Packing for a festival can be a bit of a nightmare. Not anymore, thanks to a pair & a spare blogger Geneva's top festival wardrobe tips.

Packing for a festival can be a right pain, what with trying to predict whether it'll be raining or sunny, hot or cold.

Well worry your pretty little head no more, because Geneva Vanderzeli, blogger and DIYer extraordinaire at a pair & a spare, has revealed her ultimate festival wardrobe.

She shares her top outfits, in collaboration with adventure holidays provider Contiki, and personal shopping app Shopcade for the ultimate summer wardrobe.

Comfortable footwear

Geneva says: "Even the best festival can be ruined by uncomfortable or unsubstantial footwear and so the ultimate essential for any festival is shoes you can walk in for days.

My go-to shoes are generally Hunter wellies, even if it doesn't rain you'll be thankful you wore them when you're navigating the port-a-loos late at night."

Simple basics

"Easy-to-throw-on separates are key when it comes to dressing at festivals. My go-to outfit is a pair of boyfriend denim shorts and a striped nautical top or printed tee, layered with a knit and jacket for evening," Geneva explains.

Versatile outerwear

"Choosing the right outerwear is key for night time stage hopping - a waterproof parka is a great choice, or go for a leather or camo style that can be tied around your waist in the day time."

Fun headwear

Geneva recommends: "Keen to experiment with costume-y festival dressing? A fun hat, beanie or headband is a great way to go, and doesn't compromise your ability to get around and enjoy yourself."

The Perfect Bag

Geneva's festival bag of choice? "A leather backpack is the perfect choice for holding all your essentials in a chic but wearable way, or go for a small cross body bag so you can carry your essentials without being weighed down."
