There are a number of things you should try to avoid during festival season—a forgettable outfit is one of them.
How many occasions are there when we get the chance to sport elaborate headwear, recreate My Little Pony (or some other outlandish look) via hair and makeup, or don glittery, show-stopping looks? Answer: not very many.
Nowadays, if you aren’t going to festivals to showcase your quirkiest, often hand-sewn and over-the-top styles and looks, then what are you really doing? (Besides enjoying good company and soaking up the ever-present sun to live music from your favourite musical acts, of course.) From Osheaga, Afropunk, Glastonbury and other local festivals happening in your city, here are some boutiques to shop for some risqué outfits that are impossible to forget.
Let’s think back to elementary and middle school days, when, unless you were that child, we all knew at least one grungy, gothic kid. Dolls Kill considers that style chapter, blending it with women’s streetwear and a dash of athleisure to produce an unlikely combination you never would have imagined. The label is a self-proclaimed subversion of the conventionalities of the fashion industry. The shop allows women and femmes to experiment with their sexual identities, as well as their tastes in both music and fashion. It’s the glam brand for you to release your inner riot.
Have you ever strolled down memory lane and binge watched your favourite early 2000s music videos? Personally, I’m thinking about videos from Spice Girls, Christina Aguilera and Mandy Moore. If your answer is “yes”—which, let’s face it, it definitely should be—Adriana Sahar is the bubblegum pop dream style you’ve wanted to fulfill ever since you pressed play on Britney Spears’s (You Drive Me) Crazy video. Sticking to a soft-toned, pastel palette, with the exceptions of a few bold monograms pieces and colour blocking sets, Adriana Sahar’s line will complete your My Little Pony aesthetic, with exaggerated ruffled bell-bottoms and matching off-the shoulder tops.
