Festival Florals: Glastonbury 2013

Floral Backpack | Nica Print | Festival Florals

With my favourite UK festival over for another year (sob, sob), I thought it would be a fitting time to share with you my favourite style picks from the last three days at Glastonbury. From performing artists to A-list celebrities, the floral trend was big news at this year’s event. Let’s take a look at the guests who wore florals best, flower power!

Katherine Jenkins embraced the sunshine with denim shorts and a floral blouse combo. Wearing a floral head crown, wayfarers, cross body bag and bangles for accessories, the Welsh songstress dressed in pastel colours which looked radiant paired against her olive skin.

Music singer and style icon Florence Welch wore a white Grecian style dress to perform in and later changed into an off duty bright floral tunic with tan accessories and 50’s sunglasses. I love how effortless this outfit looks - to me festival style is all about channeling your inner boho chic and wearing comfortable statement pieces, Florence has done it again!

Millie Mackintosh kept it simple with a scaled back green parka, wellies, black polo neck crop and shorts. The Made in Chelsea star completed the look with a yellow flower crown which gave the look a bright pop of colour – she was even spotted with a matching drink cup!

Even newbie on the block, Gabrielle Aplin sported a red floral daisy blouse and cream print matching shorts during her performance on the BBC introducing stage. The young English songstress looked demure and elegant.

All of these looks inspired me to get on board and that’s why I decided to create my very own floral trend look book - I hope you like it! 

1.      As I mentioned in my last post, I love flower head crowns, they give every look a whimsical vintage spin and spruce up plain outfits.

2.      Whilst brogues aren’t the most obvious choice of footwear for a festival, occasionally the weather stays dry allowing us to leave those clunky wellies at home. This year’s Glastonbury was mud-free!

3.      Flowing maxi-dresses are so easy to wear, just throw on and go. I love this navy daisy print dress, it is figure flattering and could be dressed up with accessories or worn with boots for a casual look.

4.      Round sunnies are all you need to hide tired eyes, these floral sun-specs are 1950’s with a modern twist.

5.      This Nica Play print floral backpack has all the room you need to store the day’s essentials and looks great too, perfect for girls on the move.

Who do you think rocked the floral trend best?
