There's only one rule when it comes to festival outfits and that is: anything goes. Whether you're a hippy chick at heart, a Y2K fan, or an all-out rocker, a festival is the best place to throw all the style rules out of the window and really express yourself.

Coachella festival has already kicked off festival fever, providing us with an abundance of Cali-cool inspiration. From crochet dresses to fringed jackets, cut-off shorts to sequins, all of which can be translated to work at UK festivals; even if we aren't lucky enough to get the warm temperatures of Palm Springs.

Packing for a trip away can be tricky at the best of times and festival packing is no exception, especially when you throw in our delightfully unreliable British weather. Come rain, wind, or shine, you need to have sartorially suitable options for any meteorological challenges that you may face. And although we're all currently wondering if summer is ever going to arrive, it's essential that you're prepared; so be sure to pack a rain cover-up and wellies as well as a sunhat, sunglasses, and, of course, your best sunscreen.

The accessories you choose are key to not only looking good, but also making your life easier when you're there – ever tried using a portaloo whilst holding a handbag? Look for hands-free styles such as crossbody or bum bags for the best option. Your footwear choice is also crucial considering how far you'll potentially walk over the space of a weekend, your shoe choice needs to be both stylish and comfortable. Chunky sandals or trainers are great for hot weather, whilst a chunky boot or welly will see you through the crowds and mud.
