Coachella music festival style must-haves
It's almost time for the 2012 Coachella Music Festival in Indigo, California! One of the best parts about this year's festival? It's extended to two weekends instead of its usual one, which means you will need to double-up on the festival style. Find out how to look music festival-chic.
The 2012 Sjobeck spring collection is organically inspired by a palette of earth tones. Coachella is all about finding your inner style hippie, so why not indulge in Mother Nature's colors? The silk wrap pant is extremely comfortable, yet defines the effortless music festival look you'll want to encompass while belting your vocal cords out to Florence and the Machine. The cap sleeve dress is made of 100 percent silk and has a multicolored splash print that encapsulates Coachella's swirl of earthy colors. The flattering v-neck and shorter hemline keep the dress simple and young.
Make a statement
Because Coachella is all about letting your style freak flag fly, why not make a huge statement while doing so? Have fun and live a little. This fringe bandage bodycon dress (above) is sexy, daring and has the perfect bohemian touch. Get really vintage in this distressed, vintage denim jacket. It doesn't get any more indie than that. This orange peaceBomb wrap bracelet will be a visual stunner on your wrist when you're waving your hands in the air like you just don't care. And for your flitting feet? Dance in these Harvester Grain Moccasins in tan. Wear some cut-offs with them and you'll be more festival-chic than Kate Bosworth.
Because Coachella is outside and there are a ton of people everywhere, you want to carry a small, light bag with only your essentials. This Hudson fringe bag (above) is small and stylish enough to carry from one stage to the next. If you need a tighter grip and more room, this Bon Bon Bucket bag is your new best friend. If you're feeling more festive and fabulous, this jeweled clutch will make you the center of attention and style-lust.
Because Coachella is spread out quite a bit to fit in many of the bands, choosing comfortable and sensible shoes is a must. But, don't worry! We would never give you "comfortable" shoe advice without adding in a little (or a lot) of style! These neon Jeffrey Campbell sandals are bright, comfortable and flat. Perfect for long or short strolls, these TOMS slip-ons (above) are the epitome of musical festival-chic and they are ridiculously comfortable to boot.
Because certain days at Coachella can be on the warmer side, take the "less is more" approach with your clothing. While you're baring it all, distract from the insubstantial amount of clothing you might be (or might not be) wearing with a killer statement necklace. This neon Mariposa necklace will have you standing out in a feminine way. Go along with the bohemian flair and don this tribal strand necklace (above). Juice up your look with this bright mosaic necklace. You'll have style inspiration everywhere you turn, so just mix and match.
