The Festival Style Essentials You Need for Summer

As lockdown lifts for good (we think…) one thing we’re all excited about is the return of the festival. Whilst Glastonbury sadly didn’t happen this year, there’s plenty of other day festivals and weekend events worth visiting. Already mentally packing? Here are the top picks you’ll need…

Festival Style Essentials

Denim Shorts

The first thing you should look to pack? A perfectly versatile pair of denim shorts. Great for building a capsule wardrobe around, look to pairs in classic colours (blue, white and black) to curate endless possibilities of ensembles around. Look to offerings from Levi’s, Mango or Crew Clothing for an effortless, quality choice.

A Weather Appropriate Jacket

When it comes to festivals, function and fashion does often intertwine. Whilst a waterproof jacket may not scream ‘style points’, a carefully considered lightweight layer will keep you comfortable, and more importantly – dry. Try a padded gilet from AC36 by Prada, or a waterproof jacket from the likes of Regatta and Geographical Norway.

Must-Have Wellies

I think we can all expect a downpour is unfortunately inevitable at a festival (after all, it is a British tradition!), so why not style it out with an elevated pair of wellies? Fortunately, you can shop the very best at BrandAlley. With a range of styles in different colours, the perfect pair is just a click away.

A Slogan T-shirt

Keeping it casual and cool during festival season is a must. Frankly, what better is there than a statement slogan T-shirt to perfect that aesthetic? Be it your favourite brand. a beloved band or just a fun phrase, pair it with your cut off shorts and wellies for an unparalleled cool girl look.

Festival Accessories

Complete your festival aesthetic with these considered extras…

A Must-Have Water Bottle

We all know the importance of staying hydrated. Make it a stylish affair with one of our water bottles.

The Cosiest Blanket

Whilst festivals can be a raucous affair, we all need a little downtime every now and again. Chill out and cosy up under a warm blanket like one of these.

An All Purpose Bag

Keep it handsfree with a carefully considered backpack. Find a stylish piece that you can enjoy long after festival season, too.
