We are speeding through our ‘Fashion from the Festivals’ guides (festi’ 3 already) and our next ‘victim’ is Reading and Leeds. Starting the August bank holiday weekend (27th -29th) this perfect opportunity to let your inner rocker out and ‘grunge it up’ with the best of them.
This festival is a rock goddess’s dream with living legends Guns and Roses, Arcade Fire and Blink 182 headlining, all of which are UK festival exclusives so this is your one and ONLY chance to get your fill (gutted about sold out tickets- ebay anyone?). They are not the only ones gracing the stage; Paramore, The Libertines, LCD Soundsystem , Pendulum and Klaxons are all putting in appearances over the weekend.
Now the important bit, ‘What to Wear’: Be inspired by our rock(ish) muses; Alice, Florence and Alexa, who wear a mix of grunge and old-school rock perfectly. To achieve; team skin-tight leggings with oversized tops, punk-rock Dr.Martins and retro throw-back accessories. This look is grunge-tastic and should be worn to the extreme, aka Miss Dellal style; slick-back hair, thick black eyeliner and hand-fulls of attitude, think LNA’s Fall 2010 collection.
