We asked Katherine Ormerod, a contributing Fashion Editor at Large, to share her insight into what to wear this festival season.

Once upon a time, festival style meant little more than a cosy parka and your favourite band t-shirt, accessorised with a warm can of beer. Fast forward to 2015 and festival fashion has become one of the most important updates for any summer wardrobe. With our own icons - quintessential rock chic via Stevie Nicks to modern day festival expert Kate Moss - and dedicated seasonal trends, festival packing has become much more of a challenge.


Hunter has been the festival footwear specialist for decades, and this season there are plenty of options come rain or shine. Take the new modern classic, Hunter Slides - spotted on the toes of bloggers Jessie Bush and Carrie Harwood and already the festival It-shoe of the year. As Jessie says, 'festival fashion should be an extension of what you normally wear, albeit a little more practical.' Nailing both form and function, the Hunter Slide works with maxi to mini hemlines and is the perfect foil for cut offs on sunny days.


Of course, you can't pack for a British festival without forgetting your wellies. From Hunter's signature Tall Boot to the ankle length Original Chelsea Boots, there's a style and colourway to suit any look. Take blogger Sarah Mikaela who hit London's Field Day festival in classic black Chelsea Boots paired with shorts and a well-cut parka - ideal for navigating those muddy fields in style.


So whether it's storms or sunshine, night or day, Hunter will make your festival packing a walk in the park.
