28 Inspirational Fashion Ideas for Coachella

An collection of fashion inspiration so you can rock the perfect outfit at Coachella Music Festival.

It’s that time of year again where fashion-forward, music lovers flock to the California desert for Coachella Music Festival.  The event which takes place over two weekends is equally a music show as it is a fashion show. From the heat comes the sweat, from the trampled lawn comes the mud and from the drunkeness comes the beer spillage, so one must prepare for all of the above.  Translation? Something not too heavy, appropriate footwear and the latter – well there is just no avoiding that.  Not sure what to wear? Take a look through the gallery below of 28 inspiration ideas.

The Mini Dress

Whether its a crocheted mini or something that will not leave you dripping in swear considering the heat in the desert, a mini dress is a perfect and easy choice. Pair it with some great shoes and shades and you are set.

Fun and Flowy

Sometimes its nice to have a long, flowy dress at the festival, mainly for the reason that should you need to sit on the grass you won’t be flashing your undergarments.

In Your Hair

 On Your Feet

Last but certainly not least is what you are going to wear on your feet.  There will be mud.  There will be drunks who will step on your feet so sandal wearers proceed with caution.  From cowboy boots to army boots, there are plenty of options.
