Festival dressing done right
Don’t panic: festival style doesn’t have to mean shredded denim or musty vintage. Instead, opt for nineties shapes and streetwear styling. Think less bohemian, more Burning Man.

Nylon and Gore-tex: durable, weatherproof and having a major moment in menswear. Plus, who doesn’t love clothes that you can spill in?
Think of the sleeveless top as the cool guy’s alternative to a vest. The same opportunity to show off your arms, but without the gym-bro connotations.
Don’t be tempted by ‘quirky’ headgear. Who would you rather be: the guy in the artisanal wicker boater or the guy in the baseball cap? We thought so.
A punchy tee is a no-brainer. This summer, there are extra marks if it’s emblazoned with a graphic print.
A hit of tie-dye will bring just the right amount of offbeat. Take your cues from Gosha Rubchinskiy and opt for pieces that channel the nineties rave scene.
