Now that Barcelona is over I am focusing on the next of this years adventures... Bestival! There is nowhere I feel more at home than at a festival sporting lots of colour and embellishment- so sorry if this week in style is a bit eclectic and mental but I have gone festival crazy since Barcelona! The product around for festivals at the moment is wonderful and it's been the strongest year for festival fashion after Coachella and Topshop launching their Kate Bosworth festival collection. I look to Vanessa Hudgens for outfit inspiration where everything ethnic is the rule! Bindis, floral crowns, angel wings and over the top accessories are playing a big influence on festival season 13 so I have done a separate collage just for those extra little details that will make you stand out from the crowd! Enjoy x
1. Oh My Love Vintage Sunflower Skirt & Mesh Crop Top
I enjoy this whole outfit! The skirt is a reclaimed vintage skirt made with sunflower material and the mesh crop top makes it look more grungy! Team this with black chunky boots a fedora hat, sunnies and an oversized leather for a perfect day festival look.
2. Mink Pink Rainbow Lace Top & Skirt
I love a little co-ord and this would look great worn with a bindi, bumbag, chunky boots and oversized parka jacket. I love the rainbow colours and think its a cute little ensemble to stand out from the crowd
3. Oh My Love Lace Maxi Jacket
Things like this are perfect festival attire especially to wear over shorts and a top and still look cool! For day to night layer over a long fur gilet to keep warm but so the lace sleeves still are on show. Kimonos and cover ups like this are must have English festival items!
4. ASOS Floral Jumpsuit
Total flower power! This stunning jumpsuit is the ultimate festival piece and is so sixties! Team with a oversized parka or kimono, big round sunnies and floral headband.
5. ASOS co-ord
The print of this co-ord is perfect for festivals. It comes in a matching jacket, shorts or skirt so pick and choose as you prefer! I love the jacket and shorts and can imagine a little crochet top underneath with layers of ethnic jewellery and head wear. The fluid cut rather than structured co-ord makes is easy to dress down or up. Wear denim or leather gilet over the jacket to layer up.
6. ASOS Cape Top
The image of this top persuaded me instantly to purchase it! I love the simplicity of the top and the shape is amazing! So easy to style up with black hat, back boots and vintage denim shorts. The top is such a statement as it is and is so easy to throw on and look festival ready!
7. ASOS Embellished Gilet
An expensive but investment piece that is guaranteed to turn heads. A gilet Vanessa Hudgens would be jealous of and a perfect way to make a statement at Bestival! Throw over a baggy vest and denim shorts for the ultimate festival look.
8. ASOS Eye Body & Ombré shorts
I love the colours in the body and shorts and think this is a great night time festival look! Throw on a black kimono, boots and bindi for a rainbow ethnic look!
9. Oh My Love Kimono
Stunning print on this new kimono and at £35 it looks a lot more expensive! Wear exactly like the photo with Bralet, shorts and ethnic jewellery for a hippy festival chic look.
Now lets talk accessories.....
1. Ebay Floral Head Crown
Floral head crowns are everywhere this year and now available on eBay and in cheap high street stores like Primark there is no excuse not to rock one! I love this one on eBay with the diamanté forehead detailing! Perfect for Bestival!
2. EBay Feather Wings
Since Kate Bosworth Festival collection Angel Wings are a must! grab yours on eBay for around £5 in any colour you wish!
3. eBay Floral Sunglasses
I brought these for Barcelona and I love them! They are all different colours so you never get 2 pairs the same and at £2.50 what a perfect companion for festivals! Flower power!
4. River Island Festival Head Dress
My feather headdress collection is extremely large and my newest one from River Island is my favourite! River Island are great for festival accessories so head into store for ones like this brown one!
5. eBay Ethnic Headband
Headbands like this look great with ethnic festival attire and are really cheap! They add something special to your outfit and for around £6 are cheap!
6. eBay Ethnic Jewellery
Use sites like EBay and Etsy to find vintage one off pieces that no one has and remember to layer up with necklaces long and short to create interest.
