Don’t believe us? Well we sent our photographer Rebekah Harris out to London’s Field Day festival to capture the best street style looks going. And there wasn’t a wellington boot in site.
Thought your early ’90s England shirt stained with Capri-Sun and Turkey Twizzlers was the biggest look of the summer? Think again, because the printed shirt is dominating everywhere from Topman to Prada. Wear yours with white jeans and a cross body bag to properly channel those summer vibes.
Please sir, can I have some more…outrageous prints? If one bold print isn’t enough for you, then double (or even triple) up on bright summer designs.
CROSS BODY BAGS
Constantly losing your phone, wallet and dignity? Keep them all safe (well, two of the three) and streetwear stylish by storing them in a cross body bag, the reclaimed retro accessory that your mum will definitely still call a bum bag/fanny pack/man purse.
You might have to stay in a secluded fruit cider free corner for the entire day to keep them clean, but white denim as impeccable as this is worth it.
Dark chinos, canvas hi-tops, padded gilet, sleek plain white tee. Americana workwear is a classic look for festivals because actual staff might think you’re a roadie, meaning access to free bevs and toilets that won’t offend every sense your human body has.
Over the days of a festival you begin to live like an animal. You sleep in the wild, you barely wash, you don’t mind eating food off the floor when you’ve spent all your money on the first day on tepid cans. So why not go the whole mile and just wear a statement animal print such as the classic leopard?
Looking to upgrade those aviators you’ve been rocking since Ibiza 2012? Then retro shapes is, ironically, the future. From John Lennon style round, to tortoiseshell, to Hollywood glam diamond, we’re hyping unique shapes from the past as the biggest accessory of summer ’18.
