When it comes to festival season, you have to be prepared. 

Sure, it will be one of the most epic times of your life, but just because you're in it for the fun doesn't mean you can throw caution to the wind. Translation: Do not toss a bunch of clothes in your bag as you're running out the door and think you're good to go. First of all, it doesn't matter which festival you're attending, you need to think long and hard to curate your outfits. And don't even get us started on the beauty must-haves. Luckily PrettyLittleThing has us covered.

Let's just say, the bolder the better. Here's what we're packing.

Tie Front Top

A fun flirty tie-front top never hurt anyone, now did it? This one comes in black, white and baby pink, so it goes with anything (aka it's vacay ready). Bonus points if you're sporting a tan while wearing it.

BUY IT: JERSEY SHORT SLEEVE TIE-FRONT T-SHIRT, £10

Denim Shorts

Not only are denim cutoffs a festival staple, they're straight-up an everyday wardrobe must-have. For this occasion specifically, you could wear them all weekend long and we honestly wouldn't be mad.

BUY IT: MID WASH DISCO-FIT SHORTS, £12

Sequined Mini Dress

Sequins are a festival staple, so as far as we're concerned, there's no such thing as too much. Take it up a notch in the evening with this sexy number. Warning: Be ready to turn heads.

BUY IT: SILVER HOLOGRAPHIC SEQUIN BODYCON DRESS, £35

Gold Sequined Hot Pants

There's a time and a place for gold sequins and did we mention this is it? Pair this spicy pair with literally anything on top and mosh pit, here you come. You could wear them all weekend long and we honestly wouldn't be mad.

BUY IT: GOLD SEQUIN SHORTS, £15

Shaggy Rainbow Jacket

Whether you like it or not, there will be a point in the weekend where you need to cover up (hello nightfall). Our advice: Be festive about it with a colorful shaggy jacket.

It's no surprise that jewels should be a main theme in your festival weekend wardrobe. Take it up a notch with festive face jewels that'll play up your best features.

Why is it that clothes just look better when you're tan? Actually, scratch that, we're not going to question it.

Sunglasses are one of the most practical items you'll be packing, but that doesn't mean they can't be rad. This super-cool retro pick? Yeah, we'll take it.
