COMMENT

One of the best things about summer is the abundance of summer festivals. While most people tend to go the tried and true favourite of denim shorts and a tank top, why not change things up in a cute festival dress? This season, look out for tribal-inspired prints and colourful patterns. Also look for dresses that allow plenty of room to move (and dance). Below are just a few fun festival dresses to check out.

1. T-Bags Printed Satin Dress

Some of the most fun festivals dresses have left-of-centre designs. This somewhat basic black tunic is brought to life by multicoloured embroidery and triangular chiffon appliqués. The appliqués add a 3D element to the dress. Style this for a festival by teaming it with thick black sunglasses and a pair of canvas shoes. Alternatively, you could also wear this as a shirt and tuck it into a pair of denim shorts.

3. Topshop Multi Tie Dye Asymmetric Hem Dress

Tie dye prints are typical of festival fashion. This dress has a simple shift design and features an asymmetrical hem. It also has a low scooping v-shaped back. Embrace a bohemian inspired look and pair this dress with a fringed shoulder bag and tan boots.

4. Sass & Bide Take to the Streets Tank Dress

Sass & Bide Take to the Streets Tank Dress

Price: $165.00 at net-a-porter.com

Tank-style designs make for fun festival dresses. Their main appeal is the fuss-free nature of the design and relative ease of wearing them. The focal point of this dress is the multicoloured ‘defend the people’ slogan at the front. It’s slightly sheer so wear a slip underneath if desired. If you want a looser fit, then it’s probably best to go a size up.

5. Topshop Cream Crochet Lace up Front Dress

6. Yellow Buttercup Print Midi Dress

Longer hemlines are a popular choice this summer, and this look is bound to seep into festival fashion. Work a ladylike look in this buttercup print yellow midi dress. It has a high neckline, shirred waist, and is made from semi sheer fabric. Wear this dress with a sleek leather cross-body bag and wrap sandals.

7. Tibi Mosaic-Print Stretch-Jersey Kaftan Dress

Price: $230.00 at net-a-porter.com

The mosaic print on this dress makes it an ideal choice for the category of fun festival dresses. It has a summery kaftan silhouette and features subtle ruching at the waist.

Team it with some strappy sandals and a slouchy side bag and sit back and enjoy the festivities.

Ideally, festival dresses are best worn when you know you’ll be having a fairly releaxed experience. If you’re intending to spend a lot of time up close in mosh pits then you may have to dress more accordingly! Which of these fun festival dresses do you like most?
