It’s getting to that time of year again; where we brave the unpredictable British weather in a bid to see our favourite acts perform live in a possibly knee-deep muddy field. However the most troubling dilemma is not how can you get from tent to the main stage to see Disclosure, but what on earth are you going to wear?
We need to not only be on-trend and effortlessly stylish, but we also have to be ready for whatever the day might bring, whether that be the chilled-out folk stage or the electric dance tent .
With that in mind, we have rounded up 20 of the best festival fashion essentials the high street has to offer. There’s something for everyone whether your taste is laid-back bohemian or a little more edgy.
From this season’s ethnic prints inspired by Dries Van Noten and Chloe, right through to Proenza Schouler style metallics, we've got you covered. There are even some practical options to keep you safe from that ever changing weather too.
