This ceases to amaze me as a designer - Can you imagine Woodstock in the 70's and girls all concerned about what they will wear? They made fashion - they were independent thinkers. Ah.. times gone by.
Let's all text everyone to decide what to wear, ask on blogs, stand in the closet on the phone. So much for individuality; an ancient concept.
It wasn't so much plan you outfits, more what to take if your camping for a whole weekend. I know there will be many first-time festival goers struggling to decide what to take because here in England we're not blessed with the sun every summer
Hi there, what I would wear to a music festival would be denim cut offs paired with fishnet leggings just for the heck of it and probably a plaid shirt. It's a safe and generic look i know, but very comfy and depending on the weather, you can choose to wear a tank top underneath the shirt
practical and stylish? - dresses. warm weather - bare legs. cold weather - stockings. and its easy to change in a small tent.
but when the rain comes it is just to give up even trying to look good. the last festival i went to it was raining so much it went through my raincoat and i got completely wet and ended up walking around in a garbage bag..
At Reading last year I found the best thing to wear was dresses. I didn't actually need wellies at all last year but if you do use them I suggest you wear knee high socks, otherwise you may get a horrid rash (well my sensitive skin certainly does).
A nice pair of denim shorts under pretty floral dresses is a good idea as if you fall over at least you will keep your dignity.
Ohhh and don't forget the hat! A burnt scalp is not pretty (I've learnt that these past few days) and it will be very painful and sore. So yes a hat is essential!
Jeans aren't really a good idea, especially if it's likely to rain as they take ages to dry. Leggings are a better idea as they fold up small, easily dried if needs be and ideal to put on under a dress when it cools down at night. Take plenty of bin bags - they are very useful not only for putting rubbish in, but as rainwear (as posed to death said), sitting on and various other uses.

concerning rain again and not style, i don't know the name for it in english, the trousers made of the same fabric as raincoats, like the ones children wear. however, they are fantastic for the days when the mud is reaching up to the knee or above.
