Style Advisor: What To Wear To A Festival

Style Advisor: What To Wear To A Festival

It doesn’t really need to be said that if you’re going to a festival in Britain, a hooded jacket is compulsory – preferably one that’s waterproof. Aside from boots and enough pairs of socks to keep the feet of an army dry, you can put as much imagination into your festival wardrobe as you feel is necessary. They’re a place where you can give yourself far more sartorial licence than you might in everyday life. The grungy, rock ‘n’ roll aesthetic always works well in a scenario where you won’t necessarily have access to a shower for days on end – it adds some authenticity to the look – whilst festivals on the beach call for laid-back, tropical vibes. Here’s our guide to what to wear to festivals in 2018.

STREETWEAR STAPLES

Refuse to give up your city staples despite the fact that you’re now stood in a field surrounded by five tonnes of mud and an acre of portaloos? We feel you. An Off-White backpack is both stylish and practical whilst Palm Angels’ logo cap will keep the sun off your face – should it decide to grace you with its presence.

ROCK ‘N’ ROLL INFLUENCES

Be the most stylish nature boy at the camp fire in a pair of ‘80s inspired glam rock shades – the perfect facial accessory aside from a beard should you choose to channel the rock ‘n’ roll/lumberjack look.

SOLAR ESSENTIALS

Festival in the sun? We’re talking shades, shorts and sensible shoes. When we say sensible, we don’t mean boring – a pair of trainers or sport sandals will do. Complete your hedonistic ensemble with a cross-body bag (ideal for keeping all of your festival essentials safe.)

ATHLETIC FEATURES

Whether you’re into techno, indie or house, pre-empt the damp British weather with a sporting jacket that’ll keep off the drizzle. The rain doesn’t discriminate when it comes to musical tastes. Techy details and street-inspired sweats fine tune this look for ultra-cool festival days.
