My hot take on festival fashion

The ever longed for music festival held at Empire Polo Club in Indio desert has come around again this year.

From headliners like Tyler, the Creator and Doja Cat, I come to share with you my inspiration and thoughts on the outfits that are as important as the music itself.

When putting together an outfit there are multiple factors to be thought of.

When you are in the desert, the heat will make you sweat during the day but you will be shivering from the cold during night. To have layers is a must have!

No one likes sand getting blown in your face, that's why most people opt for a scarf or bandana. This also works great as a head cover for when the sun feels overwhelming.

Eye-catching outfits from 2024

Every year that proceeds, the looks get more creative. This year the aesthetic is to be bold and expressive.

The boho looks have stepped aside for the baddie energy to take over.

Last Minute Looks

This is really the right moment to grab whatever you can find in the back of your closet. As long as you are comfortable for walking miles in the sand and grass, you are good to go.

Some of the most worn shoes are cowboy boots and sandals. Do not however wear new boots at the festival, your feet will make the weekend feel like forever.

My advice is to go straight to the thrift store to find yourself a pair of cool shorts, tank top, funky hat. Wear the shoes you have at home.

Don't be shy to mix and match an outfit, this is the time, if any. Coachella is the first taste of summer we get and all colour is allowed.

Coachella Style Book

Coachella has long been a place where creative freedom is expressed in the outfit you wear.

Some of the most popular styles to be worn during the festival is; Bohemian vibes, Denim, Crochet and Lace, Fringe and Boho accessories.

Coachella style is all about embracing a carefree, bohemian aesthetic while staying comfortable and chic for a weekend of music and fun in the sun.

Every year I wait to see looks from the festival and see what funky outfits celebrities have worn.

One of the most sought for outfit to see every year is Vanessa Hudgens. She has been attending Coachella weekend for over a decade and always sets a high standard for the rest of us.
