If you hadn't already noticed, festival season has well and truly begun. We've already seen some great performances (and fashion statements) at Hackney Weekend, the Isle of Wight festival and T4 on the beach, and we've still got Latitude, Port Eliot, and Leeds/Reading to go!

Whether you're a seasoned pro or a first timer, there are always certain things you'll remember about a festival; the weather, the food, the state of the toilets, your favourite performance, and how half the things you packed didn't see the light of day. So why is it we ALWAYS forget when it comes round to going again?! Packing for a festival, especially one in the UK, can be as stressful as packing for a two week holiday in Spain. What will the weather do? What will the ground be like? Am I likely to bump into the lead singer of my favourite band and will I die of shame if I'm wearing this?

Lets face it, seeing the sun at a UK festival is on par with Snooki wearing flat shoes - doubtful. Unfortunately, shops tend to forget this fact, offering festival picks that are more suited to Florida than a field in the middle of Britain. Unless you're heading to Coachella or Benicassim, half of the 'festival ready' looks out there just aren't going to work when you're met with a 2 metre ditch and mud as high as your knees, but thankfully, New Look have collated their best Festi-style pieces for every eventuality!

If you want to be ready for anything AND look stylish on your festival adventure, then head to their website before it's too late...
