I can already hear the Coachella fashion buzz, can you? It’s fascinating how a music festival has stirred up its own set of trends, as if it were New York Street Style! Over the last couple of years, Bohemian and Hippie style have dominated Coachella scenes, but this year, I foresee a little change.
Many of us from the other side of the globe have been keenly watching and following these trends even though we don’t get to be a part of the buzz. I’ve often been asked by men and women,
How can I bring the Coachella style to my look? Is there an appropriate occasion to rock the Coachella vibes?
Hello Sandy Summers!
Talk about Summer holidays and the men want to know how to dress comfy while looking uber cool. If you ask me, keep it casual with a Beach shirt on your T-shirt! Wear complementary coloured shorts, a belt that matches your moccasins (alternatives: loafers, slip-on, sneakers) and accessorise with a hat, sunglasses, bandana, wrist watch and a bracelet. If you want to keep it simple, skip the bandana and the bracelet. With a trendy Summer haircut and a splash of your favourite scent, you can get your swank side out!
Women love vacays and no matter where we go, we always want to look rad! For your beachy Summer getaway, try an uber chic décolleté top with bell sleeves. Jazz it up with patch work or interesting details on your shorts and take your shoe game to the next level with lace up gladiators. Accessorise with a straw hat, your favourite sunglasses (remember to pick out the right one for your face shape), stacked bracelet (finger or nose rings are an alternative), body tattoo (you’ve probably seen them at Coachella), a back or shoulder bag, and a stunning phone case (it’s all about the details honey). If you want to skip the hat, then try cross-weaved braids for a funky style. Lastly, do not forget to brazen your beach body with a spray-on highlighter!
I hope this style guide will make packing for your vacation super breezy! If you’d like a personalised style tip, don’t forget to share your Summer looks with me on my IG – @thatfancypants. Time to get that tan on!
Until next time, xx.
