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