Planning your Summer Bank Holiday is always a hard task with so many options to choose from but if you are a vintage lover, there is no other answer than Twinwood. Twinwood is the ultimate vintage festival for music and dance and is back to celebrate its 21st year this August. The festival will run from Friday 25th August until Monday 28th August and is expected to be as big as ever this year.
Twinwood is the epitome of vintage. There is a plethora of activities, whether you want to learn how to retro dance, treat yourself at a vintage stall or explore something new at the museum sites, there is something for everyone so you will never get bored.
What to wear?
As one of the largest vintage events in Europe, it is no surprise that people use Twinwood as an opportunity to dress in their favourite vintage attire. This leaves many festival goers with one daunting question; What should I wear? Put an end to the what-do-I-wear conundrum with this breakdown of Twinwood outfits, suitable for whatever is on your Twinwood itinerary.
Formal: Ivory Skies
The Ivory Skies set has been created to turn heads and make you feel incredible. These formal yet functional ensembles are ideal for those who are interested in a conservative take on vintage clothing. Both of these outfits complement each other with their airy colour palettes and formal aesthetic. You would even fit in with the Mr and Miss Twinwood entries! Even if you are unable to make it to Twinwood this year, these outfits would work great for wedding guests, a day at the races or at afternoon tea.
Pair the Socialite Gadabout Linen Suit with the Socialite Gadabout Waistcoat and Wedgewood Blue Spearpoint Shirt to create the head-turning men's outfit. Wear the Powder Blue Freedom Suit with Ivory Mesh Crochet Gloves, our Cloud Clutch Bag and Cream Rose Hair Flower to create this airy and feminine women's look.
Casual: Mint Memories
The Mint Memories set takes a more casual approach to Twinwood fashion. These are for you if you are looking for a more laid-back yet co-ordinating look. The Mint Green and Charcoal colour palette balances a bold colour with a softer colour making these outfits striking yet wearable. If you are unable to make Twinwood this year, these outfits would be ideal for shopping, going out for a meal or a picnic in the park.
Wear the Daytona Bowling Shirt with a pair of Hugo Trousers in Slate Grey to build this outfit. Complete the look by accessorising with our Vintage Leather Messenger Bag – the ideal option for vintage eventgoers who carry a lot. Create the women’s look with the Socialite Matinee Dress in Pistachio and Black Seamed Tights as a base and complete this feminine look with a practical Grey Vintage Round Bag and a pair of Black Wayfarer Sunglasses.
Dance: Jam and Jive
The Jam and Jive set has been created with dancing in mind. These stylish yet practical outfits are perfect for those that want to dance the weekend away. The Melody Dress and Granville Trousers have been tried and tested and are an ideal option for dancing and wearing as festival attire simultaneously. The ensembles have burgundy and navy pops to emulate the bright festival aesthetic and provide a feel-good festival fit.
Partner the Navy Granville Trousers with a White Spearpoint Shirt and our Maroon Braces with Leather Loops to create a bold look. Complete the outfit with our Silver Ridge Collar Bar and Silver Sleeve Holders. For the women, team our Melody dress in Berry Red with our Navy Patent Frame Bag, Purple Bouquet Hair Flower and Red and White Twill Scarf for a harmonious yet striking vintage look that is perfect for dancing.
