Belfast blogger Carolyn Henderson has four simple festival fashion looks for Northern Ireland music lovers.

Festival season is well and truly here with a multitude of eclectic musical tastes, tasty fast food and quirky venues.

If you’re lucky enough to attend one of the many festivals this summer, then you will likely be asking yourself the question, ‘what do I wear that’s comfortable, practical and makes me look good?’

Hopefully these outfit choices will answer all of the above dilemmas. Offering simple styling for those who want something that’s easy to wear, affordable and functional, these looks will see you through any festival or garden party.

1. Simply nautical

Stripes are the quintessential summer pattern. Nautically inspired, this Breton swing dress is the perfect choice for a simple, pared back look. Teamed with a denim jacket, converse pumps and a black leather look backpack, this outfit is ideal for any body shape.

  • H&M top, Miss Selfridge skirt, Urban Outfitters jacket, DKNY cross body bag

Featuring less stripes, but still giving a nod to nautical fashion, this look is youthful and effortlessly cool. Incorporating a utilitarian vibe with the khaki jacket, the Breton top and denim skirt is comfy and suitable for sunshine and showers. Pop on your favourite wellies, if the forecast doesn’t look too favourable.

Mom jeans are showing no sign of disappearing off the high street, so why not opt for arguably the comfiest jean style available and team with a simple tee for laidback festival dressing. A pair of bright sunglasses will lift the outfit by adding a pop of colour.

4. Simply practical

In Northern Ireland, we are never too far from a rain shower, or two, or three or four. Glorious, sunny weather isn’t exactly something that we are used to, so if you’d prefer not to get caught out by sudden showers, then opt for practicality and invest in a good rain jacket.

Inspired by traditional fisherman macs, this seashore inspired cover up will instantly add bold colour to your outfit. Team with a simple, denim dress and classic Rayban shades for a festival ready look.
