FESTIVALS are the perfect time to throw caution to the wind and express yourself. 

Most at last weekend's Parklife Festival opted for short-shorts. The shortest denim shorts to ever be shorted. Shorts cut so high they’ve become thongs.

Fashionably speaking though, some take this to Madonna proportions and expressing yourself can mean anything from a leotard covered in marijuana leaves to a cone-shaped bra.

Although given free range, most at last weekend's Parklife Festival opted for short shorts. The shortest denim shorts to ever be shorted. Shorts cut so high they’ve become thongs.

The result was a lot of dimply under-butt on show. 

The 'all eyes on my ass' festival trend is reminiscent of the days of Britney Spears, with low rider jeans and g-string on show. It’s an era we’ll remember fondly but unlikely revisit.

While it's boring to be bashful come summer time (not shy of thigh and midriff exposure myself), here are the Parklifers who opted for seasonable festival trends other than under-butt. Think twinsets, grunge revival chokers, eye-catching hair accessories, kimonos, faux-boho tassels, braids, buns, bindis and good ole' wellington boots. 

Take a look at the gallery below:
