Glastonbury: The small hippie festival that began in the '70s now sees more than 170,000 people descend on Somerset in the UK's southwest for five days of frivolity. As this year's festival has already kicked off (and is still going), we're predicting the fashion trends that we'll be seeing fill up our Instagram feeds—rain, hail, or mud—this weekend. Outdoor festivals (especially California's Coachella) are notoriously known for over-the-top trends, such as the floral head crowns, crochet bikini tops, glitter, fake tattoos, dyed hair, excessive fringing, and the list goes on. The Brits, however, have a different approach to festival dressing. They seem to take it down a few notches and stick with what's comfortable and weather-appropriate, all while still looking effortlessly grungy and cool. We're looking to the British fashion girls (the likes of Alexa Chung, Edie Campbell, and Poppy Delevingne) foremost for inspiration, to focus on what trends are taking over this year.

Chung ditches the leather pants this year and teams a vinyl pair with a slogan tee and brown coat—all while keeping things casual and mud-friendly with Hunter gumboots.
