Jewellery For Every Kind of Festival Styling
Festival season is here and whether you're headed to an inner city or the fields, it's time to make your festival jewellery as bold as the line-up.
From hippie haven Glastonbury, and chilled out Green Man, to rocking our 90s and Y2K best at Creamfields – or overseas on the beach at Lost and Found, and in the desert at Burning Man – there's one element that unites them: the need for incredible outfits.
Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year (albeit a little belated), Glastonbury is the ultimate excuse to channel your inner Stevie Nicks. Team your crochet or floatiest shirt – with bell sleeves, naturally – and gold chains with oversized shades that say ‘I’m with the band’ even if it’s actually just your mates from school. Another retro styling favourite? Bare shoulders, colourful vests with a neckmess of slogan pendants and beads. Oh, and your favourite flared trousers.

90s and Y2K
Hold up, did you get the Blackberry notification? In terms of fashion, for the trend of the moment we’re looking back to the turn of the Millennium. While cropped tops and low-rise jeans may be back en vogue (and on Vogue.com), we’d like to leave the barely-there-brows where they came from, please and thank you.
A nostalgic aesthetic, this new iteration of cut out tops, camis, chokers and slip dresses comes with a new message though: body positivity. We’re rewriting history to be all-inclusive, and nowhere is that more true than with jewellery – playful charms, friendship bracelets and beads for anyone and everyone, plus anklets for those platform trainers.

Life’s A Beach
If you’re playing seaside dress-up, run for sheer cover. Sun-hats, bright sunglasses, and equally iconic sunglasses chains are also a must with your swimwear – and don’t forget about the SPF. Let’s not get burnt shall we. Layer chains and stack hoops for a bold look that’ll blow the other beach dwellers out of the water.

Cool City Breaker
Is Primavera Sound your number one pick? For any destination festival with a side of exploring the city, neutrals are your best friend to style up or down from day to night. Add a chain belt and gemstone rings to add detail, or a colourful bandana to give your ‘do a little something something (and to hide the sweat). You’ll need comfortable clothes and footwear to take you from A to B, and enough stamina to make it home after a long night.

How To: Festival Styling
Look no further if you want even more advice on how to layer, how to create a ring stack or ear stack, or how to stack your bracelets. When it comes to festivals, more is usually more with iconic styles you can wear on repeat in new ways every time. This kind of styling favours versatility, creativity, and for those in the heat of summer, all the colour.
