Flynn Roddam gives her style choices before she heads down to the festival in Somerset
Living in a busy city like New York, England can seem comparatively quiet and peaceful. However there is one monumental event every year that makes New York look like an old peoples home, this is of course Glastonbury music festival. It’s amazing that what is essentially a giant field in Somerset is attended by 250,000 music lovers and fashionistas every year, and I am no exception. The upcoming days to the festival are usually some kind of mad rush, my friends and I often leave everything to the last minute proving time and time again that our organizational skills are rather poor. Whether it’s deciding who to camp with or which acts to see. Despite this, seamlessly or not it all comes together making it everyone’s favorite festival. Glastonbury usually brings out people’s “cool and laid back” side, no matter who they are or what they do, it is very likely that by the end of the weekend everyone will leave with bed hair and glitter on their cheeks. Yet this casual unkempt
look is not as haphazard as it seems. When asking some of my friends what they would be wearing this year most of them shrugged and exclaimed they had no clue, however I secretly think that their outfits have been meticulously planned for weeks. You also never know what kind of attire the weather will permit, but if the sun is shining it’s the perfect opportunity to show off your pins and get a tan. No matter what the weather this year one thing I know is that I want to stay comfortable and chic. And I’m going to achieve this by wearing flowy dresses, structured print trousers and fun colorful shorts. When it comes to shoes needless to say wellington boots are always a fashion must at Glastonbury.

Putting together the perfect heart melting ensemble is a challenge you don’t have to face alone. Whether you’re spending Valentine’s Day snuggling up with the person of your dreams or searching for love at a party for singles, Maxstudio has the look to ensure at the very least your style has a successful evening. For a first date of dinner and cocktails go formal in a beaded cap-sleeved red dress topped with a metallic jacquard cape. The sophisticated shape and romantic detailing is sure to charm. If attending a couples cocktail party a little black dress with back detail is the look that will remind the party how lucky your date is! A candle light dinner becomes a bit more modern with a double breasted military inspired jacket and a braided open back dress. For a singles mixer choose the flirty heart print halter dress and ditch the overcoat, it is an evening to show some skin. Lastly, if you plan to keep it low-key a rom-com movie going date night need not be casual. Dress it up with an Audrey Hepburn inspired A-Line dress and a pair of booties.
Wherever this Valentine’s brings you, remember, feeling chic and sexy may cause intensified romance!
