CREATING A FESTIVAL OUTFIT ON A LOW BUDGET
- Lose the glittery rain mac you brought especially; because the sun has decided to finally join you. You took it off, hung it over a bin and completely forgot about it.
- Accidentally drip burger sauce down your new Topshop top whilst being unknowingly distracted by the group of lads from Manchester with their abs and V-lines on show for all to see.
- Leave your brand new denim shorts in Mr-Forgot-His-Name’s tent whilst making the shameful dash back to your own tent at sunrise.
- Take your clothes off and do a strip tease (unsensible answer).
- Buy an official festival merchandise t-shirt on Day 1 to last you the whole weekend (sensible answer).
The UK weather is slowly improving so hopefully by the time big name festivals such as Reading and V roll around; it will be hot enough to wear bralets. I only have one myself but AdoreMe is a great brand to look at if you’re looking for some pretty (and also very sexy) and affordable bralets.
AdoreMe have a wonderful belief; that all women are beautiful and should be able to wear what they want with confidence and without judgement. I don’t particularly like my stomach but an option like the Elvinia Bralette is perfect for me as it has extra material to cover up more of my skin so I can feel a little more confident walking around in public!
I am loving wearing bracelets at the moment and bought quite a few when I was holidaying in Greece. Ankle bracelets are a lovely decoration; especially with statement platform shoes or trainers. Colourful beaded bracelets are perfect because they will look really summery and eye-catching next to your festival wristbands; which are actually all manufactured from the same company, did you know?
Shoe choice for a festival can be tricky. Will it be muddy? Likely. So, you won’t want to wear your brand new Nikes you got last weekend. And if the sun decides to show up by 3pm? You’ll have to suffer in sweaty and skin hugging wellington boots but I’m sure you won’t care by the time you’ve spent £30 on 3 beers and you’re having the time of your life singing along to Jess Glynne and her ‘Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself’ track. Don’t worry, I’m guilty of that too.
