6 styles you can wear to summer festivals
Festival season is approaching, which means you’re probably wondering what to wear on the weekends when you could face all four seasons in one day. The key to festival dressing is ensuring you’ve packed the right pieces; ones that are versatile enough to work for day and night, yet still keep your luggage light.
For effortless pieces to see you through the likes of Glastonbury, Wilderness and Hideout, to the culture and literary festivals in your diary – look no further. We’ve rounded up the wardrobe staples you’ll need this summer.
The printed co-ord
If you’re heading to a festival abroad or expecting sunshine, focus on lightweight fabrics and opt for our linen co-ord to keep your cool. This is also the easiest way to pull together a high-impact look that requires minimal effort. Keep accessories and the rest of your look pared-back and just add a simple cross-body bag and some white trainers.

The denim shorts
Cool and universally flattering, retro-inspired denim shorts will be the building blocks of your festival wardrobe. This pair rest high on the waist in a close fit and are perfect for when temperatures start to rise. Style with second-skin knits or play with proportions by adding statement sleeves and of-the-moment puffed silhouettes.

The free-spirited top
Hot on the heels of bardot tops and off-the-shoulder styles, a crochet singlet is set to become your latest wardrobe must-have. Part of the allure of this trend is that it’s joyful and comes with a hint of nostalgia. Wear this insouciant top with denim shorts, trainers and a pair of cat eye sunglasses this summer.

The cargo trousers
With a nod to the ’90s, these trousers come in a cargo style and an easy-to-wear khaki hue. Take a more-is-more approach by wearing yours with a riotous printed top and when temperatures drop, throw on our tie dye sweatshirt. These trousers are as versatile as they are durable, meaning you’ll be able to wear them long after the festival season ends.

The cross-body bag
Every now and then, a bag comes along that boasts both the immediate appeal that makes it a signature piece, plus a simplicity that ensures it’ll stand the test of time. Our Bibi bag ticks every box. In a range of refreshingly modern prints and shades, these cross-body bags aren’t just ultra-covetable, they will also work with every look in your wardrobe. Wear yours at festivals with everything from shorts and tees to printed summer dresses.

The easy dress
If your festival style is defined by bohemian, floaty dresses, this style will definitely satisfy you no end. Inspired by botanical florals, it is elegant, simple and comes in a relaxed silhouette that can go from off-duty to high-octane with a simple accessory switch up. Wear with sandals and braided hair for a nonchalant feel at festivals abroad or add wellies and a leather jacket for a cool edge at UK festivals.
