Hey there, let’s get festive!
Dust off your fedora and pull out your cutoffs: festival season is upon us again! Here is your go-guide on this year’s best music-lover looks.
It’s a mistake you only make once. Too much makeup at the start of the day, ending up in a sweaty, panda-eyes mess by the time the headliner kicks off. This time round, go less is more. Look for foundation, mascara, liner and lip products that are going to last the distance. Words that’ll clue you into their longevity including longwear, waterproof, 24-hour and (lip) stain.
Or take a leaf out of our book, and put in your pre-event tanning prepwork first. You’ll need less makeup, and be photo-ready right through until the end.
This year’s celeb-packed Coachella saw all the big names go for two trends. Firstly, for festival-fanatics like Kath Bosworth, Diane Kruger and Alessandra Ambrosio, it was all about minimalist boho. Floaty, comfortable dresses paired with easy to stomp around in all day ankle boots.
On the flip side, Katy Perry and Dree Hemingway schooled the rest of the festival-goers how crop-top chic is done. If you were ever itching to give this trend a try, there’s no place like Falls Festival to get your crop on.
The dancefloor/moshpit/festival tent is no place for glamorous brushed out waves. Take notes from the SS14 runways at shows like Diesel and Peter Som. Opt for a textured topknot, embellish up a simple pony with floral adornments, or try your hand at braiding, that’s going to last the distance.
Mark our words: eccentric sunglasses are the new reflector shades. Hit the grass running with some eye-catching embellished sunglasses to finish off your festival chic. And while you are at it, this season’s bag is all about size. Downsizing, that is. Compact, square, over the shoulder bags are perfect for hitting the dance floor – they’re hands-free and won’t kill your back with unnecessary handbag items we all manage to justify carrying with us for “beauty emergencies.”
