It's almost time to let loose and embrace the free-spirited style of Splendour in the Grass. Here's how!

Festival season is upon us, and we're ready to start restructuring our entire wardrobe for festival fashion. Whether you're tired of the everyday jeans-and-tee combo you've been rocking lately or just have a serious obsession with all things glitter (it's a real problem), festival season is your opportunity to get a little bit crazy – even if it's just for Instagram.
It's tricky to narrow down your options when there are so many to choose from, so we've done the hard work for you. You're welcome, folks. Time to kickstart your festival season with a guide to the top trends for Splendour in the Grass this year! And, we also have you covered with the ultimate festival inspo for your makeup and shoes.
As if we could start with anything less? Glitter is one of the all-time most popular festival trends, and although we all know that we'll still be finding glittery specks on our bodies a whole month later, we cannot get enough.
Plus it's versatile – body glitter, facial glitter, different colours... the list goes on!
Style the look: Go for all-white or all-black clothes, so that when you use bright, rainbow-coloured glitter it will really pack a punch. Roll in it if you're brave!
2. Body jewels
In a similar vein to the glitter, body jewels have become a crucial component of festivals. You may feel a bit extra, but when you're in the middle of the field dancing with everyone's eyes on you, trust us, you won't be. Just be mindful of where you put the jewels, and you'll be ready to go!
Style the look: Body jewels work best on exposed skin, so opt for shorts and a singlet so you can really go wild. Just remember to be sun safe!

If you're feeling brave, why not take your festival fashion to the next level with a bralette? Guaranteed to grab attention, bralettes are very festival-friendly and will free you up so you can dance the night away without any restriction.
Even better? More space for glitter and body jewels! You may wish to pack nipple covers.
Style the look: Pair it with a mesh dress over the top or simply wear it as a top with some denim cut-offs.

4. White palette
If there's one colour you may be surprised to see out and about at a festival, it's white. As the trend colour for the season (and the perfect colour choice to highlight that festival tan of yours), we wouldn't be surprised if we see playsuits, dresses or even a bralette or two in the shade.
Style the look: You can pretty much pair a hat with just about any outfit. We love the look of the wide-brim fedora with a maxi dress or leather jacket!

5. Ankle boots
When it comes to festivals, footwear is key. If you want to dance the days away in a field in sandals, you're going to have a rough time.
Boots are definitely the best option. Not only are they incredibly practical and sturdy, but you'll also be far more comfortable than anyone else there! Make sure you break them in before the festival because there's nothing worse than blisters and bandaids when all you want to do is dance.
Style the look: Some ankle boots cut you off at an odd point on your leg, so pair your ankle boots with a playsuit or shorts to give off the impression that your legs are longer than they are.

6. Loose playsuit
There's nothing easier to chuck on than a playsuit, and playsuits are a festival staple. They're incredibly comfortable and as long as you're okay with the fact that you have to strip naked any time you go to the bathroom, they're surprisingly convenient! We always recommend playsuits rather than dresses in these situations because weather can be unpredictable at these events, and it will save you from unfortunate Marilyn Monroe dress dilemmas.
Style the look: Go for a playsuit that comes undone at the top and pair it with a bralette. That way you can check two trends off your list in one fell swoop!
Sun safety is paramount, and when you can make it fashion-friendly that's a bonus! Hats are a great way to accent your outfit and we're loving the wide-brimmed look lately. Not only will you be protected from the harsh sun (even in winter, the Australian sun is intense), but you'll look incredible and anyone without a hat will be envying you all day long.
Style the look: Opt for a neutral-coloured hat and you'll be able to rock it with absolutely anything!

8. Vintage denim
Denim shorts are a staple in any wardrobe, and they're an incredibly comfortable festival option. Whether you want to rock shorts, jeans or jackets, soft vintage denim is a classic look that will never get old. Decorate your denim with patches, match them with a band tee or layer it up with your accessories.
If you're worried about looking a bit too plain, this is where you can dress it up with your accessories!
Style the look: Almost anything goes with classic denim, so the sky is the limit!

9. Layering jewellery
If there was ever an opportunity to take full advantage of the phrase "go hard or go home", it's at a festival. Here you can go for broke with all your favourite pieces of jewellery, layering to your heart's content. You'll be catching the sunlight on your accessories all day long – imagine what that will look like when you're dancing!
Style the look: If you're going to make jewellery your statement, pare down the rest of your look with a playsuit or Boho-style dress so it has maximum impact.

10. Naked dresses
Normally naked dresses are a look reserved for the boldest among us – but at festivals, the style is something we can all try! Whether you pop it over a swimsuit, two piece or even just your underwear (because bralettes are in, remember?), naked dresses are always cute and complete the perfect festival look.
Style the look: Layering is key – go crazy with jewellery and accessories, and pop on some body jewels underneath the dress!
