Coachella Trendspotting! Check Out Hot Styles for the Desert Music Event!
It’s almost that time– and you need to get your fashion — and SPF — groove on if you are heading to Indio for the Coachella Music Festival. CRAZY INSANE is what it is with hot days and much cooler nights. So you have to pack a car and a back pack carefully! Looking fab will be easier with this easy fashion guide!
1. Layer it on.
When the sun goes down in the desert, temperatures drop. Be prepared for any weather by layering your wardrobe. Make the practical look chic by mismatching textures, patterns, and colors-the oh-so-boho vibe is sure to turn heads at the concert.
Levi’s women’s authentic trucker jacket is a classic. Its lightweight cotton material makes it perfect for layering. I like it in the light destructed finish paired with a flowy dress or over a plain white t-shirt with a pair of colorful shorts. Want to be bolder? Go color-blocking it with bright shorts and contrasting bright tee too! Take more than one tee because you will need it! $98 Levis Jacket CLICK HERE
2. Don’t be afraid of color.
Add contrast to the desert hues by throwing a pop of color in your outfit. This season, we like bold-but-beachy colors, like turquoise, coral, and mint. For guys.. they can toss on almost any color tee or tank with these cool shorts.
Levi’s men’s 511 slim fit commuter shorts in oil blue are the perfect way to brighten up any outfit. The performance stretch fabric is comfortable and water resistant. $64 Men’s beachy shorts
You can’t go wrong with a Gap T-shirt. The women’s colorblock slub baseball version is extra soft and slouchy, perfect for ultimate comfort and style. Pair the fire coral-colored shirt with cutoff denim shorts and comfy boots (or colorful flip-flops) for a chic casual look. $22.96 Gap Tee
Add an unexpected pop of color to your outfit with these Marc by Marc Jacobs retro aviator sunglasses in turquoise. The brown and blue hues pair perfectly with any getup. $110

3. Maximize comfort.
When picking an outfit, don’t forget that you’ll be standing for most of the day. Opting for flowy, lose fabrics and flat shoes are great ways to look great while staying cool and comfy. For guys this is ideal- or if you can find it in a bright color and layer over a contrast color tee– you will be able to FIND HIM in the crowd!
Gap’s lived-in wash pocket shirt looks great, and it won’t have you fidgeting. Opt for this comfy and worn-in version of a button-up instead of a slim fit version. $46.95 Gap Shirt
This Free People maxi dress is perfect for warm days and cool nights. The flowy fabric gives you plenty of room for movement. $168 Maxi dress
In case you can’t afford this price tag or other items, do check out TARGET, Marshalls, TJ Maxx or Ross or your local thrift store for items that are affordable — and in the case of thrift stores– more authentically vintage!
Seychelles’ Give Your Heart Away boots are made for walking. The leather and fabric boot will protect your feet, but they’re comfy enough to dance in. $112.49 Seychelles boots

While I have other things to add: hats– for guys and girls; serious sunscreen (lots of it); a change of shorts and/or pants for the evening and don’t forget a pillow & sleeping bag in the car.
