How To Festival: As Taught By Glastonbury Trainwrecks + Triumphs
Style at Splendour in the Grass can be hard to nail - you don't want to look basic or boring, but you don't want to be avoided by everyone because the panda onesie you've been wearing for days reeks of Smirnoff Ice and the vegan burger you dropped on yourself while stumbling back to your tent at 4am. So take your style cues for the fast approaching festival by taking notes from this year's Glastonbury - on what not to do.
Get yourself sorted early with our festival edit.
Lesson #1 - Don't try too hard.
Simple, but legit.
Instead, pack easy basics that you don't mind losing/getting muddy/getting 'mixed up' with your tent mate's stuff.
Lesson #2 - No one likes your matching outfits.
If you must, make it subtle. Or like a Beyoncé film clip.
Lesson #3 - If you're going to wear a jumpsuit, do it right.
Camel toe territory.
Daisy nails it - not too sheer, not too tight. Just right.
Lesson #4 - There is such a thing as too much colour.
You don't have to press mute on your colour palette, but khakis, greys + black hide dirt oh so well.
And goddamn do they layer up well.
Lesson #5: Stockings are not pants.
Much like leggings.
Try Alexa's vinyl take or, y'know, your reg pants for tucking into gumboots.
Or skip the pants all together.
Lesson #6: Headdresses are still not okay.
Don't be a dickhead.
Lesson #7: Dress down, not up.
Tulle, ruffles and maxi lengths have their place, but it is not Splendour.
Keep it easy + breezy with floaty mini dresses.
