You will get sweaty, your hair might turn into a mini rat’s nest and you might be sore from walking, but if nothing else, you will definitely look good while doing it all. Seriously, you will. One of the best parts about Coachella is the fashion scene that surrounds it. It’s an unspoken rule (almost) that you have to come dressed to impress. It is a mini fashion show. The Fashion Gods deemed this as their one weekend away from the catwalk. If you remember to pack nothing else, remember to grab almost anything with patterns, lots of jewelry, neutrals, dark denim, gold anything, tanks and lots of items to layer! Lucky for you we can break it down a little bit better and provide you with some Coachella looks straight from Sadie Slick that will make the fashion gods sing their praises.
Denim and flannels are always a Coachella favorite, and rightfully so. But we all know that the desert is less than forgiving when it comes to the ever-changing temperatures. Days can be blistering hot and nights can get a little chilly. You are not going to want to go back to your tent or glamp in fear of missing out on your favorite artist so remember to wear layers!
Wayf makes a to die for flannel. Seriously. Even if you aren’t going to Coachella, you need it. It looks like your typical red and blue flannel until you turn around and see the open back! Let the breeze make it fly while dancing to your favorite set or tie it around your waist for an ever-so Coachella look. It’s also thick enough to keep you warm when the sun sets. Can we love this flannel anymore? You literally can’t go wrong pairing the Wayf flannel with a black bra from MinkPink and bandit denim shorts from One Teaspoon. These booty-hugging shorts are going to be a weekend favorite. Trust me. You just might live in them all weekend.
Coachella is all about the accessories, and you will definitely need some pieces with this look. The multi-tone layered cross necklace from Twigs is the perfect statement piece and will look even better with the sun shining bouncing off the crystal embellishments. Throw on the neuf cuff and ring from Avant Garde, and you are ready!
Okay, fashionistas. This one is for you. Patterns, patterns and more patterns. This black and white dress patterned from Clayton is your sure way to stand out in the denim crowd at Coachella. The tank dress is figure fitting, with cut outs just above each hip.
When you are going to Coachella it is important to pack smart. Pack pieces you can wear a few times (minus your sweaty shirts). We left our floral crowns in 2014 and opted in for a beautiful crystal piece instead. This crystal “headpiece” is actually a beautiful necklace from Adorne. How much do we love that it gives you two looks in one? Wear it as a headpiece one day and a necklace the next.
Gold is always in, especially in summer when you have that bronzed goddess glow about you. This black natural stone ring set in gold from Krysia Renau is the only additional jewelry you’ll need to complete this look.
Can we say enough about prints and patterns at Coachella? These high-waisted shorts from MinkPink with a super soft black tank from Clayton are the perfect way to keep cool and beat the heat throughout the day.
We love the necklace from G2G, which can be worn long or as a choker. Keep the color pop going with a beautiful cuff from Adorne. Simple and trendy.
Told ya. Coachella is not for sissies. This Sadie Slick tank comes in both black and white. It’s loose and flowy, which is perfect for the weather. And if you are going to bring a pair of jeans, you’re going to want to bring these ripped jeans from One Teaspoon. The color and the holes just say, “festival.” And trust me when I say to leave your white jeans at home. You can thank me later.
The Chan Luu button-up is everything. It is lightweight and sheer, but perfect to cover up with at night. And we totally love that it shares a similar pattern to a bandana, only a million times better. Can you tell we love multi-layer jewelry? This multi-layer dagger necklace from VSA really completes this look and is totally cute.
And for those temperature-reaching days, it’s totally acceptable to wear a bra (not your nude every day one) and any statement necklace. I promise you won’t be the only one. When in the desert right?
The Paloma sequined bra from Chan Luu is not only adorable, but comfortable too. I am all about small details, and I absolutely love the t-back on this one. You’ll look extra glowy as this shimmery bra brings out your bronzed skin tone. Throw on our beloved multi-layer dagger necklace from VSA.
Can we talk about how much we love these pants from Bishop & Young? Patterned, light weight, hip hugging and look super cute with a pair of booties. Seriously what more could you want for your Coachella look? Throw on the black tank from Clayton and a beautiful earth-toned necklace from Chan Luu and you are set!
