#1: Pastel Colours

We love our neon hues and bright, bold colours but this season, it’s all about muted tones and pastel hues. These pretty colours will instantly lend your look a girlish, more feminine appeal and are super versatile as well. How to up the ante of your look: layer several pastel coloured separates together – it will definitely get you some eyeballs.

#2: Plastic

Sure, an outdoor festival calls for skin-baring outfits, but with weather as unpredictable as ours, it’s hard to tell if it may rain on the festival day. The best way to stay waterproof? Throw on some plastic boots, which will also give you some instant style cred.

#3: The Fanny Pack

The fanny pack has no doubt become one of the most covetable bags this season. It also gets our vote for being super versatile and spacious so you can fit all your festival essentials in it and boogie to your favourite tracks without losing them.

#4: The Retro Sunglasses

A pair of chic and stylish sunnies can never do a girl wrong – it protects your peepers from harmful UV rays, hides dark circles and instantly ups your chic factor. But the one pair that street style stars and industry insiders alike have been sporting off? This cool, retro number from the 80s. This major throwback brings with it an edgy appeal like no other.

#5: Clashing prints

The coolest way to wear patterns now? Layer it over multiple prints just like how these fashion showgoers do. So if you’re thinking that wearing clashing prints is a fashion faux pas, think again.

#6: Sequins

It may not be a party but who said you can only rock sequins at clubs? Spotted all over the runways of the Spring/Summer 2018 fashion shows, sequin pieces are huge right now and it’s only fitting that you wear it at the biggest indie music festival in town.
