Festival Fashion Trend Watch: Fabulous Florals

Posted by Sam Oliver Fashion Events Marketing Intern

5th Jul 2013

Having been a prominent trend both on and off the catwalk, it is flower power all the way for festival season this summer! With bright colours and prints both being firm favourites what better combination than to have bright floral prints, on your tops, trousers, skirts!

My favourite part of the festivals is scouting for the latest looks and floral print is everywhere! Glastonbury is the best place to go style spotting, with such a collective mix of people and styles- no two people are ever the same.

We hand-picked a selection of our favourites just for you- showcasing some of the hottest looks from Glastonbury Festival 2013! Shop the look with our Oxfam Online Shop and grab yourself a vintage bargain for the next festival!

This Oxfam Shopper looked stunning in this bright blue floral dress. Embroidered white cotton patterns gave her a beautifully feminine look, with the delicate flower crown complimenting her rose pink complexion.

Short shorts are a massive trend on the high street, with some mixing it up and incorporating the floral trend with printed floral shorts and tights making them stand out in the crowd. Teamed with tights, or going bare-legged, these shorts are a versatile festival wardrobe staple- that can be worn with a plain tee thrown on and wellies, simple and stylish. Get yourself a pair from the Oxfam Online Shop Festival Selection here!

As we all know, the British Summer weather time is known for its unpredictability, and so a light sheer top such as this floral one is perfect for layering. Lightweight yet stunning, it can be covered with a cardigan when the night draws in, yet lets your shoulders catch the sun in the late afternoon. Those pinks and purples are beautifully complemented by the light denim skirt (see our denim-trend coverage here) and are prominent floral colours for this summer.

Speaking of layering, we've seen beautiful kimono's appear time and time again and this one is no exception. Lightweight yet beautifully elegant, they can be thrown over anything to keep the chills at bay and maintain an effortless stylish look. We love the combination of the soft pastel floral kimono with the printed bralette and long pencil skirt- circa 1950's chic meets contemporary high street style, elegantly done.

Shop the look and get your vintage festival style on the Oxfam Online Shop to keep up-to-date with the best in festival fashion style.
