STREET STYLE: COACHELLA
you ready to ditch the daisy chains?
Glastonbury means rubber wellies, micro jean shorts, and a chunky knit jumper. Bonnaroo’s more Kurt Cobain, with a paint-splattered white t-shirt and old Chuck Taylors. And Coachella’s flower-child hair wreaths, gauzy chilled-out hippie styles, and writstful of silver and turquoise bracelets--that’s what we expected at least, given that it pretty much sums up the fashion for about the last five years. But for any of you feeling a bit tired of the faux-Woodstock look, this past weekend brought some good news: Coachella may in fact be parting ways with its bohemian rhapsody. Don’t get us wrong--a daisy chain or flowy maxi dress was never more than an arm’s-length away--but we also felt an unmistakable undercurrent of something new and different. Has the festival moved on from ’60s bohemia and into ’70s rocker? Or did the SoCal hipsters jump a couple decades to the days of Tori Spelling baseball crop-tops and white denim cut-offs? We can’t be too sure. Instead, why don’t you take a look at our favorite non-hippie looks from the festival, and let us know what you think will be next for the Indio kids.
