Festival Fashion: Accessories You Need In Your Collection RIGHT

  • This year, festival accessories are on another level!

    Forget crochet tops and frayed shorts. Festival style this year is all about the finishing touches.

    Here is the low-down on the small things that will make a BIG difference to your festival looks this year.

    Sunglasses

    Shades are a must if you're going to spend all day dancing around in the sun!

    However, this year stay away from the typical aviator/wayfarer styles. It’s all about the mirror lens! These colourful sunglasses were the latest to hit the catwalk and are perfect for creating a retro festival look. For added protection, go for a polarized lens such as mine from Blueprint.

    Temp Tattoos

     

     

    Yes temp tatts are back! But forget about the rubbish ones back in the 90s that stayed on for about an hour and generally looked totally naff.

    The temp tatts of today are chic, metallic and durable! Celebs such as Rihanna and Beyonce are big fans of metallic temp tatts. Whether you just want a little motif on your wrist or go all out with a large statement piece, a metallic temp tatt will make you shine through the crowd. Y

    or can buy your fave celeb style tatts at Bohemian Jewellery Tats.

    Faux Septum Ring

     

    The latest piercing trend is hands down the septum ring and its taking over the fashion world fast!

    Thanks to the likes of FKA Twigs, Rihanna and numerous instagram posts, this rebellious temporary piercing is the perfect way show your dangerous side this summer. Love it or loathe it, it's the only face accessory you need this festival season (I’m wearing the Sun Tribal Faux Septum Ring from Galisfly.

    Boots

     

    Lets face it, wellington boots even when paired with our most carefully planned festival outfit always manage to kill those cool girl vibes we were hoping for.

    Luckily, wellies aren’t the only sensible shoes you can wear. For a more trendy look, add a pair of sturdy ankle boots such as these Dr Martens. They will still keep your feet nice and dry and safe from trampling.

    If you prefer something a little softer and colourful, why not try a pair of Palladium Boots. They come is so many great pastel colours and they'll definitely brighten up your outfit!

    Bags

    There are only two types of bags really appropriate for festivals – backpacks and bumbags. There is no reason why your bag has to be boring. Choose a statement graphic with one of the many awesome designs from Spiral.
