MUST-HAVE FESTIVAL TRENDS THIS SUMMER
We’ve been living for Coachella content this week, and that can only mean one thing… It’s festival season! It’s time to get ticket booking (if you haven’t already) and outfit planning, and we’ve just launched the ULTIMATE festival collection for you to shop!
Need some inspo? We’ve rounded up our fave trends that we spotted at Coachella, and are MUST-HAVES for your festival wardrobe this summer.
DISTRESSED: LADDERS & FRAYING
Our number one pick for must-have festival trends this summer is distressing. We’re talking laddering, frayed hems and ripped jeans! We saw this trend everywhere at Coachella and it’s fair to say we’re OBSESSED.
We'd pair this trend with some swimwear as it's a little see-through - it's perfect to layer over a bikini. It would also go perfectly with denim too! Pair a frayed jumper with some distressed denim shorts, cowboy boots & a fedora hat for the ultimate western festival outfit.
GLAM: SEQUINS & DIAMANTES
This trend goes without saying… Festivals are the IDEAL place to wear sequins, diamantes and beads. You won’t be out of place at a festival covered in glitter! We saw some gorgeous glittery hair and makeup trends at Coachella, like face gems and tinsel hair highlights, as well as plenty of sequin tops, glittery bikini tops and diamante fishnet styles!
This is a great trend to pair back with denim if you don't want to go full on sparkle. Pair a diamante bikini top with some denim shorts and knee-high boots, or a sequin crop top with some wide leg jeans. If a head-to-toe glitzy outfit is your festival vibe, then we say go for it!
WESTERN VIBES: FRINGE & COWBOY BOOTS
The Western trend is a must-wear for any festival, and there was no shortage of fringe, or cowboy boots and hats at Coachella! These styles are festival staples and we spot them every year. They’re investment pieces if you ask us…
Cowboy boots will go with ANY festival outfit - maxi dresses, shorts, jeans, you can't go wrong! As for fringe details, we're loving fringe hems on tops, fringe dresses and even fringe boots! That's two trends in one! As for a cowboy hat? It's the perfect finishing touch to any western festival outfit.
Our fave western pieces: Black Chainmail Tassel Crop Top, Brown Shaggy Cardigan, Black Embroidered Western Boots, White Crochet Fringe Bikini Cover, White Fringe Western Boots, Black Oversized Fringe Detail Shirt
FESTIVAL STAPLES: DENIM
You can’t go wrong wearing denim for many things, but we think it’s the perfect addition to any festival outfit. A denim jacket is the perfect layer for keeping warm in cooler evenings, whilst denim shorts are a staple piece in our festival wardrobes. Bad weather forecast on your festival date? Baggy jeans won't let you down!
Make your ‘fit stand out in other ways by incorporating other trends. Pair your laid back denim with bright colours and some sparkle, like a diamante bikini top. You can even wear head-to-toe denim - opt for a playsuit or brave double denim in shorts and jacket co-ord!
CO-ORDS: CROCHET & MESH
We just LOVE how effortless wearing a co-ord is. Your whole outfit is picked out ready to go without having to piece any outfits together! And trust us when we say this is an ideal scenario when you’re hungover and getting ready for day 2 of partying…
There were two stand out co-ord trends at Coachella: crochet and mesh. We'd recommend pairing with some swimwear as both trends are kinda see-through, but you're guaranteed to look super cool showing some skin!
Our fave crochet & mesh co-ords: Leopard Fishtail Maxi Skirt & Leopard Triangle Bikini Set, Mocha Crochet Crop Top & Tie-Waist Trousers, Black Lazer Cut Bardot Crop Top & Raw Edge Cut Out Trouser, Brown Mesh 3 Piece Bikini And Ruffle Trouser Set
BOHO VIBES: MAXI DRESSES
Maxi dresses are another great, effortless festival outfit. We saw lots of flowy, boho style maxis at Coachella, as well as some super cute crochet numbers. Paired with some cowboy boots and a hat with a denim jacket on top you’ve got a whole outfit already!
Or how about a satin number? Throw a studded western belt around the waist to go with your boots and you've got a super cool festival outfit that you can re-wear to the next wedding you go to! Talk about good value...
RAVE VIBES: STAND-OUT PRINTS
Another easy way to stand out in the festival crowds is by wearing a killer print. Animal print is a classic at any festival, but at Coachella this year, zebra print was the stand out winner for us! It goes so well with western accessories and denim too. Trends on trends!
We were also loving abstract prints at Coachella. This was a HUGE festival trend last year, and it seems it’s having a resurgence this summer too! If you're not into glitz and glam or western styles and like more of a cool, rave vibe then this is the print for you. We even saw some bright animal prints that we LOVED!
CASUAL: CARGOS & VEST TOPS
For that more casual, carefree festival look we think cargo pants are the perfect choice! Cargo is a huge trend right now, and paired with a corset top you’re guaranteed to look super cool AND be comfy while doing it! Racer neck vests were everywhere at Coachella too! Why not use one to pair back bright or sparkly bottoms?
