    Forget Kate Moss and Alexa Chung, meet the new breed of future festival fashion icons that are set to wow this summer season. Take your style cue from these lot…

    Lianne La Havas

    Aluna Francis

    One half of AlunaGeorge (arguably the most stylish half – sorry George), Aluna Francis is going to be everywhere this festival season. Aluna’s vocals appear on one of the dance songs of the year so far, Disclosure’s White Noise, so expect some fabulous style scores from this gorgeous 24-year-old.

    Sky Ferreira

    If you don’t already know who Sky Ferreira is, you better swat up quick sharp. Having had a slightly stop-start break into the music industry, 2013 is going to be Sky’s year. The 20-year-old is one of the faces of Saint Laurent’s pre-fall 2013 collection so expect a high end twist on her usual vampish goth style this festival season.

    Lianne La Havas

    Lianne La Havas, whose debut album, Is Your Love Big Enough, is a must-listen (just FYI), has her own unique style. And we’re obsessed. This is one of the new style set who will be owning festival season – mark our words.

    Solange Knowles

    The younger sister of Beyoncé is lined up to play several UK festivals this summer, including this weekend’s Field Day (25 May) and Glastonbury. Her style is much more experimental than her bling-loving mega superstar sister’s and all the better for it, we say.

    Cara Delevingne

    The world’s current favourite model (is there a fashion house she hasn’t fronted this year?) has already proved her worth when it comes to backstage festival cool, but we’re expecting the shades to be bigger and the skinny jeans to be better this year.

    Suki Waterhouse

    The model and former girlfriend of Miles Kane has had plenty of practise perfecting her summer styling. Come rain or shine, we’re expecting big things, Ms Waterhouse.

    *Psst. She’s also rumoured to be dating Bradley Cooper, so we’re hoping she might step out with an extra special bit of arm candy this year.

    Leigh Lezark

    Misshapes DJ Leigh Lezark mixes bonkers goth with California cool so easily it hurts, and her new blonde ‘do was just made for festival fun times.

    Kate Bosworth

    Though she’s no newcomer to the scene, as the face of Topshop’s festival 2013 collection, we can expect to see the actress working the very coolest pieces from said range all summer along. Hurrah.
