How to Dress for a Festival When You're a Fashion-Conscious Grown-Up

When you think of festival fashion, do floral crowns, denim hot-pants, body glitter, fringed waistcoats, and wellies come to mind? Well, times have changed, and now, the festival uniform has evolved into something much chicer and grown-up.

Turns out that your field attire can be practical and pretty in equal measure, as long as you avoid a few key items. Firstly, jumpsuits and playsuits are a no-go. Sure, they may look cute, but when you can no longer avoid using the portaloos, you'll wish you'd worn something easier to navigate yourself out of.

Flimsy sandals are ill-advised, too. Not only will your feet look disgusting before the day's out, but you'll also run the risk of stepping in something unsavoury or having your tootsies stepped on. If you insist on wearing footwear other than boots, we recommend investing in more substantial, chunky-strapped sandals instead.

So what do appropriate festival outfits look like in 2019? Handily, the ones below.
