Festival High Street Picks

Glastonbury 2011 is officially in full swing (mud, rain and all included) and the fashion police have been out and about patroling the attendees who will be inspiring us for the remainder if the summer months.

Hot off the press this weekend, however, is the fact that Kate Moss has been voted as being the best dressed festival goer at Glastonbury back in 2005. Mossy paved the way to short shorts (yeah thanks for that one love!) edgy studded detailing and, of course, the ultimate festival must have; the Hunter wellies.

The winning look is said to have influenced many festival goers outfit choices today, from celebs such as Jameela Jamil and Pixie Lott been inspired by the catwalk model.

So how can you get this look too I hear you ask? Well whether your at Glastonbury or are planning on attending the many other festivals throughout the year or even if you just fancy nipping to your local shops a la Moss, be sure to head to River Island for some copycat pieces.

Notice Kate Moss' cute little buttoned up waistcoat? River Island have a close match at £40, but what an investment piece as a waistcoat can add a new look to a dress, or put a smarter spin on workwear too.
 These short shorts are perfect for the festival season - short enough to catch a tan on those pasty legs (if your lucky and get the sun that is!) and catch the essence of Kate's winning festival look at just £24.99
 Don't be afraid to toughen up your look by shopping in  the menswear section as you will find rougher and edgier pieces like this studded leather belt £19.99 Wear it like Kate; slung low on the hips.

The studded leather bag £29.99  is also a must have item. Small enough to not get in the way of your raving but still plenty of room to fit in your esessentials like your camera, sun cream and whatever else you may want to hold close to you.

If you prefer a more feminine festival look but still inspired by Kate Moss winning Glastonbury look from 2005, check out River Islands hippy take on these pieces.

I love this denim cut offs with the embroidered floral design on each pocket. These are from River Island's Chelsea Girl range, £30

The burnt orange of this pussy bow blouse is very on trend for the summer season. The billowing sleeves scream out 60's hippy and the blouse is free enough to bust out those festival moves, £29.99
Hair accessories will be everywhere at the summer festivals so pick yours up now for just £4.99. The floral detail coincides with the embroidered denim shorts and hits the seasons floral trend right on the head (get it ?!)

If you want to stand out from the mud, its time to clash your prints and experiment with texture!

 How cool is this feathered hat? Both hair and had accessories will be huge and River Island have a great selection of both. Snap this one up now online for £14.99 as I'm predicting it to be a fast seller!

This shirt is a fab buy and will go with almost anything. The tie detail a the front gives it a casual twist and I love the low cut arm holes too £19.99
Clash the above shirt with these bright funky shorts £19.99

So there we have it; we have the rock style inspired by Kate Moss iconic look  from back in 2005 then a more feminine style for all of you boho girls out there and for the brave, a daring look consisting of clashing prints and funky head gear.

So head to River Island for a fantastic range of festival clothing for all!
