Off to a festival and literally have nothing to wear? Hold it right there. Before you start panic-buying all the sequin capes (seriously though, how many is too many?), we’re here to give you the low-down on the three hottest festival season trends for 2018, ready to take your field-day ‘fits from basic to Boomerang-ready. So whether you’re camping out for the weekend, hitting up a one-day fest or jetting off to party under the sun and starry skies, here are the looks you need to know about.
1. Bohemian Girl
Going all-out boho for festival season is nothing new but let it be known that SS18’s style selection is cooler and crisper than ever before. Prints are out and embellishments are in, with neon embroideries, swishy tassels and mirrored adornments adding all the wows to sun-bleached whites. Accessories come a little cleaner, with glam gold jewels and classic sunglasses making up the must-have extras.
2. Insta Glam
Want a festival ‘fit that is as fierce as you are? Stick to the statement-making styles that you know and love (a fringed jacket is totes an investment) and bring extra glam to your get-up with the accessories that were made to stand out in the main-stage crowd. Think high-gloss metals, sequins, tassels and bursts of bold colour, guaranteed to deliver all the Instagram likes.
3. Pretty Pastels
If you thought pastels were just for spring then think again. From lust-worthy lilacs and pinks to sugary shades of bubblegum blue, festivals are the perfect place for a sorbet supernova – and the best way to start is with a sweet-as sun dress. When it comes to the accessories, keep to the same palette or pick ‘n’ mix with clashing colours or, if you’re feeling extra, rainbow stripes – with this look, anything goes.
