Festival season is finally here, which of course means fingers crossed for sun but being prepared for the rain, we Brits are nothing if not practical, even when we’re having the time of our lives in the middle of a field.
The key to successful festival packing is keeping it light, choosing clothes that are versatile and can be layered up or down as the weather dictates. And of course, don’t forget your wellies.
Here are our team’s picks for the best festival wear this season
Made from hardwearing cotton so they won’t lose their shape and in classic navy that will work with everything else you cram into your bag.
An absolute festival essential, this lightweight but waterproof raincoat packs away to almost nothing. Don’t leave home without it.
If you can’t wear a pair of posh wellies to a festival then where can you? Gently sloping to make them flattering and with a grosgrain ribbon detail.
A printed lining with a translucent synthetic rubber outer makes these waterproof Chelsea boots really stand out from the crowd.
With 100% UVA and UVB protection you’ll want these sunglasses close to hand, just in case the sun does decide to peek out. Packaged in a soft pouch case so you can keep them in your bag safely, on the off chance that it doesn’t…
Cleverly made from paper so it’s lightweight but sturdy enough to see you through the day – and evening too. Perfect for sun shade and those inevitable not-so-great hair days.
