Stacey’s festival chic tips

The tickets are booked and the tent is packed. All you need now is the perfect festival wardrobe: on trend, adaptable, and comfortable. What else is more perfect for a festival than bohemian chic? I come armed with this summer’s music festival essentials.

Firstly, I advise you to head straight over to ASOS and check out their shirred waist border print dress.

This mini dress is dainty and girlie yet the cut out back gives it an inch of sex appeal. It’s young and flirty, and the shirred waist has the same flattering effect as a waist belt, which allows the bottom of the dress to flare out beautifully. It’s perfect for hot summer days, but can easily be adapted with tights and a cardigan if the weather takes a turn for the worse. At £30, the detail is brilliant and it can be dressed up or down.

This summer the easy way to spice up an ordinary outfit is a waistcoat. Staying at ASOS, they have a gorgeous floral waistcoat for £24.50. It has an adorable folk feel about it and will transform a tank and denim combo into a fashion masterpiece. The material flows down diagonally from the back and is an effortless way to stand out at the summer festivals. If it turns chilly, just stick a long sleeved tee or baggy shirt underneath!

Over at Topshop, I’m in love with their blue and white floral shorts. They hark back to the forties and are a gorgeous shape and length. They ooze the vintage feel that is so prevalent at festivals, and make real use of the current print trend. Just tuck in a vest top or a tee and you’ll look a treat at £32!

If you’ve maxed out on your festival ticket, locate a trendy boy mate and borrow his checked shirt. Wear it with a simple tank or logo tee, and team with skinnies or mini shorts.

As for accessories there is only one thing you need: a Bando. They finish any outfit perfectly and give you instant hippy chic. It’s an easy way to have great hair without trying. Accessorize have a great range, and my favourites are their wooden bead bando, at £6, or large red flower bando, at £10.
