Festival season is always an exciting time for fashionista’s and with Summer here and festivals looming (people are having fun at Isle of Wight Festival as we speak), we’ve compiled some of the best festival essentials you’ll need.
The number one festival essential is the Wellington Boot. With June’s weather being a bit iffy, you can never be too careful! The weatherman might predict sun but you’ll feel a bit silly if you get caught in a sudden downpour.
If you’d like to style yourself up like Kate Moss, there is the Hunter boot. It may be slightly pricey but it will never go out of fashion.
I forgot to take sunglasses with me to Glastonbury last year but managed to get a cheap pair of fluorescent pink ones on site! But it’s probably best to take some with you. After all that fiver you spend on sunnies could be spent on a pint of cider. Worth bearing in mind.
If the temperature is going to be sizzling, you’ll need to look after yourself with a hat. Plus it’s perfect to hide those bad hair days when you’ve been camped for a while and have no access to a hairdryer..
Essential to carry around spare bottles of water, money, camera, phone sun screen, your festival map and cans of beer.
You might not be able to fit many cans or bottles into this next bag, but I just thought it was too cute to exclude.
Dresses and Playsuits
There’s always an eclectic range of clothing seen at festivals. Wether it’s band t-shirts of floral playsuits, everyone can have fun reflecting their tastes at the summer gigs. This year’s summer festival essential for me is going to have to be tribal prints, so here are a few of my faves.
I lived in my shorts last year and have bought some new ones from Forever 21 for this year. A must have!
If there’s no need for wellies then stick your flats and sandals on instead. Perfect and comfy for having a bit of a rave to a bit of good music.
Even if you have your wellies, you’ll still wanna stay dry with a waterproof coat. I took a pac-a-parka last year which packed away nicely like it’s name suggested it would.
So they you have it. You’ll be pretty sorted come rain or shine with these. Don’t forget to pack all your other essentials like sun screen, toothpaste, dry shampoo and your poison of choice!
What will you be taking to the festivals this year?
