Most Loved Festival Looks
Looking back at the most popular festival trends of Summer 2017 (credit:trendshop)
The Embellished Baker Boy
A trend highlighted in our Glastonbury Styling Report, The Embellished Baker Boy sees a party ready twist on the traditional baker boy hat. High crowns are exaggerated through heavy sequin and stick-on gem embellishments, creating a truly statement look to complete any outfit. Customisation is key to this trend, with wearers adding finishing touches such as feather boa placements and kitsch tiara crowns for an individualistic twist on the classic silhouette
First spotted in our trending at Glastonbury blog post, Glitter Carnival continues to have a massive impact on the festival fashion scene at Lovebox. Carnival and disco inspirations merge in this statement festival trend, as iridescent and metallic sequins embellish simple silhouettes. Enhancing the ‘more is more’ attitude of this look, heavy glitter applications contour the eyes and cheekbones, completed by chunky stick-on gems.
The Oversized Sequin
As Secret Garden Party is renown for its party atmosphere, it’s only natural that The Oversized Sequin trend features as one of our stand-outs from the festival. Complementing our Sparkling Stars styling direction, large scale plastic sequins decorate flowing kimonos cover-ups and nineties inspired cami dresses. Dense embellishment applications enhance these simplistic silhouettes with a mythical sheen, a look completed by heavy face glitter and crystal gem contouring.
Lush tropical foliage and fruits bring an exotic mood to Lovebox festival. Touching upon our Palm Springs retail trend, dense jungle prints decorate flowing, oversized shirts to create the ultimate tropical statement piece. This look can also be incorporated through kitsch accessories such as this woven pineapple bag, infusing looks with a sense of nostalgic tropicalia.
Printed Lycra Catsuits
Slip into a Printed Lycra Catsuit for a more daring festival look this season. Stretchy lycra is sewn into figure hugging jumpsuits, providing a perfect base for quirky graphic patterns and rainbow stripe repeats. Accessorising is an essential way to break up the garment, styling embellished bumbags with attention grabbing headwear to enhance the off-beat aesthetic.
Pastel Perfect Furs
Animal patterns step aside as Pastel Perfect Furs adorn casual jackets at Secret Garden Party. Validated tones of sweetened Bubblegum Pink and Salmon Blush are injected in shaggy faux furs, providing a cosy cover-up option for any styling combination. Filled with girl power attitude, these jackets work well with sequined underlayers and embellished beauty looks.
