Trendspotting: Summer Style According to Glastonbury
THE STYLE: Oversized t-shirts & chunky sneakers. Billie Eilish is famed for her unique songwriting style and the clothing she chooses to match it with. If you take a look at her Instagram expect to find streetwear, head-to-toe designer looks and, unlike many young pop stars, you won't find Billie donning crop tops and bodycon. Feeling intimidated by venturing into a totally new aesthetic? There’s no need to imitate her style verbatim – try a t-shirt or hoodie dress to mimic the XXL t-shirt look and add a chunky pair of sneakers to complete the look (oversized jewellery à la Eilish optional).
THE STYLE: Mismatched prints. Yes, Jeff Goldblum was at Glastonbury, and it was great. He has played jazz piano for more than 50 years and released his debut album at the end of last year to positive reviews. An unconventional Hollywood star with unconventional outfit choices to match – Goldblum donned a pair of Zebra print trousers and clashing printed summer shirt. He looked nothing short of fantastic and epitomised what summer dressing should be about: fun. With that in mind, mixing prints is an area of dressing many of us are intimidated by, but here’s the secret - the magic sauce of pulling off a look this brazen is having the confidence to match.
THE STYLE: Gold to toe. Kylie is the undisputed Queen of Pop and while under unfortunate circumstances she had to cancel her Glasto set 14 years ago she brought glamour to the stage in a way only Kylie can. Our favourite look from her set? Her gold dress and strappy gold heels: it was classic, classy and mesmerising in equal doses. Fancy dressing like a literal ray of sunshine like Kylie? Get yourself some gold.
THE STYLE: Summer Suits. Tom Odell and Killers frontman Brandon Flowers both chose to don a suit on the Pyramid stage inspiring us to get excited about summer tailoring. With most of us attending a wedding, family-do, the races or any other number of summer events where dressing up is mandatory these two singers reminded us that the summer suit doesn't have to be dull. From a bold shade of blue to delicate eggshell your two-piece (and the accompanying formal footwear) can and should be, filled with personality.
