What to Wear to Festivals This Summer

They're back!

Festivals are making a comeback this summer, so what will you wear?

There are so many colourful and creative trends this year that lend themselves perfectly for festivals – think crochet, bucket hats, metallics, cowboy boots…the list goes on.

The best thing about these trends is that they’ll work the rest of the time too, so you don’t need to spend hundreds on pieces you’ll only wear once.

As always, I recommend only buying pieces that you can team with at least 5 other things you own. I know it isn’t always as easy as that, but many of these are ideal for those following this rule.

Accessories are also your best friend. They’re often disregarded, but they have the ability to change a look completely so you don’t even need to spend a fortune to make an impact at festivals this summer.

I’ve done some hunting and found 31 festival-ready pieces that don’t break the bank.
