Whether you choose simple bell-bottoms, high-waist shorts with a cute dotted print or a denim vest, you’re bound to fit seamlessly into the festival atmosphere. Colour wise, lighter jeans is generally more preferred and widespread. A lovely jumpsuit is a great outfit for youngsters and everyone who can pull it off with style. Lastly, a caftan-like (but shorter) dress with intricate monochrome pattern is a total win, and an easy one-piece choice.
When you’re planning a two-piece outfit, you must decide on the place of the accent. If you’re more into donning an extravagant top, I’ve got some good suggestions for you. This fantastic multimedia event is all-permitting, so don’t be afraid to finally put on that lace-up bodysuit you have bought months ago but had no opportunity to wear. Wearing a crop top in ethnic or tropical pattern is also a way to get attention from the mindful eyes of the resident fashion experts.
If you’re opting for a calmer palette in your attire, you have to compensate on quirkiness with carefully picked accessories, and lots of it. We say you just can’t go wrong with Boho-themed jewelry.
Some of my favourites include inevitable hoop earrings with charms, numerous odd bracelets for both arms and necklaces with powerful pendants with a tribal sequence. Finally, if you’re a daredevil and a free spirit, adding a body piercing can definitely maximise your cool factor in the crowd.
Convenient hippy bags
I’m not fan of carrying bags at concerts, but when you’re having an all-day Coachella outing you simply have to pack your knick-knacks and necessities somewhere. Front and side tassels are IT for this year and decidedly boho-like style for the purses. Girly backpacks in cute pastel combos are not to be missed out, too!
While the past season was all about a mirror trend, this Coachella season we’re expecting a slightly toned down eyewear. Catty, round and octagonal metal rimmed specks in light blue and brown are the way to go when selecting a pair of sunglasses for the daytime performances. Stay sharp and protected while you’re rocking out in the sun.
You don’t know how to pair up your beloved Sponge Bob inspired pineapple pants? Coachella is the right place to wear your most outrageous piece, and with pride. Mind that you should keep your top less show-offy in this case so you wouldn’t look too mismatched. Back up your attire choices with some extra B&W striped leggings or long skirts featuring a Bohemian vibe.
Pretty shoes are life, but not everyone can party non-stop in heels like Paris Hilton. The heat and the sweating will be tough to our feet, so try to find a balance between a comfortable and summer-appropriate model. Oxford shoes with super high sole are so 2016 and fit for making bold steps around the venue. Alternatively, let your feet breathe in some wide-laced flats.
If you had plans to visit the Coachella this time of the year, consider complementing it with an impeccably styled outfit. These picks are also total instabaits and spot-on streetwear for everyday occasions.
