In the blink of an eye, Glastonbury is over for another year. Arguably one of Europe’s – if not the world’s – greatest music festivals, Glastonbury is one of the UK’s biggest events of the summer. This weekend saw an eclectic range of music and performers take to the stage, with Florence and the Machine taking full advantage of her last-minute headline slot, Kanye West performing to mixed reviews (but taking the top spot when it came to most talked-about artist) and The Who showing that they can still put on as good a show as the rest of them.
Aside from the music, Glastonbury is all about the style. As mixed as the music on offer, festival goers wear everything from Woodstock-inspired hippy chic, to fancy dress, 90s-raver and everything in between. As every year, wellies (of the black Hunter variety) were the footwear of choice, and sunglasses came oversized, mirrored and round. The stand-out (and perhaps slightly surprising) accessory was the bum bag; the stylish set wore them slung across their body or sitting low on the hip, proving that this retro style is officially back. Glastonbury showed us that the classic rock-chick style of an all-black outfit comprised of black skinnies and a band tee will always look good, and the way to wear your bra is to have it peeking through a bright, cropped jacket or an unbuttoned jumpsuit à la Daisy Lowe.
