15th Jul 2016 / By JustFab Editor

A festival calls for cool and comfortable looks, such as a denim jacket thrown over a knotted t-shirt. To help you know how to dress to impress at the festivals you’ll be attending, we’ve sought inspiration from some of the world’s top celebrities and IT-girls. Our ultimate festival guide, filled with fashion and beauty tips is here to make sure you don’t miss a thing. Gigi Hadid’s got nothing on you!

A Bit Of Bling

Chain necklaces, bangles, jewelled rings – no matter the festival, boho jewellery is a must-have! A bit of bling will add a stylish and sexy twist to the casual t-shirt and jeans look.

Dress To Impress

Looking good (especially in a massive crowd of music fans) takes time and dedication! To give you a boost, here’s a quick list of festival clothing essentials: crop tops, a maxi dress, an off-the-shoulder top, a crochet cover-up –  and don’t forget a boho belle’s must-have – a floppy hat!

Bag It Up

Your festival look isn’t complete without a backpack! They’re chic and practical, leaving your hands free for non-stop dancing. Not heading to the stages tonight? Opt for a bright  shoulder bag in the evenings, or even an oversized beach bag, when the sun is shining (and don’t forget to practice safe sun, by tossing in a bottle of suntan lotion!)

Boho Boots

Embrace the Boho chic trend with key pieces. Naturally, summer ankle boots are a festival essential. If you’re blessed with hot, sunny weather (which seems rare, this summer), then gladiators and other flat sandals are your go-to. And, of course, we have to bring a pair of block heels for sultry nights!

Beauty Tips: How To Get Festival-Ready

By day, opt for a simple, nude look, with a hint of blush, gloss and mascara. Your accessories should take centre stage! Your hairstyle, manicure and flash tattoos are the key to mastering a trendy boho look. In the evenings, swap your lip gloss for a matte red lipstick and dark eye shadow.

The Festival Manicure

Different types of festival manicures.

Your festival look won’t be complete without an Insta-worthy manicure! Here’s a look at our top 3:

  1. The lollipop manicure: A tricolour design. The colour scheme is up to you – ours combines white, orange and yellow.
  2. The confetti manicure: A light pink base with a confetti tip – multi-coloured, fine lines on a white background.
  3. The harlequin manicure: A line of red dots in different sizes – Sweet and simple.

Festival hair – The Braided Top Knot

When you’re at a festival, you don’t have much time to spend on your hair (and if even if you did, the capricious British weather isn’t very kind to elaborate hairstyles). That being said, you still don’t want to be buried under a head of frizz. We’ve got the solution for an instantly and effortlessly chic hairdo – the trendy braided top knot. No flat iron is required – hooray!

What you need:

  • A comb
  • Hair ties and bobby pins
  • Hairspray


  1. Toss your hair over your face (upside down) and comb them to up the volume.
  2. Braid your hair from the neck up.
  3. When you reach the top of your head, tie the end of your braid with a hair tie.
  4. Wrap the end of the braid into a loose bun and keep it in place with bobby pins.
  5. Slightly loosen the braid to keep it taut.
  6. Gently spray it with hairspray to maintain your do all day long, and voila!

Okay, girls, we’ve revealed the secret to a flawless festival look. Please, just don’t forget us, when you’re rocking the front row (like a true fashionista)! Send us a snap via Instagram or Facebook, tagging #JustFabUK and #JustFabFestival. HAVE FUN!
