Festival fashion

Get sustainable festival chic with stylist, Kate Harrison...

Published on July 8th 2009.


Festival fashion

It’s raining, which must mean that the crazy summer days for the UK festival are upon us, leaving us with one of the most difficult fashion dilemmas of the year: How do you avoid your cool Cat Deeley look becoming a more dishevelled Courtney love? Follow my best buys for sustainable festival chic...

Weather. Who knows what it’s going to do, so my tip is go for worst case and rock the funky wellies this festival season. This gorgeous leopard print pair is £29.99 from funky wellington boots. You could even go all Alexa Chung and throw on a pair of knee high socks for extra comfort, denim shorts and you're off.

What better than to twin your wellies or gladiator sandals with a cute little sun dress. These are very festival friendly as they are easy to pack, easy to throw on and can be layered with leggings or a cardi as required. This sun dress is reduced to just £20 from www.asos.com . The emerald colour and colourful embroidery means you will definitely stand out from the crowd.

Hats are always a stylish and practical option for a festival. Keep the sun out off your eyes or the rain off your head with this cute straw boater in grey. It will match any outfit and at £20 from Topshop the price per wear will definitely stack up. Make sure you get your sunglasses just right, a Ray Ban style with this will look fab- check out H&M and Primark for some credit crunch friendly options.

Accessories are all important so if the hat isn’t for you why not try a headscarf or some boho inspired necklaces. This long coin chain is very Kate Moss and at £12 from Accessorise, you will even have change for a couple of ciders.

All you need now is your backstage pass, and if you follow the above , blagging your way into the VIP area has never been so easy, you might even get a shower. Enjoy.
