It’s festival season! It’s been a long, long time since I went to a music festival, because quite frankly, I’d rather be on the stage than frolicking in the mud. However, camping and boozing aside, I’m obsessed with festival fashion. Thanks to rise of Instagram and photo ready festivals like Coachella, I feel like people have really upped their games when it comes to festival style in recent years. However, because of this, I think it can be quite overwhelming when it comes to navigating comfort and style for a long day in the sun (or rain!) and you might be feeling a little stuck in the mud when it comes to choosing your outfits!
Fortunately, if you’re lacking inspiration or perhaps you don’t want go full out glitter and feathers, I got you. PrettyLittleThing have kindly sent me a few items from their festival shop and I’ve put together three outfits to get you inspired for festival season. However, if, like me, you won’t be attending any festivals this year, these looks are totally everyday appropriate, too. Remember – you can shop everything I’m wearing via the widgets at the bottom of each outfit!

I’ve always had a thing about bold print shirts, so when I clocked this stunning oversized 80s shirt (c/o PrettyLittleThing), I knew I had to have it. It’s the perfect festival throwover if you prefer to keep your arms covered, whether for confidence, cultural reasons or a sensitivity to the sun. On this occasion, I’ve styled it with cut off denim shorts, a black ribbed cami and chunky white trainers for an easy to wear but eye catching look. However, I think it would also work wonderfully as a beach cover-up, and later in the year, it’ll look great with jeans or worn over a mini dress for an added layer of protection from the cold. This time, however, I’ve finished off the outfit with some bold and colourful sunglasses (c/o PrettyLittleThing) to complement the shirt. If you’re looking for something a little different when it comes to festival fashion, then this is the one for you!

CAMO & YELLOW
Bardot tops aren’t going out of style any time soon, and I adore the bows on the sleeves of this adorable mustard yellow crop top (c/o PrettyLittleThing). It’s a more feminine and girly option than the printed shirt, and mustard can be an incredibly flattering colour if bold prints scare you. I’ve toughened it up a bit by pairing it with a camo print high waist denim skirt (c/o PrettyLittleThing) and chunky lace up boots for a more military inspired look. Once again, I’ve paired it with the orange sunglasses for a pop of colour which plays off the mustard yellow of the top. Swap out the chunky boots for sliders, and this outfit can easily be swapped for a summer holiday. Similarly, the bardot top would look great with jeans and a jacket in September and the skirt is an incredibly versatile pick if you’re looking to make the most of your purchases. Team it with a tee in the summer or a jumper in the autumn.

Finally, if you’re looking to make a statement, this ‘BAD HABITS’ T-shirt dress (c/o PrettyLittleThing) is for you. It’s comfortable and stylish in equal measures, and it has all the glitter you could want for a festival look. If the weather is looking a bit nippy, throw a distressed denim jacket (c/o PrettyLittleThing) over the dress. I’m keeping my toes toasty in my trusty biker boots again, and I’ve worn all of the chunky chains because the glitter on the dress just isn’t enough sparkle for me! Seeing as this look lacks the colour of the shirt and the bardot top, I’m wearing it with a bold lip to match the sunnies once again. If you value comfort and efficacy, then this easy to throw on dress is the one for you. After the festival, wear it with a leather jacket and trainers for a city slick look. It’s perhaps not as versatile as the other outfits, but for a bargain £15, you’re sure to get your wear out of it quickly.
