Fashion, Fun, And Finding Yourself: Preparing For Next Year’s Festival Season
Yes, summer is pretty much over… So, when you’ve been heading for beautiful sights over the summer months, you’ve taken advantage of your nomadic sensibility and combined it with your musical taste. You may have hit a festival or two but with the summer months disappearing, so does camping out under the stars, dancing in the tent to your favorite band, and being covered in glitter… all the glitter. So, it’s back to life, back to reality. But, that’s not to say that we can’t prepare for next year’s festival season!
Choosing Your Festival
We’ve got more choice than ever when it comes to music festivals, but you can even go for a festival based on the music, or the location. While Glastonbury had a break in 2018, next year, it’s going to be back with a bang, and, with that, comes the biggest of headline acts. Glastonbury tends to sell out pretty quickly, but it’s not just because of the musical acts, the fact is, that Glastonbury is a festival that’s for the entire family, not just die-hard music fans. On the other hand, you could choose a festival in a sunnier climate than Glastonbury, Benicassim in Spain, or Hurricane Festival in Germany are two that have opposing climates. But even if you end up going to a festival that all your friends want to attend, but you’re not too, this could be a prime opportunity to have some of the best experiences, away from the music. The great thing about festivals now is that there’s much more to it than just a few groups playing on a stage.
Shaking Up Your Fashion Choices
And while festival season is an adventure like no other, by meeting new people, getting your experiences, and so on, you can completely do away with your usual sense of self. So when it comes to picking out fashion choices, you can be the person you want to be! In addition to this, festival clothing needs to be practical, because it can be pretty arduous! So, think about practical items like denim that is the go-to for the typical festival look, but also, think about the swathes of color that you can achieve, not just by glitter, but by jewelry. You can get women’s silicone rings that have various colors, which means that you won’t lose that expensive engagement ring in the mud! Because you are limited in your fashion choices, the best way to pull off a style is to build all of your outfits around one thing, the jacket. Sure, you can take a few pairs of jeans, but as far as coats or jackets are concerned, you only have room for one! And don’t forget sensible shoes. You can be trudging through mud, or dancing in the sunshine, so look after your feet!
Some people prepare for next year’s festival season like it’s almost Christmas, and plan way in advance, but if you’ve never been, you make so many new friends and learn so many things about yourself. When it comes to preparing for next year’s festival season, you need to start now. You don’t have to go for the music, but if you want an experience out in the open air and feeling like you are finally shedding off the shackles of life, it’s time to get yourself to a festival with all your friends.
