What To Wear To Your Favourite Festival

Shop four looks for the upcoming festival season.



With the cooler weather upon us, it’s time to get ready for all the upcoming concerts, festivals and outdoor events. The queen of festival style is, of course, Kate Moss, with Alexa Chung, Cara Delevingne and Sienna Miller also famous for their iconic festival style. The key to the perfect festival look is comfort with a touch of cool. You don’t want to look as if you’re trying too hard and you also don’t want to struggle with a jumpsuit in a port-a-loo.

Whether you’re hitting Party in the Park in Dubai on 31 October or the Snoopy Beats festival in Fujairah on 1 November, we’ve created four easy looks, all under AED 1 300 each, to get you ready for your favourite gig. Keep it relaxed and cool and enjoy the show!

LOOK 1: BOHO CHIC

If you want to channel the original festivalgoers of the 1960s (think Woodstock), put together a boho-chic outfit. Have fun with patterns, embellishments and other whimsical clothing. Mix and match and layer, but without going overboard.
