If you’re lucky enough to be hitting this season’s festivals then you’ll need an essential edit of outfits to take you from dusk until dawn. Look to the utility trend to strike the balance of style and comfort with jackets adorned with plenty of pockets from Paul Smith – a must for keeping the essentials on-hand. Go all-out in bold stripes and motifs that ensure you’ll stand out in the crowd, or keep it classic with boho looks and fresh florals from The Kooples and Ted Baker.
Make sure your feet can stand the heat with sandals and sneakers that you can dance in day and night. Boho-inspired embellishment adds detail to sliders whilst flatforms, hi-shine finishes and bursts of neon reimagine the sneaker and sandal with a festival feel. Whilst you can trust the music will be at it’s A-game, the same can’t be said for the weather, so don’t leave without a chunky pair of boots – classic Timberlands or Dr Martens will score style points.
There’s no other way to complete your festival line-up than with standout accessories. From bum bags to backpacks, you’ll need a bag to store your essentials that’s not only easy-access but won’t get in the way of the fun. But they needn’t be boring – bold colours and hardware finishes bring the detail. Festival fashion is all about experimenting, so don’t forget to pack statement shades. Classic shapes like ray bans and cat eye sunglasses get a festival-ready update with pops of print and bold toned lenses.
Hit all the right notes with your outfits by getting your essentials sorted. Start with jumpers and hoodies in neutral tones, then build the look with classic denim shirts – look to bleached and acid washed styles. A bold, patterned shirt will switch things up; choose checks and floral patterns that pop against dark base tones. Pair with lightweight chino shorts or amp it up with old school tracksuit vibes – you never know what the weather may bring!
To ensure you don’t miss a beat, look to footwear that’s not only stylish but also comfortable for the long days ahead. Trainers are the go-to – try Adidas and Dune, whilst Dr Martens are always on our list. The key is versatility and practicality, as after all you’ll be dancing until the small hours of the morning.
Bring your festival line-up to life with these essential finishing touches. Shield yourself from the sun with sporty caps and wide brimmed hats that will protect whilst also adding a dose of utility-inspired styling. When it comes to sunglasses, opt for bold silhouettes in eye-catching colours and mirrored lenses – festivals are the best excuse for experimenting with your look. Last but not least, don’t forget to pack a messenger bag or backpack to keep your essentials on-hand.
