This year (2022) will be my third time at Glastonbury Festival, and I’m so excited to be back on Worthy Farm. If my previous experience is anything to go by, I know it’ll be epic. Whether it’s your first time at a festival this year or you’re a seasoned pro, read on for some of my tried and tested festival fashion hacks…

Hack #1: Pack your outfits in clear bags
I like to organise my outfits into clear plastic bags for each day. Each one will have everything from underwear to accessories and this will minimise rummaging in your backpack.
Hack #2: Pack as many two-in-one items as possible
Space is tight when packing for festivals as you need to be able to carry all of your belongings. Try finding items that have dual purposes – an oversized t-shirt that can be worn as a dress and then repurposed as a nightie for other nights, for example.
Hack #3: Layers are key
Even in the height of summer, camping can be a chilly affair in the evening so you may need extra layers to keep warm. Pack at least one hoody or jumper, you won’t regret it!
Hack #4: Think about the fabric
You might have fallen in love with a cool leather jacket or love the look of some fashion-forward cord flares, but in adverse weather conditions are these going to be wise choices? Leather can be hot and heavy, and thick fabrics like denim and cord don’t dry easily after downpours.
Hack #5: Go for non-crease materials
On the topic of fabrics, it’s also worth seeking out items of clothing that will look okay without being ironed as there will be no sight of an ironing board in a field. Crepe dresses are perfect as they can be tied in a knot and look beautiful even if wrinkled when worn.
Hack #6: Repurpose old outfits
Before heading to the festival section of your fave online fashion outlet, raid your wardrobe to see what you already have. You could make a fab new look from old holiday clothes that haven’t seen the beach in years but to your fellow festival-goers, they will be brand new.
