Ah Coachella, a once-a-year opportunity to not only listen to fantastic music and party with friends but also one of the best places to let your fashion sense shine. Coachella is known for its trendy festival goers who arrive in unique bohemian outfits that you couldn’t miss anywhere.
Yet, besides looking fabulous, you also have to dress for comfort. Since the festival lasts for several days, you’ll be doing quite a bit of walking, so it helps to know the best tips for combining fashion with practicality. If you’re going to Coachella this year and need a little guidance on what to wear, here are some of the best fashion tips for dressing to impress.
Combine Boho with Chic
There’s chic, there’s boho, and then there’s boho-chic. What exactly does that mean? It means combining the best of both worlds into an aesthetic that is one step above bohemian, yet not quite chic.
It’s all about combining flowing maxi dresses crochet tops, leather bags, and earthy tones. Instead of something like stripes or polka dots, you want to embrace florals and fringe. Think of it this way, you want to look like a hippie, yet, a hippie with taste.
Wear the Right Shoes
The right shoes are incredibly important when it comes to navigating the festival grounds. You never know when it could rain, or you could be walking over uneven terrain, which can lead to sore feet and blisters. Although you might be dying to wear your cutest new pair of sandals, it’s better to opt for closed-toed shoes to avoid getting stepped on.
Remember, there are plenty of people all over the place, so it’s important that you protect your feet as much as possible. If you get your foot smashed while dancing to your favorite band, you’re going to have to spend the rest of the festival on crutches which, you can rest assured, will not be very fun.
Bring Versatile Clothing
Even though Coachella takes place in the spring, don’t forget that it takes place in the desert. Anyone who’s ever been to the desert before can tell you that you never know what kind of weather can come. One minute it may be blazing hot, while the next minute it might be freezing cold with torrential downpours. It’s safe to say that Coachella has fluctuating temperatures throughout the festival. So, bring clothing that is suitable for warm and cold weather, and you’ll thank yourself for it later.
Half of the fun of Coachella is accessorizing! Bring plenty of accessories, from hats to bracelets, to necklaces. Statement pieces are a must if you hope to stand out. The more creative you can get with your accessories, the better, and you’ll be happy to show off your photos on social media!
