Just 11 of the more questionable items classed as 'festival fashion'

A few of the websites seem determined to sell us heels.

THE FESTIVAL SEASON is almost upon us which means that festival fashion is back with a vengeance.

While those people that make an effort at festivals tend to look amazing, some of the items that fashion sites are selling as ‘festival fashion’ are slightly questionable.

Here’s 11 of them.

1. Heels. Lots of heels.

A lot of Boohoo’s festival stuff is actually quite nice if a little futuristic. However, their festival section seems really insistent to sell you heels which won’t last 5 seconds in Stradbally.

2. A rather expensive headdress.

For just a measly €34, Asos will allow you to become the royal of any festival.

3. You can get very sparkly.

For around €200, Asos will allow you to dress up like a disco ball. Think of how many of these sequins will end up in your tent.

4. Or just can be a little fuzzy and colourful.

If you slip then consider this outfit gone because you’ll never get the muck out of that fuzz. At least you’ll be nice to hug though.

5. Or you can dress up like Tarzan.

I promise you this looks warmer than it actually is. There’s a reason you don’t see Tarzan in the midlands in the summer.

6. You can have no pockets.

You know the way we love having no pockets? Well Boohoo have actually gone one step further and CUT OUT the front pockets of these shorts. It’s a disgrace Joe, A DISGRACE.

7. Or you can have these fake cow skin chaps.

You can get the denim shorts separately for €22 so the whole outfit actually costs €64. €64 to look like half a cow. You’d want to watch your arse though, it might get cold.

8. You can get yourself tied up in knots.

This dress is so pretty but can you imagine trying to get this on or off in your tent? You’d have to commit and spend the entire weekend in it.

9. You could decide to go as the Guinean flag.

I hear it’s very in this season to dress up as flags. Leo Varadkar will be attending EP dressed in green, white and orange to represent the Ivory Coast.

10. Have you considered this lovely blue number?

It kind of reminds me of those decorative beads people used to hang from their doors in the 90s.

 11. Or a cheeky sequin lingerie set.

If you can pull this off then you do you but can you imagine wearing this at Body & Soul and it starts lashing and the temperature drops by about 10 degrees? You’re a goner then.
