I'm looking for a cool festival look for the Electric Picnic this year. Have you any suggestions?

A Take inspiration for the Isabel Marant show this autumn which heavily referenced Navajo style and the Americana genre. Think fringing, feather earrings, ponchos and tassel boots and you have got the look. In fact, ponchos are making a massive return this autumn. They are a terrific fashion cover-up that will keep you warm while looking cool at the Picnic this season.

Kate Moss rocked a Penneys style at her recent hen night and River Island has great styles too. Fringe-trimmed high boots are a great alternative to wellies for the Picnic which is traditionally a drier, sunnier affair than its younger, muddier sister Oxegen!

Remember to keep the lower half of your outfit lean and tight when wearing a poncho -- dark, skinny jeans or leather pants would work a treat.

Finally, ditch the handbag in favour of a globe-trotting, festival-friendly, embroidered back-pack -- perfect for storing all your essentials while navigating fields to get to gigs in a hurry.
