Statement trousers, Cher from Clueless and 'All Black Everything': The fashion trends at Electric Picnic

Which trend was Roz Purcell rocking?

ELECTRIC PICNIC IS over for another year but the digital photographs will live forever. 

Here’s the three main fashion trends from the 2018 edition of Ireland’s biggest music and arts festival in Stradbally, Co. Laois.  

1. Statement trousers 

Blogger Zoe Elizabeth might have been wearing camouflage but the bright pink wasn’t gonna shield her in the woods.

Other festival go-ers opted for a Winter theme with red tartan.

Another thing ticked off the list. I’ve finally been to a festival 🤗 ah lads I didn’t know what I was missing!! Had a fecking unreal day. I dunno how you’d do it camping for 3 nights straight because I’m glad I got to get into a warm cozy bed after last night. @ryanmcmullanmusic was unreal as expected! @george_ezra rocked and I cannot get over how well produced @bandpicturethis ‘s whole performance was! From lighting to video scenes and obviously their music 🎶 @epfestival I will definitely be back 🙃 http://liketk.it/2xnFp #liketkit @liketoknow.it Download the LIKEtoKNOW.it app to shop this pic via screenshot.

2. Cher from Clueless  

The presence of 1990s fashion icon Cher Horowitz was very much felt at Electric Picnic this year, with gals opting for a matching jacket and mini skirt look.

3. All Black Everything (ABE)

Black will always go with black, so it’s a fail safe way to look trés chic if you dress head-to-toe in it.

Bicycle shorts, single-handedly made into a trend this year by Kim Kardashian, made an appearance.

Fishnet tights may not make you any warmer but they do add a bit of texture to an ABE

The layers of delicate gold jewellery and an Esmeralda-style waist belt is a simple way to up your ABE game

The headscarf is the ideal saviour for your hair after 3 days of living in a field and having beer thrown over your head at Kendrick Lamar. 

Oh and Repeal sweaters were out in force.

Sharon Horgan and Aisling Bea were spotted hanging out in theirs.
