7 Fresh Festival Threads
Coachella has been and gone and we’re just as broken-hearted as you, babes. But, don’t get all nostalgic just yet, the whole summer lies ahead! And with it, a slew of festivals screaming out for best-dressed honeys. Got your field garms ready? Us neither! What we DO have is a visual shopping list, right here. Grab a ticket and join the queue…
Sunglasses €2.50, bandana €2, choker (5pk) €5
These 7 outfits are basically E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G. Infused with a bold hit of grunge-meets-American-dreamer, they nail it on all fronts: practical, super-easy, on-point, and – as ever – prices that will entertain you more than your fave headliner. Go on, work out how many clothes you can buy for the price of a single festival ticket…(answer: a brand new wardrobe).
Fluted sleeve dress €14, backpack €12
Sheer cami dress €16
Nothing says festival-FROW royalty quite like bandanas, raw-hem denim, and distressed T-shirts. Natch, we have them all in abundance, and our babein’ model is werking it.
This season also has some hot new talent and we are ALL about it. From lace-up detailing on sleeves and hems, to corsetry placement in the most unexpected places (hello corset sweatshirt 👀), tied-up trims are where it’s at.
Slogan top €16, lilac sweater €12
In other news, sheer and fluid silhouettes are no longer just for the twee wedding guest. Team pretty-in-pink translucent cami-dresses with bold black sweaters and some bossin' boots to hit the nail on the tough-chic head.
Or what about a mesh T-shirt? The 90s throw back looks banging with shredded denim and as many chokers as you can comfortably wear. Slip-on some stacked-sole shoes and you'll be doing much more than 1-2 steppin' this season.
Necklace €10, sunglasses €3
Sunglasses €2.50, choker (5pk) €5, bumbag €8
Finally, any gal worth her weight in Primark goodies will tell you: SS17 all about deconstructed silhouettes. From dishevelled necklines to extreme acid washes and shredded effects to actual holes, don’t expect the ‘rents to get these distressed princess vibes.
Corset detail sweatshirt €12
Hold up! Don’t be dashing off just yet. We need to talk accessories, and what a summer line-up we have. Mirrored sunnies take the number one spot for most-wanted; any colour is cool with us, as long as they shield your peepers.
And, obvs, you wouldn’t be festival-ready if you weren’t covered in chokers. Stack them, clash them, wrap them around your wrists; whatever you want. Just. Get. Some. ASAP.
Corset dress €12, choker €5
Pink lace-up sleeve jumper €12, shorts €13
Missing something? Damn straight you are: your bag, bae. Aint nobody got time for handbags on the field. Instead we’re all about functional backpacks with fashion finishes or – the newest retro kid on the block – bumbags. Yep, these bad boys are no longer the reserve of tourists in Disneyland, the humble bumbag has gone well fashion. Pick yours up in cracked metallic finishes to tick off all the trends at once: look atchoo, girl! 💁
Mesh T-shirt €8, frayed denim shorts €13
