Did your Coachella ticket get lost in the post again? Mine too.
It’s like being left out of the most exciting party that all of your friends keep instagram-ing and tweeting about (there’s even a dedicated selfie zone).
It’s hard to believe there’s time for any music at all what with all the street-style images popping up and celebs from Beyonce and Kendall Jenner to Cara Delevingine pictured having a good time at parties.
If your weekend was more Couch-ella than anything else, then don’t worry.The festival season is still in its infancy and there’s the likes of Field Day, Lovebox, Reading and Glastonbury to come on our shores. So, use our top fashion tips from Coachella to create the perfect festival wardrobe this summer.
If you don’t have anything planned, then, with a bit of tinkering, these looks could also be suitable for casual Fridays or, failing that, lounging in the park.
Meanwhile, if you’re still experiencing a bit of Coachella FOMO, there’s always the second weekend of the festival, which starts this Friday.
1. Crop top + skater skirt
Crop tops are the trend that just won’t go away. If you’re afraid, then team with a high-waisted skirt to minimise the amount of tummy on show.
2. The vintage kimono
So you’ve exhausted your spring coat and it’s not quite wet enough for a Pac-a-Mac. Step forward the kimono, the perfect cover up when your DIY cut-off shorts are a little more Miley Cyrus than you expected.
3. Novelty prints
It’s now acceptable to wear your favourite fruits, characters, even body parts on clothing. I’ve even spotted a pineapple bag.
4. Hi tops
Festivals really are the place for all of those bright, retro trainers that are around at the moment. You never know what you’ll be stepping in and flip flops just won’t cut it.
5. The midi dress
Who says that you have to wear a floral crown and fringed waistcoat just because you’re at a festival? Stick to a floral midi if you want a simple outfit solution that allows more time for dancing and less for outfit-planning.
6. Quirky sunglasses
Wear your heart on your sleeve or at least across your eyes with all manner of unusual frames.
7. Slogan tees
Hunt for a vintage style in a charity shop or a replica from Urban Outfitters, if you’re pressed for time.
8. Tropical prints
What’s not to love about model and DJ, Harley Viera-Newton’s, outfit? Tropical two-piece, candy-coloured shades and minuscule bag.
9. Cut-out dresses
A strategically placed cut-out doesn’t have to be scary. This paisley dress would be the perfect addition for any summer wardrobe.
10. Crochet lace
You can’t beat a bit of handicraft on the festival circuit – these two revellers look perfectly coordinated while taking their selfies.
