The first weekend of Coachella has just wrapped up, and we're already drying our mental tears and laying our flower crowns to peace (for now at least). With a hypnotizing line-up ranging from The Dum Dum Girls to Grouplove and everyone's Sunday night jam, Lana Del Rey, there's no denying that Coachella knows how to perfectly kick off a music festival. Imagine your Spotify playlist becoming the ultimate reality, fist-pumping and psychedelic lights included.
But enough about the grooves. Let's talk another Coachella essential: fashion, obviously. Every year, the valley can never escape the sea of bohemian beauties that has us suddenly coveting for a fringed backpack or retro sunnies. And weekend one was certainly no exception. This year, Cali festival street style is all about skin, skin, skin. Think ripped high-waisted shorts and black leather paired with cropped tees and lace bralettes. Off-the-shoulder numbers were also common, as were plaid shirts and slouchy cardigans, thrown effortlessly around the waist. .
As for accessories, the forecast seems to be experiencing a high season of floppy, wide-brimmed hats and funky hair wraps. (We approve.) And with that, Coachella round one has come to an end. As we spend the next few days nursing our post-Coachella withdrawals, click through the gallery here for all the fashion inspiration to last us until we can live it all over again.
