Get Dressed for Laneway!

January 19th, 2014

LANEWAY FESTIVAL is coming up soon, just one more week to go! Here’s some inspiration for outfits that are festival appropriate: comfy enough for you to jive in, yet cute and fun-looking.

If you wouldn’t want to be caught dead in the same exact store-bought outfit as someone else in the crowd, go for vintage!

70’s Western Fringe Top with cute little embroidered bows, paired with casual denim shorts. This will move perfectly as you groove to the music!

Gorgeous little bows, which add some girly flair to your outfit.

We love this jumpsuit! A slightly edgier look for the festival, yet keeping it cute with the bow and florals.

This comfy romper will keep you cool under the hot sun as you groove to the music. With cute lace details at the bottom!

If you’re one for colour: this cheery sundress would be perfect for lying on the grass and soaking up the sun at the festival.

Here’s another fun sundress. Paired in this photo with a colourful rainbow straw bag, that will store all your festival essentials and look great on you at the same time.

A fun and bold look: we paired this adorable pair of printed shorts with a scarf tied as a top, to create a unique look that definitely stands out from the crowd.
