Ok, so the great British weather isn’t always the most reliable thing, but one thing you can rely on this summer is some great trends, and what better place to rock out the newest fashions for 2010, than at a festival! The venue of choice for many an A list (and Z list) celeb, festivals are not only the best place to go for all the latest music, but also a chance to show off the latest fashions.
From solo starlets Pixie Lott and Lily Allen to models Kate Moss and Daisy Lowe, anyone who’s anyone will be out and about at one of the many events over the summer.
To make sure you stand out from the celebrity crowd, here are a few festival looks for under £50 as chosen by music and fashion lovers Chloe, Steph, Sunny and Bhavna from Wardrobe Mag blog that will make your festival frivolities even better.
Bring on the clothes and music (but no rain please)!
Chloe’s Festival Essentials:
When I saw Kate Bosworth in a cool crochet dress at Coachella this April, I knew I wanted to recreate the look for my summer festivals. The F&F Ladder Stitch vest top (was £10 now £7.50) is just long enough to act as a knitted mini dress, similar to Kate’s. Instead of opting for ankle boots, I instead chose some F&F black gladiator sandals (£12) to keep the look more summery (I’m being a little optimistic about the British summertime). Topped off with a F&F studded trilby (£5) to disguise any bad hair days and a F&F black studded straw bag (was £15 now £11.25) to hold festival essentials like beers and baby wipes, it’s the perfect festival outfit for a bargain price of £35.75!
Sunny’s Summer necessities:
My festival look is inspired by the Military trend, which is going to be even bigger come autumn/winter 2010. The ‘nations sweetheart’ Cheryl Cole was seen rocking this trend during Radio 1′s Big Weekend in Bangor a couple of weeks ago so if it’s good enough for her…! For my outfit I’ve picked an F&F khaki military t-shirt (£6.00) to wear with some F&F neutral canvas shorts (£6.00), a different alternative to the festival staple of denim shorts. Although wellington boots are essential for muddy festivals, these black F&F beaded cuff sandals (£15.00), which are also available in a tan colour, will give my outfit a glam edge. Studs are still bang on trend this season so this black F&F studded cross body bag (£10.00) is perfect for storing my camera and phone. At a total of £37 this military inspired outfit deserves a salute!
Steph’s Festival Fashion must haves:
For my festival outfit I’ve chosen the F&F Fringed t-shirt dress (£10), which will keep the look summery, but also add a bit of grunge with the black and fringing detail. The F&F High cuffed sandals (£10) will be great to add a bit of glamour to the look, keeping the Wellies on standby of course! The F&F cross body bag (£18) is the perfect place to keep all your camping essentials. This F&F trilby (£5) is a necessity to cover up ‘festival hair’ with the purple trim also adding a bit of colour to the outfit. I think this is a great festival outfit which can even be worn again on those upcoming summer holidays, and all for just £43!
Bhavna’s Festival Fashion:
For my festival look, I have picked out practical pieces, which will still keep me in line with the latest spring/summer trends. Hopefully where there’s a festival there will be sun, so this F&F striped crop top (£8) will keep me cool. The best thing about this crop top is that it’s nautical- a trend which never goes out of style. I’ve kept the rest of the look simple with a pair of staple denim shorts (F&F £12), F&F blue canvas deck shoes (£6) and an F&F cross body bag (£12) for all my essentials. A perfect nautical look to soak up the festival spirit this year at a total of £38!
