Wishful Thinking: What I Would Wear To Coachella

Happy festival season everyone! Festival season is a timeCoachella Style #2 for many electric dance music (EDM), pop, rock, and country shows. Festivals like these happen around the world and are a time for music lovers to come together to experience good music and a full out good time. Since there are so many festivals, I am certain you will find one that celebrates the music you like best. Upcoming festivals include Coachella, Mysteryland, Governors Ball, Bonnaroo, Electric Daisy Carnival, Tomorowland, Lollapalooza, and Electric Zoo.

In today’s post, I want to focus on one of the more popular music festivals, Coachella, which for most music lovers generally marks the kick-off of the music festival season.  The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, commonly referred to just as Coachella, is a yearly music and arts festival held in Indio, California.  This event features many genres of music, including rock, indie, hip-hop, and EDM. It also features an array of art exhibitions. This year Coachella will be celebrated the weekends of April 10th and 17th .Coachella Style #1

This festival includes popular musical artists, as well as lesser-known groups. Notable artists appearing in the past include Amy Winehouse, Snoop Dog, The Killers, Madonna, Daft Punk, Kayne West, Jay Z, Eminem, and Red Hot Chili Peppers.  This year’s festival will include performances by AC/DC, Drake, David Guetta and Florence and the Machine.  It’s no wonder why general admission tickets sold out in 20 minutes.

Coachella Style #4Coachella is not just about the music and art, but there’s also a good dose of fashion. Festival fashion is all about crop tops, concert tees, fringe, floral kimonos, high-waisted jean shorts, floral headbands, and a variety of flash tats.  When going to your favorite festival, don’t be afraid to step out of your style comfort zone and use your style as a way to express your creativity.

I put together a few style inspiration boards to show you what I would wear to Coachella if, that is I was actually able to scrounge tickets.  I had a lot of fun experimenting with different styles and colors.  I chose items that had a bohemian vibe, including warm colors, floral patterns, cream-colored tops and dresses, and fringe.  Of course, I had to add a few items with a smiley face design because this concert is all about feeling good and celebrating good vibes. When it comes to shoes, I chose shoes that were comfortable, yet stylish.  Combat boots, cowboy boots, and gladiator sandals are a must-have for any festival because you will be on your feet rocking and swaying all day.Coachella Style #3

If you’re not feeling the boho chic vibe, go for what I like to call the vintage concert style. This style includes concert tees from popular bands, like the Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, and the Who. These graphic tees will look great paired with high-waisted distressed denim shorts.

As for accessories, don’t forget floppy hats and hippie style glasses to protect your face and eyes from the desert sun.  Accessorize your outfit with floral headbands, statement jewelry, and flash tats. The sky is the limit when it comes to dressing for Coachella.

         Oh how I wish I could be at Coachella this year, but sadly, I’m stuck on the East coast finishing up a busy Spring semester at school.  Luckily, I have access to plenty of photos and videos from Coachella. If any of my readers are going to Coachella, please share what you plan to wear and your experience at the festival.  And for those, like me, who won’t be at Coachella, let me know your ideal Coachella outfit.

    I’m agree with you, Coachella is more than music festival. I like to see Coachella style such as pretty white top and denim with unique accessories!

    Very fun! I live pretty close to where Coachella is taking place and it’s been amusing lately to see how many people about town are dressed like they are going to Coachella (Even if they’re not). It’s almost like a holiday season or something where everyone gets in the spirit!
