We love festival season at Superdry – that’s why we created a massive round up of the hottest music events taking place around the world, in 2018.
But the biggest dilemma – after you’ve worked out how to get there and what to pack – is probably how you’re going to pull together your look every day. We’ve got you covered with these essential style hacks.
Women – What to wear to a festival
Keep these style hacks in mind when you’re planning those outfits.
Slip dress for the win
A summer slip dress is the perfect festival look. Wear over a band t-shirt and pair with hi-tops for casual sunny day style or pair with a fringe jacket and wellies if things get a little wet.
Braids are your saviour
Book in with your hairdresser and have your hair braided professionally. They’ll last longer and look incredible. Rock a braided ponytail – great for swinging round when the beat drops. Dress them up with glitter, fake flowers and colour spray. Let them loose for perfect, tousled waves on the last day.
Knee-high socks are essential
If you’re pairing wellies with bare legs you need a pair of knee-highs. These stop any rubbing or redness on your calves and look good too.
All the glitter
We like to think of glitter as a base layer for festivals. A strong highlighter + shimmer eyeshadow + glitter roots and gems is a winning combo. Even if you’re covered in mud, add glitter and all is saved.
Pack your swimwear
Change into your swimming costume if you fancy taking part in the festival mud slide. Expect to get through a lot of baby wipes later cleaning up.
Knot your maxi dress
Maxis look incredible in those professional style shots for the gram but once you hit the main dancing area they can get in the way. Just grab one side, pull up to a length you like then knot in place.
Opt for the all-in-one
It might make using those grim toilets a bit unnerving – but a jumpsuit makes getting ready easy. A playsuit style is great for summer festivals – pair with a lightweight jacket once evening rolls around.
Men – What to wear to a festival
Guys, follow these style hacks for a good looking weekend.
A hat is an essential
Baseball cap, trucker hat or fedora – whatever your style, a hat is a must. It’s great whatever the weather – shielding you from sun and rain.
Cargo shorts are a winner
Ditch the chinos or the denim shorts for the day event – this year, make cargo shorts your go-to when it comes to your festival style. They usually come with a load of pockets – meaning you can leave the bag behind and still take everything you need but hands free.
Plaid shirts are the ideal layer up
Don’t fancy packing a waterproof? A plaid shirt is ideal for if the clouds go in. Tie around your waist with a vest top and you’re good for anything.
Skip the wellies – go for leather
Don’t fancy trekking through the crowds in bulky wellies? Leather work boots are your best call. They look great with everything and are still waterproof.
Embrace the BB cream
This stuff is a miracle. It moisturises your skin and acts like SPF – plus it balances out your complexion, so no one will know if you’re feeling it from the night before.

Ariana is the sixth sense of music – bringing light, sound, dance, symbolism, and allsorts into her performances, Ariana and The Rose goes far beyond the record to make it as immersive as you can get. The New Yorker recently visited London, and we jumped at the chance to join her glitterati.
Hi Ariana! Please introduce yourself in an unusual way – pretend you’re speed dating with Superdry!
Hi I’m Ariana! I’m obsessed with chapstick and the new Queer Eye for the Straight Guy on Netflix and I make synth pop music.
You’re known and loved for the immersive ‘light & space’ event that you take around the world. What’s it all about?
Light & Space is an immersive live music party that combines a live concert, immersive theatre and a futuristic disco. The idea grew out of all of the amazing 360 experiences I was going to see, like Secret Cinema in London and feeling like someone needed to apply this kind of thinking to music. Until recently, people have always had somewhere to go to discover new music in person – clubs like Fabric in London, or NYC Danceteria in the 80s. Light & Space is a place that pulls from the history of those kinds of clubs while looking to the future of performance by incorporating these immersive aspects, all rolled into a very glitter filled galactic disco.
Gig or experience that changed your life?
Seeing Elton John at Madison Square Garden really imprinted the power music has to unify people on my heart. Also, living in London for 3 years was one of the most exciting, scary and best experiences of my life.
Your EP is called Retrograde – after a quick dictionary double check, this means to move backwards. Is backwards the new forwards?
I definitely think forwards is always the best direction! The music on that EP was written during a time that my life felt like it was going every which way and those songs felt like a real snapshot of who I was at the time. I’m definitely in a place of forward motion now though and that is reflecting in some new music I’m working on too, which feels really good.
Your single How Does That Make You Feel is a perfect slice of interpretive-pop – what’s the story of this song?
Thank you! I actually wrote most of that melody in the shower! I wanted to write something about a woman being in control of how her sexuality was being interpreted. Asking someone “how does that make you feel?” can be pretty aggressive. I loved combining a really feminine feeling melody with an in your face lyric. We can be vulnerable and strong at the same time.
If we were to liken you to a futuristic Kate Bush, how would that comparison make you feel?
I would feel very into that comparison, thank you so much! I have spent so much time delving to her artistry and how detailed she is. I’m so inspired by musicians that have pushed themselves into an art house world and she is most definitely the queen of that.
What makes you feel at your happiest?
My dog, Fredo. He’s not a registered therapy dog but I’m thinking he should be.
What makes you feel oh so angry?
People who walk slowly and block the sidewalk!
Throwback moment to one of your first releases, Supercool – coolest place you’ve been, coolest person you’ve encountered, and what you find seriously uncool?
Oh, I love this question!
Coolest place I’ve been: Tie between Hanoi, Vietnam and on a glacier in Patagonia Argentina.
Coolest person I’ve encountered: I’d say my Dad is one of the coolest people I know.
Seriously uncool: People putting other people down I think is pretty uncool. There is no time for that!
Your music videos are full of expression and unconventional dance, in the best possible way! Are you a cover girl for standing out from the mundane?
Thank you! I just try to create imagery that I love and feel passionate about and hope it resonates with other people. I think audiences have a hunger for art that challenges them and is unconventional because it allows us to explore those parts of ourselves. If I can make something that does that for someone, then I feel like I’ve done my job.
Favourite places to go out when you’re in London?
Camden Passage is my favourite little place to hang out whenever I’m in London. There are these amazing vintage shops and a restaurant that does the best Scandinavian footage.
I also love Bath, it’s perfect for a little weekend trip.
Hidden gems and places to check out in New York?
There’s an amazing café in Greenwich Village called Café Reggio that appears as a coffee place but secretly makes amazing pesto pasta. One of my favourite boutiques is in Soho, called American Two Shot, which is a combination of vintage and one of finds, I always discover really unique pieces there. The Bethesda Fountain in Central Park is one of my favourite spots. Anytime I have a friend visiting from out of town I take them there, it’s just classic New York.

Black jeans are a wardrobe essential. Skinny, slim-fit, spray-on – it’s easier than ever to find a style that suits your vibe. But what do you wear with them? Check out our 2018 round up of outfit inspiration:
What to wear with black jeans
Black jeans can work for pretty much any event. Dress down with a logo t-shirt at the weekend – dress up with a crisp, white shirt on weekdays.
Bold logos and strong graphics work well with black jeans. The denim lets your tee do all the talking. Opt for a strong red to work against the black. Look for a logo that stretches across the chest. Finish with navy trainers and a rucksack for an easy weekend look.
Dressy enough for a date, easy to wear for hanging out with mates. A check print is the best choice for a casual shirt to pair with black jeans. Green, red or blue is best. Opt for a long sleeved shirt you can roll up to the elbows for a laid back vibe. Wear this open with a white V-neck t-shirt underneath – or tie around the waist for grunge vibes.
Arm and chest day going well? Let everyone know and pair a snug t-shirt with black skinny jeans. Low rise slip-ons nail this look. Add a baseball cap then sling on a pouch bag and you’re good to go.
Camo does all the hard work. Pair with black skinny jeans and white kicks. Look for khaki shades and oversized fits featuring strong collars and maybe a military style patch or two. Throw on over a grey fitted jumper on colder days.
Striped polo shirt
You might think they’re preppy but you need a striped polo shirt in your wardrobe. Pastel shades – yellow and blue – add a softer vibe with slim-fit black jeans. Great for meeting your girl’s parents or visiting your Gran at the weekend. Just remember – the smarter the occasion, the stronger the collar needs to be.
A grey blazer over a long sleeve t-shirt is the ideal combo with black jeans. Add a pair of boots and you’ll be dressed to impress for any meeting at work.
What shoes to wear with black jeans
- Brown brogues
- White trainers
- Sport trainers
- Chukka boots
Black jeans with brown shoes are not the no-no you might think they are. A pair of tan brogues paired with black skinny jeans and a white Oxford shirt make for a great combo.
Can’t go wrong with a pair of these. They work with any style of black jean – whether you prefer keeping it baggy or wearing denim that looks sprayed on. Look for tennis shoe or plimsoll styles for everyday dressing.
Bold colours and sporty designs work best with skinny black jeans and a loose fit t-shirt. Great for your weekend plans.
Suede, chukka style boots are the ultimate smart/casual footwear. Tan or grey go with everything and look great with black jeans.
Sliders + sports socks + black jeans = laidback athleisure vibes. Pair with a sports t-shirt – rep one of our retro style football tees. Perfect for weekends spent in the pub when the World Cup starts.
So, styling black jeans is simple. Mix and match these items and you’re good for anything.Read more

Superdry is proud to support Team UK as they begin their journey to the Invictus Games Sydney 2018.
Today the team, delivered by Help for Heroes, were joined by Prime Minister Theresa May and former Team UK captains for their first official team photograph as they were formally announced at Horse Guards Parade.
Yesterday all 72 members of the team received their Village Kit at the Superdry Store in Regent Street.
“As soon as I arrived, I thought ‘wow’ and then coming into the building to see what Superdry had done was fantastic,” said Vice Captain Spencer Bull.
Spanning two floors of the Regent St. Store, each team member had their own individual locker collection area where they got to try on their Village Kit. It was an incredibly emotional, uplifting experience for the team to get to know each other as teammates and see their official kit for the first time.
Team UK Chef de Mission Jayne Kavanagh congratulated the team, commenting on the Invictus spirit and the fantastic journey that awaits each competitor.
“We’ve got a military mentality and that’s one thing we all hold,” said Team Captain Mark “Dot” Perkins. “We’ve got to tap into that to make everyone gel and bond and that’s one thing military people do very well.”
Vice Captain Michelle Turner agreed with Mark on the military spirit and camaraderie of the Games.
“A lot of people here today didn’t get through to Toronto but they picked themselves up, didn’t give up, and carried on,” she said.
Superdry is the Official Sportswear Partner for the UK Team on their journey to the Invictus Games Sydney 2018. The technology used in the kit is the same technology that features in the full mens and womens Superdry Sport range.Read more

Not jumping on a plane? It’s cool. There’s still plenty of places to head to, right here in the UK.
The best location in the UK for a night out
Obviously London had to make the list. It’s the powerhouse of partying. Here’s the plan for two nights of fun on your summer break in 2018:
Rock up on the train after work and head to your hotel/Airbnb. Choose somewhere central – you could stick close to Kings Cross or head to London Bridge or Covent Garden.
Get down to Shoreditch and walk around the corner from the tube to Dinerama – an installation made up of shipping containers featuring bars, street food and shops that gets busy every weekend. Dig into massive burgers and freshly cooked pizzas or vegan and veggie options – before sampling the slushy vodka cocktails or Tiki themed drinks upstairs.
We recommend starting off at Bunga Bunga Covent Garden. Unlimited prosecco and bellinis within two hours? Sign us up.
Once you’ve had your fill, head to Hyde Park and grab some lunch on the way. If it’s a nice day, hire a bike and take a ride round before chilling out on the grass and soaking up the sunshine.
As the evening rolls around get back to the hotel to change. Hop on the tube down to Bounce in Shoreditch for a few games of ping pong, food and some drinks. You’ll need to book ahead. Once you’re done get out on a bar crawl around the area – Trapeze bar, XOYO and Trafik are worth a mention.
The best destination for beaches in the UK
Don’t fancy missing the sun, sea and sand? Opt for the South Coast instead of hopping on a plane. You might even – so pack your swimwear. We recommend booking a week out of your diary to check this place out.
It’s no secret Cornwall is the best place in the UK when it comes to its beach scenes. Here are the ones to add to the to-do list:
Hit up this beach for all things surf – there’s plenty of swells to get out on.
Yep, you’re still in Britain. But you won’t believe it when you get to Kynance. This beach is a stunner with white sand, turquoise water and the best place to explore with your mates.
The best beach to set up for the day – with plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby to head back to once you’re done.
The best city for foodies in the UK
If you love food then Edinburgh is the perfect destination. It’s main streets are lined with top restaurants and bars to try out during a summer break. It’s also a hotspot for food festivals serving up dishes from around the world. Check out these awesome eateries.
Try haggis spring rolls at Whiski Rooms
Be brave and give a spring roll filled with this Scottish treat a go. Plus, this location offers 300 types of whisky to sample.
Eat homemade ice cream at Mary’s Milk Bar
If the weather warms up this place will be heaving. All the ice cream is freshly made every morning with flavours like baked pear and dark chocolate or Guiness and chocolate. No basics here.
Dig in to authentic Thai street food at Ting Thai Caravan
This restaurant started out as a pop-up restaurant and you’ll be glad it set up permanently. Order noodles, curries, soups and tonnes of sides. It’s all so good you’ll think you’re on your gap year again.
Try something new at Henderson’s Vegan
Wanna try going plant based? This is the best place for grub in Edinburgh. You can have everything from vegan pancakes to lasagne to brownies. There’s even vegan haggis.
The best place for a sport holiday in the UK
Not only is it incredible to explore but the Lake District is also home to the Keswick Mountain Festival. This three day event has something for everyone – including live music and activities such as scrambling and windsurfing. If you’re feeling strong enter into one of the triathlons or open water swims taking place. It’s the perfect destination if you love a sporty holiday.
Not into walking boots? If you were tempted by Cornwall, hit up the Mount Hawke skate park while you’re there. It’s the perfect location for this alternative sport. They also offer surf lessons in their indoor wave pool – plus you can camp on site.
What to pack for a UK summer break
Basically – be prepared for anything.
- Waterproof jacket – Something showerproof and lightweight is fine.
- Sun cream – If you’re out all day put some on anyway – even if it’s a cloudy forecast.
- Day clothes – You need outfits that you don’t mind wearing and walking in. Basic t-shirts, jeans and trainers.
- Evening clothes – If you’re heading out to eat or to bar hop for the evening you wanna look good. Guys, chino shorts are a good call to pair with a polo shirt. Girls, can’t go wrong with a summer dress and sandals.
- Baseball cap – Great for hiding the wild night before if you’ve checked out the nearest bar.
- Rucksack – Keep everything close by. Plus, you don’t need to lug bags around if you’re souvenir shopping.
This year, book a summer getaway in the UK – who needs to go abroad?

Everyone is talking about Abisha. By tearing the R&B rulebooks up, expressing a truly individual style, and generally having that je ne sais quoi of coolness, you’ll be hearing a lot more of Abisha. With the release of new single Project X, and following her attendance at our SuperdrySounds launch party, we caught up with the star.
How did Abisha become ABISHA the artist?
Well, I met my producers 4 years ago, completely by chance in a bar in New Cross. I began working with them pretty soon after and we experimented with discovering my musical and writing style. I guess it all started then, but I wouldn’t say I really became ABISHA the artist until I wrote ‘All That’. That was the first track we finished when I thought, ‘Yeah, this is my style’.
What are your fondest music stories and inspirations growing up?
My fondest music-related memory from my childhood is definitely singing karaoke with my friends every single day on my VJ Starz Karaoke machine and making up dance routines. We used to sing the Spice Girls and Britney Spears over and over. As I got a bit older, I began to discover artists and idolise them – that’s when I realised that music is what I actually wanted to do.
Are you psyched to be performing live on the big stages? How do you prep for this sort of anticipation?
I’m SO psyched! I can’t wait to feel the insane energy from a huge crowd. The feeling of an audience singing your lyrics back at you must be beyond crazy too. To prep for that, hours and days and months of rehearsals non-stop. I’ll be super super nervous but as soon as I’m on stage with my band, I’m sure the nerves will turn into adrenaline and excitement and I’ll be living my absolute best life.
What do you write songs about?
I write songs about a lot of different things really. It’s quite difficult for every song to not turn into a song about love, in some way or another. I write about my personal experiences and relationships a lot because I like to tell a story that people can relate to and connect with. But I also write from others’ perspectives if I have an idea that I can’t relate to; it’s all just about being able to tell a story. The main thing that I want to achieve through song writing is being accessible and relatable as an artist, and being able to help others through a situation by showing them there’s always a happy ending, and if there isn’t, you grow from your experiences.
All That sounds like ‘minimal R&B’ – are you establishing a new sound? If so, it’s working!
Haha, I’m not intentionally creating a new genre, but I like the sound of that. When writing songs, I want them to not sound like everything else out there so I tend to break the rules slightly of a ‘traditionally good’ R&B song whether it’s through the structure of the song or the production of the track. I want my music to stand out and for people to think, ‘That’s different, I like that’. If everyone writes songs that sound the same, music will be stuck in a cycle of same-sounding songs and artists until the next generation of musicians create something new, so why wait?
Talk us through the music video concept – is sepia red the colour of the month?
The music video for All That is very minimal and kept very simple to symbolise the entrapment being described in the song. The red is a metaphor for love and also pain, maybe even danger. Red is a colour that can be interpreted in a multitude of ways so it’s really good to use when visually portraying emotions in music. I did see a lot of red vibes in music videos recently so it definitely could be the colour of the month!
If you could have ‘All that and more’, what would Abisha’s excess in life be?
It would HAVE to be holidays in the sun. I don’t think there’s anyone on the planet who loves the sun more than me. It seriously recharges my soul and my energy. The dream would be to spend my time writing songs in villas with huge pools, by the sea in the most beautiful locations and scorching heat, surrounded by amazing people!
You’ve got an epic personal sense of style going on. How would you sum it up?
My style is really important to me. Not because I care about what I look like or if people like what I’m wearing but, for me, it’s one of the main ways that I express myself. I believe that how you dress instantly tells a story about you, before you even say a word. My style is pretty much just being comfortable (I don’t like wearing anything that restricts my movement at all because I’m constantly moving around or fidgeting), and whatever I feel good in. Usually, topped with a hat and some kind of trainer.
We recently invited you into the Superdry Regent Street Flagship to check out the new collection – were you pleasantly surprised, and what did you pick out?
I was really pleasantly surprised, I left with two huge bags full! I picked out an amazing leather jacket, a really cool black body (leotard) and some jumpers and joggers which I love wearing to the studio because they’re super comfy.
Project X sounds secretive – can you reveal what it’s about?
Project X started off as a sort of experiment – I wanted to create something that was completely unstructured and free. The track is about being completely besotted by someone, and hoping that they feel the same way back, but it’s also hugely laid back and massively flirtatious.
The song is sensual and stripped back – are you the most musically chill person out there?
I’m a really chilled person, so this definitely is probably reflected in my music. I enjoy writing laid back songs and creating to chilled beats, I think I’m better at that than up-tempo songs because it’s easier to create deeper and more sensual melodies, which, to me, makes a song feel more meaningful.
With a song that sounds so unique, how do you see yourself performing it – will there be interpretive and offbeat moves to accompany?
I want to make sure that when I perform Project X live, the vibe and ambience of the performance matches that of the track. Maybe I’ll throw in some moves, we’ll see!
What is a mystery you’ve always wanted to uncover?
The universe, everything about it intrigues me. The beauty of the ocean, the sky when it’s so blue. How can something be so naturally beautiful?Read more

Stuck for Saturday night plans? We’ve got everything you need here to plan the best night – whether you’re a dance till 3am kinda girl or just want a chilled one. Don’t forget to hit up our new season ranges once you’re done – to ensure you look boss whatever route you take this weekend.
If you’re more of a homebird – these are plans for you:
The chill night in
Pyjamas on. Pizza ordered. Ice cream chilling in the freezer. This night is going to be more lit than the scented candles you’ve just set up on the coffee table. You know that Saturdays can be all about some me time. The week’s been stressful and you deserve to watch as much trashy television as your heart desires. With this kind of Saturday you can go it alone or you can get a couple of your girls round – the choice is yours.
The impromptu house party
Free house? Blast the Whatsapp group and get everyone round. Invite partners too and plan a girls vs boys beer pong tournament – loser has to do a dare. Keep the fridge well stocked with drinks and the party playlist going until the early hours – or until the neighbours knock on the door. It’s the perfect combo of chilling out but still making a night of it. Dress up for the occasion in an off the shoulder dress that still looks good with a hoodie later – when you’re hanging on the sofa with your crush.
The garden party
We’re not talking tea and scones here. Light that fire pit and get the garden games out ready to play – with a few bottles of wine on top. Swingball is a fun idea or if you’ve got space set up a badminton net and get the rackets out. Garden games + drink + best mates = a night to remember. Get the tunes going and assign someone to keep score.
Prefer your Saturday nights out in town? Here are some easy to follow itineraries to consider.
The classic club night
Prinks and a taxi into town at 11pm. Get the girls round to prep for the night ahead with a prosecco or two and get the tunes on. Most of the evening will probably be spent swapping and changing your outfit, but you definitely can’t go wrong with a jumpsuit and heels combo. Get into the club before the entrance price goes up and sample the cocktail list before taking over the dancefloor. Let your girls know if you’re going home without them – and give them the deets in the morning.
The nearby gig
Looking for some fresh tunes to add to your playlists? Check out who’s playing at the nearest open mic night and discover some new talent. Not sure where to start? Hit up our SuperdrySounds page and check out who we’re repping at this year’s biggest festivals. Once you’ve found your gig, get dressed up for the occasion – we totally recommend a jeans and a nice top – then head out for drinks after. Saturday sorted.
The old school Saturday
Remember when bowling and hanging out down the ice rink were your main Saturday night plans? Call up your squad and plan a trip down memory lane. But this time – you can head out for drinks after instead of your mum picking you up at 8pm. Hit a few strikes. Smash your bestie at mini golf. Take in a super late night movie at your local cinema. Get nostalgic this Saturday but be sure to dress to impress like you did when you were 15 and wanted to show off what you could do with your new eyeshadow palette.
So, which one is it? Couch or out out? Let us know what you’ve got planned and tag us in your Superdry looks on Insta with the hashtag #mysuperdry.

We’re loving spring here at Superdry but we know it’s a real pain when the morning starts off sunny and by the afternoon you’re dodging puddles. That’s why we’ve put together this guide on what you need to add to your spring wardrobe in 2018 – capsule wardrobe style – to nail the season’s trends and be prepared for anything.
The spring base layer
Your spring wardrobe deserves a decent base – that you can layer up on if the weather takes a turn. Here’s what to pick up – for guys and girls.
Girls – The summer dress
Don’t let the name fool you – the summer dress is the perfect base layer all year round, especially in spring. Whether you opt for a skater style or a maxi length – pair one of these dresses with a lightweight jacket and boots for easy spring style. Alternatively, chunky knitwear is your best friend if we suddenly start seeing snow in late April – well, you never know.
Guys – The polo shirt
Polo shirts are now available in the best pastel shades – ideal for nailing all the spring vibes. Look for pinks, blues and even yellows for polos that do all the talking. These pieces work best when paired with slim fit jeans – or even chino shorts if you’re feeling brave. Check out our guide on how to wear a polo shirt here on the blog – if you’re new to the world of pique and vintage fits.
The spring night out extra
It’s not quite beer garden weather but you’ll definitely be heading out more in the evenings and weekends – now that spring is here. But what should you add to your wardrobe – ready for this season’s lineup of partying?
Girls – The all-in-one
No fuss – an all-in-one addition to your wardrobe makes pulling together a look for the weekend easy and is the perfect alternative if you aren’t much of a dress girl. It could be a bold, printed jumpsuit that always looks good with your fave heels or a bodysuit to wear with high waisted jeans and boots for casual bar hopping style.
Guys – The smart/casual t-shirt
Take a slogan t-shirt then throw this on with skinny jeans and leather-look trainers and you have one of the easiest – and stylish – looks for the weekend. We’re loving vintage style tees with snug fit arms and well-worn materials. Round necks are great for vintage vibes or opt for a V-neck for a flattering cut that makes your chest and shoulders look pumped.
The casual spring go-to
For those days when you want to look good with minimal effort – these are the pieces that need adding to your wardrobe.
Girls – The boyfriend tee
T-shirts have had an upgrade with boyfriend fits that work for any shape or size. Oversized but still working with all your curves – these are the perfect t-shirts for any spring look. Pair with cut off jeans and trainers for easy to throw on style that looks good whatever or throw on under a slip dress for more of a grunge look. Add a camo print jacket to tap into this season’s biggest trends – khaki is a winner in a military style cut.
Guys – The cargo shorts
Temperature double figures? Crack out those shorts then. Cargo shorts are great because they feature plenty of pockets – meaning you can keep everything close by and leave the rucksack at home.
The transitional addition
Spring hotting up? BBQ beckoning? Time to get those transitional wardrobe pieces in.
Girls – The cami top
Camis work for all weathers – they’re easy to slip under jackets but they still look good on their own. Pair one of these tops with skinny jeans or a mini skirt for easy spring style. Finish off with a denim jacket. We’re loving camis with embellished edges – opt for lace, frills and pom poms to add a little interest to an everyday look.
Guys – The summer-ready slip-on
Spring style is here and ready to go – check out our new season collections on the site and pop back here for more on trend inspo and looks.

Still don’t know which festival to get tickets for in 2018? You might have missed the mark on some but don’t worry here are the events you can still nab a ticket for, in the UK.
Festivals you can still get tickets for in 2018
1st – 2nd June, Brockwell Park, London
Buy tickets here
For all things alternative and indie – Field Day is the place. This year’s event has got some awesome artists playing. Check out the SuperdrySounds stage too – featuring exclusive, up and coming music.
Field Day festival headliners 2018
- Erykah Badu
- Fever Ray
- Ezra Collective
- Children of Zeus
What to wear to Field Day festival
The weather in London could be unpredictable – expect a bit of sun with some rain thrown in.
Girls – base your look around your waterproofs. It’s a rule that no matter the weather you’ve got to get your pins out at a festival. So while a waterproof jacket in a strong print is a must – you can still wear it over a summer dress. Finish with plenty of glitter and keep your sunnies close – just in case.
Guys – layers are a must at Field Day. So it’s a good idea to pop those shorts on with a plain t-shirt, plus a waterproof jacket. You can always tie this around your waist if things get warm. Trainers you don’t mind getting muddy and sports socks finish things off.
24th – 26th August, Richfield Avenue, Reading
Buy tickets here
Reading has lost its rock edge in recent years but now offers a real mixed bag of music – perfect if you’re heading there with a big group of mates. There are some massive acts this year – making this three day event a must.
Reading festival headliners 2018
- Kendrick Lamar
- Dua Lipa
- Post Malone
- Fall Out Boy
- Panic! At The Disco
- And most importantly – Big Shaq.
What to wear to Reading Festival
Weather wise – expect rain but with some decent sunny spells thrown in.
Girls – shorts and a band tee are a staple look for this event. Let everyone know who you’ll be screaming for on Sat night. Keep the same shorts on for the weekend but mix and match your t-shirts. Tie a plaid shirt around your waist and grab a lightweight (waterproof) jacket to throw on if the weather turns. Go for ankle boots over wellies.
Guys – t-shirt + board shorts = spot on Reading festival look. The shorts are breathable and keep you cool but can still look pretty smart. Wear with a plain or printed t-shirt – depending on your vibe. Avoid a rucksack though – grab a bum bag but wear this diagonally across your body for easy access.

Girl – don’t be afraid to dabble in glitter and stick on gems. Embrace sparkle everywhere – check out one of our fave bloggers Sophie Hannah for a festival look perfect for this festival. Clothing wise – pair a cropped top with denim mini skirt and chunky ankle boots. Tie a denim jacket around your waist for later.
Guys – cargo shorts and a printed tee are all you need for a wild weekend. Pair these with work boots to last on your feet all day and ditch a jacket for a bold shirt to layer up with. Take a round neck jumper too – pull the shirt collar through if you wear it later when it gets cold.

What you wear to a spring wedding should reflect your personal style and make you feel confident – whether you’re there all day or just for the evening.
This quick guide should help you pull the right look together and sort what you need. Before you go too crazy on your next online shop, there are some things to double check first. Now you just need to sort a date.
What to ask before buying a spring wedding outfit
Is there a theme?
Themes are a big trend for the modern wedding, and brides and grooms often encourage guests to get involved with outfits that match. Check the invite – if it’s a black tie or masquerade style do, you’ll need to pick out a look to work with it.
What are the groomsmen wearing?
Twinning has no place at a wedding. It’s a good idea to avoid wearing the same colour accessories or suit than the groomsmen – if you aren’t part of that group. Rocking up in a grey suit with a purple tie that looks just like theirs is going to feel real awkward later.
Where is the wedding?
The location obviously makes a huge impact on your ensemble.If it’s a beach wedding, you may be able to get a way with shorts. Marquee in the middle of a field? Your shoes need to fit the part. Double check where the venue is first before making your decision and ensure you’re dressed for the location.
What’s the weather going to do?
Yeah, you’ll probably be inside for most of the day but you still want to wear something that’s either going to keep you cool when the temperature rises or keep you covered if it’s wet or cold. Spring is a tough time of year to predict but here’s how to piece together the perfect spring wedding look.
What to wear to a spring wedding
A lightweight suit
You don’t want a suit that’s too heavy – as spring usually means warmer days. Be bold and consider mixing and matching colours – maybe pair a blazer with slim fit chinos in a beige or grey colour.
There’s no need to go for a three-piece style if you’re a wedding guest. Stick to just a blazer, shirt and trousers plus whatever accessories you fancy dressing it up with.
A standalone shirt
Don’t let your suit carry you all day – pick a shirt that can stand on its own too. It could be a bolder colour – think blush pink or purple – or a strong print.
Swap your tie for something bolder
Keep things classy and ditch the classic tie. Grab one of these instead:
- Bow tie – Smart, simple and a little quirky, these are the best choice if you fancy leaving the usual neck tie behind.
- Neck scarf – Choose one in a subtle print and tie this around your neck in a knot. Or, wear it under your shirt, poking out at the top in an Ascot style – be sure to leave a couple of buttons undone.
- Bolo tie – Macklemore and Bruno Mars are huge fans of this trend. This ‘tie’ is more like a necklace that sits below your collar and features some sort of stone or pendant detail with hanging tassels.
- Collar chain – These accessories are very popular with a pin or clip you can snap on each of your collar points and a chain hanging between. They come in a huge range of styles – look for an independent illustrator or design on a site such as etsy for an original look.
Pocket handkerchief or buttonhole?
If you’re there as a friend or have been invited with your partner stick to the pocket handkerchief but if the bride and groom are family or close friends there’s no harm in wearing a buttonhole. You can buy artificial ones ready made – or speak to a florist.
Go for brogues
While you can’t go wrong with black boat shoes – brown or tan brogues are a good call for a spring wedding. They’re just a little bit more low-key with a fresh spring vibe. And they look great with shorter or rolled up trousers – we’re all about showing off a bit of ankle.
What colour suit should you wear to a spring wedding?
Still going for a classic suit? Here are your options when it comes to colours:
- Navy – This smart blue looks great in spring, pair it with a pastel shade tie and a white shirt to tap into those seasonal shades.
- Grey – Choose something on the lighter end of the scale – you want a brighter grey for the fresh, spring vibe.
- Pastel – Feeling bold? A baby blue, lilac or pastel green suit will definitely turn heads and looks great for spring. Try not to upstage the bride though.
What if the wedding is informal?
If the bride and groom are going for a lowkey event, you can definitely pull together a relatively smart look with a polo shirt and chinos. We’ve got an in depth guide on how to wear a polo shirt here on the site and what to look for when it comes to wearing one for a smarter event.
If that’s too dressed down for you a long sleeve shirt – minus the blazer and tie – is a good call.
Can you wear black to a spring wedding?
Yeah – of course. A black suit looks good no matter what the occasion. Maybe add a little spring touch with a subtle printed tie or a pocket handkerchief.
