The musical lineup at Glastonbury changes every year, but one thing stays the same: the mud.
Every single year, the five-day music and arts festival, held in Somerset, UK, quickly and inevitably descends into a giant mud pie. This has given rise to the ‘gumboot as fashun statement’ movement, thanks in no small part to Glasto devotees like Kate Moss.
This year’s event was no different, with everyone from Alexa Chung to Cara Delevingne working a pair of mud-splattered wellies into their ~festival style~.
It seems there’s no limit to what the humble gumboot can be worn with — dainty floral dresses, skirts, shorts, fishnet stockings jumpsuits, construction jackets (more on that in a moment), you name it. Here are some of the combos we’ve spotted:
The Brit model and TV presented managed to jam two different varieties of Hunter gumboot into her Glastonbury bag.
She teamed her high-rise pair with shiny, leather-look (or possibly real leather) pants and an anorak, and wore her shorter pair with that other festival pre-requisite: high-waisted denim cut-offs.

Never one to play the wallflower, the Paper Towns star rocked up to the festival with blue-dipped plaits and some accessories that takes us back to our childhoods — a bumbag (for hands-free festival fun) and a bucket hat (no hat, no play, remember).
As for the neon orange parkas Delevingne and fellow model Suki Waterhouse were photographed wearing... well, perhaps they were responsible for crowd control? Or directing air traffic?
