I’m talking of course, about the annual wardrobe dive for a long-forgotten pair of cowboy boots and denim cut-offs (convincing us that we can look like Sienna Miller since 2007). And all in aid of festival season, which is well and truly upon us.
So that we can all move on a little from the cowboy boots, we’ve decided to pull together some fashion inspiration from a few of our favourite fashion bloggers: consider these fine ladies your go-to guides.
Kate Pe. is a Polish fashion writer, and past master in the art of looking amazing at a festival. We’re taking notes, Kate.
Stylist Linda Portman is a Threads favourite, and for good reason: we think this vintage number, complete with tumbling long locks, is perfect for long summer nights (although a little impractical for pitching tents, perhaps. Maybe just get a day pass).
Our absolute go-to woman for the most amazing clash of colours, patterns and sheer sartorial courage is Marian Kihogo. Yes, the armloads of bangles are perfect for festivals but please, do yourself a favour and check out the rest of her blog. Your life will never be the same.
Julia Sarinana may be heading to the market, but this outfit would just as easily work for those times when you need to look good in a queue. Her blog is another that is worth a regular read, if only to gawp at the sun-drenched landscapes and perfectly pulled-together outfits of her Californian life.
When it comes to distinctive, no one does it better than Leandra Medine of Man Repeller. Personally, we think the attention to detail of this nail art couldn’t possibly go unnoticed by the opposite sex. Go on, try it at home.
