Coachella is only a week away! If you’re headed to Indio next week, chances are you’re scrambling to find the perfect outfits (check out our suggestions) and preparing yourself with plenty of essentials on hand (the Coachella survival guide is a key reference for this).
But if one thing is for certain, it’s your tunes.
Queue up this playlist before you hit the road and sing along at the top of your lungs! It’s just practice for the real thing.
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!) Continue reading
Feeling more Spring Broke than Spring Break? For local California babes looking to chill out or Coachella-bound explorers, we suggest getting lost amid the jaw-dropping scenery in Joshua Tree. Not only does the city boast an impressive National Park (you can’t beat $20 for a 7-day vehicle permit — go ahead, invite all your friends), but the surrounding off-the-map destinations (see below) are just what the doctor ordered for creative-minded adventurers. And it’s all mere miles away from Los Angeles. Continue reading
Weekend Two of Coachella has officially come to a close. While everyone is still buzzing about Nicki Minaj’s surprise appearance during Drake’s set, we’re taking a look back at the glorious festival fashion that took place over the past two weeks. From floral maxis to super short denim cutoffs, we saw our fair share of modern day hippie couture. And let’s just say some executed the tousled hair-fringed everything combo more effortlessly than others.
We’re talking street style looks that are completely unique. It’s these outfits from the music festival scene that we’re taking inspiration from and incorporating into our spring wardrobes. We could use a dose of boho magic in our lives.
On paper, this look shouldn’t work: Jean bermuda shorts, a triangle bikini top under a suede vest, and snakeskin booties. But it’s her relaxed sort of approach that makes us want to spring for a pair of distressed boyfriend shorts for our spring wardrobes. Possessing an edgy statement necklace is next on our to-do list.

With only two full days until the festival, the Coachella gods are cutting it close, but the set times and stages have just been released for Weekend One!
We’ve filled you in on potential Coachella fashion trends, and given you inspiration with what to wear. We made a list of 10 Must-See Acts that are guaranteed to slay on stage. Your transportation is settled and your hotels are booked. Now, you just need to know the secrets to having the best festival experience ever.
Really, guys, it goes without saying but we need to say it anyway. Temperatures are expected to be in the 90s during Week One, and with all that dancing and grooving you’re going to be doing, your body needs proper hydration. There are refill stations around the fields for CamelBaks, so you might suggest someone in your squad bring one.
2. Wear comfortable shoes
There are only 23 days left until Coachella begins! We’re making a shopping list of essentials, carefully planning our outfits and combing through our iTunes library for the perfect desert playlist. If you’re not quite feeling the festival vibes yet, we’re here with inspiration. We’re taking a look back at some of our favorite fashion blogger outfits from Coachella last year and predicting what trends are going to rule the polo grounds in 2015.
From the flirty lace silhouettes to the heaps of fringe, these are the best looks you’ll want to emulate if you plan on braving the Indio heat come April.
The dry desert air, the sun beaming against the metal stage rigging, you look up into the open blue skies to nowhere land. But softly in the distance, you hear a band tuning up their guitars and the steady roar of the crowd anticipating those first notes. It may only be January, but dreams of Coachella are already floating in our heads. With the 2015 lineup announced, everyone’s buzzing with excitement. If you were lucky enough to score a pass during the hectic on sale yesterday, you should start preparing now.
In particular, you need to start listening to confirmed acts and prioritize which you want to see most. Every year, there’s bound to be a schedule conflict between two artists where you’re left thinking, “Which band do I see?!” If it comes down to that, here are ten acts* who you should just say yes to.
*We figured you already know how awesome the headliners are, so this list focuses on those artists in smaller print on the lineup.
Canadian singer Lights creates songs with booming beats and celestial synths. Drawing inspiration from video games and the sci-fi culture, Lights has released three studio albums so far and each is a dream pop masterpiece. On the stage, she’s a force to be reckoned with, alternating between keyboard jam sessions, guitar riffs, and ear-piercing vocals you’ll gladly drown in.
This month, the launch of Coachella took social media by storm! The digital world was buzzing with band excitement, celebrity sightings, and pinterest-worthy style pics! So while the weekend was heating up, Designer Studio decided to cool down with UGG Australia at their Style Haven House Party.
It was gorgeous, laid back, and a serious good time!
Designer Studio’s Lorenzo, Gaulberto, and Yvette
C’mon! This is SoCal. The party had the boards, the glorious sunshine, and it just wouldn’t be the same without some bikes!
Naturally, we had to make friends with a special local.
Fashion models Jourdan Dunn and Chloe Norgaard were also in attendance. We’re loving Jourdan’s boots with her two-piece outfit and Chloe’s signature style was a natural match for the sparkle boots!
Snow cones to beat the heat and high tech nail polish to tell you to cool down. Seriously, the nail polish changed color depending on your body heat!
The UGG Style Haven party was definitely booming with style! SoCal may be known for its flip-flop-wearing-looks, but these guys definitely bust that stereotype!
