How to: Dress for a Festival

How To Sep 2, 2013

Rightly or wrongly festivals have become as much about what you wear as the bands you see – they’re the grown up costume party/halloween experience, where you can be whoever you want. But when Harper’s Bazaar asked me to write about what my staples are for a festival, instead of immediately pondering fairy wings and micro shorts, the first thought that came to my mind was the big C.¬†Comfort. Lame I know but I can tell you from experience it’s not that easy to enjoy a¬†four day festival when you’re¬†wearing a bodysuit. Been there, sweated that. ¬†It seems that in the last few years, without me even knowing it, my festival style has grown up – for this year’s¬†Glastonbury¬†I stocked my backpack with comfy (but chic) basics, a few I nabbed from Whistles while I was wandering around London, and had the best festival yet. I used some of my downtime while I was there to photograph my outfits laid out on the grass outside our tent – it was day two so the grass hadn’t turned to mud yet . You can read the full post complete with my picks of the best festival basics available online here.

Glasto outfits:

Outfit 1: Striped top (like this), denim shorts, Leopard print anorak (like this), Hunter wellies

Outfit 2: Leopard print tee, leather skirt (like this), khaki jacket (like this), cheap black and white converse style shoes I bought at sainsburys

Outfit 3: Leather singlet (like this), boyfriend jeans, statement sweater (love this one too), wellies.

I have to be honest and say over the few days I was at Glastonbury there I mixed and matched these pieces depending on the weather – a pretty interchangeable festival wardrobe – until they got too muddy or sweaty to wear.

If you have time, make sure to head over and read festival dress code tips at¬†Harper’s Bazaar.
