So Coachella has come to an end and, once again, kick starts the festival trends for the summer ahead! With an A-list line up of artists including Guns n Roses, LCD Soundsystem, The Kills, Bat For Lashes, The Last Shadow Puppets and DJ’s Sasha and John Digweed (the list goes on), the music alone is enough to give you festival envy. But still, rightly or wrongly so (I can’t decide), it seems to be the revellers fashion choices that attracts the most attention, side tracking from the music, Coachella has become more infamous as a festival fashion parade!
Coachella is the closest thing the USA has to the UK’s ultimate music festival Glastonbury, the only thing that’s guaranteed to be better is the weather!! So with that in mind, celebrities and festival goers alike can really make the most of showing off their summer style. Bohemian–Hippie (with an added dose of sex appeal) seems to be the unwritten dress code. Long floaty dresses, grunge rock Tees, denim cut-off’s, floppy hats, coin jewellery, 70’s flares, Janis Joplin style sunnies, tassels, lace, crochet, tie-dye, and flower child head dresses are the apparent uniform!
Think ‘contrived Woodstock’ and you’ll get the idea!
My only hope is that these fashion concious beauties forget the fashion show and really get down and dirty to enjoy the music as the sun goes down! That’s really what it’s about after all!
Having said that, I can’t help but love some of the festival style on show each year at Coachella, so here’s a look at some of the best of 2016’s fashion tribe…..
Now, fashion show aside, here are a few of my fave pics from Coachella that remind us of why music festivals are so damn special! That feeling of freedom and ‘anything goes’, the electric energy and a vibe of ‘oneness’ that can’t be beaten no matter what you’re wearing!
