Heading to a festival involving sun, sand and hot-weather headliners? Well, here’s what to wear once you hit the beach...

ASOS edit featuring a checkerboard shirt, detailed swimwear and Lacoste sliders | ASOS Style Feed

Summer festivals no longer just mean mud. Whether you pick a party on the Croatian coast, or five days of sunshine and sound waves further afield, there’s now a surplus of seaside music gatherings giving Glastonbury a run for its money.


With wellies out of the picture, the first thing to work into your beach festival wardrobe is some waterproof footwear. These white Lacoste sliders are a fresh take on your standard black pair that will go with everything and take up minimal room in your suitcase. Wear them barefoot, or with navy space-dye socks to up the ante.


Next up, go for a pair of plain trunks with cool detailing that will pass as shorts come sunset and a sleeveless T-shirt for extra ventilation. A short-sleeved checkerboard shirt can be put on when you want to smarten things up a little, while a cross-body bag will inject street vibes into your 'fit and store all your essentials.


Finally, pair some oval shades with a black embroidered cap and you're good to go.
