Festival Wardrobe // Sharpen it up

Glastonbury has kicked off the festival season good and proper, and now that you’ve got your festival calendar planned, the big question is: what to wear? The 'denim shorts and glowsticks' look may be a goodie but it’s also an oldie. At Religion HQ we’re smartening up our festival look รก la Shenae Grimes and Josh Beech who came by to pick up some pieces for the season. Shenae went for the sheer Luck Dress – a perfect combination of smart and easy to wear, while Josh chose the Gunner denim gilet – smart denim with a ripped edge.

Religion Menswear Designer Charlotte loves a scarf for festivals “It keeps you warm on the cold days and acts as sun protection on the hot days. Plus it adds a touch of style to my standard vest top and jeans look”. Look out for the new Religion scarves in Prey and Magic print – available in London stores.

Mette, Brand Director smartens up the festival look with a sharp jacket like the Tail Coat (coming out later this year) but keeps it fun with the Dire Tee. She wouldn’t go to a festival without a pair of tights in her bag to prepare for the chilly nights at Glasto or Hop Farm.

Knitwear is always a must at a festival and the men’s Multi Stripe sweat is perfect to throw over an ombre tee – we’d go for the Delancey tee.

Lilly, Brand PA wears short shorts to her festival fave, Big Day Out in New Zealand and Ellie, Sales Exec likes her denim tiny when she goes to Stop Making Sense in Croatia – paired with a chunky vintage knit. When it comes to short shorts we’d go for the Voyager shorts for a twist on the usual ripped denim.
