How Not To Look Like A Festival Cliche

Alternative title: How not to look like a festival cliché, a Coachella reject or like your of to a plastic garland fancy dress party.

There are three main options here ladies; The first, go for the extreme. The second, keep it classy and the third, look like you fell into a bush made of plastic flowers.

DON’T WEAR

1. Ditch the flower head-band ESPECIALLY if it is made from plastic.

2. Denim shorts with half your derriere hanging out isn’t the best look, you know it, we know it, so why does it happen. Keep it classy, the only cheeks that should be on show are the ones on your face. By all means, be cheeky, but in the right way 😉

3. Consider NOT wearing fringe. You are not at Woodstock and there is such a thing as over doing it.

The short shorts and fringe have been done and in some cases done very well, but it’s time to move on…

Long days. Light denim. #regram @emitaz

DO WEAR 4. All white, it’s fresh, on-trend, you will look like a goddess and that’s good. 5. Laces. Wrap ’em up Roman style. 6. S E Q U I N S – on your shoes, on your jacket,  on your bag…just somehow, it must be done! Take a little inspiration from these ladies…

Wimbledon Street Style: This time courtside!

Wimbledon Style

It’s that time of year again, Wimbledon is here. Tennis enthusiast or not, there is a style to suit everyone. When we think of Wimbledon we think of punnets of strawberries and Pimms galore! (Oh and of course the tennis itself). So, the atmosphere is set, the tennis pros are at the ready, but there is still one thing we have to decide…what to wear courtside?! 

Whether you are a hardcore tennis fan or perhaps you are going simply for the social aspect (and that’s fine too!). We have put together three simple looks inspired by Wimbledon street style. 

Wimbledon Street Style?

What is Wimbledon street style? Ok, so we keep hearing this term being thrown around in magazines, the local papers, twitter and now it is about time we thought about what exactly that means…

Strawberries and Cream

This look is girly, cute and importantly playful. Choose classic styles and elegant cuts that frame your body type perfectly. A soft palette, such as peaches, blush tones and soft corals, gives a very girly feel to the outfit but will also suit fair and darker skin tones. Add a little zing to your outfit with cute accessories that are subtle but striking. Think understated glamour. Another option for this look, is to draw from vintage inpiration, so still very feminine but more quirky prints and florals. If you do take the retro route then we suggest a bit of red lippy to set of your look.

Strawberries and Cream coutside look

Chiffon Lace Dress Now £ 16.00 Metallic Shoes £130.00 Rose Gold Plated Ring £29.99 Hair Crown £8.00

Tennis Whites

Fresh, minimalist and just damn cool. This look is easy to achieve and will keep you cool courtside and we mean literally (as white reflects the sun) and also the other way. Keep the base of your outfit white (a sort of canvas to build on) and then add flashes of metallic, so you will be twinkling in the sunshine courtside.

And…if you still didn’t find your perfect white dress for this look, then check out our White Dresses, we have literally dedicated a whole page to the cause!

Bubbles Darling

This look is old school glamour with a good dash of fun! Go for chic and elegant pieces and funk it up with accessories. Skater style dresses and sleeveless are a good option for this look. It keeps the look simple and then you can build easily from there. So once you have chosen your dress then choose your accessories carefully, this is when it could be fun to think about adding other textures to your look. Remember though, if your dress has a loud print then focus on the material and colour of the accessories and vise versa.
