Woohoooo!!! Summer is finally a stones throw away, and Ape and Apple know that one of the best and biggest things to do during the summer is to go to some of those incredible music festivals that we have in the UK; seeing your favourite music artists, spending time with your friends and most importantly having fun in the sun! (Well.. hopefully.. we all know what British Summers can be like!)
And before you attend these partying summer weekends, full of sun, alcohol and music, we think you will agree when we say that you need to get your attire and outfits spot on! Don’t worry Ape and Apple are here to give you some ideas on what to wear so you can look your best whilst raving this summer!
First port of call is to decide what will be going on your feet! Obviously if the British weather lives up to its notorious reputation and rains all the time, wellies will obviously have to be the footwear of choice, but if by chance your musical festival weekend turns out to be “cracking the flags” and bone dry, you have a lot of choice as to what you can wear. Summer footwear is very important as you need to be comfortable but at the same time stylish. On sunny festival weekends away, the obvious choice amongst most guys would be a pair of flip flops, but Ape and Apple believe that plimsoles and espadrilles are standout summer footwear; lightweight, stylish and versatile (what more can you want on your feet!). We think these Lyle & Scott Lace Up Navy Espadrilles would be a brilliant summer pick!
Moving slightly further northwards, it doesn’t take a genius to notice that shorts are staple summerwear and this is no different when you are living it up at a festival. There are many different types of shorts you can wear for instance, a lot of festivals are situated by the coast or a beach, meaning that stylish swimming shorts would be a great choice, or if you want to go a little more smart casual a nice pair of bermuda shorts or chino shorts wouldn’t go unnoticed by those you are looking to impress.
T-shirts, Shirts and Polo Shirts! Unless you are one of those guys who love taking their tops off, then what you are wearing on the upper half of your body is paramount to your image as it tends to be the first thing most people’s eyes are drawn to! Finger’s crossed it is warm and sunny at your chosen festival, this will mean that there is no need to wear any more than a single layer.
Ape and Apple believe that a popular choice this summer at festivals will be either an open collared or buttoned collared polo shirt such as this Franklin & Marshall White Pique Polo Shirt.
Or maybe you would prefer to opt for a loose fitting short sleeve shirt that would be stylish and breezy but most of all attract positive attention. Ape and Apple think that this Carhartt Mable Norwegian Sky Blue Shirt would be the perfect shirt to wear at your chosen summer music festival.
If Shirts and Polo Shirts aren’t your bag, then opting for a sleek and trendy T-Shirt would be the best option. This Lyle & Scott Block Stripe Blue T-Shirt would be a brilliant pick as it is modern, versatile and very light in colour which is a must during the summer (Take note: Summer and dark colours do not go together!)
