Sunburn is right around the corner folks! Have you figured your packing list yet? In case you’ve been too busy eating Christmas cakes and planning your New Year parties, we at TrendInsider have been decoding the perfect looks for you.
The desi equivalent of ‘Tomorrowland’. Not just for the EDM lovers, they host some great Psychedelic Trance and House artists too!
When: Dec 27 – Dec 30
Where: Vagator Beach, Goa
Dress code: Laid-back with a beach-y vibe, that’s the spirit of this festival! Think Boho-chic and holographic prints. Ladies load up your arsenal with shorts, crop tops (or go bold with maxi tops), printed maxis, maxi skirts, flats, sandals and hats or chic sunnies – you will need one to protect your peepers from the sun while looking totally on-point. Accessorize with gold-toned jewellery for a dramatic flair.
Gentlemen, we’ve got your backs too! Forget your jeans and tailored trousers and pull out your shorts! If you have got washboard abs please show them off, we’ve got no objections! But, if you are still working on them then try teaming your shorts with tank tops, printed shirts and flip-flops (you’ll want to leave your stylish shoes behind – trust us, you don’t want to be walking around with a ton of sand taking permanent residence in your shoes!)
Finally, don’t forget to carry trippy glow-in-the-dark gear and some twinkly LED lights too!
2. Magnetic Fields
A music festival loaded with rich experience! You can stay in a tent like the “Bedouins” (nomads) or in a 17th century palace like royalty. Live it up like spoilt brats at the after-party which happens to be on a boat! The line-up boasts of a fresh fusion of Indian classic legends with exciting underground international stars.
When: Dec 18 – Dec 20
Where: Alsisar, Rajasthan
Dress code: Magnetic Fields is a music festival like no other. Loaded with activities like yoga sessions, treasure hunts and star-gazing workshops, alongside the music, this is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of experience. Keep your outfits to a minimal and opt for natural fabrics like cotton and linen, layered with some cool ethnic jackets.
Ladies stick to loose-fitting tops, wide-brimmed hats, shorts and cotton dresses. Accessorise with traditional local jewellery to truly soak in the spirit of Rajasthan. A quirky pair of sunnies will go a long way to beat the harsh desert sun. Don’t forget to carry some heavy layering to protect you from the desert chills at night, which by the way is going to be quite nippy!
Gentlemen, get your swag on with joggers, shorts, tank tops and printed shirts. If you want to blend in with the culture of the area, take inspiration from the recent Rajasthan Fashion Week. Try the linen shorts and the khadi shirts. You can even wear a kurta and pyjama to keep things free-flowing, combined with some sexy knits!
3. India Bike Week
Music, bike racing, bike stunts, biker build-offs and film festivals, this is like the Fast and the Furious on two wheels and in India!
When: 19 Feb – 20 Feb, 2016
Where: Vagator, Goa
Dress code: Leather, leather and more leather! Ladies load up on biker jackets, skinny trousers and studded boots. This is the place to unleash your inner rebel and show off your tomboy-ish side. Take inspiration from these street-style stars for maximum impact. For all the racer chicks out there, pack some stylish Kevlar jackets with padding all over.
Guys, it’s time to show-off your bad-boy side! For all the Harley and Triumph riders, go all out black- leather jackets, black pants, black tees, black boots and of course a black helmet to go with your motorbike! The racers can go with some colourful (red, white and yellow!) Cordura jackets that will complement your bikes! Take a look at these trendy men to amp up your style game at the venue.
4. EVC, Bacardi Enchanted Valley Carnival
Spanning multi-genres of music with a line-up of artists from both India and abroad, this is a camping experience that you will never forget.
When: 18 Dec – 20 Dec
Where: Aamby Valley, Lonavala
Dress code: The aim is to get closer to nature. Think camping and adventure sporting with a musical twist.
For the day time get your athletic gears ready. Gym shorts or leggings, joggers, tank tops, oversized tees and sports shoes are a must-have. A pair of sunnies and a baseball cap will be the perfect accessories.
For the night, ladies, go as whimsical as you can! Blend in with your enchanted surroundings with quirky print dresses, chunky knits and funky jewellery. Think Alice in Wonderland, think decadence! Look for floral and lacey motifs to up the ante of your music festival fashion game.
Gentlemen, you can style up your basic jeans and tee or shirt combos with cropped trousers, suspenders, quirky hats and sleek or colourful outerwear (if you are insanely fashion forward). Take inspiration from trendsetters around the world to create your own whimsical look.
Remember to carry warm outerwears! Lonavala tends to get very cold and you don’t want to be freezing while you are out for a good time.
