Festival season is upon us. Whether you’re off to Glastonbury, Latitude or LIMF, finding the right festival wear can be a tricky business thanks in no small part to the wonderful British weather. That’s why we’ve put together some practical but pretty festival looks!
You can’t go wrong with denim shorts and a bohemian shirt – this classic festival look has stood the test of time. Go to Guess on Paradise Street and try on their Off-The-Shoulder Lace Top. Made out of breathable viscose and featuring a stylish lace design, this tee goes perfectly with their Fringed Denim Shorts. Featuring a grungy fringed bottom, these slim fit shorts suit any style and can be paired with almost anything! For another look that’s both comfortable but cool, head to Urban Outfitters on Paradise Place and check out their Staring at Stars Crinkle Culotte Jumpsuit. Cut in a relaxed oversized fit and featuring spaghetti straps and a v-neck design, this jumpsuit gives us serious 90s vibes. Wear it with a choker for the ultimate party look. A key piece of festival wear is the rain mac – nobody wants to end up freezing in a field! Take a trip to Topshop on Keys Court to find one of our favourites – the Topshop Hooded Rain Mac. Detailed with black and white stripes to the hood and cuffs, this cute, pastel pink, rain mac will keep you dry, but more importantly, looking chic!

Another item to take if the weathers not great are wellies. Hunters are a festival staple and we can’t get enough of John Lewis’s Hunter Women’s Original Refined Chelsea Wellington Boots from the store on Paradise Place. A slim take on the iconic original design, these boots are fully waterproof and incredibly versatile. Alternatively, if it turns out to be a glorious weekend, Office’s Stephan Strappy Ankle Sandals are a great pair of shoes to take on your trip. Their simple design and tan colour will go with any outfit, plus they’re so lightweight you’ll feel like you’re not even wearing shoes! Get them from Office on South John Street.
Outfits are made with the right accessories and no festival look is complete without a pair of sunglasses. If you’re after the ultimate glam look, Stella McCartney’s Cat Eye Sunglasses from Flannels on Manesty’s Lane are a winner. Featuring a classic tortoiseshell structure and subtle gold-toned metal design, these shades are pure sophistication. For hats, we love Topshop’s Straight Brim Double Trim Fedora. Effortlessly stylish, this fedora is bang on trend and will keep you protected from the sun!

Finally, a festival accessory you really can’t go without – makeup. If you’re looking for a pop of colour with a side of sparkle, go to Paradise Street and check out Urban Decay’s Moondust eyeshadow palette. Featuring eight vibrant shades, each eyeshadow is laced with microfine bits of sparkle and lush 3-D metallics, for a luxurious, diamond-like effect. Plus, don’t forget to set your festival look with Urban Decays All Nighter Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray. This weightless spray will keep your makeup looking flawless for up to 16 hours! Whether it’s hot or humid, or cold and windy, this spray will hold your makeup in place – perfect for festivals.
