There’s something so…British about a festival. The weather, the acceptance of the mud, the cheap, non-waterproof tents, the fashion. Everybody who is anybody has attended a festival or at least wishes they had.
Festival fashion is one of the biggest fashion trends discussed amongst the masses every year. Although some people push the boat out, there always seems to be a set uniform of denim shorts, t-shirt and wellies. The last few years, however, as the celebrity count rises at festivals like Glastonbury, V and the Isle of Wight, it’s easier to see how the usual moulds of festival fashion can be distorted for outfits with a little more oomph!
Kate Moss flies the flag for every Brit girl who wants to have her own fashion moment when everyone else is looking awful! No-one can embody the true British style and cool like Moss and the festival veteran always brings her bit of the catwalk to the mud lined avenues of whatever venue she’s gracing with her presence.
Daisy Lowe is always another star who we love to watch during the summer months. Her genetic effortless cool and her indie strange, albeit kind of cute boyfriend Matt are the perfect accessories for summer and we can’t help but pick our jaws up from the floor as she struts through the fields in her Barbour and wellies. Alexa Chung is the same, a perfect celebrity who is able to transcend from A-list red carpet events to a muddy field with the same grace all the way through.
Even Coleen and Wayne Rooney took a break out of their busy schedules to attend Glastonbury, showing that a festival being for hippies and students is a thing of the past. Coleen even got the leopard-print Hunters out of retirement to mark the occasion.
So to see what you can get away with, have a look at what celebrities like these are wearing and create something with your own twist. It never pays to look the same as someone else but at least you can pull inspiration from other people! And if all fails, I suppose it’ll suffice to go back to the old denim shorts/wellies combo, just make sure you get an awesome hat or accessory to go with it!
