Ladies, the lace play suits and the cute overalls have been trending this festival season. Coachella’s festival fashion has set the scene for the women this year, it’s spring/summer ideas have heavily influenced the winter coming on spring range for the festival goers. Stripes in the dresses and tops accompanied by high wasted shorts or a hat of any style will help you stand out and be best dressed from day 1.

Keeping the sun out of your eyes or being a fashion statement, the range of sunglasses that are trending is incredible! The oversized style to the cat eye style women have endless opportunities with the versatility of the sunglasses that are being created by Valley, Ksbui and many more.

Also to keep you warm through the nights, especially if your camping. A light knit or cardigan or throw over shirt that can be tied around your waste or even placed in your bag (if it fits).

For the men, whether you wear your favourite band tee or a tee or a tank you will want accompany it with shorts that are not going to show the mud. Splendour is infamous for it’s muddy grounds and dusty dance floors, so preparation is vital when it comes to colour selection. I would suggest  darker colours for the shorts, if you are planning to have a break from moving those feet and resting on the ground. For the night, I would be taking a lightweight knit or a spray jacket for you or even a lucky girl that you may meet.

The injection of the oversized tees and tanks with the tighter shorts has been the overarching festival style this year. Also adding a hat into the mix will keep you both sun safe and fashionable. The wider brimmed hats for both genders have been all the rage, as well as covering the bad hair day!

Festival Fever at SurfStitch.

Image.

With Splendour in the Grass fast approaching and the Summer festivals only a season away, it’s time to start thinking about the most important thing (aside from the music)…the fashion!

This year’s festival season in America brought the ultimate inspiration with the best of the celebrity crowd showcasing their take on festive dressing.

Go simple and chic like Rosie and Kate with a shirt and short combo or printed dress.

Dita Von Teese. Image.

Whitney Port. Image.

Dita and Whitney keep it fun and fresh with quirky colour combo’s and simple whites always accessorised with a great pair of shades. You can’t go wrong if you mimic these looks.

For all you guys out there, festival fashion isn’t just restricted to the ladies. Get involved and remember that accessories like hats, sunglasses and jewellery are key for festival dressing.

Music Roundup. Primavera Sound, Barcelona.

You know we at SurfStitch love a music festival and the SurfStitch Europe crew are no different. Just a quick, cheap flight away from the our base in the south-west France, it would have been rude not to have made the trip for one of Europe’s best festivals – Primavera Sound in Barcelona!

Primavera is held over five days at the impressive Parc del Forum, an urban park designed by famous Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron. Situated right on the harbour and facing the Mediterranean sea, different stages sometimes appear to float like islands as sailing boats pass by in the distance. A special festival atmosphere.

The days were long and hot and beers plentiful as you kept a constant look out for the ‘San Miguel man’ – an ingenious concept whereby mobile bar staff with kegs strapped to their backs wander around the festival stages ready to render top-ups at any time.

And of course, the lineup this year was out-of-control with something for everyone and every phase of your musical life. Here we walk you through the looks to match the bands…

Grunge Revisted.

Cut-offs denim shorts, raw edges, chunky boots, a touch of army and lots of jingle jangle accessories equals rocker perfection for the likes of The Cure, Wilco, Franz Ferdinand, Death Cab for Cutie, Wild Beasts and The Walkmen.

Colour Me Bad.

Keep it colourful with fluro accessories, coloured denim, mad prints and an irrepressible smile while dancing like a mad (wo)man to M83, SBTRKT, Justice (Live), The Rapture and The Grimes.

Keep it Clean.

Why over-complicate things? Nothing could be purer than double-denim and your trusted Vans to take in the sounds of Beach House, Kings of Convenience, Rufus Wainwright, Washed Out, Beirut, Jeff Mangum, Yo La Tengo and The XX.
