Festival season is upon us—starting with Southern California’s Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival. Want to stand out from the crowd? I’ve curated a list of everything you’ll need for desert dancing!
Channel classic festival style staples with editorial restraint. Combining fringe, flower crowns, and crocheted crop tops in a single look will send your festival style overboard. Can’t decide whether to rock your best 70s or 90s look or go full on alien space glam? Play with your looks over the three days of the festival to fit it all in.
Think smart. Choosing one easy sandal that works with everything is the best way to keep your packing list light, and keep it simple when you’re scrambling to get dressed in the morning before the first set starts.
Since you’ll want to bring along your personal effects, ditch your daily shoulder bag. Opt for a mini backpack so you can dance hands-free. Choose looks that make you feel good, and don’t need a lot of adjustment through the day. You want to focus on the stage, not your outfit. And don’t forget that when the sun sets, the temperature drops. Be prepared with a distressed denim jacket you can sling around your waist during the day, and throw on top of your outfit at night.
At the end of the day, Coachella style is all about carefree fun. Don’t be afraid to accessorize Princess Leia buns with fun hair glitter, or decorate your face with gemstones. Ready to go? Check out my outfit suggestions:
