Festival season is upon us, bringing with it cold pints, slamming headliners, and (hopefully) some sunshine. 'Festival fashion', though, is often synonymous with some pretty dodgy concepts – think cultural appropriation, tie-dye and tassels galore – when really, your in-field style needn't differ too much from your regular aesthetic. Rather than turn up dressed for a costume party, we'd prefer to incorporate some of spring's best pieces into an outfit we'll wear time and time again.
There are some practical issues to address; stomping boots or wellies are the most practical for countryside festivals, where a mudslide is never out of the question, whereas looser styles like jumpsuits are more fitting for beachside events. You can't go wrong with a belt bag, and thanks to Gucci's quilted offering, there's a plethora of high street options to choose from. Sunnies are always a must (if only to conceal a hangover), as are comfortable sandals that will last am to pm if you're headed to a desert festival.
