Festivals have become so much more than just about a great line up of performers. In recent years we can attribute some of the best fashion, makeup and hair looks from festivals with music fans going all out to create fashion forward looks you could see front row at a gig or strutting down the runway of fashion’s top brands.
Thanks to Afterpay, we got a firsthand look inside Brisbane’s Laneway Festival to discover the looks on the scorcher of a day. Sun safety was top of mind with lots of hats and sunnies on display of festival goers, but not straying away from the fashion. Less was more when it came to attire, with fans dressing for the heat in crop tops, skirts, and bralettes.
Monochromatic looks were a fashion staple, with pops of colour in every direction, from bold cobalt blues to an array of hues of greens and pastel pink. Festival goers dressed to the nines and did their best to keep cool in the 35-degree summer heat.
Slicked-back buns and braids were the go-to hair looks for style, comfort and ease. We noticed some festival goers even added earrings to their braids for an added sophisticated edge you would expect to see on the runway at New York Fashion Week.
All in all, the day was filled with music, sun and memorable fashion looks to commemorate the summer of 2023 that we feel will carry us well into the next summer of fashion and beauty trends.
