I’m just about recovering from my stint at Glastonbury Festival 2017, and IT. DID. NOT. disappoint.
If you’re looking for what essentials you need to pack for a summer festival, I wrote a post before I left, you can read it here. But this is my first style blog and, I’ve got to be honest, I’m not a huge fashionista.
But at Glasto, anything goes.It’s the one place where you can be totally out there – a wig, leotard and sparkly leggings? No problem. This year’s trend was all glitter.
And it went everywhere: your hair, your face, your body. Glitter goes best when you go big, and decorate with gems and paints. (FYI, it also went over my clothes, my friends, my mattress, my tent… and yes, I’m still getting it all off.)
I packed some amazing sets from Dust & Dance, a really great glitter brand who works with wellbeing charity Young Minds. Here was the result:
And we had a little help from the amazing girls at the Gypsy Shrine Glitter Station in the EE Garden…
They also did this hair …
For scruffy hair, I used the hair chalks from my Pic’n’Mix Festival Kit to cover up the grease!
Sequins were also a winner, as well as classic crop tops, bodies, playsuits, oversized shirts and frayed high-waisted Levi shorts.
We (luckily) had quite a sunny festival so I stocked up on Factor 50, a cap (which was inevitably stolen) and some funky sunglasses (good for hiding the hangover).
Fortunately, my wellies got to see a bit of the festival but most people just stuck to trainers or walking boots.
To carry all my goodies in, I had these beautiful handmade pouches from Harvey-Smith Leather, who also make stunning phone cases, bags and notebooks.
And naturally, my Berghaus backpack provided ample room for all the outfit changes. Top tip: camp with friends you can swap clothes with!
Finally, for accessories: we had headbands, hats, rings, leather chokers and… some fairy lights to stand out in a crowd.
Are you going to any festivals this year? Would love to hear your style staples for summer festivals x
