Its festival season and we're headed for some loud music, rain and lots of mud! Cue the standard attire for british festivals with key pieces being the Parka, the wellies and a pair of denim shorts! We're a short fall away from the bohemian, hippy Californian style that Coachella brings with it from vintage style lace dresses sported with a pair of old school Converse to overly worn ankle boots and oversized floppy hats - we just don't have the weather for it! Instead, we embrace our traditional weather and combine fashionable decisions based on practicality. Without consiously knowing, the usual festival attire is a huge nod to British born and bred pieces...

As we can't guarantee what the unpredictable weather will be like, we sometimes need to prepare for the worst! A Parka with a hood attached is a good idea but depending on what type of festival you're at, you may need to take an umbrellaBarbour have a wide range of suitable jackets to wear to festivals from waterproofs, waxed and hooded lightweight summer variations, see the Buxton and the Shore Wax Jacket for some great examples.

For a festival such as EDC, Wireless or Lovebox that do not require camping out, a pair of Converse or Vans may suffice, but if its for the whole weekend, you're headed down the welly root! Dating back to the 1800's, wellies were named after the first Duke of Wellington and used in battle, particularly in WW1, when Hunter (formerly the North British Rubber Company) were asked to provide wellington boots to the British Army. Since then, Hunter have been rewarded a Royal Warrant as well as being the number one choice for the fashion consious festival goer worldwide. Of course it helps when A listers from the film, TV and fashion world are all seen donning boots with the recognisable white, red and black rectangular Hunter label at Glastonbury and festivals alike, its no suprise that this long standing boot is still popular today.

The main attire is simple; usually consisting of denim shorts and a cute little top, nothing particularly special. Check out Superdry for some great festival pieces or opt for a coordinated two piece with the Michael Kors Eyelet Shorts and Top. Completing a look with final touches, a pair of designer sunglasses are the way to go. Many seem to opt for a branded pair due to most having a classic style that won't lose trend and can be worn year after year. See this as an investment, with brands such as Michael Kors, Chanel, Gucci and many more to choose from.
