Whilst Summer may officially be over for many of us now that September has arrived, for some the Summer of Love is still to come. Bestival is the perfect festival to wrap up the Summer, the last festival of the season to tick off on the calender.

This year, the festival theme is Summer of Love. If you are heading down to the Isle of Wight next weekend then there is still time to perfect your fancy dress! Need some help on how to channel your inner hippy and get in the spirit of the festival? Follow out top tips for essential Summer of Love fancy dress.

How to Dress Like a Summer of Love Hippy;

1. It's all about peace and love. The simplest accessory to add instant hippy vibes to your look is of course a classic medallion.

2. There is nothing more 60s than a pair of John Lennon style sunnies to give you an even greater rose tinted view of all your festival frolics! A simple way to add colour to your festival outfits and you can grab a pair for just £1.29.

3. Get the full hippy trip with some flower power and peace out instant tattoos. For only 69p, they are a great addition for any 1960s look, easy to apply and will wash off before you have to return to 2015 on the Tuesday!

 4. Wig out! Top off your look with a 60s inspired wig and really channel those hippy vibes. Perfect for embracing your inner hippy and morphing into your Summer of Love Bestival persona.

5. Go with the flow. Embrace the theme fully by channelling all those peace, love and 60s thoughts. Spend your festival experience with an open mind and spread those peaceful vibes far and wide to truly get in the spirit of the Summer of Love.
