It's that time of year again!

What To Wear To V Festival This Weekend

Festival season is well and truly upon us, and this weekend we’re headed to V Festival in Chelmsford to bask in the sunshine (hopefully). But sometimes, dressing for a festival can be a wee bit tricky, so you might currently be wondering ‘WTF do I wear?’

Well, never fear. Whether you want something preppy, rocky, quirky or vintage inspired, we’ve got it covered.


If you’re in love with this season’s ‘70s trend, this look is for you. Team denim minis and floaty frocks with tribal and Aztec prints for a relaxed feel (when the festival’s over, you can totally wear this Topshop mini with knee-high boots). Fringing is key, but don’t go overboard – stick to either boots or a bag. Beauty-wise, fresh, dewy skin and a pretty pop of coral are perfect partners.

> Channel Kate Bosworth-cool with these buys


Moon drop pendant, £5, Miss Selfridge

Retro saddle bag, £75, River Island

Fringed boots, £75, Zara

Denim zip front dress, £38, Topshop

Aztec cape, £15, Boohoo




Girly girls can sometimes find it tricky to find festival-friendly frocks, but this H&M number ticks all the boxes. It’s super pretty, yet loose and swingy enough for you to stuff your face with wood-fired pizza, cider and cheesy chips all weekend. White Converse go with everything, but in this instance they add a layer of laidback cool to the rest of your preppy basics.

Rainbow swing earrings, £8, ASOS

Printed swing dress, £29.99, H&M

Denim jacket, £42, Oasis

Mini satchel, £65, The Cambridge Satchel Company

Trainers, £45, Converse



Studs and chain details scream ‘I’m with the band’ and might, just might even bag you your very own rock star boyfriend. A slouchy t-shirt maxi is appropriate whatever the weather, but make sure you pack a cool cover-up for the evenings when it gets chilly. The blue in this Topshop camo jacket adds a much-needed pop of colour without looking too girly.

Skull ring, £80, Thomas Sabo

Do you obsess over prints, bright colours and novelty extras? Do you hate looking boring at a festival? Well then, you’ve come to the right place. Bright Hunter boots, emoji prints and fun shapes will be your BFF this weekend. The beauty possibilities are endless – take your pick of mega lashes, neon nails and hot lippies.

Emoji t-shirt, £12.99, H&M

Tie-side denim shorts, £19.99, New Look

‘Lady Luck’ shoulder bag, £30, Skinnydip x Felicity Hayward
