Festival fashion trends

With Coachella just behind us it’s officially festival season. Whether you’re going to Body and Soul or Electric Picnic, festival trends can be a tricky minefield to navigate, with previous years being criticised for cultural appropriation by sporting Native American headdresses and bindis, but also for spawning the stereotypical festi-hun look – wellies and a flower-crown.

Here are a few trends for the festival season 2016.

Glitter Roots

You can now add interest to the standard festival space bun look by applying glitter to your parting. What better way to cover up greasy roots, eh?


Dungarees and boiler suits are having a bit of a fashion moment. The variety of long and cropped styles makes them weather versatile and while navigating the Portaloo in a jumpsuit might be slightly tricky, the ease of styling an all-in-one makes them worthwhile.


H&M’s Coachella line’s stand out and sell out piece was a bright crochet dress, which is sure to inspire many copy-cat pieces.

Statement Bomber Jacket

One of this season’s biggest trends is the statement bomber jacket. Customise your own plain bomber with patches or transfers for a unique look or hunt down a trophy bomber from Zara, Topshop or 9 Crows.
