Impractical Festival Fashion

So apparently it is "Festival Season" which means that fashion stores everywhere are rebranding their clothing lines to include "Festival Fashion" 

BUT, I don't know about you, but I have come to the conclusion that a lot of these fashion stores wouldn't know a festival if it stood behind them and dabbed. (yes, I know what dabbing is, I'm old, not dead) 

Let us look at the evidence, as provided by doing a Google search for festival fashion. 

An off-the-shoulder playsuit by Boohoo.

Sweet Jesus, if you have ever been to an actual festival and wore a playsuit MORE THAN ONCE, then you are a damn genius, a GENIUS. Playsuits are NOT designed to be worn for anyone who will at one point need the bathroom. (And when it comes to festivals, I use the word bathroom LOOSELY) 

My next piece of evidence.

Oh for fucks sake. Same issue, but longer. How will you pee? Will you drop them to the ground? Eewwwwwwwwwwwwwww, nasty. 

Can we talk about this? Do we even need to talk about this? We don't, do we? Suffice to say, I look at this and think, oooooh chilly. 

Ever been to a festival? It's slightly moist on the ground isn't it? (So goddamn muddy. MUDDY AS HELL, right?) WHO WOULD WEAR THESE TO A FESTIVAL?

And finally? 

Oh god, it's highly impractical, stupid, would get filthy, would get you punched and yet I want one. 

Am I alone?

Is festival fashion stupid as hell? Or do I have a point?

Let me know.

  1. I'M SO WITH YOU ON THIS. I wrote in a post a couple of months ago that if I see one more brand suggest a white playsuit as suitable for festivals I might cry! THEY DON'T KNOW THE HORRORS.

    1. THEY HAVENT SEEN WHAT WE HAVE SEEEEEEEEEEEEN. Looks off in the distance with a haunted look

  2. I was about to smash my keyboard when I saw the mesh vest...then I saw the alligator/crocodile tail. FFS! No!

  3. I love that tail. I learned my lesson hardcore at Burning Man last year. Anything with strips or fringe on the bottom is going to fall in the toilet. That ironic prom dress won't fit in the port-a-potty. All I wanted out there was sweatpants and sweatpants when it was freezing and I had stomach issues. I have learned my lesson!!!!

  4. I can't tell how much I loathe seeing the word 'festival' used to sell all manner of toot.
    The tail though. Fuck me, I want that tail.

  5. Not sure what 'dabbing' is but I want the tail.

    1. Wait, what? Dabbing? Google it. It's totally safe.

      ME TOOO. Damn ASOS
