Festival season is all about dancing in the outdoors all day long. When dressing for a festival, the goal is to look as visually euphoric as possible. For any type of folk festival, think busy patterned shirts, floral maxi dresses, denim shorts, and loose fitting clothes. Think “1960s American Hippie" and this is the subculture that epitomises Folk/Indie Festivals. So, to organise the perfect outfit for an amazing festival experience, you need to get your wardrobe filled with anything that conveys that boho, indie, 'flower child' vibe which is perfect for springtime festival season.
This summer, achieve the right folk festival look!
A popular fashion item, and an absolute staple for women attending any festival, is a pair of cut-off denim shorts - the perfect option for an outdoor music festival. Pair them with a printed t-shirt or cropped tank, a fringe vest, and some sandals, cute ankle boots or wellies, and you will stay cool, look stylish and have the ideal ensemble for grooving to the music. If you prefer dresses, then maxi dresses are breezy and make sitting on the ground idyllic. They are also comfy and light enough for optimal movement. If you decide to wear a little dress to your folk festival, sure, they are a blast, but don't forget safety shorts! Try a playsuit for a carefree time. For the guys, a pair of cut-off denim shorts and a bold style t-shirt or button up is always the way to go. A pair of trainers or sneakers is a must, and a pair of sunglasses is always a classic addition to your wardrobe, as well as a hat or cap to keep you looking sharp.
Look the part at any Indie or Folk music festival!
This festival season, channel your inner hippie and listen to your favourite artists in the sunshine wearing feathers, face-paint and bright colours. Floral prints are a must for any indie and folk festival as this pattern conveys everything that is summery. It is also very 1960s-chic and is a versatile print that lends itself to numerous items - backpacks, hats, shorts, shirts, leggings and bikinis. Make sure you have a crossbody bag or a satchel which are the hands-free way to go at any music fete! Peace and Love!!
