Glastonbury starts tomorrow and we are green with festival envy because we are not going!
For me Glastonbury when I went was an excuse to wear anything I wanted and loved no matter how OTT and fit right in! Festival fashion has been massive this summer and we have already covered it in various recent posts but we feel like Glastonbury needs addressing in true royal style... After all it's the queen of all festivals!
After Coachella and Topshop SS launching a special Festival collection I felt this years festival style is more dressed up, embellished, washed out and tonal with all white dressing playing a big part. It's all about buying into those statement festival pieces; the fringe kimono, washed ripped denim, feather headdresses and embellishment. With ethnic influence always playing a huge part in festival attire I always look to Vanessa Hudgens and Kate Bosworth for true festival style.
My look is tonal, embellished and all in the details. I stuck to a black, gold, cream and brown colour palette and felt the look was a bit more dressed up and grown up which I think is perfect for the season and for Glastonbury.
Let's talk details... The skirt I found on ASOS Marketplace and have I been looking for this kind of ethnic elephant print after seeing it at Coachella. Good old vintage finds always pull through and mean there is no chance of anyone having the same. I love that it's a maxi skirt as it's so easy to throw on and wear at festivals! Mink Pink have brought out a dress in a similar print recently If you enjoy!
The top was a present and a very good one- fringing, beading and velvet all together what more can I ask for. The accessories brought everything together I chose a long fringed crochet bag which I still cant get over it being £6! It's a perfect festival bag and adds texture and interest to your festival look. My big floppy hat made a statement whilst still being subtle and tonal. I always love it with round sunnies! I wore my elephant earrings which I thought add a little interest behind my hair and match the skirt perfectly. I always love to wear ethnic head accessories and bindis at festivals so ran with the gold theme!
Whatever your style- the festival season is the way to show it off! Especially when this year things like OTT floral crowns, feather headdresses and Topshop angel wings came into play! Are you heading to Glastonbury this week? If so what's packed in your rucksack?
Please pack me and Amy! x
