With just a few festivals left to go – Longitude, Castlepalooza, Electric Picnic – the opportunity to don something you’d rarely wear of an average Tuesday is dwindling. After Body ?& Soul, Forbidden Fruit and more, so too is the money in our wallets. Below we round up some totally affordable festival fashion buys, sure to keep you feeling fresh on the outside when, 48 hours in, you’ll no doubt feel like crawling into a pit full of pillows and puppies on the inside. Fear not, appearances are everything…

What’s really really important to remember when it comes to Irish festivals, however, is that even though it may be sunny during the day, the nights get incredibly cold. While you might not consider your winter coat a worthy feature of your festival ensemble, you will need something that keeps you toasty, ensuring you can enjoy those midnight forest raves without shivering, miserable, in your Hunter wellies. Here’s how we suggest you keep warm…

Your straw hat will do little for your noggin when the sun goes down. Even though it’s supposed to be summer, pack a beanie. A warm head is a happy head.

A parka is your best bet for keeping warm and nailing that festival look in one. Though the shops are full of lighter options with little or no padding, we found this gem, on sale, in Topshop. Bit of fur on the hood; lovely.
