The season is nigh! Festivals are just over the tented horizon, and the line-up for your fave fest is to be announced imminently. What are you waiting for? If you haven’t got your field-dwelling look prepped yet, slip on a pair of our sandals and step to it!
Our round-up below features everything from essential accessories to standout items guaranteed to make you feel centre stage. Bestival – sorry, we mean ‘best of all’ –you can expect to buy into the biggest festival must-haves without dipping into your spending money. With prices starting from as little as €4 (seriously!) you can spend more on the experience itself, and less of your hard-earned pennies on the latest trends. So, let’s get this show on the road!
The striped maxi €9
The playful shorts €4
We cherish the chance to slip on our more playful outfit options, and we’ve a sneaking suspicion you do too. Lightweight shorts in the most playful prints will add colour, pattern and pizazz to the simplest T-shirts. Clash motifs for extra brownie points in the style department.
The playsuit €8
When you’re atop your pal’s shoulders, passionately proclaiming appreciation for ‘insert beloved band-name’, skirts and dresses can be a little tricky, shall we say? Eradicate potential mishaps altogether, with an all-in-one. Jumpsuits are great for extra coverage against cooler climes, but the perfect playsuit is ideal for the likes of Benicàssim and Coachella, where the weather guarantees sunshine.
The statement dress €7
Camping bags are no longer confined to drawstring duffels, or utilitarian holdalls. If you’re embarking upon a weekend jaunt, pack all your essentials in a roomy tote to nail that glamping vibe. And when you’re out and about, venturing the grounds, slip a little across body number on to keep your essentials safely close by, and ultimately chic. Bum-bags are another winner, allowing you to keep your hands free for selfie-snapping, and recording your favourite on-stage acts.
Finally, make sure your time-keeping skills are on point – you can't be missing must-see performances because you took too long queuing for a taco!
Maxi dresses are sartorial superheroes. Super easy to slip on, and their full-length silhouette works wonders to elongate and create the illusion of a taller stature. What’s not to love? A maxi is also ideal if you’re looking to cover up those pins – sun protection is essential, after all.
The printed maxi €12
The printed joggers €8
And if you're not down with shorts, you shouldn't have to forfeit the printed bottoms trend altogether: say hello to a pair of comfy joggers. You'll thank us when you're running like a champ in your sports luxe get-up, to get to another stage on time.
The evening playsuit €8
We know what you’re thinking: festivals are not black tie events. And maybe we’re being slightly optimistic about festival nightlife sophistication levels, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pack a little outfit change for evening plans! This playsuit is perfect for dressing up with a clutch and ballerina lace-ups. Alternatively, slip into a statement dress. If you're looking to tone down the glam factor, complete your look with a baseball cap and sneakers for a casual finish.
Before you relegate accessories to supporting act territory, you might want to consider a statement neckpiece. Nothing provides a better outlet to showcase your most eclectic accessories than summer’s line-up of outdoor music gigs. From beaded, artisan-inspired chokers, to dainty rose gold-tone necklaces, our range of jewellery is as varied as your musical taste – so there’s something for every accessory enthusiast.
