Face it, British festivals, are hard to dress for. What the weather has in store is anyones guess. Heat, hailstones or torrential rain, no one ever knows. In this post, I'll be dressing for all occasions, hopefully giving you a little inspiration for the up and coming festival season. I've chosen my outfits from three high street stores, Topman, H&M and Zara. I searched through their entire websites and picked my favourite pieces on a budget. I've linked all the details below if anything catches your eye.

Outfit one, The classic denim jacket. I spotted this immediately when scrolling through Topman's website, as you may have figured out by now I own a fair few denim jackets, but this one still jumped out at me. The colour of this jacket is the perfect denim blue, not my normal style, however, I'm a massive fan! The jacket is soft and very comfortable to wear, the blue denim is slightly washed out in places giving the jacket it's character. In my opinion, this jacket looks much more expensive than the £40 I paid.

Worn fastened to the top and with a contrasting bandanna the classic blue denim oozes style and is the perfect piece for your everyday festival look. Buttoned pockets for your wallet or mobile phone, this piece is functional as well as stylish.

I also bought a pair of Topman sunglasses as no one wants to take an expensive pair to a weekend in a muddy field! A simple and inexpensive pair are perfect as you can drop, sit on or even loose without constantly worrying. A pair of shades complete the festival look and were an absolute bargain at only £12!

My second look is quite similar to what you normally see me in. A polka dot shirt and a leather jacket. What I'm trying to create here are cool outfit's made up of cheaper alternatives, that way you won't care so much if you were to get a little mud on them. This look is made up of pieces I found at H&M, surprisingly for less than £70. A classic black and white polka dot shirt will always look at home at a gig or music festival, paired with a 'leather' "cough", you couldn't get any more rock & roll. This outfit is the warmer of the three, so if the weather doesn't play ball, you have a suitable alternative.

The 'leather' jacket I found in H&M was actually quite surprising, not only is the styling top draw, I think it looks pretty cool too. Yes, this jacket isn't real leather but at a festival who would give this a second glance? With its press stud lapels and diagonal zips this biker actually has a lot going for it.

My third and final festival look is when 'fingers crossed' the sun makes an appearance. I decided to hit Zara for this look as their summer range is always a good one, especially their range of printed shirts. I decided on this palm tree inspired shirt, not full on palm tree's as that would look a little too summer holiday but this monochrome number. The material of the shirt is viscose so it's very light and breathable if things turn a little tropical. Sleeves worn down or rolled up this shirt will always look killer at a festival.

If the sun does make an appearance you'll need a suitable pair of sunglasses to match the outfit. I've chosen these thick black resin framed shades also from Zara. A few pounds more than the Topman glasses, but all round a lot better. The sunglasses I chose to complete this look are a dupe on the iconic Wayfarer. This style of sunglasses is synonymous with fame and music artists, the perfect shades for any festival. I think these black glasses compliment the shirt very well and make for another rocking festival outfit.
