With Coachella kicking off the festival season this weekend, it’s got us thinking about what to wear this Summer. Whether you’re off to Glasto, Wilderness or a day festival like Wireless, getting your festival wardrobe together ahead of time will save the last-minute dash.

Since Beyonce has sent us all into a Cowgirl frenzy we’re expecting a field of Western boots, embellished hats and micro denim shorts this festival season. If that’s you, keep scrolling for your rodeo-ready looks.

But if you’re not digging the Western trend, this year’s SS24 runway shows brought an array of barely-there pants, sheer textures and metallics, which we’re certain will be making an appearance this year. So, if there’s an elaborate, ‘out there’ trend you’ve been dying to try then a festival is the place to do it.

Just take Sophia Tuxford's outfit that consisted of a gorg corset dress with a little bit of a Western nod. Think cowboy boots and perfectly waved mermaid hair. To die for, right?

Whether you’re hoping to dress in head-to-toe sequins, feathers and tassels or you’re keeping things simple with a double denim number and a pair of wellies, we’ve got you covered.

Dust off your dancing boots, grab your gradual tan and shop these trending festival pieces. Oh, and don’t forget your essentials... SPF, a mini bottle of batiste dry shampoo and a rain jacket.
