Buy of the day: Festival countdown number one: the parka

Starting our countdown to Latitude with the must-have buys to see you through the festival in style

If you are anything like us here at Life Matters HQ you will be jumping up and down with excitement as it's only a week until the Latitude festival kicks off.

For those of you that are going to camp at the festival for the four days you will probably be starting to think about your festival wardrobe.

This is why over the next week we will be finding you the key things to pack in your rucksack this year.

Number one on your festival fashion list should be a parka. It's great to keep you dry if there are a few showers (fingers crossed there won't be) and the parka looks stylish when worn over your dress, skirt, leggings, shorts or jeans, meaning that you will score style points.

Life Matters loves this polka dot parka from Internationale in The Mall. And at �11.99 it doesn't take too much away from your festival budget.
