The Ultimate Weekender

Carnivals-a-coming and the girls at Lipsy HQ are looking forward to some Caribbean flavour this weekend. We're up for tasting some delicious West Indian food, seeing colour blocking costumes and dancing to the sounds of Soca music in the heart of Notting Hill. It goes without saying but, we absolutely have to look the part. Unlike our standard festival gear we're opting for sequins, glitter and statement hues to follow the floats in carnival tradition.

Not for the faint-hearted, Notting Hill's Caribbean festival is the time to break out the sexy wardrobe looks that usually don't see the light of day. Opt for crop tops, hot pants, low cut playsuits and bold colours to stand out from the crowd; and to highlight your look pair your outfit with chunky accessories to make a bold statement.


Reading's calling too this weekend but, for all the rockers to come to the 2011 Reading & Leeds festival. As usual our playsuits and jumpsuits are high on the agenda as our must have festival buys. With a Pixie picking at the top of our style list, we're sure to look boho chic in the keyhole back playsuit one piece.

As for the Dance crew they'll be heading to Creamfields instead this bank holiday to party to the sounds of the super cool Swedish House Mafia, David Guetta and DJ Jaguar Skills. In a recent interview Jaguar Skills told us what to expect this year at Creamfields "I wanna play a little more House music. I really like House, but due to the nature of the music, it doesn't really lend itself to my style. But other than that? I'm going IN. It's going to be a tear up for sure. And I just want to say, it's an honour to be playing Creamfields this year, I'm gonna do my best to smash it."

OMG! We're so excited! It's a big toss up here at Lipsy HQ, it's the final summer countdown and we are stretched between three of the hottest and biggest bank holiday festivals the UK has to offer. You know us Lipsy girls, we love a good party!
