The greatest festival of them all returns this weekend, as Glastonbury makes a welcome comeback after its year off. Kylie is just one of the people on the bill, and it looks like it is going to be a scorcher. But, as important as the music is, the fashion and style sported is as eagerly anticipated.
Glastonbury style is a style all of its own. Unlike Coachella, we rarely get the weather, in fact, at times, it can be a total washout, so Glasto style is often built around a pair of Hunter Wellies. Army fatigues and khaki are also popular, and a DIY pair of denim hot pants seem to be almost obligatory.
Glasto style is all about the boho. Flowers for the flowing hair, beads and chains, and t-shirt that have been customised are also very popular. Due to the mood, white is a colour to be avoided, and most Glastonbury looks have a level of dishevelment about them that just make them more fascinating.
Below I have put together some of my favourite Glastonbury style icons, including Kate Moss, who seemed to single handedly invent Glasto style in the 1990s, Sienna Miller, the original queen of boho chic, and Jo Whiley, who basically always looks cool and immaculate, and is the real Queen of Glastonbury. Also featured are Laura Whitmore, Alexa Chung and Dua Lipa’s look from yesterday – she’s definitely one to watch at this year’s festival.
Who is your Queen of Glastonbury? Will you be watching for Kylie, or someone else?
So there you go. I can’t wait to see the styles this weekend brings. I’m off to a festival myself this weekend, a Sausage and Cider festival in Derbyshire, so if you follow me on Insta, have a look where I got my inspiration from.
