Festival season is officially upon us. With the first weekend of Coachella just seven days away, it’s time to start planning the perfect wardrobe to bring along for the festival.
Over the past couple of years, festival fashion has become almost as important as the music itself. Attendees pay close attention to detail in order to curate the most flawless looks (because everyone wants to be featured on a street style blog and post the best FOMO-inducing Instagram shot, obviously). While the bohemian look has pretty much become a festival staple—especially at Coachella—it’s starting to feel a bit overdone. You don’t have to dress like everyone else in order to stand out.
To help you with your packing dilemmas, we came up with five foolproof outfits that are bound to get you on a best-dressed list—all while shying away from the typical peasant blouse and intarsia prints we’re used to seeing. These looks are guaranteed to satisfy all your style and weather needs, from the sweltering desert days to chillier nights.
