Festival Fashion

When you think of festival fashion, you don’t immediately think recycled, reworked or reused. Well fasionistas, I’m here to show you that for this year’s festival season you can stand out from the crowd, look great and be super sustainable by shopping for festival clothes in Barnardo’s. Not only are you re-using and recycling, but you are also donating money to charity – win, win, win, win, win situation!

Okuurrrrr. I wanted to bring you some of my own sustainable festi fashion. I stopped by my local Barnardo’s and found some A M A Z I N G pieces. Enjoy!

My first outfit is inspired by Coachella. The blue trousers are from Barnardo’s. I paired them with a classic 1920’s beaded cap, ring belt, cut out trisuit from Motel Rocks and a pair of Buffalo shoes. In my opinion, a bold statement piece is a must for a good festi look which is why I love these trousers.


Side note: These trousers are so versatile you can wear them for every day lewks as well.

My next outfit is inspired by EDC festival. Its super edgy and I feel like it would be perfect for the cool Las Vegas festival. The corset is from Barnardo’s. I paired it up with the same cut out trisuit as the previous outfit, a fishnet top, head piece from local seller: Sass and Halo, and a cross bag to finish the look.

Side note: Being sustainable means using the same piece for multiple outfits so you don’t have to buy more clothes.

My last look is inspired for smaller, local, every day type festivals. I wanted this outfit to be a little less sassy than the other two as I love showing versatility in my fashion. It also means a variety of people can relate to my fashion and be able to take inspiration from it. The neon green top (which is a dress) is from Barnardo’s. I paired it up with black flared pants, a belt, a harness and neon earrings from local seller: Bigger the Hoop.
