THE FOUR RULES
1. Denim shorts
2. Cute little top
3. Work boots
4. Slouchy bag
Here are a few of our favourite takes on the denim shorts look...

lime fish earrings too (image from harpersbazaar.com)
|Coachella not scout camp- boyish badges and camouflage, and hey is that Josephine de la Baume? (image from harpersbazaar.com)|
|Ok, they're coloured denim but these laced up shorts are along the same lines. Really love the scarf flapping in the wind and wintry hat (from www.mrnewton.net)|
|Zanna Roberts Rossi lets her bleached and ripped denims take centre stage. This is a bit chavvy for us at FEAL. (image from harpersbazaar.com)|
|The Zombie that is Sky Ferreira does double denim, and looks more grungy than cutesy festival. (image from www.fashionologie.com)|
When the festival fashion formula is so easy - read: safe - it takes a lot of sass to veer off course. These girls did and we love them for it. Hanne and Karla (top and below) are my best dressed for the sole reason that they actually look like they're at a festival. They're a bit thrown together but there's not a a denim cut off in sight plus they actually look like they're having a brilliant time.
Best Dressed Who Are Clearly VIPs at an Exclusive Party Rather than Moshing in with Everyone Else...

|Alexa Chung in Phillip Lim- a sweet evening dress and Jesus sandals. Not an outfit for muddy days or tents. Long gone are the Barbour days for Alexa (image from Derek Blasberg at Harper's Bazaar)|

Best Dressed Normal People...
What festivals are all about...
Best dressed man: Kanye West in Celine SS11. We like the 80s open chest plus medallion styling.
