Get Festival Ready With Five Summer Concert Outfit Essentials

Get Festival Ready With Five Summer Concert Outfit Essentials

Festival season is quickly approaching and we can't wait to make the most of the amazing summer events taking place here in Ireland!

If you're heading along to any festivals this summer from Sea Sessions here in Donegal to Electric Picnic, here's a handy list of outfit essentials to take with you.

From sequins to sunglasses, we have all you need at McElhinneys to look stylish and feel comfortable all weekend long.

For every kind of festival-attendee, check out some of our favourite pieces to add to your packing list...


1. Trendy Crop Tops


Crop tops are always a favourite with festival fans and our top pick is this comfortable and stylish bardot knit crop top from Noisy May.

A long-sleeve crop top is ideal for unpredictable weather, when you want to look good and still be ready for any sudden rain showers! 


2. Comfortable Cowgirl Boots


Heeled boots have always been a festival staple for trekking through muddy fields and in particular, cowboy boots have been a big trend in recent years.

Our top pick of funky festival footwear are these cowgirl boots from Zen Collection in this eye-catching gold colour which will surely turn heads as you dance the night away.


3. Sparkly Sequins


If you are looking for that showstopper dress with a festival flare, this dress from SOMETHINGNEW is just the thing.

In this bright purple shade, this sequined mini dress is the perfect eye-catching piece to whip out of your bag when the sun makes an appearance or you could layer up with a pair of bejewelled tights and a denim jacket for those colder evenings.


4. Sun-Ready Shades 




We all know you can't go to a festival without the perfect pair of sunglasses to complete your look.

Pilgrim has a great range of affordable sunglasses available in a variety of shapes, styles, and colours.

These cat-eye effect sunglasses in this fun print would be the perfect addition to any outfit. 


5. Hands-Free Handbags


We all love a belt bag during festival season, as wearing a hands-free mini bag allows you to enjoy your day without having to worry about the safety of your belongings.

This white belt bag by Katie Loxton is our top pick as the neutral colour means you can pair it with any number of looks plus you'll be able to keep an eye on your phone and keys and look stylish at the same time.

If you're heading along to any festivals this summer we hope you found this list helpful to complete your outfits. Remember to enjoy yourself and stay safe!

Until next time,
