Like everyone else during the month of April, we’ve got festival fever. The getting-there road trip (see our list of top stops if you’re Coachella-bound), the sunny skies, and that feeling of breaking away gets our pulse pumping.
When it comes to festival fashion, be prepared for boho-overload. We get it, fringe sashays when you walk and that’s sort of fun, but if you really want to stand out from the pack in a smart, forward-thinking kind of way, consider our picks below. (And don’t forget to brush up on our Coachella survival guide!)
Core threads are all you need for sunny escapes. Think breezy tops, classic denim, lightweight scarves, and mirrored shades.
1. Desigual top | 2. Barba Nortena hat | 3. TOMS sunglasses | 4. Desigual scarf | 5. Desigual toiletry bag | 6. Desigual sweater | 7. Lacoste sandals | 8. UGG bag | 9. Buffalo David Bitton jeans | 10. Desigual tank
With your comfort in mind, we’ve compiled a list of everything you need to take the circuit by storm. Shade your view with a branded hat or a pair of cool girl sunglasses that are sure to stand out in a sea of Wayfarers.
A cozy, long-sleeved sweater is a must for when nights get chilly. Plus, stand-out prints like this galaxy one can add a fun layer to your look when tied around your waist in the daytime.
Sure, cut-offs may seem like the trendy, sexy choice, but a rad pair of jeans are your best bet from day to night. (A skinny distressed pair goes with anything.) Top it all off with a hands-free backpack to fit all your essentials: a water bottle, sunscreen, and scarf.
You’ll be glad to have a trusty, comfortable boot when crushed toes are an all-too-real possibility among music-entranced crowds. Or let your shoes make a statement. The above Instagram-worthy espadrille by Soludos is bound to be a conversation starter.
For first-time festivalgoers, we recommend slip-on sneakers. Sometimes you’ll want to rush the stage and dance without fear of being stepped on. Other times, you’ll be truly grateful to spread out and sink your toes into the grass with ease. Lace-free = fuss-free.
The pictured UGG sandals work double-time with metallic accents that make this a cute spring-inspired slide or a party-ready choice for any day or night ensemble.
