The festival season is finally here, so what better time than now to talk about some of the top fashion trends? One of the great things about festival fashion is that it provides the perfect opportunity to show off your unique personal style. There is no need to worry about going too OTT, as there will always be someone that has pushed the boundaries that little bit further!
Top 3 Festival Fashion Trends 2014
1. Neon Boho - Think Aztec prints and colour pops, perfect for Glastonbury.
2. Neon Bloom - Statement florals and feminine cuts ideal for V Festival.
3. Tropical Beach - Make a style statement at Bestival by fusing bold prints and colours.
I decided to have a go at styling the Tropical Beach trend, with my statement piece being this stunning sheer tropical print skirt (I can't wait to wear it on holiday). Although I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t get far at a festival in those wedges, hence why this is a festival inspired outfit post!
It's also worth noting how festival fashion has evolved over the years; from bohemian style in the late sixties, to nineties grunge and indie pop in the naughties. Although trends change from one year to the next, you'll find that they are constantly being recycled and re-invented and that is something I personally find so interesting about fashion. Take a look at the screen shots below and be sure to visit New Look's interactive Festival Fashion Timeline to find out more about the trends.
