Festivals are as much about the fashion as the music, so if you're heading to one this season, it's your time to dress creatively and showcase your style. Whatever festival tribe you fit into, from bohemian to grunge to hippy or hipster, there's a festival fashion look out there for you.
Your capsule festival fashion wardrobe
There is definitely an art to festival packing, and so it's crucial to get your capsule festival fashion wardrobe just right. When it comes to festival clothing, start with a hero piece that you'll want to show off several times during the season. Whether it's a fun sun dress, a dramatic maxi dress or a standout raincoat, mix and match it with other pieces to create various festival outfits. Have fun with layering and mix and match with denim and chiffon shirts, leather and jean jackets, woolly cardigans and gilets. You can also bring an array of footwear into the mix depending on the weather and occasion. Flip flops are perfect if it's sunny, but remember those funky wellies just in case the clouds are out.
Festival fashion for every season
Festival fever has gripped the world, and now it extends far further than the traditional summer gatherings. High summer festivals call for LA inspired festival wear - think playsuits, boyfriend shorts and crop tops. Spring and autumn festivals can be met with chic maxi skirts, long sleeved 70s style dresses and denim dungarees. Invest in a great jacket that'll go with any festival outfit. Parkas are the classic festival fashion look and they'll give you plenty of warmth if it gets chillier than expected. Otherwise, the rain coat has made a definite comeback, go for bright shades or a transparent plastic fabric for that nostalgic Pac A Mac look.
