Menswear – Festivals

I feel as though I’ve been neglecting the menswear side of things! In this post I wanted to look at Festival style for boys.

Obviously there are different types of festival (e.g. oxegen/planet love) which require a totally different fashion etiquite.  For this post I wanted to look at boys style for a rock/indie festival.  I’ve hunted around and comprised an outfit + accessories in 10 items; enjoy!










10.1.  Aztec print jumper, £40:   Bitching and Junkfood.  2.  Cosy print socks, £3:   Topman.  3.  Red backpack, £35:  ASOS.  4.  Light grey Chinos, £75:  ALL SAINTS.  5.  Yellow tee, £9.99:  River Island.  6.  Brown leather renewal belt, £10:  URBAN OUTFITTERS.  7.  Black Original Hunter boot, £70:  SCHUH.  8.  Penguin flask, £15:  URBAN OUTFITTERS.  9.  Carhart green waxed jacket, £109.99:  SIZE.  10.  Black wayfers, £12:  ASOS.


Honestly.  I have no words for this Topman creation.

Hope you enjoyed this post!  It was fun but challenging doing a post about menswear so if you have any feedback please comment.   Remember if you want to see any of the clothing featured in the blog just click on the writing highlighted in pink :).

Festival season excitement

Hi everyone, sorry for the delay and my general laziness!  This week I’m getting very excitamundo because hopefully I’ll be booking the 15th-22nd of June off and booking my tickets to go to the SONAR festival in Barcelona!

Click here for the SONAR website.

While I’m there I’ll definitely have to do stylespotting every day – I can’t miss that opportunity!

So because of that It’s got me thinking about festival style in general..

Unfortunately for anyone going to a local festival, Ireland and England are both considered to have generally miz. and unpredictable weather so we have many more things to worry about fashion-wise.  Here are my 3 basic essentials for a local festival (eg. OXEGEN).

1. Wellies – seriously, do not kid yourself into thinking your converse will do.  You will get trenchfoot.

The fluoro-orange Hunter’s are gorgeous but £75 is a wee bit unrealistic.  Still, nice to drool over.  The unisex Dunlop’s on the right might not look like much but they are a classic wellie-boot, they keep your tootsies nice and dry and they’re only £11.99.

2. Good socks:  Get knee highs in various colours and thicknesses, you’ll thank me when everyone else is getting wellie-chaif on their calves from wearing bare legs.  Also they’re cosy and you can jazz up your Wellington’s with them!

O’Hanlon Mills boot socks (unisex one size fits all) available from URBAN OUTFITTERS for £5.oo.  Blue stripe socks, £5.00 from  ASOS.com.  Try folding the top of the sock over your wellies for extra comfort + so everyone can see your lovely socks :).

3. A raincoat:   Don’t go without a basic pack-a-mac! and also I’d advise you not to bring a big hefty coat as it’s a pain when you get into the sweaty arenas.  Thin layers are the way to go.  (annoyingly I can’t find anywhere selling them at the minute but I’ll find some soon).

So those are my 3 basic essentials, in the next few posts I’ll be looking at rucksacks, tents, make-up and festival fashion in past years.  Oh and what I hope to be wearing at SONAR in sunny Barcelona! Hope you enjoyed this one and if you have any questions let me know!
