Festival fashion is in full flow but if you’re lacking inspiration, check out these retro outfit ideas from the Sixties to the Noughties.

Drawing on the past for inspiration is often the key to some of the best festival fashion looks. From Seventies flares and patterns to create Woodstock vibes, to Nineties bumbags and cycling shorts, resurrecting iconic trends from decades gone by is a sure fire way to make sure you stand out from the hordes of other festival goers. 

But as we creep on the cusp of festival season, we’ve decided to take our outfits a little further than picking up some retro sunglasses from Urban Outfitters, and instead have themed four looks head to toe entirely on a different decade. 

Starting with a Sixties boho feel, watch as we work our way through the ages and past the millennium with full-out metallic make-up and glittery garments, picking up tips on how to style yourself this summer.
