Festival Essentials & Outfit Ideas: Summertime Chic

Festival essentials and outfit ideas for summertime chic

Peak summertime is so close we can almost taste it, and packing your festival essentials is key, whether you’re going to Green Man or Glastonbury- once those line-ups have been released, it’s game on!

If you’re wondering what to wear to a festival, we’ve got your back. Our festival outfits will give you inspo for days.

Festival first-timer? Survival essentials

If you’re braving the festival world for the first time this summer, think smart and make sure you’ve got the survival essentials covered. These are the absolute musts;

    1. Portable charger (all those #festivalselfies are bound to drain your phone battery)
    1. Plasters- be the festival heroine and come prepared, someone will always need a plaster
    1. Dry shampoo- for when your hair needs a floral refresh the morning after
    1. Paracetamol (a godsend after a few too many Proseccos)
  1. Extra toiletries – a toothbrush, mini toothbrush and some deodorant will keep you feeling human
When you're partying in a field for three days there are some festival essentials that you just need. Find them here at Peacocks

Don’t let the weather cramp your style

This is the perfect opportunity to show your legs some sun- we’re not going to let the weather tell us we can’t wear our shorts shorts! Check the forecast before you go and make sure you’ve got your layering game nailed in case the heavens open.

Sun’s out, guns out

If you’ve been blessed with some glorious sunshine on festival day, it’s time to get your tan on. Bring along a pack of wet wipes and handheld fan to help you keep your cool after a wild time on the front row.

Pair your staple denim shorts with bold colours and eye-catching prints (don’t be that friend that gets lost); let’s be honest, we’re all a bit braver at a festival than at the office so make the most of it and show off your wild side!

Breathable trainers and reflective sunnies are vital for full-on comfort.

*Mum tip*
Remembering sun cream is a must, but if you’re bringing little ones, check, check and check again. You don’t want to pay extortionate prices at the festival or have your day cut short.

Wondering what to wear to a festival in the sun is a great problem to have, and denim shorts are a must. Pair yours with eye-catching prints and bold colours.

Keep the rain at bay

A waterproof mac will be your new bestie during festival season- simply roll it up like a burrito and pop it in your bumbag for stylish peace of mind.

No need to sacrifice those short shorts either, layer some tights underneath and take an iconic pair of wellies (whether clouds are looming or not- you’ll still need them for the Portaloos!)

UK weather is unpredictable! If you need festival outfit ideas for a rainy day, our waterproof macs and stylish wellies will have you (literally) covered.

*Mum tip*
Make sure the kids wear long socks with their wellies- if their feet are rubbing you’ll definitely hear about it!

Be the Boho queen

The Boho vibe is always on-trend at a festival, so it’s the perfect place to showcase your bohemian side. Experiment with delicate floral prints and lightweight fabrics so you can live your forest nymph fantasy.

Is a festival outfit really complete without a flower crown and some sparkly face jewels? Accessories with some eye-catching final touches for the Instagrammable look. This gorgeous yellow dress will be available online and instore next week!

Boho is always the go-to style for festival outfit ideas. Choosing a flowing, summery dress and finish your look with a flower crown and face jewels!
