Ideally, your festival wardrobe needs to look put-together but in a not-even-trying kind of way - it should look like you wear espadrilles, distressed denim and white bandeau crops all the time.
And perhaps you do, but whatever your style (crop tops are not obligatory, obviously), whatever your festival - the look is al fresco. Shorts, sunglasses and kimonos? They're all part of the fun.
For obvious reasons (you'll probably be wasted for the duration AND let's not even go there with the portable toilet situation) you don't want to spend a bomb on this look.
As ever, the trusty high street has everything you need and the summer sales have started (hurrah!) so you can pick yourself up some bargain buys ahead of your imminent crowd surfing.
Key pieces to opt for? We'd definitely recommend a fail-proof pair of denim shorts (check the light wash skinny pair below), fashion trainers you don't mind getting wrecked and a standout item of headgear (snapback cap, floral/feather headband, scrunchie, floppy fedora).
Asos also has some very cool jewelled hair chains - and you HAVE to get yourself some glitter and/or neon makeup.
