MEN'S SUMMER FESTIVAL OUTFIT IDEAS: WHAT I WORE



Yes I'm back with another 'What I Wore' and this time it's time for a Summer Festival Edition, sharing with you my outfits from the past weekend. I was luck enough to be invited back to Latitude Festival for a second year, with Carlsberg as part of our ongoing partnership for this year and thought it would be a good idea to share with you some of my favourite pieces that I picked up for the weekend, and how I decided to wear them. Some of the pieces were swapped in and out of other outfits and I did take things like a waterproof coat and my Hunter Boots for me in case of rain (and I'm so grateful I decided to take them). *contains gifted items.




The first outfit ended up being my favourite, and the most popular out of my Instagram posts. I picked up a few pieces from ASOS for the trip, and this shirt is one of the best pieces I've come across this season. The print is extremely on trend and what would a festival be without a printed shirt? I teamed it with a white vest, ripped jeans from River Island and accessorised with a bandanna (a festival must have) and brown leather boots.




This look was a little different for me, and definitely stepped away from my usual style. I've never been the type of guy to go to the gym so wearing a vest is a completely new thing for me, but this relaxed style from Topman actually fitted quite well and I loved how the look came together for a rockier look. I'm always a fan of white jeans in the summer, and these striped jeans (also from Topman) were perfect with their relaxed fit and design. I wanted to keep this a little more casual than the other outfits so grabbed a pair of white lace up trainers, a few layered necklaces and another bandanna, helping me to hide how bad my hair was looking on day 3! The sunglasses in this look are from Lacoste, but the other pieces are all from Topman.




I felt this looks a the perfect mix between smart and casual, leaning towards those Coachella dessert vibes and away from the classic British festival style. Revere or Cuban collar shirts have become a staple in the world of men's summer style and white linen is the perfect summertime fabric. I actually cut the shorts to be a little shorter and to achieve a frayed hem. Again I grabbed a bandanna, this time around my neck, and my navy fedora - perfect for covering tent hair after a few days of being at a festival. To add to the dessert vibes, I decided on a pair of Palladium boots in a stone canvas fabric.




My final look was this co-ord set from River Island, taking things towards a dessert of Safari aesthetic. I've never been one for co-ords but loved this one and knew it'd look great at a festival, with the option to layer up with a vest or tee underneath, or to wear the shirt by itself. The boots also suited this outfit well and meant that I didn't need to pack another pair.

I feel festival style is becoming more dressy as each season passes. Gone are the days of just a t-shirt and shorts, as people are starting to think more about their outfits and looking for that insta-perfect moment when they're partying away. That being said I still feel festivals are a great way for us to have a bit of fun and express out own personalities so if you are attending any, just enjoy it!
