Festival Inspiration: Parklife Edition

7cd56c5c42752e0a5de54df0ca8340a2It’s that time of year again; festivals are about to kick off all over the UK. This weekend some of the OTR team are braving the rain & heading to Parklife, with this in mind our team have been trolling Pinterest for festival inspiration and picking out their favourite pieces from our Festival Collection.

We asked our Styling Assistant, Senior Buyer & Social Media Executive to share their inspiration & the pieces they will be wearing to Parklife this weekend.

Styling Assistant, Kate.

“I am taking the practical approach to Parklife this year, I have heard the weather is going to suck & I am an avid music fan so I don’t want to miss my favourite act due to rain, thunder, sleet or snow. If you, like me, still want to look nice while staying dry the same time the only thing you should be donning is our Clear Matte Finish Rain Mac because its clear you can still wear all those amazing prints and not ruin them with a bulky jacket. My style is very much influenced by the runway, so my inspiration pictures might not fit the festival vibe completely but I like to interpret the runway looks into my everyday life”

Kate’s Picks:


Jacket // Top // Skirt

Kate’s Inspiration:


Social Media Executive, Lauren.

 “It’s festival season, which means it the one time of year I get to full on get my boho on. I am going all out for Parklife, I might even wear flowers in my hair..I don’t care if they get soaked. Matching Florals & Crochet does that not scream festival to you? When I saw that we had the kimono to match these shorts I knew I had to have them, the same with this Cream Crochet Bandeau. I think with the rain I will have to don my wellies but I don’t mind, I kind of like that girly floaty look against some chunky wellies”

Lauren’s Picks:


Kimono // Bandeau // Shorts

Lauren’s Inspiration:


Senior Buyer, Sal

“I struggle when it comes to festival attire, I tend to be a little bit more polished than the typical festival goer. I’m the girl checking her hair in the mirror after 10 minutes in the queue, actually I might even wear my rollers until I get near the front. We have an amazing floral collection on the site at the minute so I feel the need to represent all us girly girls in some florals. I am going to be wearing our Pink Floral Crop & Shorts on the Sunday, the weather is meant to pick up a bit on the Sunday & play its safe with our Neon Bright Playsuit on Saturday. Pardon the Pun.”

Sal’s Picks:

Are you off to any festivals this summer? What are your festival fashion must haves? let us know below!

How We’re Styling…Shorts



Shorts can be a nice change to always wearing a skirt, dress or jeans. They are a summer staple and we are bringing you three very different looks. 


1.Holiday Night Time Look. 

This adorable outfit is perfect for those warm holiday evenings, we love a good boogie while we are on our jollies and we want to look cute and not be over heating. No-one likes a shiny face. These shorts will look super cute on the beach with a black bikini and you can match the top to a nice maxi skirt so the outfit is major versatile. 

2. Festival.

Shorts are a festival must have, these distressed acid wash pair are super comfy and have that perfect festival edge.  Now although we wish that every festival was during a sunny and dry weekend living in the UK that just does not happen, waterproof shoes and coats are a must have. This clear matte mac protects you from that pesky rain yet adds an edge to your festival look, don’t be seen without it this festival season. 

3. Date Night.


This floral two piece is so adorable, we want every night to be date night so we can wear it over and over. Add a simple white cami & matching heels for an effortless yet put together look.

Buyers Pick- Cobalt Blue Jungle Print Tshirt


We asked our lovely Buyer Jodie to pick out her favourite piece from our new in, this amazing Cobalt Blue Jungle Print Tee was her fave piece. 

Jodie Says:

“This is such a versatile piece to have in your summer wardrobe, you can easily pair it with our Blue PVC skirt & heels for a party or stick it on with some Acid Wash Frayed Shorts and wellies for festivals.”

What We’re Packing…Holiday Shop!



Our Holiday Shop is looking mighty fine we have a chosen our top five favourite items that we will be packing to take on holiday with us this summer. Jumpsuits & Playsuits are great to take on holiday as they work in the day and night, wear with flipflops and a big bag for a day trip, or some dressy sandals and some statement earrings for an evening meal. Two pieces can be mixed and matched with other holiday basics, wear this sunflower set co-ordinated or separately. We think the crop will look amazing with a flowy black maxi. No summer beach holiday is complete without the trusty kimono, wear it to the beach, when shopping, cover up those shoulders when your out in the sun or to dress up that basic dress.
