The festival season is upon us and it’s less than 24-hours to one of the biggest music festival in Nigeria, The Gidi Culture Festival!
Gidi Culture Festival will hit Lagos once again on Saturday, April 4th, 2015 and we are super excited to experience the one-day off at the beach! It’s almost showtime and just like every other occasions, what to wear comes into play.
We have put together some latest fashion trends that we expect to see the performers as well as the festival attendees wear and trust that we have my eyes fixed and can’t wait to see how many of these predictions will come to reality.
Here are ten trends that we expect to see at the 2015 edition of the Gidi Culture Festival!
This has been one of the biggest trend this season and for one of the biggest festival in Nigeria, we expect to see a lot of ladies turn up rocking this trend. Whether it’s in a skirt, shorts or trouser form, we know there would be a lot of distressed denim at the GC festival.
The first things that comes to most minds at the sound of a beach party is the opportunity to dress down but smart. A crop top is very trendy and a fashion go-to especially when the occasion is far from formal.
FEDORA/ STRAW HATS
The sun is going to be scorching and there is no other alternative than a straw/ Fedora hat. So it’s safe t assume that we will be seeing a lot of people rocking their various kinds of hats for the festival.
There is nothing more annoying than being out all day in the sun without a cool pair of sunglasses to protect the eyes and pull your whole look together. Hence the reason why we think everyone will be rocking one at the biggest beach party in Lagos.
If you are a fashion lover, then you will immediately understand why we expect to see a lot of Kimonos at the GC festival. Kimonos are big on trend this season and it switches things up, giving you that bohemian feel. A lot of celebrities have stepped out recently sporting one and we are sure this trend will be big at the festival.
FLOWER HEAD PIECE
This trend has been on for a few seasons and there is no doubt that festival attendees will take on this trend. There is no better way to complete your beach outfit than with a flower hair accessories.
The beach can be such a messy and sandy environment and the only way around it is the right pair of sneakers. So we expect to see a lot of people turn up in a pair of lovely footwear (sneakers to be precise).
Skater skirts are in and I can wishfully predict that a lot of festival attendees will show up rocking this trend.
SLING SHOULDER BAGS
For such an occasion, a big tote bag is totally unnecessary or simply a fashion misstep. Sling shoulder bags are comfortable and have increasingly become more popular on festival scenes hence we expect to see a lot of this trendy bag at the Gidi Culture Festival.
Floral prints have been huge this season and are currently having a fashion moment. It’s fresh, youthful and looks good on almost everyone and so we expect a lot of fashion lovers to tap into it in whatever form they choose to.
