Festival season has finally arrived.
It’s time to make up for lost time and dance the day (and night) away! Whether you’re jetting off to Hideout Festival or grooving in a field at Parklife, now you’ve got your tickets all you need to do is decide on what you’re going to wear – although that’s easier said than done, right?
What we love most about festivals is that no one will judges you. Whether you’re rocking up dressed to the high heavens in sequins, going full bo-ho in your flowery crown or bossing an oversized graphic t-shirt with wellies, it’s all about feeling fabulous and having a good time. Good vibes only guys!
Simple Be, Ombre Sequin Shift Dress, £21.50
All that glitters
Not a festival season goes by when there’s isn’t glitter on the style radar. Shine bright like a diamond head to toe with these gorgeous pieces. It’s not every day that you can wear glitter, so embrace the sequins and sparkle like the gem you are! Oo la la.

Boho mini dresses
Comfort is key at a festival. Get the boho-chic look with these stunning mini dresses, which look perfect when paired with a denim jacket and chunky shoes. And the best part?

Chunky dancing shoes
Because you’ll be on your feet all day, it’s extra important to keep them comfy! If you’re camping for a few nights, it’s always best to bring one pair of shoes that’ll go with all of your outfits. Added bonus – there’ll be more room in your case for wine! Chunky shoes are bang on trend this year and are perfect for dancing in.
