5 Styles To Get You In The Festival Mood
After a staggered return to the field last year, all of your favourite festivals are back in full swing this summer! With the granddaddy of all music festivals, Glastonbury, getting underway yesterday, we can confidently say that the new summer of love (and music and dancing and alcohol) is well and truly underway.
Now that’s all well and good, but the question still looms large: are you wardrobe-ready for the summer festivities? With all the excitement (and ticket-booking frustration) that’s generated at the start of the festival season, it’s easy to assume that you’ve probably already got a few appropriate outfits kicking about the wardrobe somewhere. Well, that might not be the case, particularly if you’ve gone on a bit of a festival hiatus over the last couple of years. This editorial is designed to get you back on track and straight back into the festival mood with a colourful collection of funky and fantastical styles from our latest edit.
Valentino Navy Blue Utopia World Print T-Shirt
Part of what makes music festivals so magical is the way in which they enable you to transport yourself to a whole other world, even if just for a day or two. Valentino’s Utopia World Print T-Shirt is a wonderful manifestation of that sentiment with graphics of fantastical, otherworldly beasts featured throughout. Get in the festival spirit this summer with this free-spirited style from a label that has proven throughout the seasons that they know exactly where to find the fantastic beasts…
Amiri Black & Peach Core Logo Trucker Hat
When you’re out partying and living your best festival life, there really is no escaping that unrelenting sunshine. And while the prospect of intense, uninterrupted sunshine may seem like an exciting prospect at first, it doesn’t come without its drawbacks. Protecting your head from the sun’s rays is an all-too-often overlooked necessity, but there’s no reason you can’t look and feel great while doing it. In steps Amiri’s Core Logo Trucker Hat to tick all the important boxes in that regard, with a meshed back panel to let your head and hair breathe and a chic, unobtrusive design that allows the piece to blend in seamlessly with whatever outfit you choose to rock.
Valentino Garavani Blue Lacquered VLogo Leather Crossbody Bag
A healthy amount of peacocking is not only permitted, but actively encouraged this festival season. Last week we explored the concept of this being the birth of the new ‘Summer of Love’ and if that notion has any plausibility, then the festival season is surely a cornerstone of that phenomenon. As such, self-expression through mediums such as colour is fundamental and that’s why we’ve highlighted this VLogo Leather Crossbody Bag from Valentino Garavani. Accessories are a great way to inject a splash of colour into your outfit, and the electric, neon blue palette of this featured piece is everything you need to zap your festival season into life.
Stone Island Shadow Project Pink Bermuda Shorts
We’re in no way ashamed to say that we’re crazy about colour this festival season and Stone Island Shadow Project’s Pink Bermuda Shorts definitely continue the trend. If you’re looking to strut your stuff with pride while jamming along to your favourite live artists, then you’ll need an outfit that can do the talking for you. And while shorts are often relegated to something of an afterthought in this regard, we’re encouraging you to buck the trend this summer with our featured style from Stone Island Shadow Project.
Balenciaga Triple S Dark Green & Black Trainers
If you’re going to be jumping and dancing in a field for potentially days on end, then you’re certainly going to want footwear that can keep up. Sturdy, robust shoes are a festival must-have considering the amount of work they’re going to be put through and Balenciaga’s Triple S Trainers are more than up to the task. Of course, this isn’t a hiking trip so functionality isn’t the only prerequisite for effective festival dressing. It’s arguably not even the most important. It’s paramount that your outfit looks as good as you feel, especially at a festival, and this pair will certainly keep you well ahead of the fashion field.
