This season, two worlds collide as street style blends with a bohemian spirit in an utterly modern mix. Your wardrobe follows you from the city to the desert, field or forest, and takes on a new direction inspired by the iconic look and feel of festivals.
WHAT TO WEAR
What you wear is your calling card to the world. It can give someone a glimpse of your uniqueness from afar, before they get to know you and your amazing personality. Don’t change your style—just take some of your favourite clothes and put a festival spin on them with jewellery.
If you’re going to a festival this year, here are three hot trends to inspire you.
TREND 1: PRINTS
Large-scale motifs, patterns, statements and flowers are covering every type of fabric and garment from classic white sleeveless tees (80's style, cropped, open-sided or dresses) as well as body-con or pyjama-style two pieces, ethereal floaty dresses and camouflage parkas.
With these looks, you can either embellish the statement with lots of necklaces, like chokers and chains with pendants, and stacked bracelets, or let it do the talking and enhance it with one or two key pieces: drop earrings, a necklace, rings or bracelets.
Leather, denim, crochet, T-shirts, shimmer and silks come together spectacularly. Earthy colours, bold contrasts or neutral combinations, the looks we love express individuality because they have been curated on a personal level. Shorts are short and co-ords are statement-making with cropped tops.
If this trend is for you, try mixing different metals to highlight the tones in your outfit, adding a choker and statement earrings or bringing pops of colour with vivid stones on necklace pendants and ring stacks.
Fringing on leather jackets, fraying on denim shorts, ruffles on asymmetrical maxi dresses, lingerie-inspired slips and classic tunics, and tassels hanging from floral bralettes. There are many embellishments to inspire you. The common denominator of all these fashion trimmings is that they move: sway, dangle, float.
Accentuate this with jewellery. Tassel jewellery is stunning and features on Best Dressed lists everywhere. Add some of our colourful new fabric tassel dangles to bracelets and necklaces and watch them move with you.
It seems that you can take the girl out of the city, but you can’t take street style out of the girl, especially at 2018's festivals. Have fun exploring more of your style this season—and bringing it to life in fresh new ways.
