Coachella is the perfect excuse to throw on your best outfit and show the world that you came to slay, and listen to some music along the way. It’s the worldwide famous musical event where art and fashion collide in order to create magic. It’s the time of the year when we’re jealous of every celeb for looking hot and having their best pics taken. Also, we’re faced with two types of people – Coachella and Nochella fans, along with a salty hashtag. However, we can’t help but notice that the festival outfits are getting lit every year, and it’s the perfect place for expressing your individuality through eccentric outfits with an ultimate boho touch. Coachella definitely sets the trends for the next year and here are some obligatory garments one must have in order to be a true festival fashionista.
High-waisted denim shorts paired with cute tops
At such a festival, everything is allowed. Let your imagination run wild by mixing and matching different staples and styles. A perfect pair of denim shorts is a must-have since you can pair them with everything. This includes off-shoulder tops, puff sleeve tops, crop tops, spaghetti strap tops and basic shirts. Also, logo shirts are more than welcome.
Stylish head to toe
Maxi and short dresses are the trademark of the festival. They are comfy, girly and you can wear them with both sneaks and slippers. Just like the previous year, ruffles and trumpet sleeves are major and they are an inevitable summer staple at every women’s clothing online store. Gladiator shoes are typical for this festival, so forget about the heels or uncomfortable footwear because these go well with any dress you choose. Coachella is nothing but laid-back style, so turn on your chill mode and live your best life!
Add some glamour to your casual style and complement your black lacey dress with a fake crystal tiara. This is how the Italian model and influencer Chiara Ferragni showed up one year and she also wore some cute biker boots and a Chanel backpack.
A black or brown suede fringe jacket, a poncho with fringe, gladiator shoes with fringe, bags with fringe, colored skinny glasses, a lot of subtle or statement jewelry and, of course, a hat. All of these scream Coachella and you know we’re not lying. Oh, and don’t forget about the flowers, temporary tattoos and embroidery. These are the essentials of the festival, so don’t dare miss them.
Mermaid makeup? Yaas
Although many prefer to go bare-faced for the desert, there are others who are obsessing over their makeup looks. Unicorns, rainbows and mermaids are having a moment right now and everybody’s trying to recreate some of the most iconic Instagram looks and bring them to the festival. Rainbow Dutch braids are super cool to start with and you’ll surely catch some stares when you show up. To achieve that mermaid look, play with pink, purple and blue eyeshadows, and don’t forget to add glitter and some zircons. You can also dye your hair pale pink or purple, or simply add a few permanent highlighters in that color. Or, add some glitter as well which is super cool and princessy.
Short linen rompers that are strappy, ruffled or off-shoulder are the comfiest wardrobe for the festival. They are lightweight and super chic as well. Pair them with some ankle pointy boots or over the knee boots and there goes your Bohemian goddess style. Accessorize your outfit with some chunky golden hoops or chokers, or stay simple with a lot of tiny and subtle bracelets and earrings in silver or gold.
Even if you’ve never had a chance to visit the Californian desert and experience the festival vibes, you can use its spirit as a fashion inspo for your daily summer outfits and rock them in your own style.
