Your Guide to ‘16 Festival Attire
If there’s one thing we Brits love it’s a music festival. Whether you’re heading off to V-Festival this year, or are more of a Reading and Leeds kinda guy, there’s one thing that may be troubling you – what to wear? Festivals can be tricky. For starters there’s the ever-worrying state of the British ‘summer’ weather to contend with, and then when you arrive you obviously want to be relaxed and comfortable without looking too out of style.
We think, when it comes to festival fashion, you can’t go wrong with light layers, comfortable basics and statement accessories. It’s important to be in practical clothes so you can enjoy your weekend in comfort, so stick to comfortable t-shirts and light layers, then make a statement with some bold and stylish accessories.
Here at Brother2Brother we’ve compiled a list of some of our favourite pieces from our current collections, to help take some of the stress out of your festival planning.
Shorts are an obvious choice for summertime – they are comfortable and great for keeping cool in warmer weather. Stay away from board or jogger style shorts, and opt for something a little smarter such as these Farah Vintage Berkley antique twill shorts. Tailored for a smart and fashionable finish whilst still being cool and lightweight, these on-trend shorts are perfect for festival season.
In terms of tops for festivals, a graphic print t-shirt is an ideal choice. A t-shirt is the most practical of clothing items, and benefits from being both comfortable and versatile. Choosing a graphic print will help you stand out from the crowd: with its bold monochrome print, perfect for making a statement, this Versace Jeans printed t-shirt is our top pick.
Though it hurts to admit it, a jacket – and especially a waterproof jacket – is often a necessity at festivals. Avoid being forced into the dreaded clear poncho and plan ahead with this Colmar Originals ultra lightweight packable jacket. This ultra lightweight jacket can be thrown straight into your travel bag, just in case the weather is anything less than perfect, and its extremely high quality design means it will last you many festival seasons to come.
An essential not just for festival season but also summer in general – a great pair of stylish sunglasses. Make a statement with these ultra fashionable Emporio Armani blue shade sunglasses. An on-trend, rounded frame and cool blue colour will add an instant touch of style to any outfit.
Whether for shading yourself from the sun, or simply making a stylish statement, hats are huge throughout festival season. The snapback has come back into style in a huge way these past couple of years – this multi-coloured Crooks & Castles Thuxury snapback is ideal for festivals. A simple black design with bold, coloured detailing will bring a current, on-trend edge to your festival look.
