These are the three things I keep in mind when planning a festival outfit.
- Comfort; Now it doesn’t have to be as comfortable as those disgusting old track pants and t-shirt that we all know and love but it has to be fairly comfortable as you will be wearing it all day. I also need to feel comfortable in wearing it, because if I am not sure if it looks good or not, I’m going to be self conscious all day.
- Functionality; Now you’re clearing not going to be wearing stilettos, but in terms of shoe choices I think these are the questions to ask. How easy is it to lose them off my feet in a mosh pit? Can I walk/dance/run/fall over all day in them without complaining to everyone around me? Are they going to get completely ruined/be unsalvageable? I think always pick something sturdy, comfortable and completely killer in style. Functionality in terms of clothing takes me straight to boob tubes or anything strapless. I’m not going to mess about, I think it’s the stupidest idea ever to wear anything completely strapless at a festival. You’ll be jumping, running and messing about and that just makes it way to easy to show things you don’t want to show. Unless you do want to show them, and then that’s fine, you do you.
- Experiment; Festivals give you that chance to really have fun with prints, cuts and colours. Go bold, do something a little bit different. Push your boundaries. This year I want to play more with prints as I generally stick to plain, one colour garments.
