Festival Vintage Fashion Must Haves

Get ready! Festival season is coming! That means sequins, shorts, wellies, glitter, days filled with music, and in Britain- rain. Festival fashion became apparent back in 1969 At Woodstock — or more formally, the Woodstock Music & Art Fair —Promoted as "An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music," the organisers expected around 200,000 to attend. All told, the audience numbered somewhere between 400,000 and 500,000. Although the festival was majorly overcrowded, and had terrible weather conditions, the festival goers kept it cool. As a result, we have been blessed with some of the most iconic festival wear inspo ever. These days, Festivals have a capacity that ranges from 120,000 (Glastonbury Festival) to 30,000 (Bestival).


For most people, and the internet in general, the phrase ‘Festival Style’ instantly pops up images of celebs wearing denim cut-offs, & floral headbands. While Sienna Miller, Kate Moss, and Alexa Chung did totally OWN that look in the 2000’s, festival fashion (and style) can be soooo much more. Festivals are a fabulous chance to express yourself no matter what your personal style is, you can be glitz & glam, or super casual! Its important to be yourself, and absolutely rock whatever you’re feelin’.


Festivals should be a time to unwind and celebrate with your friends and have fun. But where’s the harm in making sure your outfits are great?!

Heres our mini list of Vintage fashion trends that’ll make all your friends jel:
