How One L.A. Squad Takes Their Coachella Looks From Day To Night

Keeping it cute 24/7

When at Coachella, abide by the Coachella rules. For one, stay hydrated. Secondly, wear something comfortable. Thirdly, make sure your outfit can conquer anything the California desert might throw your way—sandstorms, rain, heat, and chilly nights. We enlisted resident L.A. cool girl and bonafide music festival veteran Alie Layus to show us how to master Coachella style. She and her squad hit up H&M for some killer, Instagram-ready outfits that look great and transition seamlessly from day to night. Oh, and they're outfits that don't break the bank—a huge plus considering ticket prices are close to obscene. With just a little over a week left to go, it's high time to get those outfits in order. Begin here.

Pants? At Coachella? Totally. Layus and her squad opted for denim-inspired looks because hey, you're going to be in the desert. Layer on your favorite tee, crop top, or overalls and you're good to go. Don't forget the comfort-level of your shoes, though. Not all of us are pros at walking in sky-high heels and platforms like some stars here.

And into the night we go! Each member of Layus' group used the easy day-to-night trick of adding on one layer. You'd be amazed at how a denim jacket or a shiny piece of jewelry can transform a look. As for Layus? She wrapped a denim shirt around her waist for warmth, and also to nail that coveted '90s look. Everyone else put on either a hat or lightweight sweater because you never know what's going to go down in Indio.
