CROP IT LIKE IT’S HOT:
This canary yellow “Limoncello” sequinned crop top will have you chirruping with cheeriness because of its hero item worthiness. Throw this on with just about anything – from the tightest of disco pants to the flowiest of full ballgown skirts and you will certainly be the fanciest bird of the bunch! It elevates any humble outfit to a show stopper – look how totes amazeballs it is paired with uber ripped Mom jeans, vintage western style belt and attitude. You can flash a bit of sexy back too a la JT! What’s more, this crop top can be flip reversed. Yes! Lickity split you can use this as a little cardi-esque cover up layered over your outfit to add a bit of lush to any outfit, day or night. F.A.B.ulous!!!
Versatile and effortless, the “Denia” top and skirt are a must-have for a festival capsule wardrobe. A perfect packing partner, the plethora of combinations of wearing this two piece is pretty endless. Worn together for relaxed glamour, this is totally a go-to combo for dancing through the night, whether in the festival field or perhaps at a wedding reception. Split the pair up and see them find new partners in the form of dreamy denim: Style the top with the shortest of denim shorts shorts one day and the night pop the skirt on with a denim shirt tied at the waist. Minimal packing, maximum impact.
Nothing feels as good as shimmying in the sun in a good bit of fanciful fringe and this “May” dress is upping the ante with a whole load of party-tastic embellishment and popping colour thrown in for good measure too! Part “The Great Gatsby”, part rock n roll, if you want the whole field to know you have arrived, this is the dress to do it in. Perfect styled up with some black ankle boots and a great fedora popped on the back of your head, you will have “I’m with the band” chic nailed. Throw over a long black kimono as the chill sets in from day to night.
Want to feel ethereally awesome and utterly goddess-like? Well, look no further than the “Venus” dress to fulfil your wishes beautifully. Loose, flowing and just screaming to be wore bare-foot, this is the ultimate dress to make you the fairy of the festival! Think Florence and the Machine chic to the max here, fillies. Glittering with gorgeousness, the oversized fit is so flattering and fabulous with the most intricate beading, it’s simplicity in its relaxed fit is stunning. However, if you fancy showing off a bit of your curves, belting with a fab vintage belt or chain belt gives it a gloriously 1920s swing.
KIMONO YOU DIDN’T!:
The rise and rise of the kimono is a trend that doesn’t seem to be loosing speed and making it fast become a fashionista staple. Enter the “Palma” – the king of the Kimono. Heavily embellished in the most mer-mazing iridescent sequins, this is one cover up that screams to be shown off. Perfect for over a fab high waisted bikini in Ibiza for old school glamour or thrown over your trusted maxi dress for a nod to the heady days of Studio 64 in the 70s, you are going to feel like a star. For festival chic, this is perma-perfect too! Like the “Limoncello” crop top, we decided turn this into a backless top with the glorious beaded fringing falling down the back with trusty denim shorts for effortless elegance.
Part flapper dress, part Elsa from Frozen on her sassiest A game, the “Athena” dress is 100% show stopper! Beaded in the most body sculpting way, this beauty creates the ultimate hour glass figure that will melt hearts, turn heads and raise pulses. What’s so glorious about this particular piece is how many types of beading and sequin that is used to create this textural masterpiece. Paradoxically pared down with wellies or Converse, this dress just WERKS! Flattering, figure hugging, flawless – we can’t imagine a better companion to Bestival this year than having this beauty in your bag ready to boogie the night away in supreme style.
