The V Festival is like the UK’s version of Coachella. Because it’s possible to leave the campsite at night and stay in a hotel in town if you don’t want to camp, the fashion and beauty standards are so much higher.
This year is the 21st anniversary of V Festival so it’s the ideal time to look at some of the best outfits worn to V by the celebs over the years. If you’re planning on going to V or to Bestival in September, you’ll get some inspiration about what to wear. It’s always beneficial to plan your outfits in advance as you don’t want to get on site and panic. Keep everything as stress-free as possible by knowing in advance that you’ll look good and then you can start the party from the moment you arrive!
Our favourite V Festival outfits of all times are:
Beyonce looked incredible in a blue jumpsuit, looking every inch like the strong, powerful woman that she is. Who run the world? Girls! Well, Beyonce definitely does in a jumpsuit like that.
(2) Katy Perry
(3) Taylor Swift
Even before she hit the big time, when she was still in her country and western phase, Taylor looked stylish. The great thing about a fringe detail dress is that they shake when you move. Taylor’s dress is really similar to the V by Very fringe halterneck dress.
(4) Lily Allen
Leather and denim always go together and Lily is a shining example of that in her leather jacket and denim shorts. Both of those fabrics are super durable, which is important if you’re at a festival and plan to do a lot of partying!
(5) Rochelle Humes
(6) Pixie Lott
Pixie showed that you can still look pretty at a festival. A white dress is a great way to keep cool and can be worn with ankle boots or sandals, depending on the weather.
(7) Laura Whitmore
Layering is essential at festivals and Laura does it superbly in denim shorts and a floaty beige jacket. She often dresses to show off her legs, which is understandable. If you’re proud of a body part then you should dress to show it off.
(8) Millie Mackintosh
Millie often has a rock chick style and she stuck to her favourite look at V in black skinny jeans and a black t-shirt. You’ll look good and feel better if you stick to what suits you – don’t feel like you have to compromise just because you’re going somewhere new. Be yourself and you’ll ooze attitude.
I love this look as Foxes’ black trousers and crop top make it seem as if she’s going on a night out and then you see that she’s wearing black trainers so she’s really comfortable. The hat is awesome as it hides festival hair while making you look cool and interesting.
(10) Rita Ora
Sometimes you can really have fun with fashion at a festival as you’re in a place where not that many people know you. You can test it out on a festival crowd and then wear it again when you get home if it works. If not, no bother. I think Rita’s wild red outfit looks amazing though and the red lipstick tops it off perfectly.
