Fresh Festival Fashion Coming to a Field Near You

With summer just around the corner its time to start planning (and hoping) for those long sunny days and, the festivals that come with them. Festival styling has become an anomaly as such, an independent style in it's own right with many eager women seeking out the perfect carefree bohemian look.

This look is actually anything but carefree. The perfect festival outfit is often planned well in advance to ensure each boho note is hit and, for that reason, its time to get planning!

Music festival styling has become an essential part of the overall experience for many festival-ers. But much inspiration seems to stem from barely there denim shorts and 90's-esque neon bum bags so we're here to provide an alternative. 

If you are looking for a more casual or demure approach to your festival styling this summer, here is some delicious inspo to kick start your outfit.

These inspiration boards serve to show you a variation outside of shorts that still look beautifully boho. By avoiding short hemlines & opting for a maxi dress, flares or maxi skirt, you can feel comfortable all day without the worry of a blush-inducing wardrobe malfunction. 

Flares are set to be huge this summer & are such a wearable look- Keep with the 70's trend by adding a floppy fedora, kimono and fringed bucket bag or, let the flares be the focal point of the look by pairing them with a classic Breton striped tee, necklace and cross body bag.

Grey dress, €105, 'Regret nothing' tee, €66 Breton striped tee, €67 Black kimono, €51 Flares, €345 Suede boots, €205 Fringed bucket bag, €92 Layered necklace, €10 Leather look belt, €29 Fedora, €38 Clockwise from top left: Grey dress, €105,, Layered necklace, €10, Fedora, €38, Black kimono, €51, Fringed bucket bag, €92, Breton striped tee, €67, Suede boots, €205, 'Regret nothing' tee, €66, Leather look belt, €29, Flares, €345

Team a simple maxi dress with a low-slung leather belt and ankle boots for a look that Kate Moss would be proud of or, layer it with a classic black kimono and accessories for a crisp look that'll keep your covered but super-stylish.

If the maxi skirt is the one that caught your eye, then maybe consider either two of the following; grey tee, leather jacket and statement necklace for the ultimate under-stated cool or make a statement by accessorising with a matador hat and arm cuff for a look that will be hard to miss.

Finish the look off with a structured fedora and a classic style of sunnies to keep you looking instagram-ready until the early hours.

Are you planning to go to any festivals this summer? Do you have a festi-form (festival uniform, consider that copyrighted)? And do any of these pieces catch your eye?
