Spring - Summer

Essential Festival Chic

Festivals are for the bands and the atmosphere, but in recent years they've become a draw for the fashion pack too. If you're planning on braving the mud of Glasto, Reading/Leeds, T in the Park and the rest, make sure you hit the right note between practical and chic. Read on for our festival essentials that will help you stand out in the crowd.

Across-the-body Bag
Keep your purse, phone and keys in an across-the-body bag and leave your hands free to dance. This option’s vibrant color will add a dramatic focal point to your outfit.

Lace-up Wellies
Hunters were the rubber wellies of choice for the royals long before they were adopted by festival-goers. This design’s tall lace-ups provide great fit and comfort whether you are walking your dog or stomping around this year's festivals.
