Coachella 101

What is Coachella? What’s the hype?

Coachella is an annual three-day, two-weekend music festival held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Calif. It’s just a little southeast from Los Angeles, where famous models and celebs alike can be seen taking in the music and rocking the best “boho chic” styles.

Here are some of the best looks from this year’s Coachella:

Music Festival Must-haves

(To achieve that celeb head-turning style

1.    Body Jewelry – Whether it be the ever so popular flash tattoos or a sexy body chain.

2.    Vintage Jewelry – Rings, earrings, and necklaces with feathers, gemstones, and more

3.    High Waisted – Whether that be your shorts, your shirt, or your boho style pants, let everything be high waisted!

4.    Crop Tops – They are perfect for the California sun and look cute, too

5.    Patterned Everything – You can’t achieve that hippie couture look without some sort of paisley retro printed piece

6.    Jeans – If you’re going to wear jeans, make sure they’re ripped or distressed. You can’t achieve that 70’s look without a little wear and tear

7.    Shoes – Either a cowboy style boot, an over-the-knee boot, or a tall pair of gladiator sandals. You’re shoes will help complete your look

8.    Fringe – You can’t be music fest ready if you don’t have something with fringe. A fringe purse or bag is always the easiest way to go

9.    Head Accessories – If you don’t have something on your head, you’re not doing music fest style the right way. This can either be a head chain, a floppy hat, a braid or a flower crown

10. Sunglasses – Any sort of hipster style sunglasses will do the trick, but in my opinion, round is where it’s at
