WHAT TO WEAR TO

Heading to a winter festival?

By Lucy Glen, 16 June 2017

If you're at the what-the-hell-do-I-pack stage of your winter festival planning, chances are you're not alone. You need to consider which outfits look good and keep you warm - but you can just sit back and focus on what bands to watch and we'll sort out what to pack. Too easy.

Go minimal with your packing and embrace a tracksuit: the 2-for-1 solution for the lazy terminally chill. Wear the hoodie over a floral dress for serious skater-girl vibes. And because the track pants double-up as sleep wear it's really a no brainer.

 

Wasted Paris tracksuit joggers: $109

ASOS beanie

Hats off to you

Now, we know the age-old trick of wearing a hat to hide those bad hair days, but this will also keep you toasty-warm. Bonus points for the racing stripe so your buds can spot you in the crowd.

 

ASOS beanie: $16

Floral dress

No festival is complete without a floral dress to frolic in. When temps are low wear with stockings or long socks and some sturdy boots for a failsafe outfit.

 

Boohoo tea dress: $44

Bumbag

Hands-free

Listen, no one has time for physically carting around a bag at a festival. A bumbag is the solution. Hands-free dancing + keeping valuables secure = dream result.

 

ASOS bum bag: $50

ASOS Creeper Boots

Tough-looking black boots are the order of the day for festivals. Fact. These ones can be worn with jeans and warm jacket for lousy-weather days or equally as sleek with tea dress and thick socks.  

 

ASOS Creeper boots: $56

Long socks ASOS

Game changer

Forget the mini sneaker-socks this festival season and opt for calf length B-ball-inspired ones, they will give you some serious game. 

 

ASOS calf length socks: $7

Dry hair shampoo ASOS

The only one

Question: If you could only take one item to a festival what would it be? Answer: Dry shampoo. That is the actual truth.

 

Dry shampoo: $10

Bershka Rain jacket

Pack a mac

Even if the rain doesn't make an appearance it's always better to be prepared right? Also, when rain coats look this extra it would be a crying shame not to pack one.

 

Bershka festival mac: $60

Sunglasses for winter festival

Statement sunnies

Give your face some love with these pink-lensed sunnies. Perfect for legit sunshine (it could happen) or simply for hiding behind when it's too early for eye contact.

 

ASOS pink cat eye sunglasses: $24

Face wipes for winter festival

Keep it clean

Priority packing is key for a festival, save a whole bunch of room on cleansers and bottles by using wipes for everything. Forget the phrase 'shower in a can'...more like 'shower in a pack'. 

 

Yes To sensitive wipes: $8
