What Girls Wear to Coachella

Coachella has come & gone. The music & arts festival is known for its unique street style. I went this year so I have a first-hand account of the current Coachella fashion. This set is kind of a mosaic, bits & pieces of trends that I witnessed over & over. Use this formula to create your own Coachella music festival inspired outfits.

coachella outfit

You'll need some element of crochet. A crocheted top or a crochet cover-up will work wonders.

Make sure to acquire your coolest exotic, tribal or bohemian inspired print. These are normally very flamboyant in both pattern & color. 

The most popular shoe that I saw were the ever famous booties -- a kind of a mini boot with a low cut & a low heel.

Add some fringe in your life to get that boho Coachella music festival style. From your faux suede fringe purse to your fringe tassel jacket. I even saw some fringe booties!

Accessorize your look with a floppy fedora. I'm not sure how to describe it other than a fedora but with a floppy brim. Go for a crochet fedora or a straw panama fedora.

Get your most 70s hippie-looking round sunglasses. The more whacky the color the better, like these round retro rainbow sunglasses.

Buy metallic temporary tattoos & adorn your body with several of them. One is not enough! This was a very prominent trend as far as women's Coachella fashion for 2015.

The body chain is a simple way to have jewelry all across your body. It doesn't have to be strictly necklaces or bracelets. A bronze cross body chain or a tiered thigh chain will do. Or maybe both.

What do you think about this Coachella music festival outfit? What's your favorite element? What would YOU wear? :]

  2. I love the body chain you've featured in this post. I'm yet to try one myself, but I'm seriously considering a subtle one for the summer! :) I'm glad you went to Coachella this year as so many people seem to have been disappointed they couldn't attend!

  6. I actually like all the things above, but if I had to choose only one I would go with exotic/tribal print, but that's just because I feel like it represents me better!

  10. My favorite element is definitely the hat because I hate the sun in my eyes and it's so stylish. I have a few floppy hats that I love. Great inspo!

    1. Hot & sweaty indeed, but you can always take it slow. Festivals often offer one-day passes. You should try it; it's about the music, the art, the experience. :]

  16. A good hate and pair of sunnies is essential to any event that is held outside in the sun for hours, gotta beat the heat and get as much shade as possible! Great picks!
