LUX Style: What to Wear to Coachella
For many festival-goers, Coachella is just as much about fashion as it is about the music. Arguably the most fashionable of all the music festivals, creating the perfect outfits for the weekend is a must. From fringe to lace, flowy dresses and gladiator sandals, we’ve got your ultimate guide to creating the perfect Coachella look.
Opt for a dress that’ll let you move freely and stay cool to beat the Coachella heat. A breezy silhouette and easy structure are ideal. Stand out in a patterned mini or dress up a lace racer back style with chic accessories. A bohemian maxi dress also sets the mood.
Not a dress girl? A romper serves as the perfect substitute for an on-trend look. These simple one-piece looks are a no-brainer and will keep you feeling comfortable. Find a sleeveless style with a graphic pattern, bold colors or playful cutouts to show your personality.
Crop tops are more popular than ever this year, and Coachella is the perfect place to bare a little midriff. For the ultimate boho chic look, pair a sexy fringe lace cami or a paisley cropped top with cutoff denim shorts. A lightweight muscle tee with the words “Make Love, Not War,” is also an appropriate option.
If you opt for a simple top or plain tee, add a little visual interest to your look with a fun pair of shorts. A daring print with neon trim, or high-waisted floral number is sure to stand out amongst the crowd. Eyelet embroidery and a zigzag hem bring delicate detail to a sweet cotton pair of shorts.
Gladiator sandals are everywhere for spring and the perfect footwear companion for Coachella 2014. If you opt for the bootie route, make sure you bring a comfortable pair to get you through the day. Fun fringe, snakeskin prints and braided details add a music festival vibe.
Keep your hands free and your belongings safe with a crossbody bag this year. The ultimate concert-going bag, a macrame style or bright color adds the perfect final touch to your festival look. Need more room? Look no further than a fringe, drawstring backpack from Cleobella.
Keep your accessories light and simple and add just enough to liven up your look. Add a pendant necklace to a cropped top or dress up your finger in a turquoise gypsy ring. A turban-inspired headband is a great way to keep locks in place and don’t forget a chic pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes.
