So you’ve bought your ticket, are all amped up & ready to go for festival season, namely Creamfields, in late August, but you have no idea what to wear.
Creamfields, or any other festival for that matter, has a dress code.
It may not be set in stone, but there are some fashion items that will make the experience all the more enjoyable.
To help you fit right in and look the part.
Read on for the top 12 pieces to mix and match for this four day festival and fashion extravaganza.
Fishnets are making a comeback, in a big way, specifically under distressed denim.
Try the peekaboo effect paired with a crop top, to see the top of your tights peeking out of the waistline of your jeans.
Dress them up or down with accessories, and add some edgy yet glamorous Tom Ford sunnies to complete the look.
For the August month in the UK, summer showers are bound to happen.
Better safe than sorry, drudging through mud in sandals is never fun.
Have your bright, printed, or polkadot wellington boots at the ready.
Pair with shorts, a strappy top and your trusty mac for the ultimate dancing in the rain ensemble, and don’t let the rain clouds dull your shine.
Yet another fashion item that has made a big comeback.
Whether you choose denim, linen, cotton or even leather; long or short, dungarees are the new it piece.
Pair with a crop top underneath to beat the summer heat or even add a frilly jumper if you are feeling particularly chilly.
Those front pockets are great for keeping essentials close.
I've been in love with off-shoulder tops and dresses for as long as I can remember myself. 😍 . I have a photo of my mom in her early twenties with gorgeous wavy hair and bardot-style top and to me that look was always the epitome of femininity. 🙌 . There is something very sensual and almost vulnerable about fully open shoulders. ❤ . It's also a great style for anyone who has nothing to show in the cleavage department (like myself 😂🙈). Just as well it's one of the most popular styles this summer! 👌🙌 . Any other #offshoulder style fans here?? 👋 😊😉 . #summertrends #summerstyle #offshouldertop #holidays
A trend that has taken over high street and runway alike, is the off shoulder top.
Choose your colour or print; lace, frills, stripes, they are all readily available.
And feel the (hopefully) sunshine on your shoulders.
The kimono trend is not going anywhere anytime soon.
They just keep getting more elaborate, from floor length to cropped, sheer, appliqued, lacy, or with a fringe, or all of the above if you can pull it off.
It is the ultimate cover up, and adds instant drama to any outfit.
Another item that does just that, is this pair of statement sunnies.
Reminiscent of a tropical getaway, printed cotton shorts are breezy, comfortable and fun.
They come in a myriad of colours and prints.
Pair with your choice of your top, from graphic or slogan tees to bardot bell sleeve masterpieces.
Pair a crop top with high waisted bottoms to flatter any body shape.
The strappy-er the better.
The faux suede number, above, adds the perfect boho touch to any outfit.

When it comes to prints, nothing is trending more than gingham right now.
Whether tops, bottoms, or a matching set.
Pair high waisted gingham shorts with an off shoulder top for the perfect festival fashionista ensemble.
Don’t forget to add some intrigue with a fun pair of geometric sunglasses.
Whether you choose embroidered bottoms, or a statement jacket for a chilly evening, embroidered denim, generally floral, is the way to go.
Make a splash with near fluorescent sunnies this festival season.
Whether you go bold with lens or frame colour, make them pop, like these sapphire blue Celine beauties below.
LUST FOR LIFE Loving this amazing fringe bag from Prison Art, go to @numastore_ to get yours now! Jorge Cueto founded the label during the 11 months he spent in prison in Mexico before his innocence was proven in 2013. Prison Art is a brand and foundation that creates handmade designs by artists that are prisoners in the jails of Mexico. Besides bad hygiene and corruption, labour opportunities to survive in prison are scarce and underpaid. Furthermore, most ex- prisoners experience great difficulty finding a job and resort back to crime, ultimately ending up back in jail again. Through the Prison Art project Jorge Cueto offers prisoners with talent another chance, a good job with the hopes they will change their life once they leave prison. When you buy a Prison Art bag, the money goes to the artist in prison as well as their family, and you are supporting a program for social reintegration.

Its all about the accessories.
Fringe bags are the ultimate boho bag choice.
Pair with some colourblock shades that can only add to your chill vibes.
Bright, metallic, with bobbles or without, tassel jewelry, specifically earrings, are the new kid on the block this summer, and we love them.
Add a pop of colour to your festival attire, that will be swaying with you to the beat.
