How To Style 3 Festival Looks For Under £135

Sunday, 17 August 2014

For this weeks 'Little White Challenge', I was given £135 to spend on a festival look. As this is quite a lot of money to spend on an outfit for a festival, I thought I would do 3 looks to cover the entire festival; oh yes Aycan, you're really taking on a challenge. As I have already styled for Coachella, I have decide to go down the British festival look. Think rain, mud and wellies. When dressing for a festival, you've got to be practical as well as fashionable; probably more practical though.

I have chosen 3 necessities which is going to be worn with every outfit; sunglasses, a bumbag and wellies. The sunglasses from Miss Guided have a heart shaped frame, which I think is just fun for a festival, unless it's too hot, you really don't want heart shaped patches around your eyes...EEK! I think a bumbag is so practical for a festival despite its old man tourist connotation. I have chosen this from LYDC which does have gold studded detailing, making it more of a statement piece, and multiple pockets to organise all your festival bits. A British festival wouldn't be the same without a pair of wellies, so I have picked these by JUJU. If you don't already know, JUJU make the latest jelly shoes, so these wellies are made from 100% rubber, which is perfect muddy field attire. I always prefer ankle wellies instead of the knee high as those tend to go upto my thighs (short person problems), plus they will look adorable with a pair of lace trim socks of course.

DAY 1

For day 1, I have gone for a coral textured cap sleeve crop top from River Island paired with a waist tie shorts from New Look with a cute elephant print. Using basic crop tops allows you to mix and match between different looks. I have also included a denim sleeveless jacket from Topshop to add layers to the look. To bring a festival feel, I have added a floral arm band from Pretty Little Thing, which is something a little different to the usual floral head crown. This is a great day look, and if the weather is on your side, you can also pair this with a pair of sandals or flats. The total price of this look (including the JUJU wellies) has come to £59.99.

DAY 2

For day 2, I have gone with a boxy white sequin photo t-shirt from River Island and denim mom shorts from Toyshop. I love these shorts; they are a bright inky blue colour, unlike the traditional blue denims, and the mom fit is perfect for a festival. As the weather is unpredictable, I have included a festival mac in cherry from Boohoo. I love the oversized mac against the fitted pieces. As the mac is of a thin fabric, it can be easily folded up into your bag and is more for protection then for warmth so you won't get hot in those busy crowds. I have added a bandana printed headscarf from ASOS and a set of bright festival style bracelets from Oh My Love. The total price of this look has come to £34.

DAY 3

For day 3, I have gone with a printed smock dress from Toyshop. I absolutely love the fit of smock dresses! They're perfect for a festival as they have no restriction in fit and you can freely dance until your hearts content, and with the 'Happy' printed slogan, what other message is more appropriate for such occasion. I have also included the floral arm band (Pretty Little Things) to match with the floral print. This can also be worn with the denim sleeveless jacket or the mac. I intentionally chose the colour of the mac to be bright as it can be paired up with any of the other looks. The total price of this look (including the sunglasses and bumbag) has come to £38.99.

The 3 looks has come to £132.98, which goes to show with a little help from the summer sales, you're able to create relevant festival looks for the entire weekend. They can all be easily packed so you can look festival ready with a limited wardrobe. I have only been talking about fashion in this post, so make sure you don't forget your face paint, glow-sticks and wet-wipes!!

I'd love to see how you'd style for this occasion, so I challenge you to create the perfect festival look for a festival for £135. Make sure you comment below with your links.
