Festival Fashion: What to Wear
The festival season is here! When it comes to roughing it in a tent, traipsing through muddy fields and classily partying near portaloos, dressing stylishly is an uphill battle, especially after a heavy first day. We are now living in a time when image consciousness is at it’s peak. We all want to stand out from the crowd with our attire and that can’t be more appropriate when it comes to festivals.

So to give you some outfit inspiration on what you can rock in order to remain looking good all weekend, we’ve listed what you need to wear!
As mentioned, Britain’s unpredictable weather usually proves havoc for your packing as one minute its can be sunny and the next it’s torrential rain. If you attempt to be sensible and take a big coat, chances are it will be glorious all week and it will just end up taking up more room in your bag.

The trickiest piece to pick for a festival… Shoes have become the most conscious and adored piece of any man’s wardrobe and the modern man is highly precious over his collection. On a normal day, the thought of scuffing or dirtying up your footwear is not a welcome thought but when it comes to a festival, you’re going to have to accept that they’ll take some damage. That being said, it doesn’t mean you should compromise on your style just because they might get a mark!
