What jewellery to wear this festival season

What jewellery to wear this festival season

The Festival season has already started in some parts of the country and no longer are these the playgrounds of the very young.  Just as style is ageless so too is the love of music and dancing and so the Baby Boomers (of which I’m one!) and Generation X are just as likely to be found at a music festival as the Millennials!

Not surprising either when you see just how many festivals there are to choose from these days from Folk to Rock, from Blues to Country, there’s something for everyone and whether you go for just a day or the whole weekend, it’s an opportunity to rediscover that rock chick or that boho hippy, let your hair down and celebrate the music in an atmosphere of joy!

Boho style is the most prevalent at festivals.  Lots of denim of course, shorts, floaty dresses but whatever you wear  you can make anything work with the right accessories even if you end up having to wear the old wellies!

Get stacking……

Bracelets and lots of them are a must! For an authentic boho look you can’t do better than Boho Betty. Adorn your wrists (both of them!) in leather wraps, beads and tassels to your hearts content. Here are just a few examples…..

Reeves & Reeves offer a variety of Friendship bracelets to add to your stack in some great colours in both leather and cord.

For touch of class and a meaningful sentiment add in a simple Talisman bracelet from Muru in Vermeil with semi precious stones such as this Feather which is the Talisman of Positivity or the Elephant for Strength and Determination.

…….and layering

So what about necklaces? Again you can turn to Boho Betty for some beautiful, colourful, long beads and tassels to really catch the Bohemian vibe.

Of course you don’t have to go with tassels, you can layer just as well with beads and metal.  Just ensure different textures as well as different lengths and don’t space out too evenly.  You want a relaxed thrown on look.

A favourite of mine at the moment for in the neck is this Venetian Coin style necklace from Mark Watson available in Gold or Silver tone and for a mid length this Gold Patina Ball Pendant.

Earrings with impact

Tassels can also adorn the ears.  Below are examples from Mark Watson and Boho Betty, both of which have matching necklaces!

The best alternative to tassels has to be hoops and for a real impact these Rachel Jackson Punk Hoops are perfect or smaller but nonetheless head turning, these 3D orb earrings also from Rachel Jackson.

Here’s hoping for the sunshine, but if you do end up covered in mud, with these accessories you’ll still look great and they’ll be an asset to your holiday wardrobe too!!
