Shorts For The Festival Season

If you are looking for cheap women’s shorts in the UK, you’ll be in very good company right now, for summer is looming and for many that means just one thing - festivals.

The last couple of years have been a tough time for many festival goers. 2020 was, needless to say, a write-off, while last year saw only some festivals taking place and many of the events that did requiring a lot of last-minute lateral flow tests. There were also worrying reports of some going in despite failing these tests, such as at the Reading Festival.

Now, however, the situation is very different. A combination of the mildness of Omicron, widespread vaccination and the fact that most festival goers are younger and thus less vulnerable means we are now ‘living with Covid’ and can expect a more normal festival season.

That means the focus can switch back to the things people care most about: music, having a great time camping with friends, and the great tradition of walking around in shorts and wellies in areas only slightly less muddy than a First World War battlefield.

Some festivals are actually taking place in May, but it is from June onwards that the season starts to kick in with the biggest events of all, with Download, Parklife, The Isle of Wight Festival and, of course, Glastonbury.

Glastonbury is often famous for its mud and while long days of June sunshine might occasionally visit themselves upon Worthy Farm, it is just as likely that those coming to see the likes of Billie Eilish, Paul McCartney and Diana Ross will do so in a downpour. Long trousers and, worst still, jeans will be pretty unpleasant things to wear in the wet.

If it is nice though, those shorts could be just the thing in the heat, even if your footwear might not quite fit the bill.  Best to bring some flip-flops too.

July will bring further great festivals such as Blue dot, Bestival, Latitude and Wireless, while August features Creamfields, Reading / Leeds, and V Festival. Nobody in Reading will be worrying about lateral flow tests this time, but it might still be a wet and muddy time both there and at Leeds.

These are just some of the better known festivals, of course. You might fancy making the most of 2022 by trying a new festival that you have never attended before, which might bring all sorts of new experiences but could also turn out to be the muddiest one you have attended yet.

Of course, festivals won’t be the only reason to get a nice pair of shorts. If the summer is a sunny one, it could be a great thing to wear on holiday and especially on the beach, not least if you don’t want to show off a bit more by wearing a swimsuit.

In fact, shorts can be a nice thing to wear at any time in summer. It doesn’t have to be a special occasion; you could simply have them on while sitting out in the sun in the garden or walking down the street. Just don’t try to combine them with wellies then.
