Festival Time: Dresses to wear to outdoor parties

Share

Festival Time Little Black Dress Blog 2019It's Festival Time! Summer is just around the corner and so is festival season. And we're loving the more Boho styles perfect for layering. So celebrating the start of festival season, with the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, we've pulled together the most gorgeous dresses. Here's a guide to what to wear for lazy days and those fabulous weekends of outdoor fun. . .or for Coachella in case you have the hottest ticket in town.

Coachella: April 2019

Firstly, let's begin with Coachella, an effortlessly chic Boho party with themed dress codes - swimwear is often obligatory. So what to wear for California this April?  Well, the weather is definitely hot, so less is more. Opt for play suits and chic bodysuits and team with floaty skirts and the obligatory flats. It's festival time and we're loving Club L London's bodysuits perfect for teaming with shorts or shorter skirts.

We love the multiway bodysuit - at least five different outfits in one magical suit - just tie the straps a different way for a whole new look each time. Comes in an array of colours.

Team with this maxi thigh split skirt . Matching top is also available for a co-ordinated look, try the cowl backless bodysuit. Team with this bag  and add a flourish of lippy courtesy of Code Beautiful.

Glastonbury: June

Then, there's Glastonbury in June - dance the nights and days away in these gorgeous creations - remember to sing out loud to Kylie as she hits the stage as the headlining act this year. Don't miss those fire lit serendades when big acts drop by your camp fire for an impromptu chat and strum on their base drum (yes really).

We would opt for something edgy but practical.

Try this stunning neutral tiered maxi dress by Lace and Beads and add a bomber jacket for extra warmth at night. Layering is vital to keep in tune with the Great British weather. Or if the sun is shining, just tie around your waist or use as a padded seat on those dew-covered country fields.

We love this taupe lace tiered dress .Tiers are bang on trend for SS19 - team with a bomber jacket. We love Raishma's bomber jacket for embellishment and a layer of warmth (cold nigts at Glastonbury away from the campside) and some trainers for a perfect look.

Strap a cross-body bag across your torso and you're ready. Try this Storm bag.

Lattitude Festival Time - family friendly

Next, in July we see it's the family friendly Lattitude festival  - picnic anyone? Enjoy those Prosecco days wearing a floaty Lace and Beads dress and a chic bucket bag by C'est Beau. Soak up the atmosphere perfect for families and music lovers. Last year Rag 'N' Bone man was our favourite artist. And when you're not listening to the tunes, hop into the woods and explore the grounds for light shows and art shows. Remember to keep your lipstick handy for an instant pick me up on those long days and add a touch of sparkle at night with these cute flower diamante earrings

Lovebox, July

Finally, get ready for boutique style at Lovebox one of the most prominent London festivals, attracting big-name performers. There are one-day tickets as well as weekend passes, so if you can’t face two days of festival time, you can approach it more like a concert. It finishes at 10.30pm each night so you can still be in bed early – or head on to an after-party later.  Sounds good to us. But what to wear. Opt for a more rare approach. Try our beautiful vintage collection Nancy Mac with a lightweight jacket or duster coat to ward off the evening chill - just add shades and flip flops.
