What do you get when you combine all the spirit of Woodstock with the top hits currently playing on the radio and stylish boho fashion? Welcome to Coachella, the super popular annual music festival held in Southern California. Get inspired by the fun and free spirited styles seen there. Anyone needing a little inspo can peruse Pinterest for a look at the photos and start to immediately get the vibe, deep-down. Read on to get even more insight into the biggest styles of festival season 2016.
Chloe makes Coachella happen on every level, so be sure to check them out for inspiration. There’s going to be a lot of this designer brand adorning the festival cut-loose action, with styles with Coachella spirit in mind, surely. Their ecru and multi-colored jumpsuit says it all, with its silk blend floral lace detailing, spaghetti straps and tassel detailing. With eloquently blocked and bordered floral-blocked prints, a perfectly loose fit and impressive and comfy drawstring cuffs (which can be let out to create more of a dress appearance–who knew?) another style we see coming to Coachella is the green silk blend drop-crotch jumpsuit. We love the U neck, sleeveless, side-pocketed style and awesome draping details which further the “haute.”
Gwen’s Doing Denim
In seeking the most fitting looks, why not direct our attention to the headliners of this high-end festival? Take the ever-platinum Gwen Stefani, who can turn a major utility into a form of exotic desire like nobody else can. She rocks everywhere she goes, from running errands with adorable son Kingston to performing on stage, clad in what has become her go-to fave: a boiler room styled denim jumpsuit. Daytime pairings include strappy heels, fedora and accordion-bag. Stage appearances find the Zara jumpsuit’s top half folded and arms neatly tucked into a low St. Laurent belt.
Coachella Festival Footwear
First things to consider when choosing your Coachella footwear are comfort and dirt. Dirt? Yes, Coachella is an outdoor festival and trekking through the grass and dirt will more than likely ruin a pair of fresh white kicks. We advise a pair of comfy low booties with the more boho details, the better (think studs, fringe and feathers) or a pair of high Grecian or lace up sandals. Either of these styles is sure to up to your chic factor while keeping you comfy. Another style to consider is the platform. Seems like only yesterday platform sandals cycled into and out of style. Well, guess what? They’re BACK, and amazing, and now called “flatforms!” These will be THE Coachella shoe in 2016! New effects come from top designers, like Alexander Wang, with his metallic studs, Teva with their own horse in the race and Stella McCartney, in her never failing to impress style. Check out her Chinese-styled black strap platforms right now! And if you only buy one pair, make them the Sigerson Morrison Cosie Flatform Sandals, which we love for festival season. Buttery suede upper on jute-wrapped platforms, featuring the ideal rubber soles and fring with wraparound ties–it just doesn’t get more Coachella than this!
