Our Shopcade Fashion Correspondents Analise & Sophie hit Global Gathering and here’s how it went down! Find out more from Sophie on her time there, who she was raving with and of course, what she was wearing…

“I was lucky enough to gain press access to ‘Global Gathering’ festival and attend on behalf of Shopcade. And boy, what a cracking festival it was! I didn’t get the tickets till two days before so it was a manic rush to raid my wardrobe and find the perfect festival looks before the big day – a fashionista’s gotta plan her outfit eh?!

I opted for the perfect festival footwear – a pair of Caterpillar boots in original brown suede; comfy yet fashionable footwear. You need comfy shoes when you’re at a weekend festival as you’re on your feet non-stop all day and you also gotta think about the weather and Cat boots are perfect if there’s mud.

On my top half I wore ASOS’s mesh tee with a black bra and high-waist pants underneath. I absolutely love the 90s mesh trend that’s taken over this SS14, it adds ‘edge’ to your style, something I try and work into all my looks. If you know me well, you’ll know I love over-accessorizing, so I worked a body chain into my outfit to finish off my look. Body chains have crept in as a late summer fashion trend but I just love them as they go with absolutely everything. That was only day one’s outfit! On day two I kept it simple and put on my fave oversized Adidas print tee – I wanted to go with more of a sporty vibe this time; another dominant trend.

Behind The Scenes @ Lovebox

We sent our fab fashion correspondent Analise Trotter down to Lovebox last week to get all the behind the scenes goss from the London festival. Want to get the insider scoop? Then read on!

“Last week I was lucky enough to be asked by the lovely people down at Shopcade to go and report for them at Lovebox Festival in Victoria Park.

My first dilemma- what to wear obviously! Festivals are one of my favourite occasions to dress for, a place where you know anything goes and the more glitter on that lovely face of yours, THE BETTER!

Never one to complain about the sunshine, I embraced the amazing weather we had so much so that I even whacked my swimsuit on! I opted for this lovely cut out piece from Motel Rocks with a matching red daisy print Co-ords (I tied the shirt around my waist,as it was just TOO hot to rock the look together).

I teamed this up with some gorgeous Orelia gold bangles and hamsa hand necklace, layered a Mango gold necklace and Topshop choker over the top to create a stacked effect and added an Urban Outfitters arm bangle and some super cool Divine Ink London metallic tattoos for those extra festi-vibezzz.

We headed up to Victoria Park where the crowds were in full force already embracing the music and sunshine at 12pm. There were so many gorgeous girlies looking amazing, so street style snapping wasn’t hard! Some big trends of the summer seemed to be epic amounts of face glitter, graphic prints and colourful co-ords. Some of my favourite brands for these are Motel Rocks, Topshop and Miss Pap where you can snap up a two piece for less than your festival ticket price- always a winner!
