Editor's Picks: Best of Festival Fashion Essentials

We're right in the middle of the UK's festival season, with so many great events like Reading & Leeds, V Festival and Bestival still to come our way. The trick to British festivals is finding the right wardrobe that will make your camping experience comfortable and enjoyable; you don't want to let the rainy British weather ruin your festival plans!

At Country Attire, we know a thing or two about festivals and we are well versed in the key pieces to wear to a festival that offer both style and function in any weather conditions. The CA marketing team have brought together their favourite festival fashion pieces from the website to offer some inspiration that will help you to survive festival season in style.

L-R: Joules Coast Waterproof Hooded Jacket - £79.95. Vivienne Westwood Derby Harlequin Tartan Backpack - £344.95.

"This Joules Coast Jacket stood out to me with its' pretty light blue colour. Adhering to the traditional seafarer style, this jacket is fully waterproof and is finished with a fun nautical print to the lining to reinforce that maritime theme. I see this as the perfect festival staple as it is lightweight and functional without compromising on your overall look."

"Sticking with the pastel theme, this Derby Harlequin Backpack combines a clash of hues to create an innovative take on traditional tartan in signature Vivienne Westwood style. What makes this backpack ideal for festivals is the small and compact size with a secure drawstring and popper fastening; allowing you to carry the festival essentials without too much fuss."

L-R: Stetson Newberg Fedora Hat - £124.95. Dr Martens Core Afleck Brogue Boots - £129.95. Fred Perry Reissues Tartan Shirt - £84.95.

"I think those finishing touches really count when you’re trying to create a knock-out outfit from the few clothes you have space to pack; so leave some room for a hat or cap like this Stetson Newberg Fedora. With its' bohemian design and Navajo feather detailing, this fedora is perfect for bringing simple outfits to life. An easy yet effective way to make your festival look pop, the right accessory can save you plenty of packing room for your other festival ‘essentials’."

"Festival fashion isn’t solely confined to the muddy masses, so set your sights to the stage where headliners Tinnie Tempah, Ricky Wilson and Alex Turner have traded in their wellies for a pair of brogue boots.  Though a simple switch, a quality pair of brogue boots like the Dr Martens Afleck Style offers the same protection as wellies, but with the additional sartorial flair that will put you head and shoulders above the other festival-goers."

"It goes without saying, but sometimes you just can’t beat a classic. This Tartan Teal Shirt by Fred Perry offers effortless style which can be thrown on with ease to meet that timeless indie look. For a smart casual approach, roll back your sleeves and fasten up your buttons or for a better festival feel, layer the shirt over your favourite printed vest and you’re ready to go."

L-R: Hunter Original Lightweight Smock Jacket - £139.95. Timberland Nellie Chukka Double Waterproof Boots - £119.95. Ray Ban Justin Sunglasses with Mirrored Lens - £107.95

"Even with the most optimistic of weather forecasts, it's always best to be prepared for any sudden downpours with a rain jacket. I love the vibrant colour of the Hunter Lightweight Smock Jacket as it stands out really well against even the greyest of landscapes. This rain jacket offers great water resistant protection and it also has a pack away construction - so when the sun finally breaks through, you can conveniently fold this jacket away into your bag."

"Instead of the standard welly fare, A pair of rugged Timberland boots are the perfect festival alternative. The Nellie Chukka Boots are expertly crafted with waterproof navy leathers, a seam-sealed construction and high traction soles to tackle any muddy patches with ease. Plus, I love the addition of the anti-fatigue footbed for comfort and support so you can keep partying all night long!"

"Hopefully the sun will make an appearance this summer and a festival is the perfect excuse to break out these Ray Ban Justin Sunglasses. I really like the cool, androgynous frame silhouette and how they are finished with mirrored effect lenses for an extra sartorial statement. With 100% UV protection, the sun's glare won't get in the way of you seeing your favourite headline acts."
