Whether it be Download, Glasto, Reading/Leeds, Bestival or any of festival, big or small that you’re gearing up for this summer, here are our ‘Do’s and Don’t’s’ of Festival Fashion to keep you looking chic even by the last day of the festival!

DO
Layering – Layered pieces are perfect for festival especially ‘British’ festivals as you never know when the weather will turn ugly; which at most UK festivals seems to be most of the time. Layer simple pieces with a statement jacket or jumper that you can easily wrap around your waist when the sun eventually comes out.

DON’T
Heels – Surely this is a given you’d think? But no, countless girls struggle through the mud in an effort to look good. But take it from us ladies, it will just ruin your weekend and you’ll end up abandoning your new heels in the thick mud. So for everyone who has now realised they have no shoes to take, why don’t you try….

DO
Wellies – The festival favourite and they have earned that position for a reason. Wellies keep us dry from the mud and the rain and free from all the dusty ground. Not only that, they look great too! Team a pair of willies with some thick knee-high socks and you’re ready to take the weekend by storm.

DON’T
Unnecessary Accessories – We get it, you got over excited whilst packing and just threw in every accessory you own. But when getting ready each day at the festival, please rethink this decision. Lots of necklaces or big earrings will just get in the way when you’re trying to get through the crowd and would probably get broken anyway. So whilst at festivals adhere to the age-old rule: less is definitely more.

DO
Sunglasses – The ultimate tool to get you through the morning hangover whilst still allowing you to look cool and collected. Then once you’re feeling fresh once again, they’re perfect for scrapping back your not so fresh unwashed hair. Who knew sunglasses had so many uses?

DON’T
Massive Bags – Of course you’ll be popular when you’ve bought in blankets for everyone to sit on and smuggled beer inside said blankets for everyone in your massive backpack, however you will be suffering all day. Not only is it not nice for you to be lugging round a big bag all day, but it’s not nice for the people around you in the crowd either, getting hit by it every time you move. Leave the big bags at the tents people!

DO
Bum Bags – Instead consider a bum bag! Bum bags have even made a fashionable comeback over the past few years, so you won’t have to worry about looking like a 50 year tourist. Bum bags are perfect for festivals as they fit in just your essentials and make it easy to keep an eye out for pickpockets.

DON’T
Bandeaus  – Of course they may look good and will ensure you don’t get tan lines. But between energetic dancing and people thinking its funny to pull them down at any moment, they are a recipe for disaster. Leave the nip slips to Janet Jackson.

DO
Fancy Dress – If there’s a place for fancy dress, it is festivals. Dress up alone or in a group, either way they’re a great way to add more excitement to your weekend. If your costumes are really good though, do be prepared to be in hundreds of group photos with random drunk people who love what you’re dressed as.

DON’T
Vanessa Hudgens Head-Dresses – Finally, we all know shes the ‘Queen of Coachella’ but here in the UK if you rock up in a massive tribal head-dress that obscures peoples view you’re more likely to be hit out of the way than congratulated for your style.
