Top Festival Tips & Splendour Outfits
Posted on July 31 2015
Did we hear someone say Splendour? Yes, it’s that magical time of the year again. Any free spirited boho babe in their right mind will have at least considered going this year, and if you’re lucky enough to have secured your ticket the next all important step is to put together your perfect Splendour outfit. As seasoned festival goers ourselves, we’ve put together a few wardrobe tips to help you get down, get dirty (literally) and get it on!
Fashion faux pas!
I know we all love a playsuit, and have our favourite playsuit all lined up for our perfect splendour outfit…but stop and think just a minute! Fast forward to when your standing in line as nature calls. You’ve been there for a while, in fact for a life time! Now you’ve made it to your cubicle and have to battle to get your beloved playsuit removed ASAP. Then you have to struggle in the confined space to ensure said playsuit doesn’t end up on the not so clean toilet floor. Getting the picture! Our Senorita Dress may be a much more practical option and just as pleasing to the eye.
It’s going to get cold!
So we know it’s Australia, and the weather may be absolutely perfect on the day, but rest assured it’s going to get cold at night! There’s nothing worse than residing to your sleeping bag early and missing your favourite acts because you’re just too damn cold. Mahiya have plenty of suitable option to rug up in the evenings. Check out our Elijah Hoody, the perfect addition to your Splendour outfit.
Bag it baby!
Although you are going to want to travel as light as possible, there are certain things a girl just can’t leave home without. But lets be honest, the last thing you want to worry about is loosing your belongings, and the bag they were carefully placed in. We’ve got the perfect solution, throw on our Chameleon Bag and think no more about it. Your treasures will be safe and sound attached directly to your back. No chance of leaving your bag at that beautiful fashion stall, or food market, or in the place that you just can not recall.
Have to have it!
There’s going to be food, lots of yummy food. There’s going to be arts, crafts, fashion and beauty products that you absolutely have to have! You won’t want to miss out so you will want to keep some cash handy for that once in a life time purchase. Mahiya has a number of festival ready wallet options but we would like to suggest the Hamsa coin purse as the best practical cash holding solution for your adventures.
So you want to be the bohemian babe with the most outstanding Splendour outfit of 2015? You want to chill in the tipi forest and feel right at home in the beautiful boho gypsy inspired surroundings with extraordinary interactive art and playful performers, the place to explore your creativity and empower your inner artist? Then you really should take a look at our Earth Angel Suede Jacket. It’s a total show stopper and will surely make you the talk of the tipi town. Style it with your fave henna tattoos, feathers in your hair and jewels on your skin.
OK you’re all set. Don’t forget to get there early to get the best camping spot, pitch your tent within sight of landmarks that you’ll remember, and as far away from the toilets as you can. And don’t forget your gum boots!
