Summer Festival Fashion - 2015

With the first weekend of Coachella over and the summer festival season officially underway, I thought I would have a browse through some of the best outfits from the Californian sun for a bit of summer style inspiration. With Coachella attracting countless celebrities and models each year, it’s no wonder it has become so fashion-forward, and with too many outfits to choose from I thought I would pick out my three favourite festival fashion trends from 2015!  


  1.  Dressed all in white

  The first trend that seems to have spread like wildfire is the ‘all in white’ look. From Paris and Nicky Hilton’s formal and put-together look to Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio and friends’ coordinated and casual style, everyone has been wearing the neutral colour! Definitely a favourite of mine and white is the perfect colour to wear to bring out your (probably minimal if you live in England!) summer tan! coachella-fashion-2015-paris-hilton_resize     Coachella 2015 - Week 1 - Day 3    
  1.  Boots, boots and more boots!

  Next up was the constant trend of working boots into your summer wardrobe. Boots are the perfect shoes to wear with everything as they’re stylish and comfortable, especially good for festivals where you’re wandering around and dancing your nights away! While I tend to go for ankle boots in the sun, like Kendall Jenner, you could brave the knee-high trend like Hailey Baldwin; whatever you choose they will be perfect for summer! tassles-vest_resize HaileyB    
  1.  Tassels everywhere!

I think one of the most popular trends of this year’s festival has been the gorgeous leather tassel. Seen on everyone from Fergie to Gigi Hadid, both wearing cut-off shorts with sleeveless tasselled jackets and even Cody Simpson in a tasselled cape, this trend was hard to escape from. What’s great about tassels is that you can go as out there as you’d like, simply wearing some ankle boots with tassels or going all out with tassels everywhere – you’ll look stylish whatever you go for! cody-2015-fashion_resize festival-fashion-2015_resize Fergie-Festival-Fashion2015   Obviously, with all these trends taking hold, you need a handbag to go with the outfit and that's where VidaVida are able to help.  Our range of vintage leather satchels, saddle bags and wonderful tan brown leather handbags all add a finishing touch to these casual summer looks.  You really do need somewhere to hide your festival essentials and we have bags in every shape and size whether you are a light traveler or someone who likes to be prepared for anything.

Gingerline - Spaced Out Fun Secret Dining Events

At the end of last year we went with some friends to Gingerline, an interactive dinner experience that was as strange and exciting as it sounds.  The idea is that you have no idea what you are going to end up doing, so you have to get yourself somewhere on the ‘Ginger Line’ – otherwise known as the London Overground – by 6pm, and await a text telling you where to get off. Once at the station, arrows or hidden clues (in this case yellow cycle padlocks) point you in the direction of your ‘secret location’.  


Descending an external staircase outside what appeared to be a council office building, we found ourselves at an airport check-in desk manned by an orange haired, turquoise suited hostess who looked like something out of Thunderbirds.  So, the evening begun...  


Our dinner was ‘Planet Gingerline’; we found ourselves on the Gingernought, a mysterious spaceship where we spent the evening amazed, entertained and chatting with others sharing our table come space-ship command module. From devouring the delicious four course meal that had been carefully prepared by excellent chefs – my favourites were the Pre-Flight Protein Pack (dehydrated salad and goat’s cheese and mango lollipops) and the delicious white chocolate ‘Jupiter’ with ‘poppin’ space dust’ – to watching the eccentric stewardesses dance, sing and smile, we had a really great time.  This is great food, in a fun and interesting setting with a chance to let go a little and imagine you really are "on another planet".


The highlight of my evening was take-off, where we donned psychedelic glasses and were scanned for disease, which if found, was treated with a large oral injection (which tasted very alcoholic!).


Their latest creation is running currently and, as all visitors are sworn to secrecy so as not to spoil it for future Gingerliners, I have no idea what surprises are in store.  All I know is that there were rumors that you needed to wear wellington boots.  I wonder why?


Each event is different and only on for a limited amount of time so check out their website and be sure to book for their new event which currently runs into early 2015. I would really recommend it and will be sure to book myself once again!
