Alexa Chung's Glastonbury Dress Is One I'd Gladly Wear, Field or No Field

After a two-year hiatus, we were more excited than ever to see what the stylish Glastonbury-goers were wearing, and as always, Alexa Chung has nailed it. Styling a vibrant blue dress from Pleats Please Issey Miyake, a Barbour jacket and Saint Laurent lace-up boots, Chung proved that festival style in a shopping-conscious era is all about hardworking pieces that can go from tent to dinner party and beyond. 

For years, festival dressing has stood apart as its own fashion category. But with more of us looking to invest in clothes that we will wear for years to come, festival fashion is looking a little different for 2022. Gone are the days of buying outfits that will work for three days of mud and music. Festival style icons—our favourites being Alexa Chung and Sienna Miller—are showcasing outfits that are just as chic in a field as they are on city streets.

Chung’s Glastonbury look is one of her best festival outfits yet. 

It's therefore no surprise that Chung's pleated dress and lace-up boots have caught our eye. The iconic pleating of Pleats Please Issey Miyake shows off the brand's craftsmanship and has plenty of styling options to make it a worthwhile investment. After decades of wellies being commonplace, boots are edging their way into becoming the new festival norm, and we can see why. A trusty pair is a wardrobe staple that can be worn with almost anything, which means they have a low cost per wear.

Whether you're heading to a festival this summer or not, you can copy this dress-and-boots combination for almost any summer plans. Shop the look and more Pleats Please Issey Miyake dresses below.
