What do fans of good music and fashion lovers have in common? Coachella Festival! Every year, they gather in Indio (California) to spend a few crazy days, have fun until dawn and… show off their best dressed outfits. But what exactly is a festival? How do you adopt the Coachella style on a daily basis? And why is it so hip? The questions we unpack for you!
What is the Coachella style and why is it so popular?
The Coachella Music Festival is a springtime event not to be missed, as famous for its concerts as it is for its costumes. Every April, we see a group of celebrities and influencers wear hippie chic looks for the event. An inexhaustible source of inspiration, the festival is governed by a well-defined dress code. The clothes of the stars should be light enough to withstand the scorching heat of the desert, but also very stylish in order to gain followers on social networks. Palazzo pants, ruffled dresses, maxi skirts, vintage sunglasses, sparkly jewelry, straw hats, flower tiaras, feather accessories… Coachella style reigns supreme! So it’s no surprise that it affects our summer wardrobes.
The origins and history of the festival
Like every year, the Coachella Festival opens against a backdrop of exceptional concerts and dance evenings. 2022 was no exception. Founded by Paul Tollett in 1999, the event takes place amidst palm trees, on a polo field located in the Coachella Valley, fitting festival-goers day in and day out. In fact, it is very common to set up special airlines for the occasion, to connect them directly to Los Angeles. With its remote location in the middle of the desert, Coachella is a true dreamy place with the feel of an amusement park with theaters, shops, food and drink stalls, artwork and more. Therefore, we have fun and show off our best outfits in front of a beautiful panorama during the week.
Coachella style, an inexhaustible source of fashion inspiration
Coachella is a festival, but also a show that seeks to influence current fashion trends. Memories of the most elegant fashion designers remain, and therefore in our fashion files. Every year, there is bohemian style, vibrant colors and vintage accessories. Sobriety is rarely present. So it is better to do more than not enough. Bohemian dresses, floral necklines, ’60s headbands, denim shorts, split hem jeans, fringe, boots, cowboy boots, braided hairstyles, pink or rainbow hair, floral prints or tie and dye. We’re copying these hippie chic looks and showing off this summer’s evening look.
The best festival outfits to steal from the stars for summer evenings
To easily embrace Coachella style on a day or evening basis, you have two options: Dare to look hippie chic with strong pieces like bohemian dresses, printed tops, slit skirts, fringed ankle boots and scarves. Wear it in small touches with trendy accessories. Either way, we’re inspired by the wardrobe of our favorite festival goers! Some of the stars love the California festival so much that they usually go there every year, without exception.
