THE FESTIVAL EDIT X THE DEBRIEF

May 27, 2015

Things are getting warmer, the sky is getting bluer and the sun is (sporadically) shining, which can only mean one thing; festival season is fast approaching.

Step away from the usual routine of panic buying baby wipes and collecting a stash of Supernoodles, and instead take a peek at this festival bundle as picked by the smart, savvy and switched-on girls from The Debrief. These ladies know their stuff so consider this list as your one-stop festival shop.

But wait! That’s not all; you can win the whole kit, plus an £150 shopping spree. To find out how, and to see the whole festival package, just click here.

H by Hudson Calypso Velcro Sandals

‘At a festival you don’t really want silver sandals because of the mud, obvs. But at least these guys are practical when it comes to wearing them all day. Perhaps I’ll just have to go to a festival on a beach instead!’

Urban Renewal Vintage Customised Boho Trim Tee

‘While white clothes terrify me, this top is perfect. It doesn’t show too much skin (I don’t have abs) and I can wear it with a high waisted cotton pencil skirt which is basically all I’ve been wearing since the weather got vaguely hot. Love the detailing too.’

Chunky Frame Sunglasses in Black Tortoiseshell

‘Festival season means one thing for me – a whopping hangover and suffering in the sun. These huge glasses will hide the pain.’

Urban Renewal Vintage Originals ‘90s Sleeveless Denim Jacket in Blue

‘A denim waistcoat to jazz up any outfit and it’s a great day time piece over a tee and also over a black dress of the night time. Also adds a few extra pockets to your outfit so you can stash change, gum and lip balm. ALSO you can do the Bruce Springsteen if you’re feeling brave.’

Boom Things Tropical Pineapple iPhone 6 Case

‘Taking your iPhone 6 to a festival isn’t the brightest of ideas but how else are you going to Insta? At least if you drop it in the mud this bright phone case will help you locate it quickly.’

Ecote Triangle Tapestry Clip & Zip Backpack in Black and Red

‘Most festivals include walking. A lot of walking. Which is fine, but it basically means you’re carrying the contents of your tent on your back for most of the because what if it rains, or what if it’s suddenly really sunny or what if some other festival-goer vomits on you? That’s why a backpack is your BFF when you’re festival-ing and this one is not only totally practical, it looks really cool too. Double win.’
