One of the best things about a Kiwi summer is all of the music festivals on the horizon. One of our festival highlights is Laneway, taking place at Albert Park on Auckland Anniversary day. We thought we would take away the stress of what to wear to your next festival with these outfit ideas from some of our favourite retailers in the heart of Auckland city. Here is our men’s edit:

This classic stripe tank will keep you cool as you soak up the sun during your festival fun this summer and will easily pair with whatever shorts or pants you choose.
R.M Williams | 8 Customs St East
Scarborough short, $145
We think this classic pair of shorts from the masters of quality, R.M Williams is just what you need for a full day of festival fun. They are light and comfortable and the colour will go with anything, making sure they will get a lot of love post-festival too.
Huffer | 12 Customs St East
