Not solely does fashion seize the zeitgeist of the second, but it surely additionally paves the best way for rising sartorial developments.

Italian sophistication with Capri collaring

For creatives preferring crisp collars over sharp cut-outs, haven’t any concern as sophistication enters the competition scene. Nana Judy founder and competition accomplice Glenn Coleman stated the classic open collar design will likely be a “key look” this season. “The open collar fashion supplies the final word relaxed look and has been common abroad via the US and Europe in summer season and now right here to remain in Australia.”

The open collar, typically often known as the ‘Capri collar,’ originated within the ’50s as rich holidaymakers stylishly travelled alongside the iridescent Amalfi Coast. For pop-culture collar references, suppose Jude Regulation in The Proficient Mr Ripley and Roger Moore as James Bond in The Man With The Golden Gun. The versatile and unisex fashion will be worn buttoned like a basic collar or with the primary button undone for a extra casual and “relaxed” look.


Sultry sheer and macrame

For those who’re sheer curious, festivals are the right occasion to debut the ensemble. As fairly presumably probably the most expressive occasion, you’ll be free from judgement (or costume code) to point out off the ladies whereas contemplating whether or not that no-bra life is actually for you. Contemplate Dion Lee’s internet macrame prime that includes pearlescent beads or this beaded bare costume by Wynn Hamlyn worn over a silk slip or singularly for the final word nipple assertion. And in case you’re glad to attend, Bec + Bridge is quickly releasing a brand new vary of sheer and embellished seems as a part of their dazzling upcoming Winter ’23 assortment “EMBODY.” BAZAAR had a primary look on the PayPal Melbourne Style Competition.

Go full disco rodeo with cowboy boots

A sequin costume or colourfully embellished set goes hand-in-hand with cowboy boots at a competition. Whereas the shimmering ensemble has by no means gone out of trend — Meshki have not too long ago launched a show-stopping iteration for his or her festival-inspired vary — our beneficial footwear pairing of cowboy boots has definitely been via numerous fashion cycles. However it’s now being touted because the shoe of the 12 months — maybe on account of a bit Daisy Jones & the Six inspo.

Worn with disco-friendly ensembles (sure, it’s a bit old style Taylor Swift), denim-on-denim, floral summer season attire, or a basic graphic T-shirt — the lookbook is limitless and sensible. You’ll be cozy and secure from mud holes (in case you’re partying in a paddock) whereas giving the “it ain’t my first rodeo” sartorial vibes. We notably lust these rouge embroidered boots by Ganni, which one may elevate by way of a cowboy hat for optimum Western impact.


Crochet something (and every part)

After a number of seasons of absence, crochet is again in full sartorial glory. But when that flower little one way of life isn’t for you, haven’t any concern because the aesthetic goes past its boho stylish associations. Raid grandma’s closet for some cozy outsized knitwear — everyone knows how temperamental the climate is at Splendour within the Grass and Glastonbury — or layer a crochet costume or swimsuit (we love The Wolf Gang’s vary), you may even accessorise crochet as a hat, like Hailey Bieber has.

When creatively mastered, crochet will be Y2K styled, original futuristically or summon these desert rider vibes. It’s additionally a fabrication which will be luxurious and regionally sourced, with many small companies hand-making distinctive designs. Sustainable and guilt-free fashion, we adore it.


Social gathering-friendly parachute pants

Let free in probably the most fun-loving and danceable garment this competition season. The as soon as divisive parachute pants, made well-known by MC Hammer, is again to comfortably take you from day to nighttime. Out there in a wide range of materials, colors, prints — and worth factors — corresponding to Nana Judy’s high-waisted python print Delta pants to The Frankie Store’s outsized cargo pants, the balloon-style bottoms are the final word laidback Y2K look. Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber and extra are all followers of the look, which is greatest paired with a cropped T-shirt to point out some pores and skin and/or chunky footwear so as to add a bit edge.

“The materials and supplies used are our distinctive customized designs: light-weight, breathable, and comfy which makes them good for the competition season,” Nana Judy founder Glenn Coleman stated of their newest vary, which additionally contains numerous parachute pants.

2023 music competition styling recommendation and suggestions

As somebody who has been working the competition trend circuit for nearly 20 years, Nana Judy founder Glenn Coleman clearly is aware of easy methods to do festival-ing the precise approach. He advises these to think about “free fitted pants and layering” this 12 months and produce alongside a polaroid digital camera to seize these candid grainy moments (smartphones are so 2020). However most significantly, Coleman stated attendees to have enjoyable and never “over suppose” their wardrobe — even when they’re going to a jam-packed three-day competition.

“My greatest tip can be to not over suppose it, go together with what you’re feeling snug in, particular person fashion brings confidence and it’s necessary to be you! Our model’s ethos is to encourage confidence and we hope our daring colors and designs will create extra confidence for the wearer.
