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!
