Bestival Summer Selection

Bestival's sea theme provides a perfect excuse to don some gorgeous retro print. There are hundreds of items to choose from within the Oxfam Festival shop and we had the pleasure of creating four fabulous outfits to match this year's nautical theme.
The first outfit is a simple yet elegant look. The crème high waist jacket adds a beautiful contrast to our other selected items. We love the light tones and straight blue lines that highlight each cuff. It's a stunning item and perfect for evening ware.
The patterned scarf with it's floral and classic pattern is a perfect addition. We think it maintains an element of class and sophistication with plenty of style.
To add a level of excitement to our look we needed something busy. When browsing the rails our next item jumped straight out at us. The loose fitting trousers offer a beautiful array of patterns and colours and we think it adds a nostalgic nautical edge.
The next look is totally retro and totally vintage. This cotton dress has strutted straight from the 1960's and its teal colour with black and white striped patterns look fantastic. We think this could be worn for all occasions.
We wanted to find something that would provide an elegant accompaniment. The silk turquoise scarf adds a light touch to the outfit without being too intrusive.
There are hundreds of fab items for the girls but what about the boys? We came across this cute sea themed woollen jumper. The bold and bright colours go well with any dresses down look.
To finish of the outfit we would recommend some skinny denim jeans and these Ralph Lauren deck shoes. This would look great on any seafaring festival fashionista.
Our last item was inspired from this year's collection of 'Mermaid Sparkle'. It's fun sequin shimmer is designed to stand out from the crowd. We think this is an ideal party wear outfit.
The smooth silk trousers are a perfect match with cute silver slip on shoes. They have a light and airy summer feel which will look great at the UK's last summer festival party.
If you've missed out on the festival fashion fun this year why not recreate it at home and shop from our fantasticFestival Fashion edit on the Oxfam Online Shop.
