Festival fashion 2019: How to look the part this year

It’s time to dig out your mud-splattered tent, buy lashings of glitter (biodegradable, of course) and start planning a long weekend’s worth of killer looks. 

Music festival fashion is bold, fun and OTT, giving you the opportunity to experiment and let it all hang out – tastefully, please. 

This year it will be all about neon, hiking boots and cowboy boots. So whether you’re at Wireless for the day, sunny Coachella or rainy Glastonbury, these are the trends to watch out for. 


Lime Cropped Neon Puffer Jacket, £50 (PrettyLittleThing

Although summer-ready pastel hues, the resurgence of retro tie-dye and popular animal prints are bound to make an appearance on the festival scene, nothing can outshine the neon trend.

Blinding hues of pink, orange, yellow and a large dash of lime are set to be everywhere this festival season. If nothing else, it will prove very useful for finding your friends in the crowds.

The Denim Co-ord

Pink Acid Wash Denim Set (Topshop)

Two-sets have long been a festival staple due to their ease and versatility, and a denim co-ord is going to be the go-to outfit this year. 

Chic, subtle and with the option to mix and match throughout the summer. We love this pastel sink combo from Topshop.

Cowboy boots

Ganni Cowboy Boots (Browns)

Ditch your wellies for a pair of cowboy boots this year. 

The western trend is still dominating the footwear game and thanks to the cowboy boot’s robust design and knee-high length, they’ll be in a muddy field near you soon.

Hiking Boots

Grenson x House of Holland boots (Grenson)

A sturdy black boot is nothing new in our festival wardrobe but, this year, your trusty DMs will be overridden by chunky trekking boots. 

The spring/summer 2019 catwalks bought the unmissable boot back from the depths of fashion faux pas territory, making hiking trainers and boots one of the most popular shoe silhouettes for summer. From plain black to coloured laces and varying adornments, there are tonnes of styles to choose from.

Faux leather chest harness bag (ASPS )

If you were surprised that bumbags managed to make a successful return on the fashion scene last year, just wait until you see the must-have hands-free bag for 2019.

Harnesses are sure to be spotted in the crowds this festival season, thanks to a slew of military-inspired chest bags and utility vests on the catwalks at Louis Vuitton and Fendi.

Bucket hats
