Reggae Sumfest which kicked off yesterday is the perfect opportunity to celebrate good music and good times!
Thankfully, it's also one of the times when looking stylish and feeling comfortable is effortless thanks to some of the season's hottest trends - tribal prints, bright neons, dark florals, mon-chromatic duo, cropped tops, high-waist shorts, knitted and crocheted jumpsuits. Hopefully, it can help to inspire some of your own Sumfest looks, and we are eager to see how you put your own twist on your own looks! Stay tuned for our shutterbugs.
Here are your fashion essentials to really enjoy this year's Sumfest.
Flat sandals, laced up flat boots, sturdy wedges and trendy fashionable sneakers can make any outfit stand out in the crowd and endure the long hours of the night. These are great because they are comfortable, fashionable, and look fabulous with a pair of jeans.
If worried about being stepped on, it's probably a good idea to stick to shoes that cover and protect your toes.
Lightweight scarves are essential as they can be used as wraps if the night gets chilly and also be worn as turban buns to ward off the early morning dew.
Choose from a variety of headwear - from floral crowns, to bejewelled bands to beaded Indie-inspired ones. It's a quick way to look summer chic.
'Snap backs' or fedoras
This is another way to add some edge to a summer concert look. It also has the added bonus of not having to worry about your hair falling limp during the event.
Add some bling with a statement necklace to jazz up a basic T-shirt and comfortable distressed jeans. Choose pieces that add some drama but won't weigh you down - think lightweight pieces.
Small cross-body bags, wristlets, or even small leather backpacks can secure your essentials for the night and still be fashionable. Forget the envelope clutches and satchels for this night, or you will be spending the night securing a big bag instead of enjoying the performances.
Jumpsuits or rompers (short jumpsuits) are comfortable and chic. However, if sporting a jumpsuit, make sure it is hemmed to the right length so that it is not sweeping the ground.
