If you’re anything like me, you’ve really missed festivals over the past couple of years and are raring to get back out there. With festivals very much back on the agenda this summer, It’s time to pack our bags, load up the car and go! But what to wear? Fashions have undoubtedly moved on since we last spent time dancing in muddy fields, and it’s only natural to want to update our looks.
Modern, Stylish and Casual
The classic festival look teams bright colors, bold prints, and lightweight fabrics with quirky unexpected details like big rubber boots or unusual hats. This year though, why not try something a bit different? Bike shorts have been big news in the world of street style this year, and it just so happens they’re perfect for festivals!
A good pair of bike shorts combines all the sexy fun of a short skirt with a tough, practical edge. In a pair of bike shorts, you’ll not only look amazing at the festival, but you’ll be free to do exactly what you like – dance to the bands, climb on the stage, run through the rain – without having to worry about flashing your pants! You could even ride a bike if you like!
Dress up or Dress Down
The great thing about bike shorts is that they are easy to dress up or down, depending on how you want to look. If you want to go for a more ‘traditional’ festival look, you could match a light-colored or floral pair with a lovely, floaty dress and a wide-brimmed hat. For a more edgy look, you could choose a pair of black shorts and a black mesh top, big boots, and then mix-n-match some unusual accessories like weird bracelets and shades.
If you don’t want to dress up, that’s fine too! Perfect for hanging out in the morning at festivals, a pair of bike shorts and an oversized t-shirt worn with simple scruffy sneakers will look modern, cool, and relaxed.
So, however you style them, a good pair of bike shorts will be an invaluable addition to your wardrobe this festival season!
