The Festival edit: Find the perfect pre-loved accessory

Festival season is still in full swing and is a part of the year greatly anticipated for its collaboration of cultural and musical delights. There's a lot to be said about the displays of statement outfits and accessories seen at these events, it's an expressive fashion extravaganza. Festivals such as Coachella and Glastonbury set the bar for us all, because who doesn’t want to follow in the footsteps of the style icons who attend such events? Names such as Rihanna, Gigi and Bella Hadid, Olivia Palermo and pretty much every Victoria Secret model are looked to for style inspiration and they always seem to get it just right. By now we all know festival go to accessories are a colourful display of iridescent embellishments and of course the unbeatable denim.

Here at Xupes, we have curated a list of the most important accessories to have at a festival, a bag - obviously. What else are you going to carry your lip-gloss, mobile and spare rhinestones in? Be that a backpack a belt bag, cross body or a shoulder bag we have got you covered with our collection of stunning pre-loved handbags.  

Although this year Glastonbury is having a fallow year to give the land a rest. We can still implement our favourite looks at this year’s Reading & Rise festivals. Sara Sampaio was spotted at Coachella wearing a pink gingham co-ord with a Chanel Backpack.

Our adorable pre-loved Chanel Aubergine Tweed Mini Classic Backpack with Matte Gold Hardware is such a great alternative. This would look perfect teamed with the uniform festival denim cut off shorts. Rihanna is usually seen sporting an array of mini-bags and crossbody bags at festivals, a crossbody bag is a practical accessory, you don't have to worry about it falling off or putting it down.

Our pre-owned Chanel Pink Quilted Lambskin Vintage Timeless Bucket Bag is so chic the drawstring tassels make this an even more relevant piece for the occasion. Pair this piece with a Maxi dress and a pair of oversized sunglasses for an effortless look.

CHANEL PINK QUILTED LAMBSKIN VINTAGE TIMELESS BUCKET BAG

A personal favourite for many festival style-influencers is the belt bag, who could deny the comfort of knowing their belongings were safely strapped to their waist, whilst also giving off that Kendall Jenner vibe? Our pre-owned Louis Vuitton Blue Monogram Denim Bum Bag is a perfect go-to bag pair this with some flares and crochet and you would be an unforgettable influence.

Doubling-up on bags has become another power dressing statement among women in the public eye, Ariana Grande sported this look whilst performing at the festival. Our favourite celebrities are often seen keeping it safe when double-bagging, sticking to the same brand, but the likes of Lily Aldridge will mix brands, prints and colours. If you are someone who wants to be seen then pair our Blue Chevron Quilted Denim New Medium Le Boy with a totally Denim outfit for that Britney and Justin circa 2001 look.

CHANEL BLUE CHEVRON QUILTED DENIM NEW MEDIUM LE BOY

Our last festival favourite forms part of our Hard to Find collection, an extremely rare Chanel Pink Quilted Denim Vintage Maxi Jumbo XL Flap Bag. Originally intended as a Runway piece, this particular colour and material is seasonal and would have been made in very limited numbers.
