Festival Wardrobe – It’s all about the Trilby

Everyone is talking about what’s hot for the festival season, who’s wearing what and who will be best dressed. It seems somewhat ironic, but which festival you attend, which bands you like are just as important say just as much about you as the clothes that you wear. Festivals have always been a celebration of music but music and fashion just can’t be separated anymore and musicians have become true fashion icons.

The trilby is one of the most popular styles of hats and you’re going to see it everywhere, but what’s great about the trilby is that there are lots of variations and they’re suitable for both men and women. The trilby is actually a soft felt hat with a deeply indented crown, and a narrow brim. You can find them in a variety of fabrics including straw and with different coloured band. Hats are always quite personal and can create an instant look. It’s an easy way to give an outfit a bit of panache!

I saw some great hats at Ca4la, a Japanese hat shop in east London. (I took these images in their shop).

If you don’t live in London Topman online also has a selection of trilby’s starting at £12!
