The festival season is coming soon, many music lovers and all round party people alike will be descending upon any one (or more) of the best events the music business has to offer this summer. With your tickets purchased, camping gear and ear plugs at the ready, the only thing left is what to wear. So seeing as we will flocking there anyway, might as well flock in style, right?
- Incorporate trend-tickers with comfortable garb. Biker boots teamed with pretty are always a surefire winner. Glam and grunge make for an easy festival look. Other looks that lends themselves particularly well to the muddy (or sun drenched) fields include boho, vintage and military chic.
- Don’t wear sandals. Ever. Speaking from experience, if you don’t mind the dirt. I ‘m pretty sure you would mind the missing (or at the very least, badly bruised) appendages. Flip flops are the worst; keep them for the beach.
- Be bag smart. Whereas a fanny pack may not ever be in the running for any type of fashion awards, keeping your essentials safe at all times is a must. Invest in a bag that can keep close to the body and it doesn’t open easily for your money, phone and all important wet wipes.
- Don’t take anything valuable. A festival is not a place for your designer shades, one of a kind dresses and heirloom bracelets. When packing an item consider how you would feel if you lost it-if it involves tears, it’s the best leave it home.
- Consider the climate. If you festival is in a place where are chances of wet weather are high so team your wellies with faded denim (shirt and shorts-take your pick) and parka for rain-proof chic. If you are heading to a warmer country, make sure you incorporate a hat and a sunnies into your festival wardrobe. Do keep in mind (particularly if you are sleeping in a tent) that temperatures may drop at night, so pack accordingly.
- Don’t opt for a high maintenance hairstyle. No matter how careful you promise yourself you are going to be, chances are by the end of the first day you are going to come out looking as if you were dragged through a hedge backwards. Go for easily ,no fuss hair- festivals favourites are messy plaits, shaggy waves and casual updos. If you do fall prey to a frizzy hair disaster, no worry that’s what hats are for.
7.Do wear makeup. No one wants to look like the exhausted, unwashed mess they doubtlessly are by the end of the weekend, do they? Having said this, keep the makeup simple: Concealer for dark circles, a touch of blusher for a healthy flush, some good waterproof mascara and a dash of colour on the lips. Intelligently applied makeup will have you looking almost as if you have had a great night’s sleep in no time.
