What to wear to Glastonbury 2016? Festival ideas Part 1

Festival season is here, just two weeks left until the main UK festival "Glastonbury" opens its doors! But the eternal question "what to wear" doesn't leave us alone.

Gypset idea is that the festival gear should be trendy, comfy and fun! You should be able to make a statement and feel chilled at the same time.

Layers are quite important in order not to get caught by dramatic changes in our unpredictable British weather!

Glastonbury festival official "what to bring" list states we SHOULD bring:

(we highlighted the most important ones in bold)

  • Festival ticket
  • A reusable water bottle, to fill up from the free taps on site
  • Tent
  • Sleeping bag
  • Roll mat
  • Wellies or sturdy boots
  • Toilet roll
  • A warm jumper (it can get cold at night)
  • Sun tan lotion
  • Waterproof
  • Toiletries
  • Enough change of clothes in case you get wet
  • Medical info (if you have any allergies or medical conditions)
  • Medication if required 
  • Torch
  • ID
  • Money/cards
  • Hat
  • Bags for dirty clothes and rubbish
  • Contraceptives
  • Mark valuables with house name and postcode so it can be posted back to you

Here are some Glastonbury outfit ideas:

Glastonbury Festival style 2015

This year we are lucky with Glastonbury festival weather, but English countryside can be unpredictable, therefore wellies will be handy in any case. We decided to bring the colour into this flowery look, mixing greens, reds and blues with neutral beige.
Enjoy the mud!

How to dress for festivals - Gypset ideas

How many times did we ask ourselves this question? I want to look cool and chic at the Festival, but not overdo it, I want to look like X, but I want to be myself .. Our Gypset team prepared a short tutorial of immaculate festival style for you!

So what are the essentials for the Festival? And what you should avoid? Here is the guide how to catch an eye of fashion bloggers and photographers at festivals.

1. Festival personality: Your style should be reflection of your own your personality. You can't fool people around. If you are a Glamour Queen, you should stay a Glamour Queen, but... with a festival touch.

What we are trying to say here is that festival style don't have boundaries, you can be a Festival punk, a Festival Raver,

or a Festival Snob..

2. Festival DON'Ts:What you can't be at a Festival is Herve Leger/Louboutin heels girl (nothing against Max Azria or Christian Louboutin at appropriate events)
- high heels
- bodycon revealing dresses
- everything in excess

3. Casual look: Try to look relaxed, like you didn't spend last 2 months preparing your outfits, it's not Halloween or Burning Man, where costumes are the essence (obviously you did spend at least couple of weeks on your outfits, but keep it for yourself). Loose fit and layers help a lot to create a casual look.

4. Accessorise! You should pay extra attention to accessorising, as it is a key factor in your look.

Everything from bandanas to anklets will work.
Again, you should be careful with not overdoing as you have a chance to look like a tribal princess.
Festival NO!

Hats: Fedoras are the easiest option

Shades: Hippie or decorative sunglasses

Headbands: get inspired by some ethnic styles

Bags: fringed suede bags, tribal bags

Feather and fringes bag by Carole Hook
Fringes: Boho bags, shawls, ponchos, kimonos

Shoes: tassel boots or sandals, sneakers, espadrilles and wellies (depending on the weather)

5. Festival Clothing: You have to be able to mix things and styles

6. Folk - tribal - ethnic - gypsy - hippie - peasant. You should consider any of the above mentioned styles. It can be a piece of clothing:

Festival tribal shorts, Kuchi tribal belt, kuchi top

or an accessorise

The same rule as with accessorises - don't go for a total ethnic or total tribal look. Save it for Burning Man
Festival NO!

7. Layers. I personally love shawls and believe it is the best accessorise, which can work in any situation. Put as a belt, or bandana or a dress or just as a shawl.
Read out tutorial how to wear a shawl at the Festival here:

Other great idea is a gilet, leather or suede one with a fringe or folk vest.

8. A touch of vintage. Vintage and handmade items give you a great opportunity to be unique. It's not like you bought those harem pants for $14.99 at Asos (again, nothing against it) and surprised that every single person at Glastonbury wears them. If you invest some time in your look, you can find absolutely stunning pieces for the price of Asos. Try eBay and Etsy
