If you are reading this right now, then it is officially half way through the two-weekend music festival extravaganza that is Coachella.
That means you’ve already been through one weekend of too many too long Snapchat stories, a steady stream of hazy filtered Instagram posts, and hours of listening to your friends recount every band that went up on stage.
Even if you aren’t in the indie music festival scene, Coachella offers a front row seat to the best offering of festival fashion. Since they huddled over their computers, relentlessly refreshing the page for tickets to go on sale, attendees have been meticulously planning and orchestrating flawless outfits for this highly anticipated weekend.
Flower headbands are considered staples, as are printed kimonos, gladiator sandals and cropped tops. Although there is a familiar uniform that can be found on every other girl you find there, there were some new and exciting looks sweeping the desert field. Here are some of the most notable trends you should be taking from the festival to your closet:
This season’s it-bag
The Chloe Drew chain shoulder bag was the partner in crime to every blogger and fashionista this weekend. It’s adorned with perfect gold hardware to compliment the wide variety of luxe colors and patterns the satchel comes in. Everyone from fashion blogger Julie Sariñana to Victoria Secret model Rosie Hunington-Whiteley was spotted sports this chic carryall.
Last spring we saw the emergence of the two-piece ensemble look, and it came back strong again at this weekend’s festivities. Choose from a matching set or go for a retro glam look (see top right photo).
White with lace all over
White lacey pieces were abundant at every party, campsite and stage front. This romantic look is a favorite this season and could be found in all forms, from tops, to jumpsuits, to dresses. My favorite look of the three days definitely has to go Rosie Hunington-Whiteley for her stunning little Chloe slip dress (see second to the bottom, left).
