Ever since Kate turned Glastonbury into her personal fashion playground, all those years ago, the festival has turned into a veritable runway of fashion and style. Now, people around the world tune in annually to see celebrities and civilians parade their festival fashion.

Thanks to Kate Moss, wellington boots (aka wellies, gumboots, etc) are a must-have for Glastonbury. Here are some more “must haves” for the festival fashionista.

With their musical heritage, it’s hardly a surprise to see Pixie & Peaches Geldof at Glasto. Dressed in their usual mix of high street attire with a rocker-chic twist, the girls showed us how to be edgy while still looking cool. Pixie combined her black gumboots with a leopard print tunic and a bright headscarf. Peaches had a similar style, with a cherry red hat combined with a lace crop top. Both girls carried the all important leather jacket, perfect for the inevitable rain that is traditional at Glastonbury.

Again, three girls with a rock & roll legacy. The Richards sisters went for practical and comfortable fashion – pairing cut-off denim shorts with gumboots and messy blonde hair. Theodora topped off her look with a canvas jacket in khaki, giving her style a chic twist of toughness. Alexandra added a little grunge to the mix with a plaid lumberjack shirt. Daisy bypassed the simple look and went straight for black fringe, with a mini skirt and a cropped mesh top both adorned with black tassels. All three girls added vintage-style satchels to the look, perfect for carrying around sunglasses and lipstick.

When it comes to day-to-day style, most models prefer a simpler look than the designer clothes and maximum make-up they are used to wearing. Lily and Wanessa both went for that perfectly uncomplicated look. Lily started her outfit with a pair of denim cut-offs and a slouchy black tee. By adding a fringed hobo bag and a floral umbrella, she gave her outfit a little panache while not going over the top. Wanessa went for a similar style – a simple band tee with a fedora and a bright scarf left her comfortable but colorful.
