La Bella Coachella

The fashion tribes gathered once again this Easter, in their glitter and glory, turning the festival fields of Coachella into a  colourful catwalk, to see and be seen. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival was as spectacular as ever this year and kicks off the start of festival season with an almighty fashion bang! With a musical lineup as eclectic as the outfits,  Coachella is a real feast for the senses. This year’s artists included Tame Impala, Weezer, The 1975, Aphex Twin, Billie Eilish, South Korean girl group BLACKPINK, Kanye West and his sunday service, Donald Glover, Deep dish, Christine and the Queens, Maggie Rogers, Jaden Smith (with an appearance from his dad Will) and headliner Ariana Grande who also brought out special guests to the stage including the return of Justin Bieber! But of course, Coachella is more than just the music and we’re all just as interested in what they wore as much as what they listened to!

From bohemian babes to latex lovers, Hipsters, glamsters, punk and grunge…

Here are some of the best Coachella 2019 outfits


Coachella – fashion tribe or music vibe?

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. BohemianHippie (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!




















The festival season is upon us and with it comes a fresh wave of boho, hippie and grunge-inspired styles and ideas for the summer ahead. As we all know, music festivals aren’t just about the music; fashion and music remain as undeniably entwined as ever. Festivals offer us the freedom to express ourselves, outside of everyday life. Shrouded in that refreshingly infectious  ‘anything goes’ atmosphere, they are a haven for exciting, interesting and daring fashion statements which give the nod to almost every genre out there!

Kicking off 2013’s ‘bigger’ festivals this year; Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, where people from around the world gathered in California to disco in the desert. Aside from pertaining to an excellent musical line-up this year (Blur, The Stone Roses, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, New Order….. the envy-inducing list goes on), the Coachella Festival has also been highly-esteemed as one of the “most fashionable” music festivals around. So, if like me, you were not lucky enough to attend this year, let us grasp some summer inspiration from the following photos of this year’s festival-goers…..
