Festival season is upon us once again! And the question what to wear becomes even more intense than ever… Everyone wants to stand out from the crowd and be as instagrammable as possible. Don’t fret because Oxfam Batley Online will give you the best tips on how to prepare for the festival!
1. Start early. As you’ve probably heard before preparation is key. Well the same is true of fashion – you don’t want to go to into shopping frenzy at the last minute. Few months before the festival, look for inspiration on Instagram, Pinterest & other apps. Note any trends that are going on – and plan accordingly. The Oxfam Festival Shop’s social is a great place to start! Follow them on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

2. Be comfortable. We can’t stress this one enough. If you’re at a festival for days, the last thing you want is feeling out of your place with uncomfortable clothing. That said, it’s not advisable to go to a festival in high – heels unless you want your feet to be covered in blisters and trampled down by thousands of festival goers. Wellies are our top choice to ensure a fun filled festival.
3. Be creative. Festival fashion is a great way to expresses yourself, it’s all about freedom, fun & creativity. Try to reflect those qualities into your outfit choices. Shimmery glitter, floaty dresses, distressed denim, crop tops, band tees & braids are all great festival pieces. Liven up your look with crazy colours, and don’t forget to accessorize!
4. Most of all have fun! Festival time is the time to experiment with your looks, and discover new trends. So mix and match your outfits, be brave and party like there’s no tomorrow!
