Bingley Music Festival fashion fun. Cheerleaders, Paloma Faith and lots of demin shorts!

The Fashion

Location – Bingley festival in South Yorkshire.
Day – Saturday only.
Music – Primal Scream, Temperance Movement, Dr Feelgood, Tinchy Strider, The Loveable Rogues, The Fratellis (remember them!)

It seems there are some distinct looks when it comes to festival fashions.

1. The new age hippy look
This was like attack of the clones. Its a nice look but was everywhere, it really was. The look largely consists of highwaisted demin cut offs, hunter wellies and socks, plus a drapey top, aviators and long backcombed hair with a headband.
One overwhelming observation though – if you do go for denim shorts please please for the love of all that is , don’t wear them too tight, especially if you dont have the legs. (The dreaded “spam leg” is not flattering!)

2. Fancy dress
Just fun and thats what its all about. We counted 5 male cheerleaders, 2 bumble bees and a man in a stocking! We loved this. Thinking next year going dressed like some vegetables..?

We went for something a little different, I guess we have kind of moved on from the denim hotpands and hippy headbands. I went for a slightly grungy look I guess, with a velvet bodycon dress and a crocheted knitted top, which actually was the result of a happy accident where I skrunk what was a long jumper in the wash and ended up with a cooler cropped version! My chum Lyndsey went for a retro outfit and the best hair I saw all day- a victory roll at the front and a rose and dove hair piece. It was really quirky and was little wonder everyone kept telling her she looked like Paloma Faith!

Have you been to a festival this year? What did you wear? See any good music?

Festival ready. No demin shorts and floral headband on me. But maybe if I had her legs I’d change my mind!
The local ladies were err rather rough 🙂
“How much for one drink!!!”
“Paloma Faith coming through”
Jumping into some straw in a knitted top. Somethings seem like such good ideas after a few vodka cranberrys!!
