Festival season is upon us so #MakeItMonksCross and stand out! We all know the aim of the game for festivals is to awaken your brightest, sparkly inner unicorn and wow the crowd with your fashion sense. So to give you a little inspiration and help you stand out, we’ve compiled our best tips and tricks, along with some fashion advice to help you live your best life this Summer.
If you really want to impress people this summer and you want something that nobody will have then it’s time to get to work. We’ve spoken to the experts at Hobby Craft who have inspired us to create our own festival clothing, from knitted festival tops, tie-dye shirts, crochet bumbags and flower headbands, the festival creations you can do at home are endless!
