Find your Woodstock Wardrobe on ILM!

Woodstock Wardrobe on i Love Markets

Summer is finally here and we know that you can't wait to rock that summer wardrobe!! Embracing the solaire we want to inspire our music loving festival goers with somesuggestions for obtaining the perfect Woodstock Wadrobe! Here are some of our favourite market sellers from the London Market Directory that we recommend!

Hippie Headwear

This is the staple piece of the Woodstock Wardrobe! 

Snakes and Faires at Portobello Market make beautifully hand crafted pieces, each piece is unique to you. These feather ear pieces and tiarra's are so festival chic and you won't catch anyone wearing the same! At Woodstock hippies were adorned in beads and feathers. Click here to view Snakes and Fairies.

Hippie Headbands

For your classic flower garlands head to Poppy Daisy at Old Spitalfields Market. They do garlands in every colour for just £2! 

Mu Du at Portobello Market have a great range head scarfs in vintage fabrics. She also has a great collection of hats. Why not rock a Red Indian head piece by Jules (right). Awesome with plaits and twists. 

Festival Shades

Good looking sunglasses can bring the most plain of outfits look ultra cool. Also, big shades (like Janis Joplin's left) are practical as they hide tired eyes. We LOVE Festival Specs,  they're big and round and they come with different coloured lenses so that you can change them as your mood and outfit desires! 

To shop vintage Lunnettes at Brick Lane Vintage Market specialise in vintage eyewear go for some big 60's shades or how about some 70's aviators? Auntie Aviator Eyewear are defintely worth checking out too, they can fit glasses to your perscription.

If you're into a funky hat, guys should head to Laird of Glencairn on Columbia Road, Hackney or Retrobates Vintage at Greenwich.

Airy Skirts and Big Print Dresses

With vintage you never know where you might find that dream piece, so here are a few suggestions to get your started. Berty and Gerty (left) at Camden Lock Market have rails of fabulous vintage dresses, clothes and accessories.

Eduardo Medina  at Brick Lane's Back Yard Market specialises in upcylcing vintage dresses, and creating new ones with vintage fabrics.

Tortoiseshell Vintage had some great psychedelic prints last time i visited Brixton Market. Thea Vintage at Chatsworth Road in Hackney are also fab. It's so hard to choose, click here to see the full list of vintage specialists.


We know there are haters, but we love Rhianna’s rock-chick-grunge street style. Soon to be launching her own collection, we thought we’d celebrate by recommending some of our favourite Rhi-Rhi inspired pieces from stall holders currently listing in our market directory.

Cult of Youth – Cross, bone and skulduggery 

Cult of Youth (COY) stall at Portobello Market. Jewellery designer by Kellly Seymour executes her fiscation with bones, sculls, crosses, love and peace with complete style. I couldn't resist buying the Peace and Love symbol braclet. 

Lavand Boutique - Hot Mama! Denim Shorts

The Lavand Boutique makes clothes and accessories to make a women look and feel as HOT AS SHE CAN BE!! We are certainly feeling these denim shorts. Totally Rhi-Rhi. Every Sunday at Brick Lane's Sunday-Up Market.

Pheonix Rising - Studded Sneakers! 

You gotta love these. Converse for the rock-chic in you, customised by hand by Pheonix Rising. I'd like to see them in pink!

They'd go great with her studded denim jacket (right). Get yours at Portobello Market.

YoCoco Camden- Wear a Rockstar!

 Paying homeage to the our favourite stars YoCoco Camden sure knows how to rock a good t-shirt! Not sure if Rhianna would be vain enough to wear one of herself, but maybe we'd like to. She can do Lil Wayne! Find Yococo at Camden Lock Market and Camden Stables. 

BIG Prints by Ivory jar

Rihanna’s style is not for the faint hearted. We love these big, bold and beautiful prints by Ivory Jar. Every Sunday at Brick Lane Sunday-Up Market.
