Citizens on stage during Field Day Festival 2012

With the summer now in full swing, it’s definitely festival season, and festival fashion is the talk on every woman’s lips. So what do people wear to festivals?

For some, festivals are about the music and not the fashion, but for others festivals are all about glamming up. My advice for those wondering what to wear to a festival would be to dress in clothes you love, and clothes you feel comfortable in. Additionally, remember to look at the weather forecast before you go, so you know whether to dress warm or dress cold.

Generally, festival attire consists of:

  • A warm coat, even better if it’s a quilted one, such as a Barbour jacket. This will ensure you’re warm whilst out in the great outdoors, whilst also being comfortable.
  • Jeans, but not new ones, as they made end up with a lot of mud on, as well as grass stains, as a result of sitting on the floor a lot.
  • A ditsy print playsuit. This can be worn with long, thick socks and wellies, which is one of the key festival fashion trends at the moment.
  • Short shorts are a yes every time! Whether denim or a floral print, hundreds of festivalgoers don their shorts, teaming them with wellies or ballet pumps. These shorts also look great with a sleeveless cropped top, creating a country girl look.
  • Bring out your inner rock chick, by wearing band t-shirts, perfectly suited to festivals.
  • Accessorise your outfit with an across the body bag. This style bag is great as you can carry all your essentials whilst also being able to keep your hands free.
  • Wellies, wellies, wellies. Perfect for the sun, wind, or rain, you can’t afford to be without them, in any type of weather.
  • Trendy sunglasses- a floral pattern, bright orange, or white, sunglasses make any festival outfit complete, adding a trendy finishing touch.
  • A thick scarf- handy for whether it’s warm or cold. If the wind is blowing, wrap it round your neck to keep warm, of it the sun’s out, use it as a rug to stay away from grass stains!
  • A hat- this can either be worn as a finishing touch to your outfit, to keep your head warm in cold weather, or to hide your greasy hair if there aren’t any washing facilities at the festival.
