The Street Style-Ready Trick To Perfect Coachella Fashion

that works from day to night

Street style is now, officially, an institution. You cannot attend a music festival without seeing photographers running around, snapping photos of perfectly styled humans enjoying a perfectly curated roster of bands. Though Coachella has tightened its reins on outside photographers and their street style affairs, that fact isn't going to stop the style stars from pulling out all the stops. Just ask Virgin Gold Cult's Alie Layus. She and her squad have already picked out a weekend's worth of outfits, all of them perfect bait for the street style camera. We blame it on H&M's killer, affordable H&M Loves Coachella collection, but also Layus and her crew's effortlessly cool L.A. aesthetic. They managed to create looks that get better as the day goes on. The secret is all in the layers. See for yourself! Or, perhaps, catch 'em on Coachella's version of the Sartorialist.

Just because you're going to Coachella doesn't mean you have to rock paisley and frills. Layus and her squad opt for monochrome comfort—a perfect canvas for what's to come.
