After a weekend spent in Coachella Valley, you know that you have had the time of your life. It is a place full of great music and incredible art pieces, while we have certainly noticed all the incredible looks that were worn out to the Coachella Festival. Literally an all American event that has been rated over 4.5 stars through 135 Google reviews online, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is that annual event we have all been waiting for. It is held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, literally within the Inland Empire’s Coachella Valley in the Colorado Desert.
The annual music festival is known for attracting big names in the world of music. It is also known for attracting some of the most interesting guests around. After all, how many places can you think of where you can dance shoulder to shoulder with Jordan Dunn to Kate Bosworth, Gigi Hadid or Daisy Lowe? Celebrities and supermodels do end up gracing the grounds of the festival that all the regular individuals attend as well, meaning that a picture of Cody Simpson and Gigi Hadid over a cool place mat on the ground stating H&M loves Coachella is a regular occurrence.
There are many style inspirations to be taken from the festival as well. With the first weekend over, we have seen the coolest gingham patterns on shirtdresses that are belted with a thin piece of sating, worn over a tank top or merely showing off the lingerie underneath. Add fun glasses, flats and a double handle handbag to the mix and you have the Daisy Lowe look down to the tee. If you opt for a full-length summer dress with is backless and with a plunging neckline, kept up with a halter and strings criss-crossing at the back, perhaps in a pastel pink color with lacy addition along the hem, you are essentially pulling off the Alessandra Ambrosio look.
In general, we saw a whole lot of the bohemian spirit intact, as fully expected. Frayed jean cut offs, gauzy tops, fringes accessories and handbags, floppy hats from long ago that have made it back into the latest trends, and pretty trippy prints that probably had the cannabis lovers mesmerized appeared at the event in full force. The more bare skin was shown apparently, the better. Good thing the weather is much nicer down there for in most parts of the world, baring any bit of skin might have been a little hard to do. It appears as if vintage scores have been wiped clean from months ago and the retailers that caught on in time have sold out of the awesome festival wear that was available at multiple price points in a great range and was perfect for those who waited up until the last minute to figure out their dress code of choice.
We saw lacy crop tops and pretty skirts, mini dresses and gorgeous rompers. There were high waist button down skirts and mighty distressed tops and shorts. Perhaps our very favourites were those lacy dresses with the keyhole openings on the chest. Plunging necklines are totally in so it was a given that we would see that, but what astonished us most was the amount of fringe all over the place. They came on skirts and on shorts and everything else. Large brimmed hats or brimmed hats in general were huge as the sun beat down from overhead, while the jewellery was in tribal style or ancient wealth. Twin sets are totally in and we saw a whole lot of that as well, though some of those shorts appeared to be a little too micro for our tastes. Open midriffs were what everyone seemed to be sporting though and the kimonos had us smiling at the beauty they brought to any outfit. All in all, we were positively inspired by the 2015 Coachella Festival fashion statements!
