Style It Vintage: Top Ten Festival Outfit Ideas

Make it a Double: More Splendour in the Grass 2017 Style Inspo

As much as I like daisy chains and daisy dukes, I want you to look batshit, insanely gorgeous this Splendour in the Grass. So I’ve created not one, but two style guides featuring some of the most amazing vintage-festival-style ever! To read part one – click here.

Ideas I love (and yes I couldn’t stop at 10…):

Layering – Hats, silk slips, vests, lace, feathers, belts, leather cuffs, headpieces…

Sheer Beauty – Think tops, dresses and scarves (that can also double-up as Bridget Bardot style bandana’s).

Military Tactics – You can never go wrong with an army cap or military jacket (add some glam with vintage brooches).

Into the Wild – A vintage leopard coat will always look festival-ready. A classic!

Modern Romance – Never underestimate the wow factor of adding a cape, be it sequined, lacey or heavily embroidered.

Bombs Away – Vintage silk Japanese or sequined bomber jackets with combat pants look AMAZING!

Rock It – Vintage rock tees (cut-up in a muscle tee shape) with a peek-a-boo bralette!

The Cover Up – Layer jeans with dresses and skirts.

Be Playful – Rip the lining from an old sheer, net or lace dress and wear with your most beautiful intimates.

Wear Tough with Soft – Add a leather vest with a lace vintage dress or a pretty top with leather shorts or pants.

Go Noir – Winged eyeliner and lots of it!

Sparkle – Radiate with some shine. Think a smattering of sequins or a touch of glitter.

Of course there are NO RULES (except maybe no stilettos, unless you’re planning on staying strictly backstage). Just enjoy the dress up…or don’t. This is a festival stress-free-space! And if you want the ‘in’ on where to find the best vintage on the Northern Rivers, click here. Sarah x
