Hey WayHome Fashionistas!

The WayHome weekend is fast approaching and we know that finding 3 days’ worth of on-trend festival wear is nothing short of a small feat (ok, slight exaggeration). Thankfully, Topshop has just about everything required to satisfy the appetite of a music festival “shopavore”!

From personal shopping services to new shipments of festival-ready pieces on the daily, you can be sure that Topshop will have you looking top notch at WayHome.

Alright… now let’s get to the good stuff.

We recently had the pleasure of meeting Topshop Personal Shopper, Jessica Luffman, who gave us the lowdown on what’s way-hot this music festival season. Here are the top 5 festival trends of 2016, all of which are available at a Topshop at Hudson’s Bay store near you:

  1. Western-style

“Western-style accessories are everywhere this festival season. To get in on this trend, look for belts, boots and handbags embellished with buckles that give them that Western twist – the bolder the better!”




  1. Bandanas

“People are going bananas for bandanas, because they are so versatile! Wear it around your neck as a choker knotted at the back, or tied through your hair when you need to cool off. Don’t forget you can also rock it around your ankles or wrists as an impromptu accessory.”




  1. Embroidery Denim

“Embroidered denim is a huge must have this festival season! It touches on the arts & crafts trend and gives you that bit of ‘70s flair. Channel your inner boho by pairing this with a large floppy hat and flowy peasant top.”




  1. Bardot Tops

“We love Bardot tops because they show off your collar bone which is such a feminine look. There are so many different styles and cuts of this top, so you can be sure to find the one that’s most flattering on you.”




  1. Patchwork and Pins

“Go back to your Girl Guide days and express your personality by accessorizing with pins and patches, sure to be a conversation starter on the festival grounds. Give yourself a kick start by grabbing a backpack already decked out in patchwork.”




What’s next?

Knowing current festival trends is a huge help when shopping… but sometimes, no fashion guide can rescue you from a change room fiasco in which you’re left in a disheveled mess and various ill matching clothes tile the floor (eek).

Want to save yourself the headache? Book a FREE appointment with a Topshop personal shopper! All you need to do is let them know what occasion you’re shopping for (WayHome of course!), what your style or trend influences are, and your sizing. Then, voila! When you arrive at your appointment, your personal shopper will have tons of styled outfits ready to go for you. There is no minimum spend required and you can even bring your bestie to make the experience that much more fun.
You can book your personal shopping experience at Toronto’s Queen Street Topshop location with Jessica Luffman by emailing her at Jessica.luffman@hbc.com. Jess will also be onsite at the WayHome festival grounds, so be sure to check out what styles she’s rocking at @jluffman.
