The delicate and the dirty: Glastonbury

Festival style and the colour white have been best friends for a while now. Muddy patches on clothes have never been more fashionable. And Glastonbury showgoers knew exactly how to wear it.

The roughed edges, faded creaminess and abstract lacework could easily classify this dress for a vintage or second-hand purchase, but the satirical teaming of lace and mud makes it a clear winner.

The sneaky presence of a body hugging nude slip makes the outfit a lot more wearable. Even outside the muddy premises, this effortless outfit will make heads turn. But for now, the beige felt hat, tan sling bag and filthy wellies are a stern reminder of the plastic-beer-cup fest.
