After our 10 Summer 2013 Music Festivals That You Have to Visit post earlier this week, we thought we’d carry on the theme into our Weekly Outfit, and provide you with some substance to feed your sartorial needs while you enjoy the music, revelry and everything else a music festival has to offer. There are enough ‘Top 10 Festival Essentials’ lists knocking about the internet to satisfy your ‘what to pack’ criteria, but what about your ‘what to wear’ criteria? Arguably way more important. And even if it isn’t, you’re going to need to find a way to balance your regular outfit choices with the demands of potentially uneven territory, frequently changing weather conditions and equal amounts of comfort and style. Hopefully we ticked all the boxes.
Tower Records x Marmot Poncho
If you’re going to any festival that isn’t in the desert, you’ll be thankful for packing a waterproof. But this doesn’t have to mean abandoning all style, as Tower Records teamed up with outdoor clothing company Marmot for this firework print poncho. Buy it now from Tower Records.
Rascals College Logo Tank Top
Let the air get to your armpits to minimize damage to other peoples olfactory senses with a tank top. This white one by Rascals features a flower printed logo, which might also help you stand out in a crowd of people, thus minimizing the chance of your friends losing you. Get it now from SOTO.
Our Legacy First Shirt
That lovely tank top isn’t gonna cut it when the sun goes down, so here’s a lovely shirt from Our Legacy to throw over the top of it. It’s made from 98% linen so if you forget to take it off when the sun comes back up again, you won’t get too hot. It’s available now from Oi Polloi.
NEIGHBORHOOD Bucket Hat
We can only hope for perfect weather at festivals, but don’t get silly with your sun exposure. It’s at its highest from 12 p.m.-3 p.m. so use this hat from Japanese label NEIGHBORHOOD to protect your head, already weary from too much beer. It will also work wonders at disguising three-day unwashed hair. Buy it now from The Goodhood Store.
Perks & Mini Nomads Land Marbel Shorts
Tie-dye is a big look for anything alternative, not least a music festival. Let your hair down and go for this pair by Perks & Mini – they’re an Australian brand so you can rely on them to do it right. Available now you can buy them from The Goodhood Store.
Nike Lunar Flyknit Chukka
Wearing your brand new trainers to a festival might not be regarded by many as a smart move, but when you’ve slipped your tired feet into this pair, the comfort might make you realize otherwise. Cop a pair from Solebox.
