Feelin' splendid...

Your Splendour Survival Guide

Heading to Splendour in the Grass this weekend?  Embody festival queens like Alexa Chung and Suki Waterhouse with the below items, and get ready to boogie down to your fave bands…

POLKA DOT RAINCOAT / GORMAN

If past years are anything to go by, it will almost inevitably rain at some point during the weekend.  Who cares though?!  Roll this Gorman baby up and pack it inside your bag, and get ready to do the rain dance…

SPRING COURT LOW CUT SNEAKERS / LEE MATHEWS

Provided you don’t turn to your ever faithful gum boots, these Spring Court sneakers offer a much more comfortable and practical alternative for when you need to sprint from one stage to the next to catch the end of Royal Blood’s set. Now, who’s ready for a game of ‘Stuck In The Mud’?

IRO FRINGED LEATHER JACKET / CALEXICO

How could you ever go past the quintessential fringed leather jacket?  If you’ve been searching for that one item to perfect your festival outfit, look no further.

KEVIN MURPHY COLOUR BUG / SUBLIME

Not only do these wonderful little colour bugs inject colour into your hair with no commitment (ummm, yes please!), but the chalky texture also serves as a colourful dry shampoo.  Talk about killing two birds with one stone!

MYKITA X MARGIELA SUNGLASSES / ONEPOINTSEVENFOUR

The reflective sunnies have been around for a while now, and it seems they’re not going anywhere quickly.  From campers to VIPs to band members, everyone needs a pair of these to hide the eye bags that have resulted from days on end of partying.

ISABEL MARANT BEANIE / CALEXICO

Even without the arctic breeze that we’re currently experiencing, Splendour is notorious for being freezing.  Remember when your Mum used to tell you that you retain your body heat by wearing a hat and socks?  She wasn’t lying.  This beanie will keep you snug while still looking like the coolest cat around.

TINTED SPF 25 LIP BALM / MECCA COSMETICA

Don’t fall into the trap of forgetting your lip balm, and not any old chapstick will do.  You need full SPF and moisturising protection for three days battling the elements, and this Mecca Cosmetica lip balm will not disappoint…
