Get festival ready with our pick of Macs for an Irish summer

The humble mac has had a fashion makeover this summer. Here are the high street's best...

From Belsonic to Electric Picnic and everything in between, you're gonna need waterproofs

COMPARED with, say, a lace dress or ankle strap heels, the word anorak doesn't quite get our sartorial hearts beating in the same way, does it?

And yet a waterproof jacket is an absolute essential if you're heading to a summer festival, be it Belsonic, Electric Picnic, Glasto or Stendhal – or any other festival in these islands for that matter – for obvious reasons.

But this summer the fashion gods have answered our prayers, because right now there are tons of macs in the shops that will actually have you praying for rain.

Well, not really, but if you do have to pack a mac, make sure it's one of these cool cover-ups...
