Festival style for grown-ups

There’s nothing quite like a great British music festival. Rain or shine, with your friends or with your kids, an electric atmosphere is guaranteed and the crowd is never put off by a bit of bad weather. However, with our weather throwing its usual temperamental tantrum, it can be hard to pack for every eventuality. Sunglasses or rain coat? Shorts or trousers? It can be a ruthless military procedure to determine what to bring along and one mistake could see you shin deep in mud as your best white sandals get ruined. But never fear, for we have created a fail-safe plan to see you through festival season.

This beautiful Vila ViTanne white boho dress is perfectly suited to a weekend at the likes of Latitude or Green Man and versatile enough to be styled 4 ways to withstand either the blazing heat or torrential rain. It incorporates this year’s hot trend, embroidered detail, and boasts a drop hemline at the rear to channel 70s cool.

Cool/overcast weather:

We’re often quick to accuse our climate of being wet and dark all the time, but more often than not it’s simply overcast with a bit of breeze. This light blue denim jacket by Part Two Arelis oozes laid back chic, while also being a practical cover-up for cooler weather. It will also nicely balance the girliness of the dress with a bit of toughness for a more grown up look.  

We’re all going on a summer holiday:

Going to a festival with your family doesn’t mean sacrificing style for practicality. You can easily weave the two together (no pun intended) with this handy Becksondergaard Majori Mansion bag. Large enough to store all the suncream and sandwiches you need, yet still complimentary to the crisp whiteness of the dress, this bag is the perfect all-rounder.. It would also be a fantastic transitory piece for summer holidays to the beach and at only £29 it won’t break the bank!

Rain, rain, go away.

In the event of a complete downpour you don’t have to smother yourself in a poncho to keep dry and compromise your look. This Fransa Rarain stripe raincoat is fashionable yet sensible choice, playing on this year’s hottest stripe trend.

Here come the girls:

Finally, why not colour clash and pair this stunning dress with the Becksondergaard Adrienne Mini in Golden Glow bag? This mellow yellow suede bag holds all the girls’ weekend essentials and the statement colour really pops against the white dress.

That’s all for now. Happy festivaling folks!
