How to wear Plus-Size Fashion this Festival Season

Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Festival tickets at the ready and enough alcohol to fill the River Thames… check! All that is missing is your perfect plus-size outfit.

Taking into consideration that the Great British weather, is actually not so great – just adds another spanner into the festival works!

Did I hear you say HELP?

Firstly, we can rule out dressing for a burning Coachella heatwave this festival season in the UK.l

In other words, unless you can justify catching pneumonia for a twenty minute rave to Disclosure, take an outer layer.

Utilize a printed/busy outer layer to contrast a plainer outfit or try a heavily patterned dress with a plainer cover up. (With the exception of daring eccentrics who can pull off print on print!)

Therefore, point No.1 –DON’T DRESS TOO LESS.

So what is on trend this summer and how can we wear it plus-size?

Well, what we have noted this year is that floral has been replaced with tassel. Vibrant summer colours have been replaced with a darker pallet of black, brown, khaki and tan. So what we have, is an ambiance of western inspired festival goers with colours perfectly flattering for plus-size.

pPoint No.2 – TASSEL IN, FLORAL OFF.

The under garment doesn’t have to be tight underneath your outer layer. So contrary to the 90’s, baggy on baggy works!

Further, being able to move sufficiently and comfortably at a festival is crucial. (Allowing your inner Louie Spence to be set free to parade across the dance floor – AKA the field.)

So point No.3 – BEING FREE IS THE KEY.

Accessories?

Accessorize to the max. No plus-size outfit is complete without necklaces, bangles, anklets, earrings, rings or even a hat. (Especially if you are rocking the western theme colours – contrast your outfit with jewelry overload!) ]

Finally, to round off your plus-size festival outfit, we can once again thank British Weather for giving us no ability to pre-plan our footwear. Take point No.3 and make sure comfort is the first priority so you can dance the day/night away.

Point No. 4 – WELLIES OR SHOES… YOU CHOOSE!

The last and the most important piece of advice we can give you for plus-size fashion this festival season…

Point No.5 – BE FAB, BE TRUE AND BE YOU!
