You can get your hands on beautiful jewellery pieces that have a bewitching style, breathless design, and unique features. Also, do keep this in your mind, that sparkling earrings that complement the dress of your colour will surely steal everyone’s attention.

Cool Sunglasses

Sunglasses will give your face a unique look. So throw on some shades and maintain a cool look that complements your attire. These sunglasses are likely to steal the spotlight everywhere you go. Also, do not forget to pack some spare sunglasses for any beach parties, VIP parties, or yacht parties you may attend during the festival.

Mini Handbag

The trickiest part about picking the festival OOTD is the bag. The reason is that you have to make sure that your handbag has enough space for all of the essentials, such as your phone, your cards, lip balm, and sunscreen, as well as it should match your attire.

Casual dress for the Beach Clubs and strolling around the Croisette

For this, you might think about a light, fluid dress that can be paired with sandals and a large hat. Floral options will be ideal, but also a white or cream dress will be perfect. You can also think about a polka dot pattern that is always girly and cute! It has to be a comfortable more relaxed look.

Summary

Apart from all the must-haves that I mentioned there are also elements to re3memebr. Hair. make-up, facial and glow. Furthermore, you can also get a professional makeover for the event to help you become the best possible version of yourself. If you do not put the same amount of effort into your hair and makeup, it will not make much difference in how much you spend on a new dress, nice heels, handbag, and a piece of jewellery. For the hairdresser, I can recommend Rossano Ferretti Salon. It’s a celebrity salon where stars like Nathalie Portman or Charlize Theron have their hairstyle. So I am sure you will love it. I also hope that you will enjoy your time at the festival! Make it count and have fun with your looks!
