“This first style is a key festival look that is really easy to create”, says womenswear buyer Sophie. “The floral trend has been huge for years, but try something new and adventourous with these Pieces jeggings and team it with a graphic tee“.
“We have accessorised this festival look with a fab Firetrap printed scarf, Quayeyewear sunnies and Diesel Wellies“, explains accessories buyer Katie. “This bright and bold look is one of my faves – perfect for any UK festival come rain or shine!”
“I love this bohemian look”, says Sophie. “This Roxy dress is definitely more of a Coachella/Benicassim look, unless you can bear the English weather!”
“We kept this look simple, with the all important oversized hat from Pieces and cool pink gradient sunglasses by Converse“, says Katie. “We have also used this bright Diesel belt to break up the Kaftan with a pop of colour”.
For Katie the look is all about clashing prints, textures and colours: “The bangle set, scarf and belt are fun and perfect for a cool European festival like Primavera Sound (the best festival I have ever been to!)”
“This Numph skirt is gorgeous!” says Sophie. “Really boho hippy and great for a festival look”.
Katie says: ”Finish off this glam festival look with oversized sunnies by Jeepers Peepers and a Firetrap sunhat. The stylish chunky bangles (as before) and long necklace add to this stunning yet simple outfit”.
“Hearts on the jumper and heart-shaped sunnies but it doesn’t look overbearing!” says Soph. Katie agrees that it’s a great festival look: “We have a great range of amazing colours and prints at Surfdome. The belt by French Connection is also supercute”.
“I wanted to show how creating a boho look can be so easy – it’s all about fringing and comfortable, oversized garments”, explains Sophie.
“Neon is always going to be hot for any festival season – team with other acid colours to get this look spot on. Think Exit festival and Global Gathering”.
