What to wear for your first festival after lockdown: Your festival fashion guide for summer 2021

Festivals are officially back on - now it's time to decide what to wear...

It might sound too good to be true but festivals are officially back on this summer. While some have been postponed for another year, you can dust off your dancing boots because the likes of Bestival, Field Day, All Points East and Reading & Leeds are all going ahead.

You probably know the drill when it comes to festival fashion - a waterproof and sensible shoes always make the dress code, but otherwise, there's no better place to wear that outfit you were dreaming of during lockdown.
