It may not be number one on your list of packing priorities if you’re heading off to one of this weekend’s numerous festivals. But think again. We believe the right underwear can greatly enhance your festival experience. Depending on where you’re headed, here are Fox & Rose’s top tips for a successful weekend of revelling. After all you never know when your lingerie might make a cheeky appearance.
1) Reading Festival – ageing rockers, Guns ‘n Roses, are back to wow the crowds with their raucous renditions of classics like ‘Sweet Child of Mine’. Make sure you ‘Use Your Illusion’ well with some rock chick pieces. We recommend selecting an edgier, fashion inspired look to create maximum impact. Lascivious’s eye catching Milla set is just the thing. Directional, sharp, and constructed from stretch silk satin and powernet. Perfect.
2) Notting Hill Carnival – West London’s pride and joy, vibrant and world famous in its celebration of all things Caribbean. The perfect opportunity to slip into one of Beautiful Bottoms’ colourful creations and samba on down.
We love the comfortable leaf halter bra and matching knickers: the silk georgette cups are lined with an extra layer of silk to bolster support, ideal for some impromptu street dancing. With over 1 million expected to descend on the well heeled streets of Notting Hill this weekend, it looks like the festival will most definitely continue whatever the weather.
3) Leeds Festival – Wrap up warm is the mantra for this year’s Leeds festival. And, if you follow Alexa Chung’s advice, pair whatever you’re wearing with a Barbour for maximum protection against the elements. But what of our undergarments? If there was ever a moment to break out the big knickers, now is the time. At Fox & Rose we just adore Fleur of England’s offering from the ‘Something Blue’ line. Crafted from the finest Austrian lace and stretch satin its wisp of extra material might just provide a little extra insulation. The matching bra is so comfy you won’t need to remove as you snuggle down into your sleeping bag. Complete the look with the matching suspender belt for a truly romantic and ethereal festival look.
