The Ultimate Festival Survival Guide

Festival season is upon us and while we all love a good boogy when the sun is shining, when the heavens open, surviving in a tent with just your festival essentials is not always the easiest!  So we have put our heads together and come up with our five top tips for surviving festivals this year. 

RULE NUMBER ONE: Pack light!

If you are anything like us, ‘pack’ and ‘light’ are two words that are not to be used in the same sentence.  However, after years of lugging huge backpacks around festivals, experience has taught to cut down to your absolute essentials when packing.  Think about how you can work ten key items to make several looks.  Our latest BoohooTV shows how to do just this, mixing and matching key items into different looks! Don’t forget, a maxi dresses are not festival-friendly - they might be perfect in the sun but when the mud kicks they are not so chic!

RULE NUMBER TWO: Waterproof everything

Wellies are an essential and don’t forget you will be walking a long way so pack multiple pairs of socks. Rain ponchos are a must and don’t forget you will need layers for cool evenings so pack a jumper.  Once you have experienced a wash out at a festival, you will understand the importance of our next top tip: waterproof your underwear!  That is, place your underwear in a waterproof bag and you will be laughing when you get a tent leak.

Dare to bare! Matching crop tops and shorts are all the rage this season and were spotted all over the catwalk from Versace to Dolce and Gabanna, from Prada to Nina Ricci.  Now we know that this flesh-baring duo may be a little daunting for some but fret not, we have a few handy tips to make this trend accessible to all.  
For you brave girls out there, why not go all out and double up on print with a bralet and hot pants.  Take a look at our flower print Beckie Cut Off Floral Denim Shorts and Ashley Cross Back Floral Denim Crop Top.  
However if you not so keen on revealing all this Spring, try out a peplum fruit print bralet with some high waisted shorts.  Check out the Alex Peplum Corset and Layla Poplin Print High Waist Shorts!  Alternatively if you want to show a bit of skin team a printed bralet with some high waisted denim shorts or jeans for a look perfect for festivals and summer holidays.  However top tip of the day has to be to wear your midriff-baring bralet with a sheer top to show off a peekaboo piece of pattern whilst not revealing all!
