Summer music festivals in Hungary, Croatia and Serbia are the real deal if you want to rock your festival fashion right. Sun and beach are all inclusive and even if you are a bit unlucky to catch a slightly less than perfect hot summer day like I had on Day 1 at Balatonsound last summer, it will be warm enough to run around in tiny summer outfits.
And boy, I did see them around. I spotted a hardly surprising trend of hotpants. As I kept photographing festival goers, I noticed that almost all of the girls were wearing hot pants.
I guess, apart from the obvious aesthetic appeal of hotpants, there is also a practical reason that they are the number one fashion item at festivals, where there is a lot of action, movement, dancing going on. While I was braving running around in one of my trademark bodycon dresses , the girls around me opted for shorts. And they came in all variety: leather, denim, silver, cut-offs, prints, tight, baggy .A fest of hot pants that I am sure they kept everyone happy.
Bring it on again, this summer!
