What to wear...Rocking out at Festivals

Festival Fashion

For music lovers, summer means one thing; festivals!  But it can be tricky to pull off that 'I just threw this on but look effortlessly cool' style when you're sleeping in a tent, packing light and battling the ever-changeable weather.  But festivals also give you a chance to try some experimental looks that you wouldn't normally risk.  (where else is it considered normal to wear flowers in your hair and paint stars round your eyes?!)  So I've come up with a few festival fashion guidelines.
Denim cut-offs are a festival staple, but why not give them a new season twist with an on-trend ombre dye or embellishments like studs.  Try pairing these with a fringed tee or tye-dye; these are both trends that are perfect for festivals, but that can seem a little daunting to embrace anywhere else! 
No matter how sunny it is, the temperature will drop at night, so an oversized sweater like this star-print one, is an important addition to your festival wardrobe.   Welly boots are also essential to combat the mud!
To keep your hands free when you're enjoying the music, either a cross-body bag or a backpack is the easiest option for your handbag.  A navajo print or colour pop will nail the festival vibe. 
Don't forget your sunnies and the look will be complete!
