I have picked another two band t-shirts to style. If you haven't seen the first, read it here.


festival inspired band t-shirt fashion outfit flat lay from the high street

This is my favourite look out of all 4. It's a feminine take on the festival look and just a perfect style for summer. The t-shirt has been designed and custom-made by Mike Dignam. He is a singer/songwriter who wanted a new take on traditional merchandise and hand tie-dyed each of the t-shirts so they are all unique. Check out his online store here and make sure you listen to his music as he is amazing! I have paired it with these high-waisted stretch denim shorts from New Look with a ditsy floral print. When it comes to floral prints, I like them either oversized or ditsy, but ditsy always makes for a delicate look. This bag from Topshop is a little messenger box bag with a gold clasp detail. I love this bag, it's soo cute and pretty and I wish it came in every colour. The bag does come with a longer shoulder strap but I have chosen to use the handle instead. The shoes from River Island are a flatform with a peep-toe and cut out detail on the sides. I have chosen to style these with little blue socks. Some might say peep-toe and socks, no way, but just take my word for it and try it.

festival inspired accessories from the high street

I wanted the accessories to reflect the free, festival vibe from the outfit, and by using a floral crown with it's delicate and beautiful trail, it gives it a real bohemian, free-spirited feel. The round framed sunglasses have a real vintage look to it, perfect for those summer days. Another product from Mike Dignam are these beaded bracelets and festival wristbands. The bracelets are also made by Mike, a man of many talents, and are customised with his song titles. I have added this long chained cupcake necklace and oversized flower ring to continue with the summer influence. If my outfit is of a light palette, I like to bring out a pop of colour with my nail paints. (L-R Diamond Glitter, Yellow, Block Orange, Spring Green and Cyan Blue all from Barry M ). These are block colours and will stand out against the subtle tones of the outfit.


day to night inspired band t-shirt fashion outfit flat lay from the high street

This is a great example on how simple one item can help an outfit become a versatile look and transition from day to night. I have chosen this image printed t-shirt from The Wanted. Just like the outfit above, I have styled it with a pair of high-waisted shorts from Topshop also in a floral print but the style and fit are different. Unlike the ones above, these are loosely fitted and have a flare fit in the fabric. These two pieces are a typical day look, but once you add this faux fur coat from Chelsea Girl, River Island it brings out an element of elegance and sophistication. It's such a gorgeous piece in a rich burgundy colour. To highlight the red tones from the fur coat, this heart tartan bag from New Look is the perfect accompaniment. The flatform boots from ASOS are a great statement piece for all occasions and I have of course styled it with little white socks.

As the outfit is a versatile look, the accessories are pretty simple and don't overpower the outfit. I picked up this necklace from Lazy Oaf and you can actually move the top heart round to reveal a mirror. These are a ring pack from ASOS and I just love how they're all quite different but somehow still look cohesive. The watch is by ElleGirl and called En Voyage, which I actually did buy while I was on holiday. It's got a 3D effect on the inside of the face and has beautiful hand drawn illustrations round the strap. The last piece to this outfit is the studded bow, I think I love bows as much as I love my socks so this is something extra to complete the look. I have chosen 3 nail effect paints from Barry M in similar tones which all have different finishes. The first is Rose Quartz Glitter, a mix of speckled and larger pieces of glitter that leave your nails with a spectrum of colour. The second is Mediterranean, a two-tone effect in a pink and coral colour, it's a part of their new Aquarium nail effect collection that features rich oceanic tones. The third is Pink Silver Glitter, this is a much finer cut glitter than the first and leaves your nails with a delicate glitter finish.

Let me know in the comments below how you style your band t-shirts and if you will be trying any of these looks out.
