The Street Style at Splendour In The Grass Was Peak Festival Dressing

Splendour In The Grass (or any music festival, for that matter), is usually seen as an opportunity to step outside your comfort zone, and get into a ‘costume’ for the weekend, but the outfits at this year’s festival proved suitable to wear IRL, too. No flower crowns (which, by the way have been replaced by the choker, as Taylor Swift predicted), or tiny denim cut-offs—festival dressing finally feels like it’s grown up. This year, the best street style looks were simple, wearable, and not far removed from what we’d wear on weekends. Ankle boots and sneakers were the shoe of choice, and it feels like almost everyone stepped out in these Ray-Ban sunglasses. Which immediately prompted us to add to cart.

We knew velvet would be huge in 2016, so if you haven't jumped on the trend yet, do it now with a mini dress. You'll be surprised by how versatile it is for day (with a denim jacket and boots) or night (with a leather jacket and stilettos).

Now this is how you do '70s without looking like you stepped back in time. The uneven hem, mini length, and cropped flared sleeves on this dress, equals the perfect formula for day-to-night weekend dressing.
