Festivals are definitely places to show off your playful side, experimenting with both fashion and beauty. I for one cannot wait to style up my festival looks, be it with amazing pieces such as these high waisted shorts. I love the fact they are high waisted, (you can get the crop top duo to work) but my fav feature has to be the studs! These add an edgy appeal to them, something I love to flaunt
Pairing them with the fringe top, I have a little obsession with fringe this season, its very hippie chic, ticking a the festival criteria box. Your there to have fun, so 'Just do it'! This catchphrase couldn't be more fitting with the festival spirits. To further the playful side of this look I have teamed it with the denim studded collar. Collars are a huge item trending this season, and set to last into the next; Hello investment buy. Whilst wearing above the fringe top, I also think it would look fab in the evening on top of the 'cool is the rule' jumper. 
And finally footwear. No girl is festival fit without a pair of stand out wellies. I love these ones from hunter, with the added strong details of studs, I think it pulls in the detailing of the shorts and collar.


Finishing touches? Throw on some funky sunglasses, clip in those hair pieces, strap on your bumbag, layer up those bracelets, add some amazing eyelashes and work those lips with a neon lip -note the cross co-ordinating of neon pinks whilst careful clashing to add extra funky to the look.

FESTIVAL TIPS

NUMBER ONE:  Shorts are definitely a must! For one, you do not have to worry about accidental flashing (or someone of so very kindly lifting your skirt -you are at a festival), but also you have the ease of a simple pull down when it comes to those portaloos. You want to limit the amount of time spend in these as much as possible, self explanatory as to why -N.B take plenty of anti bacterial and spare loo roll!!


NUMBER TWO:  Do not forget your pac-a-panco!! Festivals are known for their temperamental weather. Do not get caught short in a down pour, leaving your freezing for the rest of the day. Just shove this in your bag, or attach to your bumbag to ensure the weather won't literally rain on your parade.


NUMBER THREE:  Stay on your regard with your belonging. Festivals maybe located on a field however, street-smart rules still appeal. A bumbag ensures that you can keep your eye on your money and phone at all times. The added bonus; you can jump around with your hands in the air without having the annoying bag strap slipping scenario!


NUMBER FOUR:  Pack plenty of loo roll and anti bacterial in your bag. It may be provided but think of the size of crowds, it soon runs out.


NUMBER FIVE:  Baby wipes are your new best friend. Easier way for a quick freshen up.


NUMBER SIX:  Dry Shampoo Dry Shampoo Dry Shampoo!! -easiest way to keep that mop with a freshly washed feeling.



With all this in mind you will definitely be fulfilling the role of a Festival Fashionista!
