Festival Fashion: How To Slay Coachella Outfits This Year
by Sidney Burds
Ditch the flower crown and be the queen of Coachella outfits this year with these killer, unique festival looks.
Like all good things that come to an end, so must the Coachella flower crown. It’s cute, and when made from fresh florals it can be fragrant, but it’s been done time and time again so it’s time to say goodbye. Elevate your festival fashion instead this year with unique Coachella outfits that don’t go unnoticed.
1. Coachella Outfits: Easy Breezy
Keep cool in the summer heat with a light-weight cotton sundress. It’s an easy breezy Coachella outfit go-to that will feel light and airy as the sun beats down. We loved the intricate hand embroidery details of this red chambray dress, and we paired it with some baby blue Vans for easy walking from stage to stage. Protect your skin with a stylish straw visor, accessorize with some stackable rings, and easily find your festival necessities in this straw woven wristlet. This festival look will have you comfortable and covered from sun up to sun down.
2. Coachella Outfits: Jumpsuit Jams
If you’re ever worried about putting a whole look together, try opting for a one-piece. It keeps you looking refined and put together—plus when things get windy you’re completely covered (unlike when sporting a dress). We adore this vertically striped jumpsuit for one of our Coachella outfits because it elongates your legs, the white fabric won’t attract the sun like black will, and it’s a flared crop hem that’s not only in style but will keep you cool, unlike a skin-tight pant. Add in a great wide-brim hat with gorgeous vintage french ribbon trim like this Lack of Color one, boho jewelry, and Western boots that are made for walking, and you’ve achieved Coachella chic.

3. Coachella Outfits: Glam Bohemian
So black is your go-to wardrobe color? We get it, but it gets hot in the sun. If you refuse to divert from your dark color obsession, try wearing something with less coverage like this off-the-shoulder romper. It’s a loose rayon fabric with a fun, flared, pom pom sleeve trim for a timeless bohemian look. Give added glam (and a pop of color) with a velvet turban headband, sparkly statement earrings, and round sunnies. Finish the look with some snakeskin slides and oh, don’t forget to apply sunscreen.

4. Coachella Outfits: Festival Veteran
So you’ve been to a couple music festivals and you’ve felt the hardships they can bring. Blisters, sunburns, dehydration, and chafing are all major threats when spending hours on end jamming out in the Coachella sun. You can still look stylish and stay comfortable with any of the Coachella outfits in this guide, and another fashionable option is the tried-and-true denim cut-offs with a psychedelic tee. It’s both comfortable and cool as hell.
