Dr Martens Boots

Boots that are made for walking

Your footwear choice can make or break your idea of a good time. The trick is to find shoes to love and to live in; shoes that are comfortable no matter the terrain, that match everything you’ve thrown in the boot of your car and that wouldn’t even dream of cursing you with blisters. Dr Martens have been the answer for many since the 1960s.

Their Pascal Wanderlust are your new BFF, thanks to their air-cushioned honeycomb insulation technology. They’re lightweight, they look good and DAMN are they comfortable. Pair them with a frothy, feminine midi skirt for that ultimate 90s grunge vibe. Hey, if they were good enough for Courtney…

Layers. And plenty of them

Winter is never quite winter Down Under. It’s hot one minute, cold the next. In a single trip, you’re driving through coastal towns and mountain ranges.  So, whether you’re a windows-up or windows-down kind of gal, you’re going to have issues with temperature control. The trick to keeping your cool is to layer, layer and then layer again. Mix textures and prints, slogan T-shirts with vintage vibes and femme pieces. Be sure to include a few utility pieces, like the Missguided Hunter Camo Jacket. In a rigid cotton twill, this bad girl has twin utility pockets – perfect for stashing anything you need to carry.

Denim, denim and more denim

The more denim, the better. It’s hard-wearing, minimal-washing essential to live in. Mix your classic cuts up with a little double trouble. Play a sweetheart neckline and tie-detailing in the same hand as a high-rise tapered fit in a bleached blue. Too much of a good thing? Never.

The very best soundtrack

The more eclectic, the better. Prep your playlist ahead of time and be sure to include anything (and everything) by: Tay-Tay, De La Soul, Lauryn Hill, Solange, The Preatures, Nirvana, Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac and 2-Pac. Make sure it’s downloaded so you don’t chew through your data. Or, another festival favourite is when you do album by album of the headliners and the ones you’re sure to see on your list.
