Normally, spending three days sleeping in a tent and not showering would be a total deal breaker, but for Splendour In The Grass, we make an exception. And to make matters even worse, packing everything into one small duffle bag is essentially impossible, so we’ve narrowed down the absolute core basics with a total Splendour Fashion Survival Kit to make packing that much easier:
Shoes you can dance in for 24 hours straight
As you may or may not have heard, Splendour in the Grass has affectionately been renamed Splendour in the Mud and we bet you can guess why. So you need a pair of boots can handle rain, hail or shine and keep you dancing in any weather well into the AM! The Hypnotize Boots Black and the Shasta Boots Black are just two examples of festival staples that will protect your little dancing feet all festival long.
The Perfect Bralette
Don’t know what to wear underneath this top? Bralette. Low cut top? Bralette. See through top? Bralette. Don’t even want to wear a top? Bralette. Bralettes are literally the answer to every fashion question ever. Okay, we may be exaggerating, but not by much! We know what we’re wearing to Splendour and it’s the Anouke Bralette Silver . Splendour is literally the one time of the year where anything goes – so take advantage and be brave, wear the bralette!
A Vintage Jacket
Okay, I’mma let you finish, but Beginning Boutique has the best range of Vintage Jackets of all time! (Ugh, if only Kanye was playing this year, am i right?) But for real, don’t forget that Splendour is happening in July, and yes that means it might get a little…fresh at night, so don’t be that fool shivering the rain, we got you sorted! So do yourself a favour and take your pick of one of our vintage denim jackets like the Vintage Taz the Diesel Devil Denim Jacket, cause you know Mum’s going to make you bring a jacket anyway.
Somewhere to hold the necessities
Probably the most overlooked, yet most essential part of any festival outfit – the bag. Come on, how are you going to take #OOTD pics for the gram if you haven’t got anywhere to stash your phone? Little cross body bags are our pick so your hands are free to hop on that tall guy’s shoulders for Peking Duk. Our pick? The Status Anxiety Plunder Bag Grey. Phone, cash and lipgloss? Check!
Glitter and Gems to hide the aftermath
Yep, all our #BB gals are gorgeous, but we know what it’s like when you haven’t showered or slept in three days, and that’s why you need a little bit glitter concealer. We prefer our bags designer and trust us, the ones under our eyes on Day 3 will be total knock-offs, so we will be covering those bad boys in the Glitter Bomb Lake Blue Glitter Pot. We may even add The Gypsy Shrine Mermaid Crown to hide the fact we totally forgot make-up wipes as well.
