In honor of the awesome weather this past week and the start of the first weekend of Coachella today, I will be bringing you some Coachella inspired outfits across this weekend and next! Maybe this is how I make up for not being cool enough to actually go to Coachella this year. But what do you expect when the artist line up continually kicks the previous year’s lineups ass, and where tickets to both weekends of the ginormous coveted music festival sell out within minutes of going on sale. Next year, baby, next year…(something I’ve said for the past 3 years.)
Regardless, for chicks, we all know and love Coachella as not just a music festival, but the best of the best in summer fashion. Coachella is like New York Fashion Week for hipsters and boho beach babes. Gypsy dresses, crotchet this, crotchet that, floppy hats, fringe, flower crowns, ankle boots, lace, and denim. Lots and lots of denim. Maybe it’s cliché to take such styling approaches for this event, but one thing remains certain. It’s hot as hell in the middle of the desert in Indio, California. Always. Staying cool and comfortable is a top priority, and with the weather in LA this week being similar to that of a desert heatwave, I leave you with my first Coachella-inspired outfit of the weekend!
My trusty denim cutoffs (cut longer in the back so you’re not showing too much booty), a floral bustier crop top with a crotchet dolman sleeve top layered on top. Fringe booties that are comfortable enough to be walking in all day, but provide some height to make my long legs even longer in those cutoffs, topped of with a pair of my favorite retro cat-eye sunglasses. This outfit is great, because the floral crop top beneath the crotchet functions well as a top when combined with my high waisted shorts, should I feel the need to lose a layer. Excuse me while I blast some Broken Bells, Girl Talk, Chromeo and Aloe Blacc in honor of some of my favorites in today’s Day 1 lineup.
