Festival Fashion How To

Festival Fashion Ada’s Attic Lookbook
Festivals aren’t just about the music anymore they are also a fashion show. Where everyone tries to show how cool, laid back and fashionable (without trying) they are. The key to getting the enviable festival fashion look is to not try too hard. At the end of the day you will be sleeping and getting ready in a tent unless your glamping and missing out on the fun. When I think festival I think fun, hippy and just chilling out! So I pack, denim shorts, oversized knits, mini dresses, trainers and funny T-Shirt, things that look good creased and aren’t to fancy. What ever look you decide to rock make sure you have as much fun as possible! You only live once!! =D

Embrace The 80’s Sports Jacket

They are shiny, bold, brash and in your face, they usually feature a mix of clashing colours in a questionable shiny fabric. They don’t keep us warm or cool but they are handy for keeping the wind at bay. They have the power to make people smile and others to wretch in disgust, yes you got it I am talking about the 80’s Sports Jacket.

No other item of clothing brings such a vivid image to my mind as the 80’s sports jacket, and I am quite happy to see that they are making a comeback. I personally love their bright colours and wind breaking ability, I love that I smile every time I see my reflection whilst wearing one and laughing at others people reactions too. I think they sum up the 80’s perfectly… Big, Bold and Colourful.

Festival Fashion

With summer in the air and the hum on lawn mowers everywhere I can almost smell the summers festivals. There is nothing better than standing in a field and watching your fav DJ’S and bands play your fav tunes! Love it! There are soooo many great festivals on as well all over Europe were really spoilt. Here are my favs and some budget outfits, who want to spend a fortune on an outfit anyway =).

1 week of Sun and awesome music in a stunning location and if that wasn’t enough the tickets only cost £99 FOR THE WHOLE EVENT!! BARGAIN!! Not surprisingly then that they have all sold out.
For a effortlessly cool laid back festival like this I’d keep clothing low key, denim shorts, bikinis, cute over-sized tees or a dropped armhole if you can find one.

An electronic festival which has day events which is focused on looking for new talent and a night event which is all about established acts, and how electronic music interacts and works with other genres.
I went a few years ago and saw Blondie, The Verve and Kings of Leon, and amazing festival which is getting more and more popular.
