With Coachella happening this weekend and the music festival season definitely upon us, it felt like the perfect time to do this years 'What to Wear to a Music Festival'
With festivals like Coachella and Glastonbury becoming just as much about the fashion as the music it's the perfect opportunity to push the limits of your wardrobe and mix with a bevy of creative types. But a festival wardrobe requires more than just an imagination. It's about practicality and comfort as well….i.e whether you're partying the night away in a dry field in the desert or a muddy field in the South of England, this is no the place for stilettos….get my drift?!
One thing I've noted about my experiences with music festivals (Glastonbury in particular) is bare legs is the way to go…you're going to get muddy or dusty and generally dirty, and if you're camping it's much easier to clean your legs with some baby wipes (essential festival kit!) than your pants!
If you insist on heels, and I don't recommend it, make them a wedge, other wise keep your shoes flat, at Coachella you can get away with sandals, at Glastonbury, it's worth investing in a pair of wellie boots, I'm speaking from experience here!
Avoid light colours, and always wear sunscreen and invest in a good hat…essential for your health!
I've curated a couple of looks for you, but think of them as a blank canvas, feel free to add your own wild and whimsical flair, like I said, use this opportunity to let your creativity swell.
