5 Festival Essentials: High Street Edition

Festival season kicked over the weekend, and if you’re feeling a little overwhelmed with regards to what you should be packing in your overnight sack, look no further. We’ve selected five essentials every girl should bring along.

1. Wellies

On your feet or in your bag as a backup plan, a great pair of wellies is the no-brainer piece that you need for trekking the mud at any festival — and that’s especially true if you have to contend with soggy UK weather. So make an investment and splash out on a pair of Hunters, which are available in funky cool patterns or block tones, which can we worn with a plethora of outfits. Why not go a bit crazy with a pair of their Carnaby snakeskin numbers for £125.

2. Sandals

A pair of sandals are a must just in case the weather takes a turn for the hot side of life, and the most appropriate pair of festival sandals has to be a flat pair of gladiators, as the straps on these babies will ensure that your feet don’t budge and nobody wants to deal with a nasty blister when they're trying to have fun. Try on Aldo's at 50 for size. 

3. Denim Shorts

Everybody needs to wear a trusty pair of denim shorts to a festival, as they are just so versatile. You can simply take a long a few different tops to help change the outfit, and very easily dress the look up or down. Topshop are currently doing a great pair for £32.

4. Fringed Bag

Channel your inner festival hobo with a fringed bag. This black one by ASOS at £24.99 would do the job perfectly. 

5. An Army Coat

A good coat is always a wise choice as to brave the elements, and ASOS are currently offering the festival staple in the form a khaki army style coat for just £58.

Well, now that are your basics sorted, go and enjoy yourself.
