My essential item has to be one that is seen every year at festivals such as V-Festival, Bestival and Glastonbury, and that is colourful crochet; Seen on the likes of Millie Mackintosh and Vanessa Hudgens! I got this amazing top from Missguided and I knew it was perfect straight away. It has a boho shape to it, with the large flared sleeve and the cropped waist line, meaning it looks great with high waist shorts or skirts. I opted for a patch work look skirt from Boohoo, that perhaps isn’t appropriate for crowd surfing or shoulder dancing, but it sure looks cute! Worn with sheer black tights means you can still dance about freely and not have to worry too much about bare legs or getting chilly when the sun sets.
This Kimono is from the H&M Coachella range, which has the most amazing pieces fit for festivals (hence the name)! It’s fairly plain but I just loved the small details and fringing, adding another boho edge to the outfit. It’s an amazing thing to take with you to throw on when it gets a bit cold and the shape looks relaxed and cool against the tight fitted skirt.
A necessity for any festival is the right accessories; firstly a good pair of ankle boots that you can wear all weekend and that won’t hurt your feet. Wellies are good for wet muddy fields or you can opt for a pair like these, from Missguided with tassels to match your outfit. A small backpack, bum bag or cross body bag is essential as you don’t want to hold a bag in your hands while dancing, drinking, eating etc. I chose this H&M black backpack versatile for other things, and I added a cute tassel charm in rose gold and silver, also from H&M just to liven it up a bit.
