I headed off to Vfestival a couple of weekends ago for the 6th year! I love this festival and it has become a tradition for me and my friends.
I thought this year I would do a little post on my outfits from the weekend at the Chelmsford festival. I really do love festival fashion, as its a real chance to experiment and flourish with colour! Even if the weather wasn’t the best, the one thing to reply on with British people at festivals is that we power through with the summer look come rain or shine!
I always try and plan outfits from the Friday, as even though you start the day travelling you want to show off your look from the get go for the evening!
Shorts- New Look
Jacket- River island
I wanted to make sure I was festival ready but still comfy for the car journey as I knew it was going to be a long one! The jacket I am obsessed with but never get the opportunity to wear. It is light, cream and has fringing on the back and sides, which was so on point for a festival. The denim shorts are always a safe bet and I would have pack them either way. they go with pretty much anything at a festival and our a comfy, effortless look. I really like these distressed hot pant shorts that I grabbed last summer from New Look. I added the chocker that I actually borrowed off my mum, to just give the rather simple outfit a but more of a glam look. I think accessorising is a key element of festival wear to easily upgrade any outfit.
Denim Jacket- Topshop
Skirt- Urban Outfitters
Hoop earrings- Primark
Saturday is always my favourite day at a festival! It is where the fun really begins and the fashion comes out. This was my favourite outfit of the weekend, with the colour, dressed to impress nature but so easy and comfy to wear! I love this top from Topshop but the colour and shape means I can’t wear it all the time, but the sun was shining and what doesn’t go at a festival! I really like the bright yellow against the navy of the skirt. One thing I find really flattering is the wrap of the skirt and allows it to be dressed up or down. Now, denim jackets…you just can’t go wrong and they are definitely a statement piece for any girls wardrobe. They are the perfect look for s light jacket that you can put with the majority of outfits. (I’m even partial to a double denim look when done right). I honestly loved this look and was so comfy for the day, which is so key at festival considering all the walking and drinking!
This was on the Sunday and the weather wasn’t quite so nice, warm but the sun was hiding from us. I really liked this look due to its pure simplicity but came together really well. Again for me it was making sure I felt comfortable and would last a whole day. This dress is so versatile, I wear it to work but dressed it down for the festival. It has a silk front and cotton back, so it just gives it a little extra. I really liked the shirt with the dress as I think it gave the look at little extra and made it more of an outfit, rather than just wearing the dress. Sometimes I think the most simple outfits at festivals look the best, that effortless with effort look! the converse I wore both days as I think they are the perfect add to festivals (as long as its dry!) that create that casual look and you’ll last from day to night in. As this outfit was more simple I went for more gems and a quirkier hairstyle, as thats what festivals are all about right!
I had such a good weekend and for once liked my outfits for the whole weekend! If anyone is thinking about a festival I would 100% recommend. You come back with the most amazing memories and see so many acts for your money! in terms of outfits I think less effort is more! Remember you are camping and spending the weekend on your feet, so dress comfortably and experiment! It’s what festivals are for!
