Festival Fashion: Hottest Trends This Festival Season
With Forbidden Fruit just gone and Body and Soul around the corner, festival fashion is on everybody’s mind. The stakes are rising with trends such as flared trousers and fringing making a regular appearance on our Instagram newsfeed.
Festivals give us a chance to explore trends we might not be brave enough to try in everyday life so make the most of the opportunity! Here are some of this season’s hottest festival fashion trends.
The Tennis Skirt
For those who want to take advantage of the festival season to flash some skin, the tennis skirt is quickly becoming a festival favourite for fashionistas and celebrities. Take a break from your denim shorts and opt for the preppy tennis skirt instead. American Apparel have many different styles in stock. Various other high street stores also have some great options!
The Rain Mac
Banking on dry sunny weather when planning your festival outfit in Ireland is risky business. Luckily there are some really on trend rain macs in our high street stores which can add to any festival outfit and keep you dry throughout the day. Metallic rain macs are all in and can be found in many high street stores like this one from Topshop.
Body art is really coming to the forefront of festival fashion this season from temporary tattoos and henna to body glitter and gems. Get the look without the long term commitment this season and pick up these festival gems from River Island or temporary tattoos from Penneys.
A fashionable hat is a festival staple especially for day two or three when your hair might not be looking quite as fabulous and fresh as it did on day one. They also protect your hair from drizzling showers throughout the day. From the fedora to the classic snapback, the high street has you covered. These options are from H&M and ZARA.
Brighten up your look this festival season by dip dying your hair. Pastel shades are really on trend at the moment when it comes to dip dye and can be easily achieved in the comfort of your own home. Pick up a bottle of Bleach London hair dye in boots for only €6.99. Add some sparkle by sprinkling hair glitter down your parting.
Shades are a festival essential to protect your eyes from the sun. They are also a go to for the days when your eye makeup hasn’t gone to plan, which is inevitable when living out of a tent. Big chunky frames are definitely in this season and can be found in River Island, Topshop, ZARA and Penneys.
The Right Bag
The perfect bag is a festival necessity in order to keep your precious possessions safe such as your phone and purse. Make sure your bag has a good zip so your things are extra secure. There are a number of on trend options in the high street this season from fringed satchels to studded bum bags. Have a look at these options from River Island and ZARA.
