Festival season is about to hit Aberdeen hard with Enjoy Music Festival kicking off this weekend. Stylist Hayley Charles is here to help north-east festival and fashion lovers alike, nail their look…
Fashion at festivals is fun, colourful and most importantly about making a statement.
And the best part? It’s full of glitter, sequins and all things bold, showcasing colours and patterns which are designed to make you feel happy and, of course, look the part.
Festivals are all about feeling confident and youthful, not to mention letting go of all inhibitions. When seeking inspiration, many of us now turn to social media and online retailers to find out what’s hot and what’s not.
However, with so many retailers in Aberdeen just launching their summer styles, there’s nothing like getting the chance to go into a store and trying out the latest trends for yourself.
Even if music festivals aren’t your thing, you can still make a statement with these stylish pieces as they’ll make for great additions to any summer wardrobe.
And as many pieces start to filter through from the catwalks to the High Street, there’s a strong feeling of summer headed our way.
Whether you want to go all out and search for a full outfit or work some simpler accessories into your wardrobe, there’s something for everyone.
But if you really want to look the part, be sure to layer up. With so many accessories like jewellery, belts, handbags all coming in various colours and patterns, there’s so many ways to create a personal, unique look to suit your style.
