Festival Season: Little Layers and Long-Blazers

Posted by Samantha Platt Fashion blogger

26th May 2016

The key to festival fashion success is to create an outfit that's unique, comfortable and doesn't require too much effort to maintain throughout the day.

A festival look should be playful but easy. Picking your look should be all part of the fun beforehand, but once you arrive and the music is playing, it shouldn't be a worry. Keep it simple and let the prints do all the work.

If, like many festivals here in the UK, yours isn't in the sun, then layers will be your best friends. This long blazer-type jacket is great for added warmth (plus tights if necessary) and still it remains chic and stylish.

The printed vest adds some fun colour and makes the jacket pop. As with the clothes, the accessories can be layered too. I've gone for hints of blues to bring out the colour of the denim shorts. As well as a daisy chain hairband, of course.

Check out the Oxfam Online Shop for all your layer and blazer needs, then show us your finds using #FoundinOxfam.
