😎🌎 4 Tips for Eco-Friendly Fest Fashion 🌎😎

Fast fashion is OUT, Fest fashion is IN 💅check out our fave sustainable 'fit tips for the 2024 festival season!

If you're heading to a festival or two (or three) this year and want to make a statement while staying sustainable, take a little peek at our ideas below for some fashion-forward, eco-conscious, fest-fits! ☀️

Vintage Vibes

For unique pieces full of character, check out vintage and second-hand shops. Bohemian maxi-dresses, crochet halter crop tops, high-waisted denim shorts - you'll find loads of festival inspo! 🛍️

Reduce, Reuse, Upcycle

If you're really looking to save some pennies for the event, have a root through your wardrobe for some old pieces you haven't worn in a while. Cut up an old tee, embellish a pair of shorts, turn an oversized shirt into a cute kimono. Get creative! 🧵

DIY Accessories

Flower crowns made with ✨actual✨ flowers, weave personalised friendship bracelets with cotton, and make your own necklaces with bits and bobs from broken jewellery. They'll be totally unique to you, and made to your specs - just how you want them! 🌸

Zero-Waste Accessories

Bring refillable water bottles and reusable tote bags to minimise your plastic waste. These can be fashion statements in their own right - there's a huge choice available if you haven't already got your own! 💧

 So ...

Embracing sustainable fashion for festivals not only helps protect the environment but also allows you to express your unique style creatively.

By choosing vintage pieces, upcycled garments, eco-friendly fabrics, and ethical brands, you can enjoy the festival season while making a positive impact.
