How to wear this summer’s festival trends

We show you how to translate the major SS17 fashion trends for a foolproof festival wardrobe...

Summer 2017 has brought us some gorgeous looks to try, but they’re not all festival-appropriate. A thigh-slit cold-shoulder dress, for example, doesn’t exactly scream ‘Glastonbury regular’, while furry pool sliders are about as impractical as footwear gets when you’re going to be trudging through the great British countryside for days on end.

There are a handful of trends, however, that are easily adaptable for the annual pilgrimage to your musical – or foodie – mecca. All it takes is a few key buys and styling tricks to reach Kate Moss levels of stylishness.

Here’s how to rock the SS17 trends at your next festival…

1. Yellow

This colour trend started on the red carpet, and while a Beauty And The Beast-style gown won’t go down well in front of the Pyramid Stage, a sunny playsuit is very Glasto-friendly.

2. Statement sleeves

How to make a style statement without looking like a festival fashion victim? Take a puff-sleeve top and pair it with ripped jeans and battered boots.

3. Gingham

Since you’re going to be dining in a variety of fields for three days straight, why not embrace the picnic blanket look? Team a gingham mini dress or skirt with sturdy boots (or, if you have to, wellies).

4. Waist belts

Give a white beachy dress an SS17 update with the addition of a wide waist belt and achieve ‘Victoria’s Secret model at Coachella’ cool. Just make sure you choose a dress that’s cinched at the waist, or you’ll end up with lots of bunched up fabric.
