Everyone’s got their tents ready and the weather’s looking gloomy – this can only mean one thing. Glastonbury is here.
The festival was started in 1970 the day after Jimi Hendrix died and ever since Worthy Farm has become arguably the UK’s best known country residence. Musical highlights of this year’s festival include headliners Beyoncé and Morrissey, cult bands such as Warpaint and Anna Calvi and mega groups Hercules and Love Affair and Queens of the Stone Age. But never mind the music; everyone knows that at Glastonbury it’s as much about the fashion as it is the music.
For the authentic Glastonbury look it’s all about a pair of cuffed Hudson shorts, some sturdy waterproof boots or wellies and whatever top you don’t mind dowsing in mud. Add a cross-body bag in a tan brown for festival essentials (camera, phone, sanitizer…) and, for a hint of glamour, a pair of sunglasses and a classic parka à la Kate Moss and Sienna Miller, stalwarts of the Glastonbury scene.
