Festival season is here and we know you want to look stylish. But you have to keep the reality in mind: few showers, lots of sun, or wind (in the Western Cape) or rain (in Durban and Gauteng), and lots of running from stage to stage to view your favourite band.

And of course, there will be dancing. 

When we think of festival fashion we think of the classics like denim shorts, bohemian dresses, floral headbands and strappy tank tops.

2. Off-the shoulder dresses/tops

Show off a bit of skin (and catch a bit of a tan) with an off-the shoulder dress or pair an off-the shoulder top with high-waisted shorts or a denim skirt.

3. Lace-ups or sandals

Be comfortable and have fun in a pretty pair of lace-up sandals, pumps or even combat-style lace-up boots for that edgy feel.

4. Jumpsuits

You can never go wrong with a jumpsuit. Go for a casual and comfortable one and complete your look by adding a few accessories.
