Company Magazine: July edition

Knowing it's the time of year that festivals are happening all over the country, it was obvious that Company would offer us a special edit dedicated to the fashion for the fields. With outfits for every festival including rock, pop and urban genres, Company gave us plenty options and inspiration for outfits this summer. The 20% of at Urban Outfitters was generally a gift from Company as the amount of people going to festivals this year is once again high. Seeing as Glastonbury is starting at the weekend why not quickly splash out of a quirky hat or pair of wellies from Urban outfitters with the 20% off? Ok, you may not look the part in them any other time of the year, but just for those 3 days you'll fit right in.

The main thing, and on occasions the only thing people worry about at festivals is the weather. Yes, seeing as we're British it's not hard to constantly suffer anxiety from the weather, even though your weather app will clearly state that it will be sunny all weekend through. We can't help it. As a nation we've seen and been to festivals that have practically flooded with water that on occasions it's risen to over the wellies (worst thing ever- welly boot full of freezing, dirty water). What do we do then? We simply trudge through the quicksand like bog and carry on enjoying ourselves no matter what. We've come here for one thing, to listen and see the music, nothing will stop us. Give us rain, sun, wind or even snow, us British will cope through it.

Seeing as the weather is pretty unpredictable, it's important to pack for both rain or shine. Both outfits can include the same clothing but just layered up in different ways to suite the weather. The signature look of shots and wellies is a must in the rain along with a light waterproof coat if your sensible enough. Even though you're wearing a waterproof in summer why be so dull about it? Topshop has a range of different floral patterned waterproofs perfect for the festivals. On the other hand, miracle hand, thank you God hand, there is the sun outfit. Simply wear a bralet or small top along with a light kimono over the top and a sigh of reef and you'll be ready for the sunshine. Wellies would still be acceptable to wear but think of wearing an old pair of converse so your feet can feel at home instead of living in a trench foot condition.

It's practically under 3 weeks till T in the park and I have nothing prepared for apart from the tent. One thing is for sure, seeing as it's in Scotland I'll definitely  be taking the wellies even if it's predicted heat wave conditions. It's Scotland at the end of the day,  I'm not taking a chance.
