Festival season is almost upon us; a summer of live music, carefree days and experimental fashion. Whether you’re going to Glastonbury or Bestival, or heading further afield to Benicassim or Lollapalooza, getting kitted out in great outfits that also double up as a bit of a survival kit is a must.
Go for a bag that lets you go hands-free so you can dance to your heart’s content and not worry about your belongings – we love the Yvonne Koné Oversized Bum Bag for a chic, high-end take on the retro style. A cross body will also work wonders, while backpacks are perfect for carrying around essentials like extra jumpers, raincoats and water. Alternatively, embrace the ‘70s trend and go for a leather bucket bag with fringing; the Maison Scotch Leather Bucket Bag would be perfect for this.
When it comes to accessories, anything goes. Whether you want to be minimalist or maximalist, you can create a unique festival look with sunglasses and jewellery – we’re loving classic styles from Ray-Ban and retro-inspired sunglasses from Wildfox. Jewellery-wise, Maria Francesa Pepe’s rings, necklaces and ear cuffs scream festival. A hat is also a must for festivals – they’ll instantly add an element of cool to any outfit and will protect you from the sun (plus they’ll hide a multitude of hair sins!)
One of the biggest festivals of the year – Coachella – has already been and gone, so we’re looking back at some of our favourite looks for style inspiration. Get the look with the MyBag Festival Edit, featuring our best picks of bags, sunglasses, jewellery and accessories.
