Coachella, if there was a festival about dressing for festivals, this would be this one! This mother-of-all-bohemian-festivals is held every year during two weekends in April in Palm Springs, California. And while the line-up is packed with huge names like The Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys, Radiohead, Snoop Dogg, Florence+the Machine and (one hundred and thirty!!) others, it is definitely a place where laid back stylish people come to chill, listen to good music and flash their fashion sense.
Like every year in spring time, when we all get that weird ‘happy’ feeling that is so linked with the first rays of sun, we will start to look forward to dressing like a bohemian-meets-latest trends. And music festivals are in fact the best places to get that fashionable hippy vibe on. It’s the perfect occasion to bare that midriff with those cropped tops that are NOT suitable for any city fiësta. Coachella is becoming a place where it’s more tempting to look at what the festivalgoer’s are wearing, than what music is played on the main stage.
So take a note from the Californian sun and check 2012’s festival style like The Regulars (Kate Bosworth Dree Hemmingway and Diane Kruger), The Models (Arizona Muse, Hanne Gaby, Alek Wek, Kasia Struss), The Actors (Emma Roberts, Emma Whatson and Zoë Kravitz) and The Muscians (Florence Welsh, Katy Perry, Rihanna) do! Some great trends spotted during the first weekend are leopard, retro sunglasses, wide brim hats, cropped tops, vintage cut-off jeans, flowing printed pants and short suede IM boots.
