When you think of festival fashion, gladiator sandals and denim shorts might spring to mind. But this year, there's a surprising footwear must-have that's been hot-to-trot with A-listers like Joan Smalls and Josephine Skriver - the Timberland boot.

Often seen as an Autumn or Winter item, this boot infact transcends the seasons, and Coachella is living proof of that. There, the lace-up, worker boots made a big comeback, and set the tone for every upcoming UK festival this year.

Perhaps there was something about Timberland's new pastel range 'Slim Premium 6 Inch Boots' that caught the eye of the celebrities at Coachella, or perhaps it's the fact that these ankle boots ooze an understated cool-girl vibe. Either way, we're down with the trend, and here's how you can get in on it, too...

Festival Styling

We arguably first saw desert-ready, festival boots pop up in Mad Max: Fury Road, which saw Charlize Theron trailblaze across an post-apocalyptic wasteland in heavy-duty black boots. Since then, celebrities like Josephine Skrier have been following suit. The Victoria's Secret model paired her Timberlands with high black socks and untied laces at Coachella.

You can expect more A-list stars to rock romantic Spring clothes with tough boots while attending Summer festivals, so be sure to take a leaf out of their styling books. After all, flimsy sandals won't suffice while you dance the night away - a heavy combat boot is a much more suitable choice of footwear, and it'll also protect your feet from those hazardous stomping ravers.

Night-time Styling

For warm Summer nights pre-festival season, follow in the footsteps of style maven Rihanna (who has long been a fan of custom Timberlands), and trade in your denim dress or a shorts for a pair of jeans and boots. The best thing about wearing these boots is that they look smart enough to elevate your outfit, and at the same time, they're much easier to walk in than heels. Plus, if you struggle with adding colour to your wardrobe, pastel boots, like Timberland's dusty pink or pale blue ones, will help you do the job.
