What to wear to a festival if the weather's bad

Festival season is a great excuse to go all out with your outfit, but when the weather’s not great it can make it difficult to choose what to wear. Luckily for you, we’ve got some festival essentials for when the weather isn't great, so you can still go out there and live your best life.


Whether you go for some Hunters or Doc Martens, something to keep your feet dry is essential for when it’s chucking it down. That way you can carry on partying in the field that’s quickly become a mud bath.


Even though the weather might not be great, the last thing you want to be wearing is jeans that’ll get soaked through. An easy option is to go for shorts to save walking around in soaking wet trousers all day. If cycling shorts aren’t really your thing, once you’ve tried some on you’ll soon be converted when you realise how comfy they are. Team them with an oversized tee and some Doc Martens for a simple festival look.


Probably the most important thing you’ll need. Whether it’s a cheap plastic poncho from Amazon or a more expensive one from an outdoors shop like Ultimate Outdoors, Millets or Blacks, there’s no doubt you don’t want to forget it!
