Festival Style Essentials

One of our favourite things about the summertime is the plethora of festivals going on up and down the country. From June to August, there’s a festival almost every weekend – we think it’s more than acceptable to attend them all…

Whether you’re chilling at Coachella, partying at Parklife or glamping at Glastonbury, it’s imperative that you’ve got your festival look styled to a T.

Favourite Festival Fashion Essentials

We asked Lily, the style expert at The Hut to take us through her must-have festival pieces that any trendsetter shouldn’t leave home without…

A pair of statement wellies

Who says wellington boots have to be boring? They may be for the wet weather (fingers crossed we don’t get any!), but that doesn’t mean you have to blend into the dreary landscape: play with colour, shapes and styles to make your wellies the focal point of your look.

Selfie-worthy sunglasses

Pack some sass with a pair of selfie-worthy sunglasses. Any self-respecting festival veteran worth her salt knows the importance of a pair of luxury sunnies – we’re talking mirrored frames, fun lenses and all-out glam this summer!

 A fringed bag

Fringing is the trend for festival season – the ultimate in boho-chic. Inject some laid-back luxury into your outfit with a suede tasselled bag. Choose a backpack or a cross-body style for the ease of hands-free; if you’ve got all sorts to carry, a larger fringed tote is a festival essential.

A boho kimono

Think of festivals and you’ll think of kimonos! With bold, look-at-me prints, an easy to wear style and relaxed fit, kimonos are lightweight to pack in your luggage and transform any shorts-and-tee outfit into something a little more special.

Seriously stylish sliders

Slide sandals are the epitome of effortless, off-duty luxe; a celebrity and blogger favourite, pair yours with ripped denim shorts and an oversize tee this summer. They are comfy and practical, meaning you’ll be blister-free and stylish all festival long.

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
