Jodi Blk and Jose Lopez’s Wayhome Festival Essentials

The stylish pair grab their 5 favourite accessories from Topshop and Topman.

Festival goers will descend on Oro-Medonte, Ontario this weekend to take in musical acts Haim, Ray Lamontagne, Arcade Fire, fka Twigs and many more. And most of those revelers will come with high hopes of scoring a coveted street style snap or 20 for their well-curated social media feeds.

Two bloggers with enviable style, Jodi Black and Jose Lopez, perused the racks at Topshop and Topman to find snappable street style pieces; must-haves accessories that take an outfit from cool-ish to hot enough for Instagram.

Here are their top three picks to make your festival outfits this summer.

Bandanas
Bu-bye flower crown! This gorge pair of social stars both agree that bandanas are having a moment. Make like Jodi and tie one around your neck to update your essential black tee and jean shorts, or follow in Jose’s footsteps by tying it around your wrist for some sweet arm-candy.

Topshop paisley cotton bandana, $10

Topman washed paisley print bandana, $12

Backpacks
Make festival life (and we mean dancing like nobody’s watching!) a little easier by securing all your must-haves in a chic and sleek backpack.

Topshop bill perforated backpack, $75

Topman premium suede backpack, $175

Sunglasses
Pretty much an every day essential, busting out your new fave sunnies should be a moment documented on social media and festival season is the time! Go for a rounded shape or add interest with an on-trend exaggerated cat-eye. Your options are really endless, so have fun.

A baseball cap
Take athleisure to the festival with a teamless ball cap in black or white to help take your second day hair from drab to fab.

Topshop core baseball cap, $16

Topman linen curved peak baseball cap, $25

Bonus tip: Customizable pins and patches
Express your personal style with the addition of well-placed pins and patches (think: denim shorts, jackets and even shirts!), or a funky key chain or two. Whatever you choose, mix it up!
