Another weekend, another festival. This time, the "It" Brits headed to Glastonbury — arguably the UK's most famous music event — which draws fans from all over the world for five days of tunes, togetherness and, normally, lots and lots of mud.

This year, some of our favorite ladies from across the pond headed to the festival, and the fashion seemed to fall into one of three camps. The first: transitional dressing for the unpredictable weather. Girls like Daisy Lowe and Alexa Chung opted for wellies or combat boots and made sure to have a leather jacket on hand just in case the skies opened up. 

Next, the festival cowgirl seemed to be having a moment. Rita Ora showed up one day wearing cow-printed overalls paired with Western fringe boots, and the next, she took an even more literal approach with a cowboy hat, a fringed bag and a vest open over a denim shirt. Florence Welch also got the wild, Wild West memo, opting for a bolo tie, a suede vest and a fringed leather jacket — embroidered with a longhorn — to match.

Finally, many of the attendees went the retro route, including Prince Harry's ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas, who wore an oversized Hooter's tee accessorized with a hair scrunchie. Hey, at least it wasn't a Native American headdress, right?
