It's that time of year. Everyone's starting to talk about festivals and what might be in fashion this year according to the S/S 11 trends! Western Chic is a big rumour (fringing, checked shirts, anything tan), along with New Romantic (ditsy florals, floaty fabrics, pastel colours)!
I personally love the festival fashion hype. Usually I read about all the trends at the beginning of the festival season as the first ones (like Isle of Wight and Glasto) are going on... Then I perfect my outfit in time for Leeds at the end of August!
BUT this year that's all going to change. Having been to Leeds for three years running now, I've decided to go in a different direction... This year, I'm hoping to get a day ticket for Download in June (same time as Isle of Wight)! This is the line-up:
I want to go on the Sunday - Bowling for Soup, The Pretty Reckless and Linkin Park?! Yes please!
So that means that this year, I will have to be part of the festival fashion trend setters, rather than the followers!
I'm really looking forward to seeing The Pretty Reckless though... I've always had a bit of a girl crush on Taylor Momsen, ever since she was in Gossip Girl! I like her grungey/gothic style:
And I like her even more now she's the front woman of The Pretty Reckless! I admire her confidence and attitude; that's what makes her so stylish! You can see what I mean in the band's video for one of their songs, Miss Nothing (click here.)
Bring on the festival season! :)
