Festivals aren't just about legendary live bands or raving-it-up in the rain (although both of these are great). Bespoke, alternative festivals have popped up all over the place.

Get arty, practice your live-poetry skills and cloud-gaze to a backdrop of mellow beats – or maybe a local foodie festival is forthcoming.

Come rain or shine, rock or pop, stay sartorially savvy with these five festival outfit ideas for guys.

Band tee time

Men's Band Tee Festival Outfit

Key Piece: Official Bob Dylan T-Shirt, £14.99

Band tees are back, pick your fave and wear them on your chest with pride. This Boy Dylan t-shirt is a trendy tribute, or rock-out with a Guns & Roses or ACDC print tee.

Urban Outfitters have released a rocking collection just in time for festival season. Style your band tee with black ripped raw edge denim shorts.

Vintage sunny separates

Men's Vintage Pastels Festival Outfit

Key Piece: Men's French Connection Jopadhola Crew Neck Jumper, £29

Create a colourful look with a vintage feel – choose cotton-jersey sweatshirts and classic crew neck tees in pastel colours.

Faded pastel colours create that vintage effect – look for light yellow, faded raspberry and powder blues with a washed-down finish.

Wear them with distresssed denim shorts and frayed hems. Top off the look with a pair of vintage style sunglasses, like some half-frame Clubmasters.

Practical pieces

Men's Practical Festival Outfit

Key Piece: adidas Originals Windbreaker, £34.99

Keep your s**t together with a small backpack, sensible shoes (no white plimmies unless they're disposable) and a lightweight waterproof jacket.

An adidas Originals windbreaker jacket is a statement piece and a well-worth-it investment.

Cotton canvas backpacks in khaki and navy are great for festivals, Swedish label Sandqvist have a design-led range worth checking out.

Other festival essentials to pack are a couple of grey marl cotton-jersey tees and a zip-up hoodie.

Embroidery & patterned trims

Men's Boho Festival Outfit

Key Piece: Ted Baker Woven Geo Print T-Shirt, £45

Bohemian touches and embroidery add interest to simple t-shirts and denim. Look for woven fabrics and linen shirts for easygoing summer style.

Patterned details on t-shirt hems and cuffs are festival-fitting and add fun. Look out for distressed denim shorts or jeans with contrast patch pockets in bright embroidered patterns for extra detailing.

The onesie

Men's Onesie Festival Outfit

Key Piece: Camo Print Men's Onesie, £20

Getting dressed in a tent is a challenge. Slip-on a comfy jersey onesie at the start of the festival and hope for the best.

Look for zip-up onesie styles with incorporated hoods for added benefits. A camo-print onesie will diguise all manner of horrors, grass and mud stains included.
