don’t try and drink out of them) some great fashion trends have emerged each festival season, and this year is no different. As Ted Hughes said, “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only inadequate clothing”. Festivals inspire creativity and so we believe they are a great place to spy the latest trends and keep you one step ahead of the rest.
There has been a lot of denim flying around this festival season and with it being so versatile, the celebrities have been rocking out denim jeans, shorts and jackets in all different shapes and sizes. We’re a big fan of these MOTO Gold Stud, bleach wash Denim Hotpants from Topshop. A classic festival item that can go with almost anything; from light frilly tops to heavy bomber jackets. We think it would look great with this rather neat flower girl garland adorning your locks, also from Topshop.
Floral patterns have been extremely popular around all the festivals and again go great with a huge variety of items. Get back to your hippy roots and feel the music man with a great selection of cut off floral tops from River Island, top it off with a cropped leather jacket and you’ll be mixing with Alexa Cheung in no time.
Be a Lad, Go Bold
Festival fashion for men has embraced bold colours and patterns, so stand out this season by embracing all things vivid. However, if the thought of bright clothes isn’t for you, try teaming coloured bottoms with plain white t-shirts, or go for the more conservative nautical theme. Pastel colours have been tipped to be huge this summer and so festivals are the perfect place to try them out.
