A look at this year’s festival trends

Posted by SockShop

  

As you get ready to party, you could do worse than take a leaf out of festival fashion icons Kate Moss and Alexa Chung’s books. They not only look effortlessly stylish, but also dress for comfort and the weather.

With the festival season in full swing, we take a look at this year’s top trends, from dungarees and cold shoulder tops to over-the-knee socks.
   
Festival Trends
  

Dungarees

Remember the 90s when dungarees were all the rage? Well, now they’re back with a vengeance. The humble overall has been revived in several different styles for the new season, from classic stonewash denim to pretty prints.

Dungarees or pinafore dresses can be dressed up or down for festivals, depending on how daring you’re feeling. Pair dungaree shorts with designer wellies, some snazzy ladies’ knee socks and a wide-brimmed hat.

Off-the-shoulder

You can’t go wrong with Boho style at music festivals. Flowy, off-the-shoulder and cold shoulder tops are a huge trend this year and perfect for sunny weather if you’re lucky enough to get some.

This carefree look is very feminine without being too obvious, and enables you to show off your favourite necklace. Prairie dresses are also great for creating that hippy chic vibe.

Fringes

No, we’re not talking haircuts here. Tasselled trims on clothing and accessories are back in a big way, and the great thing is they’re adaptable to almost any outfit, whether they’re on your bag, jacket, shorts or boots. 

So if you’re not already getting fringe benefits, now’s the time to start, particularly at country music festivals.

Metallics

Shine during the day as well as at night this summer. Swap sequins for metal magic.

Not only do metallics shimmer in the sun, they work a treat alongside your off-duty denims; or you can simply introduce sparkle to your wardrobe through your accessories.

Over-the-knee socks

You have to be able to dance the night away and walk for miles without getting blisters or wet feet, so sensible footwear is a must.

Festivals can be a rather muddy affair, so it pays to have a stylish pair of wellies, and some welly socks to go with them. These are extra long to keep your feet and lower leg warm and dry.

For a look that’s bang on trend, wear some bold or glitter over-the-knee socks with your boots, which instantly add drama to your outfit.
