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 heading off to Coachella, we’ve sussed your ultimate festival wardrobe, come rain or shine.

For SS17, the old clichés 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. And of course, for true denim fans, you can never go wrong with layering.

To make the look more current, we suggest wearing denim dungarees over a chambray shirt with trumpet sleeves.

Don’t forget about accessories though, these can totally make or break an outfit. For the SS17 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) purse. But for the big festival trend of the season, team your denim with gingham and outfit-making statement jewellery.

When it comes to shoes, although we always suggest packing a trusty pair of wellies (check out Saint Laurent’s swarovski-embellished ones), 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.
