When it comes to festivals, planning your outfits is all part of the fun.

But while it is easy to pick out some cute denim shorts and a pair of wellies, selecting the perfect handbag isn’t quite so simple.

You don’t want it to be too big, nor too small and, most importantly, it needs to be secure to ensure all of your belongings are safe.

We’ve put together our top picks to save you some of the legwork. Enjoy!

We are swooning over this bag. Almost too good to take to a muddy field, but it would definitely top off any festival outfit to a tee. What a beaut.

If a bumbag is what you’re after, but you don’t fancy shelling out £55 for a pom pom one, this cute black number will do the job! Thrifty, secure and looks pretty darn cool on this model, right?

Khaki Cross Body Bag, £25.

This cross body bag will keep you looking on trend in the field, thanks to its metal chain strap and tassel detail. Given that it is made of polyurethane, it’s likely to withstand a bit of rain too. Not that you want it to rain, obvs.

Black Leather Embellished Pom Pom Bum bag, £55.

Be warned, although this bumbag is utterly amazing, it doesn’t come cheap. BUT, it is limited edition, decorated with zesty pom poms and will keep your belongings safe as you bounce around to the headline act.

Suede Mobile Phone Bag, £34.99.

We love this little suede bag, as it has festival written all over it. There’s just enough room for your phone, cash and possibly even a lip gloss. What more do you need when heading to the main stage?

This summery bag is embellished with pretty coins and beads, topped off with a bright pink tassel. It has a zip fastening and a detachable body strap, meaning it can double up as a cute clutch once the festival is over.
