Coachella Fashion

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at U Maine chapter.

The Coachella music festival in California is a huge six stage event that attracts almost 200,000 people. That’s about 20 times the population of Orono! What started as a musical affair has quickly turned into one of the most important fashion events of the year. With tickets ranging from $700-$900, it’s not in the average college student’s budget to attend. It doesn’t stop you from taking the best of Coachella fashion trends to incorporate into your summer wardrobe, though!

1. Crochet Everythinghttp://www.polyvore.com/coachella_trends_crochet/set?id=196461642Who says only mittens and scarves can be crochet? Everywhere you turn at Coachella, you’re guaranteed to see something crochet, especially white. The H&M crochet dress from their Coachella-inspired line was hit. If an entirely woven ensemble is a bit out of your comfort zone, paring a crochet top with some classic denim is a fun way to incorporate this look.2. 70’s Fringehttp://www.polyvore.com/coachella_trends_fringe/set?id=196518130Here’s an example of Spring trends sneaking into Coachella fashion- 70’s inspired is dominating both the runways and stores and now festivals. This is a look that can be subtly integrated into your look by adding a fringed sandal or bag if you don’t feel like going all out with the fringe.3. Sheerhttp://www.polyvore.com/coachella_trends_see-through/set?id=196517955Nothing says summer festival like showing off a lot of skin. Beach cover ups as dresses? Why not? Sheer outfits are a great way to mix your look with another Coachella trend- temporary tattoos. Don’t forget the sunscreen!4. Bold Patternshttp://www.polyvore.com/coachella_trends_all_over_pattern/set?id=196518800Rompers and jumpsuits and crop top sets, oh my! Playful all over patterns are all over Coachella and maybe next, your closet. It’s a bold and fun look and a way to step outside your fashion comfort zone.
