WHAT FESTIVAL STYLE TRIBE ARE YOU?
With Coachella marking the beginning of the festival season all the way back in April to Bestival being only a few short weeks away, we are officially amidst a marathon of sunny weekends spent in fields/deserts, full of music and photo opportunities And with that comes the inevitable dilemma of what to wear, right? Long gone are the days where festivals revolved around what artists were playing – nowadays it’s focused on those insta worthy outfits that are going to get you the most likes when you check in on social media (well, once you get signal that is!).
Whilst boho was once a ‘go to’, times have changed and different aesthetics have been making a welcome appearance on the festival scene – basically if you haven’t already, this is your reminder to ditch the flower crown. Whether you’re into sassy streetwear or you’re a mainstream mega babe, we have the four looks to ensure you take centre stage this summer!
If you’re trying to find this style tribe, you’ll find them in the most Instagram-able areas of the festival… they’re the ultimate cool-girls of the festival scene. They’re not afraid to clash a little, after all, it’s all about standing out from the crowd – right? Their approach to festival style is fierce and a fashion forward one, so of course they will be wearing coveted pieces, that tick all this season’s most favoured trends and looking super effortless whilst doing so.
This girl gang have taken a modern approach to ‘boho’ and it is giving us life – we mean, obviously, their festival style icon is Vanessa Hudgens and they probably overuse the butterfly emoji, but who cares when they look this chic. They stylishly dance around the festival scene in psychedelic prints and floaty fabrics – finishing their looks off with some oversized sunnies and an updated eco-friendly version of the tassel bag (sustainability is everything huns).
These girls live by the saying ‘go hard or go home’ and for good reason too. They are definitely not crowd pleasers and their goal is to make a serious statement with their sassy style - that is somewhat easy on the eye considering the fluoro pallet and tantalising textures. There is no such thing as ‘too much’ with this girl gang so don’t be afraid to over accessorise with a slogan bumbag and flatforms!
Nature is quite possibly their least favourite thing ever, but it would be social suicide to miss out on the biggest events of the summer, right? So, the key to being a part of this style tribe is to keep the aesthetic of your look as clean as possible and well put together. Think trendy two pieces and some killer snake skin boots for a perfectly pretty look – not forgetting those ombre aviator sunnies for that #SELFIE!
