INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
5 WINNING FESTIVAL OUTFITS
By Maybelle Morgan, 22 May 2018
Yes, your tennis skirt has seen a lot more action since Serena Williams put courtside style on the map, but talk about versatile. High-waisted, 90s school preppy and in the softest of pale blues, ASOS Insider Scarlett is bringing it back for festival season – and it’s no wonder why. Keep that PE theme running strong by pairing it up with a white cotton crop top before finishing it off with high white socks and chunky retro sneaks.
Every year, the rock band tee returns in some shape or form. For SS18, you can forget cropped silhouettes or sequins, though, as it's gone back to its old-school roots – AKA grungy and distressed. ASOS Insider Hannah has the look down: clashing up eras by layering an oversized, printed dark tee over an 80s-centric polka-dot midi skirt. And to finish? 70s-style sports-tipped tube socks clashed with cotton candy pink Dr. Martens boots feat. buckles. Eclectic wins.
Check you out
There’s nothing like checks to give a solid nod to the grunge era, and ASOS Insider Ebony pulls out all the stops with this cool 'just threw it on' ensemble. Yellow Clueless-style tartan trousers are the perfect centrepiece and make for an edgy match paired with a tied-up band tee. And for that all-day stamina, low-top skate-vibes Converse and a simple leather cross-body.
If you’re lucky enough to find yourself on a plane for your next live music experience, when it comes to your outfits, the sun = fewer layers needed. And ASOS Insider Lotte takes the opportunity to turn the fun all the way up to 100, with this 80s-influenced getup. Retro polka dots go head to head with this high-waisted shorts and print-peeking crop top combo. Fun fluffy sliders and a woven bag up the texture appeal, while red-framed cat-eyes nails that Instagram-goals kitschy feel.
The bucket list
If you’re the last person that would ever be caught repping a floral head garland or shirt, ASOS Insider Kicki is your official festival poster girl. A dark band tee evokes that grungy outfit mood just right, and Kicki opts for turned-up pinstripe trousers to add a mensy skate vibe. For accessories, it’s all about the 90s: white tube socks and fresh chunky Nike sneaks. And the retro cherry on top? A bold leopard-print bucket hat, obviously.
