You may think it’s a little early to be thinking about festival season. However we are already day dreaming about long sunny days, music playing and a cold cider in hand. Festival fashion can be tricky so make sure you are prepared in advance by getting your wardrobe sorted now. We take a look at some of the best selections from one of our favourite festival-friendly brands, Mink Pink.
Who are Mink Pink?
Mink Pink is a brand that started up in 2005 in Australia. The creator Rachel Evans, spotted a gap in the fashion market for a fun, original brand that was also affordable. The brand as a whole has a rebellious edge with no room for conformity. This coupled with a laid back Australian- summer vibe gives the whole brand a festival friendly feeling. The Mink Pink look book is certainly a source of inspiration for us before festival season begins!
MINKPINK LIFE OF THE PARTY T-SHIRT
This piece is for the low maintenance girl that wants to have a good time rather than worry about their looks. You cannot beat a staple t-shirt for festival season. Comfy yet cool this slogan tee says it all about your festival attitude.
Style tip: team this casual and cool t-shirt with some denim shots, boots and aviator shades for that low maintenance look. After all, a festival is a time to enjoy yourself, not to worry about your looks.
MINKPINK FOOL FOR YOU DAISY KIMONO
The problem with UK festivals is normally the weather! Therefore it’s a good option to think about packing some layers. Sometimes a jumper is too much, especially if you start standing in a crowd. So why not pack a light weight kimono style over layer. This floral one is perfect for a festival. It comes in a lightweight material which means it will fit in a back pack easily. It will also fit under your waterproof if the heavens decide to open!
Style tip: Combine with a floral headband for a fun festival look!
MINKPINK ANIMAL KINGDOM HIPSTER JEANS
Unleash your wild side with these animal print jeans. These trousers are just perfect for the festival season. Fun, daring and eye-catching fashion is definitely allowed at any festival. Team these with some chunky boots to get a bit of a modern punk look. A long black top will tone down the look if you want them to look more subtle.
Style tips: Keep the accessories sleek and modern to avoid looking overdone. The laid back is much more festival friendly. The same too with makeup, false eyelashes are definitely not great with dirt and sweat too.
