Festival season is here, and with it is of course …. the rain.
All across the country music fans decend on mud soaked fields for a day of fun in the … Nope, the sun doesn’t normally have his hat on but we are Brits! We don’t let something like weather effect our fun.
A festival wouldn’t be a festival without a little (or large, as the case more than often seems to be) down pour. And whilst we should now be used to it, the pesky weather always seems to catch us off guard. Until now.
We’ve compiled the ultimate festival fashion survive kit so you are prepared, whatever the weather. So if you’re off to Glastonbury this weekend (you lucky things, you) check out these field friendly favourites now.
Wellies, £94.99, Hunter at Office
First made cool by Kate Moss at Glastonbury in the ’00s in that micro-shorts-and-wellies-combo that literally gave birth to the festival fashion with know today. Still just as popular, Hunter wellies are not only fashionable in the field, but practical against that mud too.
Umbrella £9.99, New Look
If recent weather is anything to go by, an umbella may just be your best friend at a festival. Go for a bright buy to bring at least a little sunshine to your day. And it’ll double up as a way for your friends to spot you in the crowd when they go for their loo break too. Winning.
Backpack £135, &otherstories
Every festival goer needs a back pack, just make sure it it waterproof. Perfect for carrying all your essentials whilst still be hands free to wave in the air like you just don’t care. Steer clear of material bags in case the rain doesn’t hold off.
Rain mac £39, Topshop
Quite simply, do not leave the house without one. Topshop have really upped the rain mac game this season. Head into store for the best bright macs around. We love this ’90s inspired orange jacket that’ll ensure you stand out from the crowd for all the right reasons.
Day three of the festival and your hair isn’t going to be looking it’s best, especially if it’s been raining. Hello, Monica hair! Hide away your hair sins under a cool tropical print cap. No one need ever know your dirty (hair) secret.
Hoodie £35.99, Mango
Yes, it may be hot first thing in the morning, but who knows how the weather will turn. Roll and pack a hoodie in your back pack so you don’t get the chill when the sun goes down. We love this beautiful blue one from Mango.
So whatever the weather man throws at you, you have got festival fashion nailed. See you in the field.
