It’s festival season, which means we can finally let loose and have the best fun with fashion and style! A festival look is basically the grown-ups version of opening up your Mum’s wardrobe, trying on all her gowns and accessories at once and feeling truly fabulous.
Come on everyone, throw on your favourite lace bralette and the most extravagant pieces in your wardrobe and embrace your inner boho goddess.
Looking for some inspiration? We’ve teamed up with our favourite designers at FLOCK to show you how to get festival ready Brighton Lace style, with 4 statement festival looks that’ll carry you through your summer of music, movement and making memories that will last forever.
Not that anyone should ever really have to think twice about showing a bit of skin, but sadly as much as want to wear a see-through crop top to work it’s not always appropriate! The same can’t be said for festivals.
Team our Lou Lou White Lace Halter (this one comes with a cotton bandeau thrown in), a pair of classic denim cutoffs and layer with a silk kimono like this gorgeous batik piece from Pick Up Sticks Vintage for ethereal fairy queen vibe.
One Brighton Lace festival rule, never hold back on the jewellery or floral accessories. We love to pile on the statement jewellery like these awesome brass rings from Palomita Jewellery. Your hair is also the perfect canvas, how beautiful do these dried flowers look? Perfect for frolicking in the meadow flowers (or realistically in a muddy field full of people depending on where you go) to your favourite bands.
Unleash in your inner floral goddess with this decadent co-ord outfit. Team the vibrant reds, yellows and pinks of our newest creations – ditsy floral Rosie Crop Top and lace-edged shorts with this gold kimono from Pick Up Sticks for a look that’s dripping with a glamour that not even wellies will dampen!
Co-ord’s are ideal festival attire, as not only do they look gorgeous they also mean that you can pack light and switch up your look for the next day – wear our lace-trimmed bralette with your favourite skirt or pair of denim shorts, and the floral shorts with a different top on another occasion. Add bangles likes these and a gold Bee necklace from Palomita Jewellery and you’ll be festival-ready.
Choosing handmade and unique pieces from independent businesses means that you’re guaranteed to look special and will be wearing a statement look that’s truly yours. This outfit was made for dancing and singing your heart out with your friends, whilst watching the sun go down.
This third look is for the folky femme fatales who always co-ordinate their outfits with darker hues. Try layering up one of our simple and easy to wear lace tops. Let your delicate laces peeks through, adding dimension and texture to your outfit, both light enough to keep you cool during summer days and nights.
Team these with bold eye makeup and a pair of statement high waisted shorts – the more colourful the better. We are in love with this pair from The Emperors Old Clothes. And when the weather gets cooler, grab your Pick Up Sticks Vietnamese tribal jacket with embroidered detail – the coat like no other!
For the accessories we picked this awesome deep blue statement feathered headdress from Hapuska, a heart necklace by Izzie Artisan and tribal earrings and colour pop pom pom rings by Palomita Jewellery.
The fourth look evokes Queen of the Forest. Our racerback lace crop tops also work so well layered as a top underneath your favourite playsuit, we’re in love with this gold number from The Emperor’s Old Clothes! The vintage gold cotton is offset perfectly by this amazing sheer mesh and velvet floral Hearts and Guns kimono with its contrast of rich pinks and black and a Japanese silk crossbody from Vintage Victoriana to keep all your possessions safe while you party.
Remember that rule that you should take one piece of jewellery off before you leave the house? That definitely doesn’t apply to festival fashion. Go all out with two show-stopping accessories. The combination of the brass moth Izzie Artisan necklace and this Hapuska golden headdress will have you ruling over the crowds through the day and into the night – the sun glinting a halo of happiness and joy around you.
So this summer let out your inner festival faerie, dress up in your favourite boho looks and experiment, celebrating your unique personal style. We’d absolutely love to see your #brightonlace festival outfits, the more extravagant the better. Tag @brightonlace in your pictures and we’ll share them on our feed!
