Heading to a festival this summer? Don't pack anything until you've browsed our pick of the best festival fashion buys...

Festival fashion is back and more exciting than ever. Whether you’re staycationing at Lovebox and Latitude, or raving at one of the foreign hot spots, we’ve sussed your ultimate festival wardrobe, come rain or shine.

This year, the old cliches are out, and the new season of field fashion styles have had a seriously cool spice up. Trade your neon for something a little more muted and go for khaki, tan and black. Cover-up in a cool kimono and slip back into your frayed denim favourites, just add a few pieces of fringing and you’re good to go.

And of course no festival fashion round-up would be complete without a mention of trusty cut-offs. A true staple, we’re pairing ours with a chic 70s-inspired billowing blouse or on-trend off-the-shoulder blouse.

If the weather’s set to be a bit chilly, take your cue from Hedi Slimane’s festival-ready Saint Laurent show. It’ll lend instantly to edge to everything from tea dresses to denim and knitwear.

Don’t forget about accessories though, these can totally make or break an outfit. For the SS16 festival season we’re going to be sporting some statement sunglasses (great for hiding tired eyes) and carting our essentials about in a handy (and hands-free) belt purse. But for the big festival trend of the season,look to Saint Laurent (again) and team your dresses with patent wellies and an outfit-making sparkly tiara.

When it comes to shoes, although we always suggest packing a trusty pair of wellies, we recommended investing some statement trainers and a pair of suede boots to channel this seasons 70s mood. They’ll work with every outfit combination, be it hot pants and a shirt, a loose-fitting maxi or distressed boyfriend jeans and a tee.

Now we’ve discussed what festival fashion pieces you’ll be folding into your overnight bag, it’s time to snap up the seasons best buys.
