Its official- festival season is here! April’s, Coachella festival in the Colorado Desert signified the start of a long, hot summer and with Glastonbury kicking off at the end of this month, now is the time to begin that festival shopping spree!
I love the eclectic vibe and sense of freedom you can have and explore when it comes to being at a festival and I tend to mix old with new and love layering (it can get chilly!) with a huge salute to accessories – the perfect sunnies, a military cap and fabulous vintage silk scarf from one my favourite haunts!
Universal boho influences are still strong. Fringing, crochet, beading and embroidery are heavily present, denoting a more chilled-out, dishevelled vibe.
Prominent silhouettes include barely-there slip dresses, loose, textured layers, and the perennial crop top, but it’s the emergence of individual touches, which deviate from the standard festival uniform, that add a little quirky uniqueness.
One-off, vintage pieces are back in a big way, with intricate touches of embroidery and filigree necklaces adding elements of polish to the usually grungy atmosphere.
