Whether you’re off to rock out in the mud at Glastonbury or are jetting off to sunny Spain for Benicassim, get your festival look ready with these fashion essentials. Feel free as a bird in boho inspired layers, embrace your inner 90s kid in colourful crop tops or go girly grunge in a floral pac-a-mac. Whatever your style… grab your tent, a group of friends, your favourite outfit and go!

Boho Babe

This gorgeous white embroidered dress is the base for this fabulous and floaty outfit. Wear with a kimono or cover up along with beaded sandals for the perfect hippie chick look. There is no such thing as too much jewellery with this outfit either; layer up those bangles and throw on an oversized floppy hat.

Hair? A loose French plait or fishtail braid.
Make Up? Minimal with a nude lip.

90s Kid

Channel 1997 with this 90s inspired festival look. Think bright coloured cropped tops, distressed denim and friendship bracelets – though platform shoes aren’t advised with all that walking! We adore this Miami crop from one of our newly stocked brands, Illustrated People. Zig a zag ah!

Hair? High pony or Gwen Stefani inspired buns
Make Up? A bright pink lip and colourful nails.

Rock Chick

Get this look with a classic parka, biker boots, distressed denim shorts and band tee. Pair with mirrored sunglasses for an “I’m with the band” look. This Pink Floyd graphic t-shirt is actually borrowed from the boys but shh we won’t tell! Rock on!

Hair? Down with a messy look.
Make Up? Smokey eyes are the way forward.

Girly Grunge

Mix the best of the 2014 trends with a little bit of grunge and a hint of girliness for this look. With a must-have printed pac-a-mac and quilted rucksack, dress it down with ankle boots and add a touch of pink with this lightweight cami.

Hair? Wavy and tousled with a few plaits here and there.
Make Up?  A coral lip and a dash of eye liner.
