Festival season is upon us, I’m beyond sleeping in tents and drinking warm cider at 7am, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to join in on the Festival dressing spirit. Luckily for The Strokes last week, the weather held out but as us brits know this isn’t always the case, so I’ve put together a few ideas for the best case scenario vs the worst case scenario. Here’s hoping you get the first kind!
The dream scenario: blistering sunshine.
Work a palette of denim, tobacco with a hint of mustard for a fresh, ‘Chloe girl’ look. The Warehouse bag looks so much more expensive than its £35 pricetag!
1. Cream western cape, £28, Warehouse
2. Straw fedora, £9.99, New Look
3. Mirrored tortoiseshell sunglasses, £40, Le Specs at Net A Porter
4. V-neck peasant blouse, £24.99, H&M
5. Denim A-Line skirt, £19.99, New Look
6. Suede crossbody bag, £35, Warehouse
7. Gold-plated tassel earrings, £12, Accessorize
8. Brown lace-up sandals, £26, Topshop
9. White denim shorts, £19.99, H&M
The not ideal scenario: heavy rain and a lot of mud (but you’ll have a great time anyway). Invest in a printed bomber to bring your breton and jeans look festival-ready.
1. Breton top, £14.90, Uniqlo
2. Parka, £140, J Crew
3. Leather bucket bag, £236, Manu Atelier at Boticca
4. Cotton print bomber jacket, £89, Boden
5. Sunglasses, £12, Accessorize
6. Boyfriend jeans, £199.50 in the sale, Current/Elliott at Net A Porter
7. Jewelled bracelet, £19, Z for Accessorize
8. Wellies, £55, Butterfly Twists (these actually can be folded in your luggage to save space)
And the ultimate chic festival piece? I’m anticipating the collaboration between Petit Bateau and K Way, which launches mid August – both practical and beautiful – I’m on the waiting list…
