FESTIVAL DRESSING 101
#Inspo on loop
We’ll officially be entering festival season with Coachella kicking off tomorrow, and as much as we are all for the music, any ardent festival-goer knows that her style needs to be up-to-date, cool and should have all eyes on her ‘cos if one doesn’t get featured on street style blogs for their festival look, what’s even the point?
GLITTER, LOTS OF IT
Yup, everything from glitter lips to glitter lids are going to be mad hot there. However our dearies, you want to exercise restraint, and not go too overboard with the whole glitter makeup trend #TheGlitterati
GLOW ‘EM AWAY
And, blow them away you will with that super glowy skin thanks to super-luminiscent lotion, highlighters and more – take your pick and apply it all over or just on your face. We promise it’s going to make you radiate and turn a few heads, even though Ariana Grande might be performing #ShinyHappyFaces
Do we even need to say it? Floral will of course be everywhere, right from hippi-esque maxi dresses to more preppy ones that end above the knee and jumpsuits. Accessorise well (we’d add loopy earrings if we were you), and wear them with sneakers or tie-up flats #Flower Power
ITSY BITSY TEENY WEENY SHORTS
Did you get the memo yet? The shorter, the hotter is the trend du jour. You can take your pick from ripped denim high-waist ones, 60s-inspired drawstrings, on-trend cycling shorts, or our favourite – something floral. Pair ‘em with tops with clashing prints or just add a solid-hued racerback and a layered gold necklace or oversized hoops in the same colour.
FEDORAS, VISORS & MORE
Our least favourite trend from the 90s – the bucket hat is going to be seen everywhere (ugh), and will be accompanied by your standard fedoras and visors of course! Wear ‘em with just anything, but they’ll do shorts more justice, than they will a dress.
SHOES FOR DAYS
Classic festival novice mistake 101 is to wear shoes that will kill their feet before the headlining act is even over. Always wear shoes that are super comfortable, and if sneakers and boots are not your thing, go for sandals that will let your feet breathe and wear ‘em with just bout anythign, and don’t forget them socks underneath #KeepOnWalking
