Well... Summer is here and we’ve already seen some great music festivals, but there are still lots to come. So, if you’re hitting up Global gathering, TribFest, V Festival, Reading/Leeds festival, Creamfields, Bestival or any other summer music festivals this year then check out this style guide to festival fashion for guys and girls in 2011.
There’s a lot to think about when preparing and packing for festivals. So we thought we’d help you out with a few of the most important practical and fashion items for your festival packing!
The Top 5 practical/essential items
1. Tent (this needs to be waterproof - especially for UK festivals!!)
2. Sleeping bag (this also could do with being waterproof, just in case your tent turns out to not be waterproof!)
3. Toilet roll (you know that by lunch time on the first day there will be no toilet roll in the porta-loos so take your own!)
4. Hand gel/sanitizer (see toilet roll note!)
5. A camera to capture the best moments of the festival - you never know you might be able to sneak into V.I.P and get some snaps with the celebs!
The Top 5 girls fashion items
Whether you have Hunter or Joules, or a funky patterned pair, Wellies are a festival essential.
Here at FYFO we have an extensive range of Hunter Wellies for men, women and children.
Our Women’s Hunter Wellies start at £61.99, so why not take a look at our range.
Many of the celeb festival goers are seen wearing Hunter Wellies, from Kate Moss to Girls Aloud’s Nicola Roberts and Kelly Osborne
Think big, bold, colourful and quirky. Sunglasses are a must have for festivals if not for use in the sunny weather, then to hide your tired eyes in the last few days of the festival! There are a huge range of sunglasses available online and in the shops for reasonable prices and you can find something to suit your style. Even the celebs are loving them from bright colours to funky shapes, there is something for everyone.
Isla Fisher has been seen wearing these large bright blue sunnies.
3. Tribal print
Tribal print is a massive trend this year and can easily be worn at festivals.
Here at FYFO we have a huge range of tribal print clothes perfect for a range of different occasions from beach wear to nights out and of course, festivals!! The bright, bold, summery prints are perfect teamed with a headband and statement sunglasses.
Whether you wear them in your hair, on a headband, or you wear floral print clothes, floral designs are not only a summer fashion must have, but they are also a great festival fashion item.
Why not use the floral trend in all areas of your outfit. For example, this Irregular Choice Abigails party shoulder bag is a great festival bag, great for storing your essentials like your camera, phone, purse, hand sanitiser and your festival guide.
5. Backpacks and bags
So you have all of your outfits ready and you are prepared to party at the festival... Don’t let your look be ruined before you even arrive by your baggage being so heavy and difficult to carry that you look dishevelled before the festival even begins. You are going to need to carry all of your belongings across no doubt, the whole campsite, so why not make it easy for yourself and get a wheely bag so that you can look effortless in transporting your stuff across the fields.
