News – Summer Festival Essentials


Festival season is finally here, which means its time to get shopping for those festival essentials. From sunglasses for those scorching summer days to a trusty pair of wellingtons in case of a washout, festival weather can be unpredictable. So we’ve put together our essential festival kit to make sure you are looking your best all weekend.

Feline Fashion

Make sure you’re not squinting at the main stage this summer with the perfect pair of sunglasses. A must have accessory to accompany any festival outfit, try Topshop’s CECE Black Feline Sunglasses (£14) to make sure you’re wearing the most popular lens shape this season. Look chic and fashion-forward in these classic cats shaped shades.

Go Puddle Jumping in Style

Nothing says festival ready more than the classic Hunter Black Original Tall Boots from Schuh (£95-£100) available in both women’s and men’s sizing. Wade through mud and jump in puddles while keeping your feet bone-dry in these timeless wellies from this iconic brand.

Stay Connected

If you haven’t posted it on social media then it didn’t happen right? Don’t miss out on recording your favourite band or taking a snap of your halloumi fries by running out of battery. Make sure you pack a trusty Kit Emergency Charger 6000 MAH Premium Range from EE (£29.99) so you can update your stories all weekend.

Stay Smelling Great

Festivals are not known for their fantastic washing facilities, often you are expected to go without a shower for the weekend and aerosols are rarely permitted. Stay smelling super fresh with Paco Rabanne 1 Million Deodorant Stick available in The Perfume Shop (£21). This cleverly designed deodorant is festival friendly thanks to the fresh, spicy and leather fragrance.

Avoid a downpour

Unfortunately, a waterproof coat is essential for a festival in the British summer. Go bold with a fun print like the H&M Patterned Rain Jacket (£34.99) and make a statement even when it’s raining.
