Questionable weather aside, festival season is officially upon us! It’s time to dig out your tent and sleeping bag and start planning for a weekend of fun. Whether you are looking for wholesale clothing or are in need of some stylish pieces for your own wardrobe, you’ve come to the right place.
To make sure you’re properly prepared, we’ve listed our clothing must-haves for festival season. From practical considerations to fashion faves, make sure you include these on your packing list for any festival.
Music festivals are all about blending together fashion and practicality. When it comes to bags, you need a hands-free option. The trusty bumbag has weathered many seasons in the festival fashion game but it’s time for it to step aside in favour of the more stylish crossbody bag.
Available in every shape and colour you can dream of, crossbody bags are the ideal size. They will easily fit all your essentials without looking too bulky. As an added bonus, they are a hands-free option like bumbags so you don’t have to worry about actually carrying a bag around all weekend.
The British weather is notoriously changeable. If we’re being entirely honest, most of us will have made it through a festival or two that turned into a swap long before the first act has even graced the stage. While there’s not much to be done about the weather, a lightweight jacket is a must for any festival goer. Once the sun goes down and temperatures drop, you’ll be happy that you’ve got one around.
To look stylish in any weather, choose a holographic PVC mac or vinyl jacket – these will not only add an extra layer or warmth but are also waterproof so will see you through even the worst showers. Bomber jackets and retro-look track jackets are currently making a splash in the fashion world so you could opt for one of these instead, and they will pair well with any festival outfit.
And, of course, we can’t leave denim jackets out of the essentials list. Classic indigo blue, cool black, or eye-catching white, these jackets have been a staple both in and out of campsites for decades now. They are guaranteed to look good with whatever you are wearing, will keep you warm during the evenings, and work well in a pinch if you need something to sit on.
Again, thanks to the changeable weather, crop tops are to festivals what floral prints are for spring. Whether you usually dare to bare usually, the festival season offers you the ideal opportunity to play around with your personal style and experiment.
Crop tops are fun, fashionable and practical, ticking all the right boxes for any festival wardrobe staple. Choose one with a bold print and fringing for the ultimate boho-chic vibes or dress to impress with a sequined crop top.
Whatever the weather, wellies are a must. Festival sites and camping grounds quickly turn boggy when you have tens of thousands of people walking about in the same area. Be it a trusty pair of black wellies you picked up at your local sports retailer, or a stylish pair of rubber Chelsea boots, play it safe and don’t head off to the campsite without them.
In conclusion, when it comes to festival fashion and those essential pieces, it’s all about finding the balance. You want to make sure that you’re having fun and showing off your personal style while still wearing an outfit that practically makes sense for a weekend spent in a muddy field.
Have you got any festivals planned this year?
