Socks and wellies see out Bestival

The festival season may be coming to an end in Britain, but this year's hottest trend has not started to let up.

Once more, many revellers have been spotted sporting a pair of socks underneath their wellies, this time at Bestival on the Isle of Wight.

The festival has had a set fancy dress theme since 2006, following an attempt to set a world record for the most people in fancy dress at one event in 2005.

This year the theme was 'HMS Bestival' which was followed by this pictured trio, who alongside the socks and wellies combo decided to sport nautical headwear as well. They also added one of the year's biggest comeback garments, by strapping bumbags around their waists.

Elton John was the main headline attraction for the three-day festival, with the singer closing out proceedings on Sunday night.

Other big names that took to the Robin Hill Country Park stage included Snoop Dogg, Fatboy Slim, Franz Ferdinand and Jessie Ware.
