December’s finally here, which means that festival season is officially upon us! Between cult indie bands and electronic superstar DJs, we’re spoilt for choice this year. Team Jossbox is gearing up for a month of al fresco dancing, flower wreaths aplenty and loads of bonding to music. Step 1? Picking out our outfits!
The key to music festival dressing is to marry both style and comfort, and the easiest way to do this is to pick a base that’s comfortable, versatile and can be dressed up or down, and then build upon this.
Jeans tick all these boxes, so we’re building our festival wardrobe around them. Scroll through to see what we picked out!
For an easy, but cool-as-hell festival look, pull that denim shirt out – wear it over basic black skinnies and a grey vest/tank, sturdy shoes that warrant comfort as you groove the evening away, and pepper with a bunch of accessories – don’t forget the flower wreath!

This #ootd only goes to show that there’s no such thing as too much denim – the classic blue denim jacket is star of the show layered over a simple white tee, while dark jeans and denim textured loafers balance the look out. A dot of colour courtesy the red bandanna and a snapback add the element of fun.

Is funky more your thing? Then an oversized, colourful printed tee worn with super comfy skinny jeans should get you festival-ready. Layer on the statement necklaces, slip into a cool pair of combat boots and you’re good to go.

If comfort’s priority, a tee and cardigan combo is just the thing over jeans. Throw on a cap and finish with a pair of white sneakers and you’ve got casual dressy nailed.
