Glastonbury, one of the most influential festivals of all time, returned yesterday for its 47th year. The highly anticipated 5 day party brings together some of the music industries most talented artists, along side a number of creative exhibition areas all set in the idyllic countryside. Amongst the many artists performing are headliners Radiohead, Foo Fighters and Ed Sheeran taking to the iconic Pyramid Stage, with the equally anticipated grime artist Boy Better Know rounding up the weekend on the Other Stage.
Here at Trendstop, we have been analysing our social media feeds to pinpoint the most exciting styling ideas to emerge from the festival fashion scene. We can exclusively reveal the hottest looks to our blog readers, as we present the biggest trending looks direct from the UK’s most instagrammable festival.
Glastonbury 2017: The Look
If there is one note to take away from Glastonbury this year, it is that more is definitely more. Carnival and disco have merged together to create an overall aesthetic, as rainbow palettes and heavy glitter applications reign supreme. Disco Ball Sequins, a trend which first appeared in our Store Reports, embellish strappy slip dresses and flowing kimonos with an irridescent, mythical sheen. Customised jackets made entirely out of multi-coloured foil fringing, instantly update any look with a futuristic, fiesta vibe. Traditional baker boy hats are also having a massive moment at Glastonbury 2017, with the help of chunky stick-on crystals.
Glitter gets an upgrade with this latest chunky bejewelled beauty trend. Temples and cheek bones are adorned with carefully placed gems, coming in a variety of colours and sizes. Heavy metallic eyeshadows pair well with the carnival inspired jewels, alongside an extra dusting of glitter for a statement, summer festival look.
The Pom Pom Headband
Spotted in our Accessories Retail Report for Summer 2017, pom poms are making a huge comeback this summer in the form of kitsch hair pieces. These quirky headbands work in a variety of textures, from fuzzy fur to retro woollen yarns. A move-on from cat ear headgear, these super cute head pieces are the perfect styling accompaniment to messily undone hair.
Grey Purple Tints
Validating our Heather Colour Prediction for the Spring/Summer 2017 season, grey tints are accentuated with dusty purple hues. The once popular colouring is making a come back for festival season, with a more tonal quality incorporating the soft pastel smudges alongside a more natural colouring. With the increasing popularity of semi-permanent dyes, this easy hair update is achievable without permanent colouring commitment.
A trend which emerged during last years festivals, Glitter Partings are taking over the 2017 scene with some serious style. The key to updating this look is the double bun, as the style creates a defined parting which is perfect for heavy glitter application. Get experimental with your look by blending two-tones together in a staggered, ombré effect. Make-up follows suit as glitter contouring is becoming increasingly popular, intensifying the normal highlights with chunky sequins and dense coverage.
