Coachella Fashion – Your Guide to 2013 Styles and Trends

Posted March 27, 2013 by in Traveling/ Trends

Coachella is only 16 days away! I personally get a lot of my style inspiration from street style photos snapped at the famed music festival; I just love the modern bohemian look!

If you’re heading to Coachella for the first time this year, think twice about your attire. Here are some suggestions for how to dress (and stay fashionable) for the temperamental SoCal weather:

1. Layer it on

When the sun goes down in the desert, temperatures drop. Be prepared for any weather by layering your wardrobe. Make the practical look chic by mismatching textures, patterns, and colors.

This trucker jacket from Levi’s is a classic. Its lightweight cotton material makes it perfect for layering. We like it in the light destructed finish paired with a flowy dress or over a plain white t-shirt with a pair of colorful shorts.

2. Don’t be afraid of color

Add contrast to the desert hues by throwing a pop of color in your outfit. This season, we like bold-but-beachy colors, like turquoise, coral and mint.

Have your boyfriend join in as well! These men’s 511 slim fit commuter shorts in oil blue from are the perfect way to brighten up his outfit.

For yourself, you can’t go wrong with a Gap T-shirt. The women’s colorblock slub baseball version is extra soft and slouchy, perfect for ultimate comfort and style. Pair the fire coral-colored shirt with cutoff denim shorts and comfy boots for a chic casual look.

Add an unexpected pop of color to your outfit with these Marc by Marc Jacobs retro aviator sunglasses in turquoise. The brown and blue hues pair perfectly with any getup.


3. Maximize comfort

When picking an outfit, don’t forget that you’ll be standing for most of the day. Opting for flowy, lose fabrics and flat shoes are great ways to look stylish while staying cool and comfy.

A white button-up would work perfectly with a pair of denim shorts, a black tank and a fun necklace. Opt for a comfy worn-in version of a button-up instead of a slim fit. We really like this lived-in wash pocket shirt.

If you’re more on the girly side, wear a maxi dress instead of shorts. This Free People maxi dress is perfect for warm days and cool nights and the flowy fabric gives you plenty of room for movement.

For you feet, you could always go with a classic sandal but we definitely recommend a boot. This pair from Seychelles are simple yet fun. They’re comfy enough to dance in and they’ll protect your feet from the harsh sun.

And remember, no music festival is complete without a flower headband! Either make one yourself by following this tutorial or purchase one here.
