When we think of Coachella street style, the first thing that pops into our minds is the typical (though, extremely well-curated) bohemian festival wear, complete with body chains, flower crowns, and a ton of eyelets and paisleys. However, over the weekend, we saw a change in what the best-dressed attendees opted to wear to this year’s event.
Shying away from the overdone styles we’re used to seeing, the festival’s most fashion-forward ladies—from those who performed onstage to some of our favorite actresses, bloggers, and models, elected to go for more unique looks. Some channeled some serious tough-girl rocker looks (ripped jeans, fringed leather, and combat boots) while others rocked some really wild and eye-catching boho prints.
There was also a rainbow of inspiring beauty looks. For hair, we saw everything from candy-colored shades of pink and blue to super voluminous, ’70s-inpired looks. While many festivalgoers opted to keep their makeup to a bare minimum (the only way to survive the sweltering heat), some were brave enough to sport bold, bright lips—and even, bedazzled eyes.
Overall, each look was far from the expected and ordinary. Click through the gallery below to check out the best-dressed ladies at Coachella’s first weekend.
