Coachella is the first festival of the year and it set a high standard for every other festival coming up, didn’t it? There were tons of celebs walking round, there were big name acts on stage and the weather was so good, which meant that everyone could dress for fashion instead of comfort. Now I know you can’t guarantee the weather will be as good at the festival you’re going to – especially if you’re going to one in the UK – but the key to looking good at any festival is layering. At Coachella they only needed one layer but no matter what festival you’re heading to you can copy the base layer and add a jacket and boots to it if needs be.
Looking at the photos of everyone having a good time made me so excited about this summer of live music coming up! And it also gave me a few ideas about for my festival packing. My top three ideas are:
(1) Bold and bright like Beyonce and Solange Knowles
A festival is a celebration of all things summery so I really like how Beyonce and Solange express their bright, happy moods through their clothes. For printed dresses like Mrs Carter check out the Definitions check blossom print dress or the Resort strappy dress, and for a fiery colour like Solange, I love the Definitions crepe tunic dress.
(2) Denim shorts like Kendall Jenner and Vanessa Hudgens
I think denim shorts are essential for a festival because they’re good if its sunny (as you get a tan) and good if its rainy (as nobody wants wet trousers sticking to their legs). I like the Love Label denim shorts at Very.
(3) A leather jacket like Katy Perry and Poppy Delevigne
No matter how sunny it was in the day, there’s normally going to be a chill at night. A leather jacket works with hotpants (a la Poppy Delevigne) or over a dress (a la chart-topper Katy Perry). It’s versatile and it makes you look cooler than a pack-a-mac – what’s not to like? Poppy is actually wearing a jacket you can get from Very – the Superdy tassel leather biker jacket. Nice!
Are you going to a festival this year? Start planning the outfits now because the time will be here before you know it.
