If when we say festival, you automatically think of Cheltenham – then this guide is for you! On the surface, gin-loving, welly-wearing country girls are almost over qualified to spend the weekend partying in a field, but we know that our country girls enjoy the finer things in life, so we’ve put together a little survival guide so that you can experience all the fun of the other kind of festival in the style and luxury that you deserve!
Stylish festival footwear
You may spend your life in wellies down on the farm or out in the field, but your old faithful Le Chameau boots are to music festivals as jeans are at Royal Ascot: comfortable, but completely out of place. Instead, opt for a pair of tall Hunter Boots to pull off that ‘supermodel at a festival’ look while staying true to your country roots. If you fancy mixing up your style for the weekend, but still want a high quality pair of waterproof boots, then these edgy Barbour biker style wellies or a pair floral welly boots like those seen at Joules are ideal for partying ‘til dawn!
Dressing to impress
If there’s one thing our country girls know how to do, it’s dressing for an occasion – so why should festival season be any different? Although we must urge you to leave your pristine white jeans and tweed at home, there’s nothing to say you can’t rock pretty floral or denim dress with muddy wellies, and definitely bring along your favourite headwear – a fedora is a must have at a festival and will instantly bring your country chic look together.
Every smart country girl will want to keep her essentials close to hand, but your usual statement handbag is far too precious to bring to a music festival, not to mention it’s far easier to dance when you’re hands free! We love the Dubarry Clara bag for its, style, quality and versatility, but if you want something that will really make you stand out from the crowd the Joules Tourer bags are for you!
Keep it covered!
Country girls are made of stern stuff, and a life lived outdoors has prepared them for even the toughest of weather, so a little bit of rain at a festival will be water off a duck’s back! If you want to rock an iconic festival look, then look no further than your favourite Barbour waxed jacket to carry you through the weekend in style and comfort. For a bolder look that will prevent the rain from ruining your outfit, opt for a bright poncho that will easily pack away into your bag when the weather picks up!
