If you live in Swaziland you will know that Bushfire is coming up. I myself have never attended one but I plan to this year. Bushfire has been ranked as one of the biggest festivals in the world by CNN. From what I have researched Bushfire is about great music, food and self-expression.
This post will hopefully give you a few festival ootd ideas for the coming bushfire. The great thing is you can buy these pieces from Tiwi’s Closet. This post will also give Miss Tiwi’s Guide to festival fashion.
What do you wear to a festival?
Festival for me are a chance to play around with fashion. They give you a space to be open and creative. A question I always get from friends and people in general is ‘ What do I wear to Bushfire?’ . It is hot during the day and cools down at night.
Festivals are about embracing your inner flower child. Channel the 70s with a boho chic maxi dress. Or just be a fairy for a day in a floaty dress. It is your time to get creative and colourful so go for it. Here are a few Tiwi’s closet suggestions:
A vintage blouse can work as the focal point of your outfit. You can pair it with jeans, a skirt, shorts just about anything as long as you are creative. Wear it is outwear with layered over another shirt. It is a versatile piece to have. For a festival going bold with your vintage shirt is a must. Let your shirt speak.
Dusters / Kimonos and general light outerwear are the perfect day to night piece. If you don’t want to carry heavy outerwear then this is perfect. You can style light outwear with just about anything. Here are some Tiwi’s Closet options:
From skirts, to shorts , to dresses. Denim is what I call a festival classic. For a more interesting denim outfit go for a skirt, dress or outwear. Denim shorts scream festival. If you can pull it off go for it. Tiwi’s Closet has a few denim pieces you may be interested in. We also have a selection of shorts which are not photographed.
Get creative with print. It’s a festival be bold and bring out your inner 70s icon.
To get any of these products. Visit us at the Vintage Fair on Saturday the 30th of April from 10am to 6pm. We will be at the Checkers Business Park in Mbabane.
