BRAVE THE FESTIVALS IN WHITE
THE LITTLE WHITE DRESS WILL ALWAYS HAVE A PLACE IN THE WARDROBE
Right now at the North Parklands of Byron Bay, more than 40,000 punters are partying away at the iconic Splendour in the Grass music festival.
Each year, social-media influencers, bloggers and fashionistas take their Splendour outfits as seriously as the musicians take their performances.
Chances are, if you’re reading this, you’re not at Splendour. But never fear because the event marks the beginning of the glorious festival season.
That means there are lots of fun times ahead and outfits in need of planning.
With spring just around the corner, Weekend Magazine reached out to two local fashion boutiques, Shine and Billy J, to find
out their predictions of what trends we will be taking to moshpits throughout summer.
The verdict? They say we’ll be looking pretty in white.
An element of boho style will always have a place in the festy-fashion world and the girls at Billy J Boutique say a white, bell-sleeved, linen number is both easy and stylish to wear. Pair it with brown cowboy boots and a laidback hairstyle such as a loose braid.
The girls at Shine Boutique reckon the summer festy season will be all about girly vibes. This means the little white dress is back in the limelight. Think frills, crochet and textured patterns.
Try matching this style with statement sunglasses and a woven bag.
Will the classic band-t ever go out of fashion? The answer is no. So it’s never too late to jump on the trend. Match with a crochet skirt to balance that edgy look with a feminine twist.
To add more zest to the outfit match it with a studded belt.
