It's that time of year again, and while I'm only going to a day festival (Longitude) I may try to squeeze in another one. When you're plus size getting looks together for a festival can be a little more tricky. I've put together a few looks that can be easily created for plus size girls!
Festival Look #1
This is my first and favourite look! Every girl has a floral dress in her wardrobe (If not Asos Curve and New Look Inspire have loads!) and a leather jacket, so this is definitely an inexpensive option! If you're going to a festival in Ireland or the UK chances are it's going to rain at some point and a good pair of wellies are essentail. If you've a wider calf Jileon have you sorted. They come in an array of colours and patterns so you're bound to find a pair that works for you! For the festival vibe a floral crown is a must. They're absolutely everywhere at the moment from Primark to Claire's Accessories and you can pick them up pretty cheap. Of course I always had a statement necklace and this gorgeous necklace really glams up the outfit! An across the body bag is also an essential to keep your belongings safe and secure and the fringing is bang on trend too!
Festival Look #2
Kimono's are all the rage at the moment and all the High Street stores are stocking them! The great thing about Kimono's is that a lot of the time they're generally "Free Size" so most girls can wear them, so don't be afraid to look into store you'd never really venture in to. Festivals for me scream one thing Kimonos!We all have a pair of jeans we no longer wear, and if you're a bit thrifty or any way creative you can turn them into shorts and destroy them the way you want. The Beauty of this is that you can make them as short or as long as you want. I personally love the destroyed look with rips, here, there and everywhere! You can find loads of Step-by-step tutorials online and you'll be a dab hand in no time. For shoes I love cut out boots. They're sturdier then sandals and they look a bit cooler!. Add a Statement necklace and a bright lip and you're good to go! Just Don't forget the Sunscreen!
Festival Look #3
If you're going to a more laid back and relaxed festival, then this is the look for you. Khaki pants are a staple wardrobe piece in my opinion. They're incredibly versatile and translate well in all seasons. I've seen paits in New Look Inspire, Asos Curve, Evans and Simple Be so keep your eyes out for a pair! Add a basic white tank, which I'm sure everyone has for a nice contrast. I always buy mine a size or two bigger to give it a more relaxed feel, especially if I'm wearing them over tighter trousers or jeans!Keeping in the neutral tones this crochet open cardigan is divine. Available from Ebay and Amazon! It's open and looks loose so a size L will accommodate a lot of ladies! Finish off the look for a nice loose chain, a cute Tribly Hat (Claires Accessories have something similar!) and a pair of neutral sandals.
