Mermaid chokers

If you're a fashion-forward girly girl whose looking for a boutique take on the festival look, this beautiful gold-plated choker necklace from Lonna Lilly is sure to please.

Wear it to glam up your evening festival attire after the sun goes down.

Stacked rings

Fossil Ring JF02645791

Ring: Ladies' Fossil rose gold-plated ring (RRP £38)

Stackable rings are pretty and fuss-free, making them the ideal accessory for a festival. This rose gold-plated ring from Fossil is sure to bring compliments, and its pre-stacked design means you don't need to worry about finding another ring to match. The triangular detailing will draw attention to beautiful fingers and the rose gold plating will perfectly complement summer-kissed skin.

Plaited bracelets

Ladies Unique & Co Stainless Steel & Leather With Labradorite & Leaf Charm Bracelet B293BL/19CM

Bracelet: Ladies' Unique & Co stainless steel and leather charm bracelet (RRP £55)/

Leaves and plaits are big trends at any festival and this stainless steel and leather charm bracelet from Unique & Co incorporates both. Plus, it's made from real leather, so it will feel extremely comfortable on your wrist. With a versatile black design that will go with just about everything, you can wear it for the entire weekend.

Waterproof watches

Casio Baby-G Beach Traveller Series Watch BGA-250-4AER

Watch: Ladies' Casio Baby-G Beach Traveller watch (RRP £89)

As we can't always guarantee what the weather will be like at the festival (especially in Britain!), it's best to wear a waterproof watch in case of rainy showers or muddy escapades. Silicone designs can be easily wiped down if the mud takes over or festival dirt takes its toll.

The Baby-G beach traveller watch from Casio is as practical as it is stylish. Completely shockproof and waterproof, it's great for tackling the mud and rain. The pink, beach-inspired design will bring summer influence as well as adding a pop of colour to your outfit. It even features a neon illuminator - ideal for those times when you're dancing in a dark tent and need to check the time.
