Festival Fashion

We felt the loss of Glastonbury this year but Festival Season is well under way and the sun is shining (for now)!

So, whilst most of us deliberate between packing flip flops or wellies, lets look back for inspiration at the Coachella Festival in California earlier this year.

African Ethnics

Summer 2018





For festival wear next summer look out for the African ethnic print trend that is coming through to compliment the usual array of rainbows and tie and dyes.

Festivals are wonderful places to spot truly original style as well as the flaunters of the absurd. The high street and online retailers are catching on fast to this opportunity to sell outfits that stand out from the crowd and also to help the less creative. This is our favourite look from Summer 2017 Festival season taken at the Downs Festival in Bristol on a balmy summer’s evening in August. This lovely lady was napping in the sun, she has not passed out.

…The Catwalk for the festival season

Forget the music, everyone knows the line up, what we all care about is the fashion at Coachella, the most glamorous festival of the year. The LA based festival sets the trends for the season ahead and this year, prints of all kinds were taking center stage.

With palm tree backdrops, sun kissed selfies and a playground for the celebrity A listers, all eyes have been firmly scanning what was being worn by these beauties. Prints galore…Mix and match, coordinating, conversationals, floral, patchwork, prints of every era imaginable graced this Californian valley.

Looking at the catwalk, the style is very much mirrored with the Roberto Calvalli and the Anna Sui ready to wear 2017 collections.

Throwing together different types of print and clashing colours work beautifully in this collection and really embody a bohemian, free natured style.

The Anna Sui ready to wear collection is all about layering. Coordinating feminine floral pieces sitting along side slogan prints and prints underneath layers of embroidery, the more the better this season.

Festival Style 2015



2015 was certainly the year of the festival. Fashionistas run free with sequins, rainbows and glitter. Here we take a look at some of our favourite styles from the biggest and best of the festivals the world has to offer.

Secret Garden Party

The theme of this year’s SGP, set in idyllic fields in Cambridge, was ‘childlike things’. Talking robots, building blocks, mud wrestling and dancing power rangers surrounded the fabulously dressed festival-goers, who were powering through the 22 hour rain shower!

Glastonbury 2015

The biggest and best festival in the UK (if not everywhere!), Glastonbury doesn’t really need an introduction. Go-to outfits for festivals include printed sets and the classic Levi shorts, as shown by these festival lovers, and don’t forget your trusty bum bag!

Who could forget Coachella? Kicking off the festival season back in April, supermodels and superstars flock to Indio to enjoy the first big party of the summer in the Californian heat. We love the dreamy, relaxed bohemian vibe of Coachella.

Body art was also a popular trend at Coachella and other festivals this year. Temporary tattoos are the perfect fashion statement, without the pain!
