If you’re spoilt for choice about what to wear to this year’s top festivals, take a look through our top picks for men’s festival clothing for 2018:


Your top is a big part of your festival look. There are big decisions to be made! Do you go for the ultimate casual look with a t-shirt, something a little smarter with a polo shirt or pull out the stops with a short sleeve shirt? The options are endless but here our top picks when it comes to festival appropriate tops:

Penguin T-Shirts

Affordable, high quality, well fitting and best of all, available in all the colours you could want. Whether your festival style is understated and effortlessly cool or you go all out with the colourful clothing, our range of Penguin t-shirts will have the right one for you.

£19.00 each is a fair price for a quality t-shirt and due to the minimalistic design, you can guarantee you’ll get plenty of wear out of these t-shirts beyond festival season.

Lambretta Polo Shirts

The perfect smart casual top for festivals, polo shirts are comfortable and seriously stylish and we think a top choice for 2018 festivals is our range of Lambretta polo shirts.

A selection of 8 polo shirts in a variety of colours and designs each one retailing for prices as low as £14.00. These polo shirts are cool, affordable and come in a great range of colours.

Pre-End Short Sleeve Casual Shirts

If you’re the gent who likes to keep things pretty smart for all occasions, then a short sleeve casual shirt is an essential in your festival wardrobe.

The Pre-End short sleeve shirts are made with effortlessly cool occasions in mind. Available in a range of colours to suit your own personal style, these shirts look perfect paired with shorts, jeans or even trousers, so you can guarantee you’ll get plenty of wear out of one of these shirts both at the festival and afterwards.


Now we’ve sorted the top half of your festival wardrobe, let’s turn our attention towards the bottom half.

We all keep our fingers crossed for good weather during festival season but we know that isn’t a guarantee. Despite this most men will still opt for shorts, even if the rain decides to fall for the duration of the event.

Whether you’re happy to brave the British weather in your summer attire or you want some wet weather trousers that are still stylish for festivals, here are some items for you:

ONESIX5IVE Chino Shorts

ONESIX5IVE is known for being an affordable, go-to brand for dapper modern gents and their range of chino shorts are the ultimate addition to your festival packing list.

Retailing for prices as low as £16 a pair, the ONESIX5IVE chino shorts are a comfortable and flattering fit for all sizes. These shorts are available in a range of colours including stone, navy, burgundy and even a bold blue colour.

An affordable option for festivals and a stylish choice for wearing afterwards, you need to grab yourself a few pairs of these shorts for the summer season.

Levi’s Jeans

It’s a common misconception that you have to avoid taking your favourite clothes to festivals with you for fear of them getting ruined but clothes can be cleaned and stains can be removed, a little mud isn’t going to be the end of your best jeans, so we think it’s worth investing in great denim to keep your look on trend at your favourite festivals.

Levi’s jeans are known for being the best of the best when it comes to denim and we agree, Levi’s know what they’re doing when it comes to jeans and it makes for some seriously stylish attire.

Whether you want black, dark blue or light blue, whether your style is super skinny, a little looser or a standard straight leg, we’ve got the perfect Levi’s jeans to match your fashion sense and complete your festival look.


To be fully prepared for all the elements, you need to have your outerwear for the weekend sorted and that involves having a lightweight waterproof jacket in tow.

Festivals are notorious for that ‘warm but wet’ weather that leaves you needing to wear a jacket to stay dry but wanting to avoid it because it’s simply too warm. This is why a thin but quality waterproof jacket is a festival wardrobe essential.

Regatta are the experts when it comes to protective outerwear and their Stormbreak Hydrafort shell jackets are the ultimate choice. Available in a range of colours including navy, black and green meaning you can look stylish while staying warm and dry.


Alongside your wellies, you need to pack a pair of casual shoes such as trainers because although it may seem rare we do sometimes get some sun during festival season and you don’t want to be stuck in your wellies when it’s warm.

One of our top bits of festival style advice would be to pack a pair of dark coloured trainers that match all of your outfits for the duration of the festival. By doing that, if you’re blessed with good weather, you’ve got a comfy and fashionable pair of footwear to last you all weekend without weighing your bags down with shoes.

Black, dark grey or navy would be our top colours to go for as they’re less likely to show up any mud and won’t be so badly stained if they do get a little dirty.

There you have it, our ultimate guide to nailing men’s festival fashion for this year’s biggest and best festivals around the country!
