Festival Chic - Some Ideas

If you are heading to a festival this year, you may want to emulate some of the recent styles sported by celebrities like Sienna, Kate or our latest obsession, Alexa Chung.

  • Skirts replace jeans - It is all about showing off your legs, even if the festival site is so muddy you end up with wet soil on your pins. Wear frilly skirts in an all-black number a la Sienna Miller(pictured above, left). Add a chunky belt and an old top and you are ready to go.
  • Sun-glasses - Absolutely essential. You may go for any of the current trends, with colourful frames, or go vintage: bring out old ray-bans, aviators, or the biggest lenses you can find. Anything goes!
  • Shoes are boots - Wellies, wellies, wellies, and for that Jimmy Choo is hot right now with their Hunter wellington, currently only available after joining a long waiting list.
  • Make-up - practically null, unless you wear a rock-chick red lipstick, glamorous and a subtle statement to pair with your sunglasses.
