The Only Accessories You`ll Need For This Summer`s Round of Festivals

It's that time of year again! From Coachella to Creamfields, from Glasto to GO GO GO, festival fever is building. Whether you're staying at home or heading abroad for the festivals this summer, you'll want to make sure you're up-to-date with the latest festival fashions. If you're camping, you'll have lots to carry, so it's important to travel light. A good selection of accessories will help you to jazz-up basic outfits, adding a girlie edge to jeans and t-shirts. Let's take a look at this year's must-have accessories for fab festival style.

The shades.

No self-respecting star would be seen without a stylish pair of shades, so make like a celeb and rock some snazzy sunnies this summer for a fab festival look. If you like to stand out from the crowd, you'll love cool cat-eye sunglasses. Ideal for hiding all traces of late nights spent dancing under the stars, the retro pink frames and cat's-eye flick make these a fun favourite for festival go-ers.

The headband.

Fab florals were all over the catwalks this season; from Hawaiian garlands to pretty pastel corsages, there are plenty of ways to work the summer's fashion for flowers into your festival wardrobe. A pretty headband is the ideal way to add a flowery feminine touch to your outfit. Perfect with cut off jeans and a plain white blouse, this can be a real statement piece of headgear. Team with plenty of <b>silver costume jewellery</b> - particularly popular for festivals are anklets, toe rings and stacking bangles - for sexy style with a seventies twist.

The bag.

Finding the right day bag for festivals can be a challenge. You're likely to be standing for most of the day and traditional handbags and shoulder bags can be too uncomfortable and bulky. Cross body bags are the best option for carrying your bits and pieces at festivals. A roomy little number with an ethnic twist is perfect for completing your festival look. Make sure you go for zip fastening and inner compartments to make sure your essentials stay safe. With plenty of space for cash, sunglasses and snacks, a cross-body bag is a festival must-have.

The watch.

When you're at a festival, time is of the essence. To make sure you don't miss out on the best acts, you need to get yourself a good watch, to make a practical style statement. A feminine silver mini watch can be a versatile timepiece, so go for one that is dainty but still has a masculine edge, meaning it will work with your everyday wardrobe after festival season is over. Choose a piece that is water resistant and featuring an alarm, so you'll be on time come rain or come shine and you'll be sure not to miss out on your favourite acts.

The bracelet.

Just because you're roughing it in a tent or caravan doesn't mean you should skimp on style. Pretty jewellery is essential for pulling together your festival outfits, adding a touch of class to casual cut-offs and floaty fabrics. A rope style chain will look fab with bohemian-style outfits, for a fashion-forward take on the friendship bracelet.
