We've had our share of rain and shine at Bestival this year and this has made for a great mash up of festival fashion. We've seen lots of bold prints, super shorts and quirky accessories along our Bestival travels and our favourites are showcased below.

The Oxfam Festival Shop has also been booming with happy customers picking up many a unique item to add to their festival wardrobe. There's been plenty of nautical wear and mermaid fashion pieces in keeping with the festival's HMS Bestival theme.

First on our Bestival style spotting selection is April who teamed a Summery yellow dress with white leggings and Chelsea boots.  "I find all my best stuff in charity shops. I have been to Bestival 3 times and I always come to the Oxfam shop," she said.

Amanda from Bournemouth customised this fab sequin crop top from a dress purchased in her local Oxfam. A subtle hint of sequins is perfect for 2013 festival style.

Misha from Bucks rocked a cute playsuit, a popular look at this Summer's festivals.

Charlie and Theo sported a chilled and casual festival look complete with the resurrected tie-dye trend. We love it!

Rebecca, Surya, Chrissy and Sarah are a bunch of super-stylish sailor ladies all the way from Australia/Bristol. Chrissy's bright floral blouse is actually handmade by Fix Up Look Sharp and they've combined some great charity shop pieces in to their look too.

Amelia from Essex looks fab in this rock chick ensemble. Grunge is a massive trend this summer especially for festival goers.

Rachel from Hastings is rocking a statement accessory with this peacock feather capelet bought from another Bestival trader. She looks spectacular!

We spotted Jessica and Hayley whilst they were shopping in the Oxfam Festival Shop. It turns out Jessica's granny volunteers in Oxfam Horsham too. Great charity shopping sense must run in the family. We love the girl's cute patterned skirts which are totally on trend this festival season.

Bestival 2013 is Tina Wang's first festival and we think she has festival style down to a tee, a tiger printed tee to be precise.

Kenny's quirky, cut off style shows that the boys do festival fashion just as well as the girls at Bestival.

Daisy is wearing a gorgeous, Aztec print shift top bought from a charity shop which she has customised herself with more ribbon and colour. Great style!

Pravina picked up this great patterned jumper from the Oxfam Festival Shop, great for when the Summer rain popped in for a visit. We loved her feather  hair accessories and glittery make up too.

As soon as we saw Victoria's statement shirt we knew we had to 'style spot' her. She looks fabulous in the retro 80s print with a cute leather bumbag adding to her throwback style.

Camilla and Miriam spiced up a cool shorts and tee look with floral headbands and face paint. We also love Miriam's gorgeous patterned kimono, the chic outwear item of choice this Summer.

Nathan, Emma and James all look great whilst browsing in the Oxfam Festival Shop. We love the boys' nautical themed shirts and Emma rocks a great, retro sweatshirt and shorts combo.

Drawn in by the fantastic feather headdresses, we loved Vicky's boho style and a great vintage look from Ellie.

If you've missed out on the festival fashion fun this year why not recreate it at home and shop from our fantastic Festival Fashion edit on the Oxfam Online Shop.
