It's festival season and what better way to get ready to watch your favourite artists than getting your outfit sorted? The Gold Coast has a range of amazing stores for you to shop up a storm in, but to save you hunting them down yourself, I've done it for you (I will accept chocolate as a thank you gift, just sayin')! Ya welcome.
Get your festival look on point by not having to wait 5+ business days for shipping when you can make your way to these boutiques by car, foot, public transport, bike, roller blades and uh, stilts? Too far? Ok, too far.
But seriously, if you're scratching your head and having a breakdown over what you're going to wear, you're gonna be stoked with this list!
Inspired by bohemian hippy, festival fashions and an endless summer, White Bohemian has all you need for all things Splendour. Stocking a wide range of labels such as Spell Designs, Somedays Lovin, Fallen Broken Street and more, you'll be in boho heaven. Whether you're looking for a badass embroidered denim jacket, a chic head scarf or an ethereal maxi dress, this boutique located in Palm Beach won't disappoint!
Where: Store 6/1160 Gold Coast Hwy, Palm Beach
Festival essentials have never been so attainable. Head to Mossy in Robina Town Centre to pick up a cute outfit that will take you from Tash Sultana to Young Franco! You know you've been eyeing off that halter pantsuit that will go perfectly with your new shades. Thankfully, you can get all of that and a few sneaky extras right here on the Gold Coast. Make sure you check out their Festival 2017 collection!
Where: Robina Town Centre, Robina
There's no doubt Dissh is a favourite when it comes to all things festival fashion. They're constantly updating their stock and you're bound to find something you absolutely LOVE here. Luckily for Gold Coast folk, you can find Dissh in TWO locations. Yes, you read that correctly. The amount of fab playsuits on offer right now is enough to make me take a long lunch. Just don't tell my boss, k thanks.
Where: Robina Town Centre, Robina & Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, Broadbeach
If you thought Tigerlily was just for swimwear, you need to go take a minute to do your research. They have some of the most festival-friendly pieces that also double as what I like to call 'beach chic' - ok, so I just made that up. They have some printed jackets that are going to keep you warm & keep you looking 10/10 AND when it comes to accessories, they know what they're doin'. You can find Tigerlily at THREE locations here on the GC!
Where: Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, Broadbeach + Robina Town Centre, Robina & Harbour Town, Biggera Waters
You're in luck! The Village Markets are on every first and third Sunday of the month. So, I ain't good at maths (RIP) but I'm pretty sure that means you have time to sneak in a visit BEFORE Splendour this year. My calculations tell me Sunday July 16 is a YES and you can live it up at the markets #marketlyf. There's so much to see and do here and you'll be loving the fashion stalls. So get on it and go find yourself something to boogie in!
Where: Burleigh Heads State School
Step into fashion & accessories heaven at Emte Boutique in Burleigh Heads. I don't know about you, but I am LIVING for all the Naked Vice bags they're stocking, and not to mention the cool as (doesn't anyone say that anymore? Awks if you don't) earrings they have. What's a music festival without accessories? NOTHING, obviously. So get your cash & cards at the ready because the store will most likely be empty (see what I did there?) when you're done!
Where: 3 James St, Burleigh Heads
Since Splendour is smack bang in the middle of winter (who can we blame for that?!), there's a chance you might be a bit chilly come night time. Luckily, The Freedom State not only have some awesome clothes to help out with your overall festival style, but they have some great warm pieces that are equally-as-fab. Whether it's long sleeves to add an extra layer or if you find a warm coat, you can rest assured knowing you're set for all weather possibilities.
Where: Shop 4, Old Burleigh Theatre Arcade Goodwin Terrace, Burleigh Heads
