Glastonbury 2016 – The Ultimate Fashion Guide

SHARE

Muddy fields, pumping music and great bands – the Glastonbury weekend has finally arrived.  With Glastonbury’s gates open since Wednesday morning, many festival-troopers are rapidly making their way to southwest England for a jam packed weekend of drinking, dancing and, in all likelihood, debauchery. Not all of us have the fortune of attending the king of the festival circuit and we’re even more green eyed by the fact that punters are predicting it to be the biggest blowout in the festival’s history.

Glastonbury promises to be a magical weekend, especially this year with so many homegrown performers including Jeff Lynne, Adele, Muse and Coldplay – Bob Shennan, Director of BBC Music

What to Pack

Love a good festival? Hate the mud part, losing your mates and lack of decent loos? Don’t we all. Without wanting ruin to your five-day fun fest, lack of preparation for the highly likely quagmire of late nights, booze and lack of sleep can make hindsight a fabulous thing. Fear not as we share our best insider tips for surviving one of the best weekends of your life.

What to Wear

A mix of rainy and stormy spells calls for practical festival outfits at this year’s Glastonbury festival. If you’re deciding what to wear, it’s probably worth taking a look at our outfit inspiration boards.

Boho

Glastonbury just wouldn’t be Glastonbury without denim and hippie threads.  Whilst the temperature is likely to be high during the day, having a bohemian cover up like this on hand for the evenings will help keep any chills at bay and it will also fit flawlessly into the festival’s semi-boho spirit. Breezy straw accents and fringe pieces continue in popularity at musical festivals so round up your look with a straw hat and a tassel bag.

Rocker

There’s nothing quite like the glam of a rock ‘n’ roll outfit and there’s no better time to pay homage than this year, where legends like Muse and Coldplay will be headlining. Key pieces include rocker appropriate boots and a grungy shirt. A rocker look doesn’t need to be all about hardcore studs and chains so we’ve updated it with a feminine lace cut out top – just to keep things in balance.

Pair with: rocking, oversized Ray-Ban®Aviator™ shades

Hipster

The hipster look is a statement get-up that will never look out of place at Glasto. Typical pieces that complete the hipster ensemble include plaid, skinny jeans and retro eyeglasses. Bearing in mind the reported rainy temperatures, these items will be just perfect. We’ve added hip, leather slip on sneakers (for when you want to get comfortable), a metallic bag and a funky monochrome shawl (for cooler evenings).

 Sporty

Coachella Sporty Outfit
You’re there to dance your head off, right? Well, you’re in luck because the whole active wear as day wear shift had made it socially acceptable to wear sporty clothes – outside the gym. Dressing like you’re on your way to your bi-weekly workout (minus the exercise part) is no longer considered a fashion faux pas and it’s now pretty cool to wear clothes which are functional, without compromising the fashion part.  Take some inspiration with pieces you’re most likely to already have at home, like Converse All Star sneakers. Add an on trend hoodie dress for extra comfort and a sleeveless denim jacket to complete a look which has a whole lotta attitude.

Pair with: Oakley Frogskins sunglasses

Hippie

We’ve saved the best til last. That’s right, our favorite way to look fly at Glastonbury is to embrace the free-wheeling vibe of the festival. Capture the excitement by combining elegant elements like maxi dresses, vibrantly colors and crochet knit elements. Statement accessories are ubiquitous — and required. Join on the fun with a headband and bohemian jewelry.

Pair with: retro Ray-Ban round sunglasses
