Festival-ready pieces to get you excited for summer!

We've had our first taste of summer this week with some unexpectedly good weather, and we're already dreaming of festival season.

The high street is currently full of festival pieces – from printed playsuits to hold-all backpacks. We've picked out some of our favourites for the months ahead…

1. Cover up
This cape is perfect for throwing on over a bralet, bandeau or crop top, and it'll see you through your summer holiday too – simple beach wear at its best!

Beige Animal Print Fringed Cape, €45, River Island

2. Strawberries and cream
We love the summer colour palette on this pompom top – team with some denim high waisters and you're done!

Lipsy Cream PomPom Top, €27, House of Fraser

3. All in one
A playsuit is the ultimate festival piece – throw it on with a pair of wellies or Converse, pop your raincoat over and you're done. Just be prepared to have to strip completely when you need to go to the loo… A small detail.

Black Embroidered Strappy Playsuit, €29.99, New Look

4. Easy breezy
This trapeze dress is effortlessly stylish and we love the print too.

Striped Floral Trapeze Dress, €14, Forever 21

5. Hippy chic
We need this tie-die kaftan in our lives. NEED.

Label Lab TIe Die Embroidered Kaftan, €77, House of Fraser

6. Bag it up
A backpack or a bumbag is essential for storing everything without having to worry about carrying it while you're dancing. This printed one will go with everything.
