Are you looking for some inspiration for your festival get-up? Well, festival veteran Holly Rankin has been to and played at her fair share over the years. If you’re unfamiliar with Holly you will definitely be more familiar with her alter ego, Jack River. As Holly gears up for another festival season, we thought that we would pick her brains as to what her fave styles are and how we can hit the ground running like a pro!

My first question with festival fash is, ‘can I get deep into a mosh pit with this on?'. The buzz of wearing something super fancy to a festival wears off quickly when you realise that you can’t throw yourself deep into the fun; practicality is top of my list.
All Black Everything
On the days when I want to fly under the radar and really take in the music, I love to wear all black. My go-to outfit for these days is a pair of black skinny jeans, a faded grey shirt, black jumper, black jacket, black boots and some sparkle somewhere (eyes/earrings). This outfit is for the musicians and industry folk who don’t get fussed with fashion; it’s the uniform of a world that is constantly travelling.
A Flowery Dress
If it’s going to be warm during the day and cold at night, it’s nice to feel 17 and in the middle of summer. A short flowery dress that spins on the dance floor will never ever get old! Pair your dress with some tights and boots to feel warm and cosy when it gets dark.
Jumpsuits or Overalls
Again, usually my ideal outfit ticks the 'can this move' and the 'can I dance in this' boxes. Jumpsuits and overalls make you feel like you’re 5 years old again and can go jump in bushes or fall over in the mud while still feeling invincible. This outfit never fails and in fact, I am going to go and source a denim jumpsuit this second!
