How to dress for festivals - Gypset ideas

How many times did we ask ourselves this question? I want to look cool and chic at the Festival, but not overdo it, I want to look like X, but I want to be myself .. Our Gypset team prepared a short tutorial of immaculate festival style for you!

So what are the essentials for the Festival? And what you should avoid? Here is the guide how to catch an eye of fashion bloggers and photographers at festivals.

1. Festival personality: Your style should be reflection of your own your personality. You can't fool people around. If you are a Glamour Queen, you should stay a Glamour Queen, but... with a festival touch.

What we are trying to say here is that festival style don't have boundaries, you can be a Festival punk, a Festival Raver,

or a Festival Snob..

2. Festival DON'Ts:What you can't be at a Festival is Herve Leger/Louboutin heels girl (nothing against Max Azria or Christian Louboutin at appropriate events)
- high heels
- bodycon revealing dresses
- everything in excess

3. Casual look: Try to look relaxed, like you didn't spend last 2 months preparing your outfits, it's not Halloween or Burning Man, where costumes are the essence (obviously you did spend at least couple of weeks on your outfits, but keep it for yourself). Loose fit and layers help a lot to create a casual look.

4. Accessorise! You should pay extra attention to accessorising, as it is a key factor in your look.

Everything from bandanas to anklets will work.
Again, you should be careful with not overdoing as you have a chance to look like a tribal princess.
Festival NO!

Hats: Fedoras are the easiest option

Shades: Hippie or decorative sunglasses

Headbands: get inspired by some ethnic styles

Bags: fringed suede bags, tribal bags

Fringes: Boho bags, shawls, ponchos, kimonos

Shoes: tassel boots or sandals, sneakers, espadrilles and wellies (depending on the weather)

Fringed Sandals

5. Festival Clothing: You have to be able to mix things and styles

6. Folk - tribal - ethnic - gypsy - hippie - peasant. You should consider any of the above mentioned styles. It can be a piece of clothing:

Festival tribal shorts, Kuchi tribal belt, kuchi top www.le-lapin-blanc.com


or an accessorise

The same rule as with accessorises - don't go for a total ethnic or total tribal look. Save it for Burning Man
Festival NO!

7. Layers. I personally love shawls and believe it is the best accessorise, which can work in any situation. Put as a belt, or bandana or a dress or just as a shawl.

Other great idea is a gilet, leather or suede one with a fringe or folk vest.

8. A touch of vintage. Vintage and handmade items give you a great opportunity to be unique. It's not like you bought those harem pants for $14.99 at Asos (again, nothing against it) and surprised that every single person at Glastonbury wears them. If you invest some time in your look, you can find absolutely stunning pieces for the price of Asos. Try eBay and Etsy

With love,
