Our Junior Buyer Daisy Rae Knox LOVES a festival or two! (Obviously this is sunshine dependant!)
So when festival season began last weekend with Coachella she couldn't wait to share some of her top festival styling tips and create a series of outfits just for you! Think capsule festival wardrobe that will see you though even the muddiest of festivals!
With our social media lives having been taken over by a limitless number of super cool selfies from the sun drenched coast of L.A, we thought we'd pick our favourite looks from Coachella that we will all be rocking at Glastonbury this summer! Daisy's favourite look was that of Made In Chelsea star Mille Mackintosh...LOVE her flower hair garland!
So with a name that sounds like a rock star, (it almost rhymes with Lana Del Rae...sort of!) We are very excited to share with you our "Daisy Rae Knox" and Orelia festival styling collaboration!
Please note...all clothes are so very Daisy's and will be seen in various combinations at a festival near you over the summer, probably covered in glitter!
Think tropical prints, floral and tie dye with outfit no 1!
Simple, easy styling is key for festival wear so team your classic denim shorts with a tropical bandeaux top and tie dye scarf in neon pink!
With wrist wear it's key to layer! Remember you'll be wearing a festival wristband all weekend long so layer around it with our multi pack of lace wristbands (they also double as hair bands- perfect multi tasking accessories!) and the multi coloured star bracelet.
Denim shorts make a return for outfit no 2!
We've teamed them with a tasselled crop top and Aztec printed scarf worn as a belt.
The key to this outfit is the colourful accessories!
The Hamsa hand satchel bag is the perfect cross body festival bag with lots of pockets!
Outfit 3 is "dance tent" ready thanks to the bright neon accessories!
The classic denim shorts have been replaced with lace detailed cream hot pants and a simple tank top in "go with anything" grey marl.
The neon embroidered leather bag allows you to dance hands free and ties the colour into the outfit perfectly without plummeting head first into an 80's neon disaster!
Our final outfit choice gives you instant festival glamour with sparkles, sequins and glitter!
Two key pieces this summer are the vintage turban headdress and sequinned kimono, add these two elements to any outfit for instant disco chic!
We've styled this evening outfit with a cropped cut out black camisole and sequin hot pants.
Accessories are kept fine, detailed and sparkly with this "headliner on the main stage, Sunday night outfit!"
So we just have a few festival rules, top tips and Orelia style secrets for you....
TOP TIP! Remember ladies that wellies are a last resort and take up valuable packing space! You need the room in your backpack for plenty of accessories and flower hair garlands!
Apart from the accessories the rule is always less is more! Think capsule festival wardrobe of roughly four interchangeable outfits that will see you though even the muddiest of festivals! Please see above, we've done the hard bit for you!
THIS SUMMER IS ALL ABOUT FLOWER HAIR GARLANDS! DON'T RISK HEADING TO GALSTONBURY WITHOUT ONE! YOU'LL FEEL STUPID! RUCKSACKS ALLWAYS HAVE A SPARE POCKET FOR A GARLAND!
Do talk to strangers! Some of the greatest people in this world will only be met at festivals!
Don't go over the top with festival styling! Try hard does not win summer style points!
Remember that face painting is not just for kids.
Walk away from the feather headdresses and novelty festival hats, there is a reason you can only buy these at festivals!
Don't stick to the main stage, Go see and hear something new.
Embrace the British weather....you really don't have a choice.
Finally and most importantly did we mention the importance of the flower hair garland?!
See you at glasto.... we'll all be taking flower hair garland selfies in the Somerset sunshine!
IT WILL NOT BE RAINING; we've no room for wellies!
Love Daisy xxx
