What’s the weather forecast saying about Glastonbury today hey?

Here are the best ponchos out there so you can stay dry, and look like a festival idiot at the same time if the famous Glastonbury rain should start to pour.

If you’ve been checking out my festival fashion posts here and here no doubt you’ll be planned down to a tee. So there’s no need to cover them up when the rain comes out – check out this transparent raincoat. There are loads of piping choices to go for and rumour has it (I read in the comments) it’s the most rain proof rainproof you’ll ever own. Nice.

A raincoat for the more elegant among us, this Joules offering is one of my favourites. Easy to wear too as you just pull it over your head – no need to faff with any buttons or zips – meaning it’s light too.

Ooo they’ve got a pink one with horsey’s on too, and that one’s the cheapest!

But you might like to get this pug printed poncho to show off your love for the dog that everyone else loves, apart from me. Wonder how much this guy got paid to stand there in all these ponchos?
