Everywhere I've looked recently, it's been ALL about Glasto! I love a good music festival... There's nothing better than live music. It's so cool to see which acts are headlining each year, but also the festival style trends! And so begins, what I would like to call "Festival Week" on Rock On Holly! Festivals seem to be getting such hype nowadays, that the boho, hippy, quirky style is hitting the high street - and not just for campers! So over my next few posts I want to put together some festival style outfits for inspo.
Todays look is pure GLASTO vibin'! If you're heading to a festival this Summer, let me talk you through what I think are the essentials of a good #OOTD
1. Layers: You just never know what the weather's going to be like at a festival, so my advice would be to layer up! Even if it's a hot day and you want to get your legs out, an oversized shirt is great for throwing on when it gets cool at night. During the day you can tie it round your waist for extra cool points ;-)
2. A Hat: Yup, come rain or shine, by day 3 of a festival you're probably reaching the limit on how much Dry Shampoo is gonna help you... So unless you can scrape that greasy mop into a top knot, a hat is a necessity!! Straw Hats, Fedoras, trilbys are all standard choices. For something a little different, why not try a bucket hat?!
3. Bag it up! A decent bag for your bits of make up, phone and money is definitely required. But you don't want to be lugging around your best Michael Kors tote while Tinie Tempah's yelling for you to get low. I'd recommend keeping your hands free with a bum bag or cross body bag.
4. Comfy Shoes: You're going to be out an about, walking, dancing, raving and more for about 72 hours non stop!! So you're feed are going to need to be able to keep up. Wellies are all good and well. But if the weather's good, go for some colourful pumps! The ones I'm wearing in this post are Vans from Spartoo are super comfy. They come in loads of funky colours and styles - fab for festival fun.
