I would just like to say a huge thank you Pretty Little Thing for collaborating with me on this blog post!
Team, I have never been to a festival.
I’ll repeat that, never, ever. Not even a one day in a field with my friends type of thing.
However, I already have two lined up for this year so I really wanted to write about some outfit ideas and expectations for them as a complete beginner!
In my mind, festivals are loud, fun and muddy. So, to prepare for this scenario (I HATE MUD) I want to be as comfortable and free as I can possibly be. I’m a very visual dancer, I need my hands to fist pump that bass line! I envision a lot of jumping around, screaming and dad dance moves. Thus, outfit one fully encapsulates this.
I like the pink paint speck effect of this T-Shirt Dress and the belt gives it such a cool edge. I also fell in love with these Pretty Little Thing boots the MOMENT I saw them and knew they would be travelling with me to any/every festival this year! (I’ve already styled them on my Instagram as I couldn’t wait to show them off!)
I feel like this is a very Alexa Chung circa 2008 Glastonbury look and I live for how effortlessly cool it looks. Plus, it will take me around two minutes to get dressed which obviously means more time for having fun!
Whilst outfit one is great contender for a quick and easy festival vibe, I also wanted to style something a little more dressy which Pretty Little Thing have exceeded themselves with. After all, You never know when Matty Healy from The 1975 will invite you to the VIP area and offer you the world…
This dress has ticked all of my dress requirement boxes.
Not Too Short
Paired with a leather jacket (we all know how bad the English weather can be), lace up boots/wellies and a few choice accessories I feel like it is perfect for a very Glastonbury/Reading Festival vibe. I could see Fearne Cotton or Taylor Swift wearing something like this too.
I also wore it on a recent night out and loved how flirty the hemline was. It had a nice amount of swish to it which meant my Dad dance moves could be completely unleashed.
Also, which outfit will you be emulating at your next festival?
