One of the most famous festivals to take place was the Woodstock festival of 1969. Also known as ‘Three days of peace and music’ the 2 day concert was initially planned as a ‘one off’ so four young chaps could invest their money to build a recording studio.
After finding a large, unused area that would home 50,000 revellers, the event attracted 500,000. Sex, drugs and rock and roll, the prolonged event caused uproar but huge media attention and has given the World festival culture.
The Black Boot
With the military and boyfriend trends still dominating the cat walks and a favourite for celebrities, the black boot is on our festival hit list.
We love the versatility of this staple, looking great with vibrant prints, teamed simply with a pretty, pastel dress or even layered with denim cut offs and a jumper as Diana Vickers sports.
When the mud is nowhere to be seen, give your feet the freedom they deserve with sandals and flats. Cut out detailing and bold buckles are key this season so opt for a neutral colour like Heidi Range, and let your clothes do the talking. Works great with floral prints!
The Classic Essential
When we mention festivals we usually think of mud and that means ‘wellies’. Even super models like Kate Moss make staying in the mud chic. But don’t wait for the rain, as we’ve seen on the catwalk, festival styling this year means wellies are in. They’re perfect for light layering and great with shorts.
Plus, if the mud takes over, why not make a ‘Welly Henge’ like they do at Glastonbury with all of the abandoned wellies.
