This is it! My first official post on FashionKillerxo taking on my role as fashion specialist and stylist at the blog. I hope you all got to know me a little from the previous post, '20 questions with Matthew Reade.' I'm excited to share my passions and thoughts with you all through my blog posts and take you on this journey while I express what I love doing.
As it was said in my 'get to know me' post, I will be attending the music festival 'Bestival' this thursday on the Isle of Wight. This post will consist of my festival key pieces this summer and some outfit build ideas I have styled myself. While at the festival I will keep you all up to date with twitter posts and will record my time there with pictures and OOTD's ready for my returning post. Festival season is one of my favourite times of the year and I love festival style, so here is some pieces that have been big trends seen this year! - enjoy fashionkillers xo
Here are only a few key pieces seen this year at the iconic music festivals across the country.
- Flannel shirts
- Vintage band t shirts
- Bucket hats
- Printed trousers
- Distressed denim
The list goes on… All of these looks can easily be achieved with day to day pieces you may already have in your wardrobes and if not, at affordable prices. I am a lover of the high end, but a lot of highstreet retailers are recreating designer looks, and selling clothes that are current with latest trends and all these pieces can be bought in your nearest city centre. Festival style is all about looking effortless, like you have just thrown your closet into your rucksack and haven't put much thought into your outfit. Play with simple pieces and team them up with a funky shirt or an oversized plaid - a hat is always a quick way to make an outfit more interesting and fun and should definitely be your most important accessory! Fedoras to bucket hats, beanies to snap backs, throwing one on with a vintage tour tee and frayed denim shorts instantly steps up your outfit game!
While at Bestival I look forward to seeing all these latest trends being worn and how they are being worn in different ways depending on the persons own style.
Thank you for reading my first Fashionkillerxo blog post, I look forward to sharing my weekend with you all when I return with a new post next week. If any of you are attending Bestival this year, then let me know in the comments box below, I hope to see you there rocking your key festival pieces!
