Daytime dressage a la Summafieldayez or BDO calls for a specific type of casual glam. Exhibit A, the oversized lace tee is part girly, part goth with just the right amount of ‘tude to warn the guys there’s more than meets the eye to this Lolita gone astray. The boyfriend trend is making a comeback and playing with proportions is super easy, just remember to go fitted with bottoms. Anchor the look with some classic denim cut offs and add festival appropriate footwear to finish.
So on target for festival functionality we named a dress in honour of it. Sexy dresses and hot beats go together like white on denim. If you’re lucky enough to be hitting Shore Thing this NYE, or sussing out a suitably sexy party dress, we’ve done the legwork. It’s hard not to be partial when prints are concerned and this leopard inspired geometric pattern is a win-win. Break out of the classic print rut and stand out in this modern take. We’d add serious black booties or stacked platform heels. Working it.
Even if you’re nursing a hangover from the night before, don’t miss a beat for the biggest party of the year, Field Day. Thankfully, party peeps have retired the swimwear as outerwear look circa 2008, but that doesn’t mean you can’t beat the heat and look impossibly fresh. We’ve rounded up our fave selection of bandeaus, and cropped singlets to keep you looking on trend during your misadventures. Bold and brazen babes try the printed bandeau, or dip into the trend with a statement cropped singlet. Pair with equally bold colours like our elastic shorts range for some colour therapy that will start your year off with a bang. The best part? These retro glam darlings are havianna friendly.
