So, as many of you will know from my ranting on twitter, last weekend I donned by shorts, grabbed my RayBans, packed my camera and headed down to Weston-Super-Mare for a day of fashion, music, and celebrities at T4 on the Beach.
T4 in on the Beach, now in its 6th year at Weston-Super-Mare, attracts fashionable festival goers and celebrities alike from across the country to enjoy a day of (usually) sunny, sea side excitement. This year the line up included the likes of Dizzee Rascal, Ellie Goulding, The Saturdays, Kelis, Pixie Lott and JLS, not to mention a whole host of celebrities from the worlds of TV, Fashion and Dance.
Throughout the day we were on hand with our camera, snapping some of the best dressed acts, celebrities and attendees, all to give you guys some inspiration and advice on how you can rock some of this season’s best looks.
Now, although I had a great time, I have to admit that the male acts didn’t offer quite the same level of fashion as perhaps some of the female acts did. However, I have selected some of the more fashion conscious males of the day to show you guys how you can get some of their looks and rock the rest of this year’s festivals in style.
Gok Wan & George Craig
He may spend his days making women look good naked but that doesn’t mean we can’t take inspiration from his own personal style. Gok wears a lot of black and so it was no surprise the he opted for a dark Rock ‘n’ Roll inspired look.
Teaming black skinny jeans with a black scoop neck tee and vintage biker jacket, Gok’s look is simple yet impacting. All white may be one of this season’s hottest trends but its opposite, all black, can often end up looking a little too harsh (think teenage Goth). Therefore, it’s a good idea to take a leaf out of Gok’s book and opt for accessories that have a slightly lighter, worn tone.
Get Gok’s look:
Wearing what was definitely my favourite outfit of the day, Burberry Model and One Night Only band member George Craig (right) mixed bold contrasting prints for an edgy, individual look. I really love the contrast of the bold scarf and top and George definitely does the right thing by keeping it simple on the bottom so he doesn’t push the outfit too far.

Kids in Glass Houses
Now they might look as miserable as sin but Kids in Glass Houses showed us that simplicity can sometimes be the best option. My favourite look is second in from the left, closely followed by the far left. However, the best thing about the whole band, in my opinion, was the Vivienne Westwood boots the guy second in from the left was wearing.
Inspired Clothing Basics:
Although a little disappointing on the men’s fashion side, but then again I don’t think keeping up with the latest trends is a top priority for Dizzee Rascal or N-Dubz, T4 on the beach was a great day out with celebrities and music in abundance. Definitely worth getting wet for! I’ll leave you with a few images of the other acts and celebrities we snapped during the day.
