The most obvious, and blindly essential, item of clothing you should be taking to a festival this Summer is your wellington boots!

If you’re lucky enough to attend a festival where the sun is beaming and spirits are high, it is very important to keep yourself protected from the sun – whilst looking great, of course! Many high street and high end stores have started selling floppy festival hats for the festival season and we love the designs they have come out with this year.

Over the last year, flower crowns have made a huge impact in festival and summer fashion as a whole. Add a quirky pop of colour to your festival outfit with a multi-coloured flower crown – perfect with loose waves for a grungy look.
Parting with your beloved skinny jeans can seem like a daunting thought, but with soaring temperatures and mud at every turn, it may make you reconsider your fashion choices. Dare to show a little skin and opt for some denim shorts with a loose fitting vest for a comfortable and stylish festival look.

Even if you’ve been checking the weather forecast every day up to the festival and several times on the actual day, you should always take a rain coat as we are in Britain after all.
