Festival street style
By Gavin Jewkes, 11 July 2014
It's over a week since you returned from Glastonbury, and you've finally washed the mud and glitter out of your hair. But what's this? You've already got your next few days of music and mayhem lined up?
Well, if you're heading somewhere less boggy than Worthy Farm and dressing nicely rather than sensibly is viable option, here's a selection of outfits worn at last weekend's comparatively dirt-free (and, sadly, Drake-free) Wireless Festival in London to inspire your look.
This guy's truly got to grips with summer layering. Keep your outfit versatile, like his, by making use of light layers, which allow you to peel them on and off at will.
Ah yes, that perennial menswear favourite: the check shirt. Not only does this make for a strong festival look, its hefty pattern hides a multitude of sins (and fluids).
You can't bring the fun if you're not prepared to go big with an audacious jacket. This chap's paired his acid-bright coat with shorts, so he's got all bases covered for a British festival, which will doubtless be plagued by intense heat one minute and biblical rain the next.
Wearing army shorts with a T-shirt covered in ice-lollies shouldn't work. But this man proves that with confidence, a goatee, and robust self-esteem you can make pretty much any outfit succeed at a festival.
Box-fresh kicks and socks are a bold move when it comes to treading the fields at a festival. But sometimes you've got to go with your heart, not your head. Especially if the result is this fresh.
