Woohooo, festival season is finally here! Coachella is somewhat geographically far away for us to go to, but no worries: there are plenty of cool festivals in england you can visit this season. We’re so excited to kick off with BBC’s The Biggest Weekend festival and for the rest of our usuals such as Isle of Wright, Bestival and Reading/Leeds Festival, we couldn’t contain ourselves and just had to put together a festival season guide. So without further ado, here’s Fashiola’s festival season edit!
All the festival outfits you’ll want to be seen in
Festival outfits basics
Whatever style you choose for this year’s festival outfits, here are some basic items you just must keep in mind.
Boho chic - fringe & florals are your best friends
Always appropriate for festivals, boho has never truly vanished from the summer scene. Think fringe fashion, think florals, think ruffles, think statements, think embellishments. Luckily for us these trends come back around every so often, so investing in a great midi dress or a pair of fringe boots will not be a waste of your money. Add another boho touch by mixing different kinds of materials and patterns for a fun festival outfit.
Are you the rock chick around the block? With a cool pair of frayed shorts, a mesh crop top and a leather jacket for when it’s starting to rain (sigh) your rock vibe remains unaffected. Add a few fringe items into the mix (think fringe hat or boots) for a touch of boho feel. We’re going alllll back allllll day long!
Keep dry from the rain
I mean.. we’re still in the UK, which means rain and mud. If you’re planning to go to festivals in england, you must own a few rainwear items like a festival raincoat and a pair of rainboots: it’s just the rule. Match your festival raincoat and boots with the vibe of your outfit: if you’re going for boho pick something in pastel shades like baby blue or soft pink. But if you’re planning on going all black, choose a dark coloured festival raincoat and boots (blue, purple or green). A favourite festival raincoat style of ours is the transparent: it matches everything!
