Festival fashion has come a long way since Kate Moss donned denim hot pants and Hunter wellies at Glastonbury 2007. Now it’s all about standing out from the crowd of ubiquitous festival goers wearing floral headbands and fedora hats; whether you’re a Modern Groupie in denim and leather or a New Bohemian in Seventies prints.
The New Bohemians
In the mid-2000s, when Sienna Miller popularised the boho look, it comprised of low-slung maxi skirts, pirate boots and Moroccan belts. Not so in 2014. Festival goers at Coachella in Palm Springs debuted a new, modern boho look, comprising flared trousers and tunics in psychedelic prints, crochet dresses and gypsy tops.

If you’re with the band in 2014, there’s a strict uniform to adhere to. You’ll be wearing skinny jeans or cut-off 501s with a vintage t-shirt, a leather biker jacket, walking boots or wellies, and those ubiquitous shades. This look radiates comfort, cool and musical know-how.
