Let’s Go, Glasto! Sloane Ranger’s Guide to Glastonbury Festival

Sloane Ranger goes to Glastonbury

It’s only three weeks till Glastonbury and Sloanies all over are planning their pilgrimage to this world-famous music festival in Somerset. Whether you’re Glamping it up in a furnished yurt with the elite or ‘finding yourself’ with the real deal hippies in the Green Fields, Glastonbury Festival is a great place to get experimental with your style and try out some looks you may not be bold enough to rock on a day-to-day basis. So check out our hair style tips before you go, bring your dancing shoes and put all these essentials on your festival packing list. Rock on! 

Comedy Sunnies

These were big news at Coachella this year with every socialite, Sloanie and celebrity bride-to-be snapped rocking out with a pair of toucans, pineapples or shooting stars perched on their faces.  Channel your inner Gaga and get expressive: are you a love-heart kinda gal or feeling more starry-eyed? Don’t forget to take a few selfies now…

Tropical Prints

From sunbursts to palm trees, Aztec shapes to floral brights, tropical prints look hot hot hot on sunny summer weekends and will disguise a multitude of grass stains and general festival filth too! Opt for an on-trend fringed kimono or a pair of oh-so-comfy pajama pants in your favourite sultry summer print. And the brighter the better!

Hunter Wellies

Where wellington boots are concerned, it’s all about pristine Hunters for a summer spent in meadows, and cosy neoprene Le Chameaus for those frosty English winters stomping around in woodland. Hunters are now synonymous with summer festivals and will almost always come in useful at Glastonbury, where rain is almost as likely to show up as the Delevingne sisters.

Floral Hairband

We love this mythology-meets-medieval fairy look for summer festival style and the floral hairband looks great with a low-maintenance, festival-friendly milkmaid braid. We’d be better off telling you who didn’t wear a floral headband at Coachella this year, so we expect the blooms to be out in full force again at Glasto! The ultimate finishing touch to your festival get-up, you’ll never want to take your flowery headband off when you come back to reality come Monday morning.


Forget lugging an unsightly backpack around with the masses – travel in style with a roomy weekender bag big enough for your capsule wardrobe, accessories and toiletries. Our new Sloanie Stripe Weekender is made from hardy cotton canvas and comes fully lined with metal bottom feet. Those bold brights and block stripes are totally on point for summer 2014, and this makes a great beach bag and carry-on for your summer vacation.

Have fun, Sloanies. And don’t forget to share your best festival looks on Instagram using the hashtag #sloaneranger. We’ll regram our faves!
