With all the festival that will be going in the coming weeks and months, it can be daunting in the UK deciding on what to wear as you will be battling the elements as you never know if it will be sunny or pouring down with rain. However, with this in mind you still want to look cool and stylish, so I thought it would be a great idea to style an outfit or two that I found to be in my opinion festival ready! I am being optimistic here and styling for those warmer sunny days, heres to hoping…… Although you could add some pieces to the outfits to make them wearable if it rains.
My first outfit is a dress ensemble, this is my embroidered Zara dress. This off white dress with floral embroidery has a round neck, long sleeves and a back opening that has a button fastening. The dress looks absolutely lovely, there is plenty of vintage character but also looks totally current. By using the Net-A-Porter ribbon as a belt I have tied it around my waist and in a bow at the back to show off my waist. Of course you can use a black belt to do the same thing, I just wanted to do something a little different and reuse the ribbon. The dress is very comfortable and you will not have to worry about it at all. Teamed with my Whistles black fedora hat to give the ensemble a Boho Chic vibe. I have gone for a monochromatic look.
If the weather is not great make sure to take a warm waterproof jacket and some wellies, of course if you a going to festivals on sunnier shores, all you need to add to this ensemble is a pair of comfortable boots or trainers and some sunglasses. The key thing to remember is that your outfit should not be retraining as you want to be able to move about freely, enjoying yourself without having to worry about it.
Here are a few other options to try:
Romper and Kimono: Change the dress for a romper or playsuit in black, go for a Bardot style or cold shoulder style. Pair it with some gladiator sandals in black too, or if your heading to Glastonbury go for some wellies instead. Throw on a Kimono for those festivals that are on sunnier shores and a jacket for those that are not. A cross body bag and some statement jewellery like a show stopping necklace to finish the look.

Maxi dress: A maxi dress is great for those sunnier days, however, I wouldn’t advise it for Glastonbury unless you don’t mind getting mud on it. I would go for a white maxi dress paired with some tan coloured ankle boots, a tan cross body bag, some sunglasses and a trilby hat in white to finish the look: You can find some maxi dresses (here), (here) and (here).
I have styled my outfit with these cute ankle boots from Guess, these are very comfortable to walk around in and are low heeled too. This cross body bag is from missguided, very cute and with wider straps, the bag has enough space for all your essentials. Last but not least my Carrera white sunglasses to complete the look.
