"There's no such thing as bad weather, only inadequate clothing."
Wise words Ted Hughes, wise words. As Glastonbury is on the horizon and the British weather is being as unpredictable as ever, let Ted Hughes be your guru this festival season. With festival dressing, plenty of preparation is needed. start here.
Collections this summer are mainly inspired by safari or military themes. Time to think waterproof ponchos,functional multi-pocketed skirts and combat jackets, useful for storing everything needed at a festival. Don't be tempted to go head-to-toe though, mix practical with pretty floral print dresses, or plain tees, to avoid looking too Lara Croft. Tomb raider? i think not.
Shorts are a festival staple; wear them with knee high socks and a giant parka. The parka and playsuit combo worked well for Alexa at Coachella;
My verdict? floral, tribal and tie-dye prints - yes, lace body-con - no. Swimwear and combats - yes, underwear as outerwear - no.
