Music Festival Style at Coachella

Coachella, Music Festival Style

Camping in the desert for three days may not be your ideal getaway, yet every April people flock to California’s Colorado Desert. As many vegans are also environmentally conscious and so lovers of the outdoors, Coachella has made it alluring for them, Californians, and those far and in-between to gather for a two-weekend-long music and arts festival. Being one of the most popular music festivals in the world, Hollywood’s stars can be found mixing and mingling with the rest, enjoying live music and art installations.  But the fashion at Coachella has become as famous as the name itself and as anticipated as the bands themselves. Call it “modern bohemian” or “edgy Western”, but rustic booties, crochet crop tops, ripped acid wash jeans, and metallic body chains seem to dominate the festival style. Don’t have the cash to shell out a couple hundred for a concert, or don’t have the time for a weekend (potentially two weekend) trip? The festival is streamed on YouTube, so get dressed in your “festival best” and invite your friends over for a backyard festival of your own!

Bodysuit Bohemian

The bodysuit has made a comeback since the 80’s and 90’s and has been trending in the fashion world. There is a love/hate relationship between the suit and society, as many who experienced it originally refuse to take a second look yet the younger generation seems to be embracing it. People love it for its ability to keep everything tucked away and in place while still showing some skin. To combat the desert heat and look sexy doing it, try pairing a black, lace bodysuit with denim shorts.

Color Play

It is only fitting that the PANTONE Fashion Color Report picked colors reminiscent of the outdoors to flood (pun intended) the fashion market this spring. As Coachella goers are enjoying themselves while completely surrounded by desert, it makes sense for their wardrobes to be inspired by the great outdoors. Mix up your outfit with colors of pale blues and pinks, evocative of the changing sky, and a vivid pop of yellow, like the flora of spring.

On the Fringes

When one thinks of the desert, one’s mind most likely goes to images from old Western movies of “the Wild West”. So of course, it’s a natural instinct to pull out those cowboy boots you splurged on but have hardly worn and layer denim on denim without making a fashion faux pas. But, while it’s fun to experiment with pieces you might not normally wear, it’s important to keep cultural appropriation in mind. No matter how many people of young Hollywood are seen donning them, headdresses, dashikis, and bindis are not fashion statements. Coachella is definitely the time to have fun playing with new looks: from fringed skirts to snakeskin belts to bold jewelry. But remember that someone else’s culture is NOT your fashion accessory.

Bandana or Bust

While people are definitely experimenting with style and taking fashion risks, many of their choices are also for utilitarian reasons.  Those durable boots are fitting for the setting, as they’re easy to maneuver in the dense sand and comfortable enough for long hours of standing. A bandana tied over one’s mouth looks trendy but keeps out the dust and sand. Pair these functional pieces with some fun ones, like this graphic tee, to remind everyone that vegans know how to have a good time too.
