Radio 1’s Big Weekend: Festival Fashion

Radio 1 picked the perfect weekend to hold the first UK festival of the year – The Big Weekend. The weather in Hull – the UK City Of Culture 2017 – was scorching hot making it a mini version of Coachella. However, rather than boho chic outfits, the majority of festival goers opted for bright clothes with some even going for neon. Us Brits have our own style when it comes to festival fashion!

The Isle Of Wight Festival, Glastonbury, Wireless and V will be here before we know it now that the first festival has taken place. Hopefully, they’ll be equally sunny and bright so that we can wear some similarly bold outfits because just looking at clothes like this cheers us up! However, even if there is rain we can always pack a colourful or printed rain mac, right? The more it clashes the better.

If you need some motivation to dress a bit brighter this season, have a look at what these fabulous five female celebs wore at Radio 1’s Big Weekend:

Katy Perry

With her stunning short cropped hair, Katy made sure her clothes were just as cool as her haircut. In a silver dress and a silver jacket, Katy dazzled with her outfit as well as her performance. She was on fire and she knew it and looking down at her outfit would give her more confidence to perform with attitude. Wearing a bold outfit can make us feel braver.

Zara Larsson

You can never go wrong with denim at a festival and Zara looked fresh and pretty in her denim jacket and white t-shirt – a classic combination. Notice that the denim jacket is embroidered with some colourful fabric? Embroidery is a great way to experiment with colour and lots of celebs are wearing the trend right now. It just makes everything look prettier!


Lorde looked absolutely stunning in a pink top and yellow trousers. This is such a summery outfit and Lorde looks fresh and fabulous in it. The wide leg trousers would keep her cool when she’s on stage and shows you don’t need to compromise on anything when it’s hot. You can wear as much colour as you want as long as your outfit is loose enough

Lana Del Ray

Lana channeled a vintage 1960s look with her printed mini dress and headband made out of the same material. Her multicolour mini dress has real character and she’s another great example of how you can retain your style even when the weather heats up. A mini dress not only looks lovely and feminine but keeps you cool as your legs are out and getting some air.

Little Mix

Little Mix were the best examples of dressing up brightly with outfits in various shades of neon green. This takes hi-vis to another level! It shows that black and green go really well together and just adds an extra element of fun to the event. If you can’t take risks at a festival, when can you?

Have you got any festival fun planned this year?
