In a similar vein to my Laneway Festival edit, I thought I’d also do one for the Big Day Out festival since it’s about to hit our shores. While I’m not going to BDO this year*, these are my picks of festival-friendly attire (as opposed to the ASOS edit – high heels, really?) I’m basing my edit around the Gold Coast event which can be quite exhausting what with typically high summer temperatures, limited shade, and massive crowds. Cool and comfortable outfits are a must. For those not acquainted with the Gold Coast BDO experience, the festival fashion regularly consists of too-orange fake tans, tiny denim shorts, and bikini tops (blergh). I think these items capture the fun festival vibe and still manage to be very ‘GC’ without being too trashy.

*Insert rant here about exorbitant ticket prices and the added accommodation costs associated with hiring out an apartment on the Gold Coast because driving down or catching public transport on the day is too much of a hassle. BrisKids will know what I’m talking about /end rant.
