What to Wear at Coachella 2017

Some people are into the spring season, summer season, or even snow season. But for me, it’s ALL about FESTIVAL season! And specifically: COACHELLA season.

When I think of Palm Desert, I instantly think of Coachella and all of its fabulous fashion glory that heads that way for two weekends straight. I think everyone loves Coachella so much (other than the fact that you can immerse in some of the best musical performances all in one day for three days straight) because it’s also one of the first times of the year you finally feel like you can embrace everything in your fun Spring / Summer wardrobe that's been dying to come out and play.

But the question that always haunts us festival fans during this ever-so-exciting time is: “WHAT DO I WEAR?!”

Have no fear my Palm Desert fans, because that’s why I’m here today—to bring in my (colorful) insight in what are five of the MUST-HAVE trends for this Coachella season to make you the coolest fashionista in all the desert land.



Crotchet TopsWhen I think “festival season fashion” the first thing that pops into my mind are crop tops, fringe, and crochet. Since the weather is hot and nice (for once!), it’s all about baring skin in the cutest little outfits you can find and pairing it with fun jean shorts so you can get a nice tan while you lay out on the grass listening to some of your favorite bands.

ShoesTo me, the number one most important thing when it comes to my Coachella outfit is—MY SHOES. When you’re spending your days hopping around from one party to another to then jumping into one crowded stage to another, you’ll be on your feet all day long so that’ll mean that you need a pair of shoes that can keep up with your busy schedule. Therefore, my must-have shoe type is always the ever so comfortable sneakers or combat boots that’ll keep you stylish yet in no pain. Because on top running around, you’ll also be surrounded by potential sandstorms and a huge crowd of people that will stomp on your feet so you want to make sure you protect because you’ll be to put good use into those two feet of yours for three days strong!

Body ArtIt’s no festival season with a little body art! And I feel like this is one of the few times throughout the year where you can go around wearing cute stars or freckles on your face without people asking what the occasion is. So don’t be shy and bring out all the metallics this weekend!

Layered JewleryIf there was ever a time to layer all your jewelry pieces together, Coachella is it! There’s just something about putting all of your metal favorites stacked on top of each other that just end up working perfectly for the desert to achieve that effortless bohemian look that makes you look like you’re not trying too hard.

MakeupSince I’m all about color EVERYTHING, to me, festival season means your makeup is no rainbow exception! But color enthusiast or not, I think this is the perfect time to step out of your normal makeup routine and comfort zone and go for something bright, bold and different. You’ll DEFINITELY be seeing me rocking something fun and colorful like this Urban Decay look below for this festival season!

Well, there you have it, just a few fashion MUSTS that will make you the desert bohemian goddess that you’ve always dreamt of being at Coachella 2017. Stay cool, stay hydrated, and make sure to take a lot of selfies and Snapchats to remember the weekend!
