Coachella is prime real estate for any fashionista who wants to show off their festival style, so when it comes to choosing your outfits, aesthetic is important. Even more important, however, is making sure that what you wear is going to work for the conditions.
To help you make some good life choices, we've come up with the top things you should take into consideration when it comes to festival fashion. For everything else, check out our full guide to everything Coachella!
Festival Shoes have the potential to make or break your entire experience. For instance, rocking a pair of heels in a dusty desert will probably not end well, especially if you're going to be on your feet dancing for hours.
For maximum comfort and style, opt for ankle boots. You can still achieve a boho-chic kind of look while maintaining the comfort and support that your feet are going to need after days in the desert.
Plus, enclosed shoes will not only protect you from the dust and grime, but also from enthusiastic dancers who might accidentally stomp on your feet. No thanks.
Take a moment to remember once again that Coachella is held in a dusty desert. And, with so many people jumping around, that dust is going to go everywhere.
Your lungs are one location you do not want the dust to settle. Bandanas will protect you from inhaling the dust as you walk around, so have a cheap one you can wrap around your mouth and nose in between Instagram moments.
If you're worried you'll look silly, don't. You won't be the only one, and by the end of the first day you'll have more difficulty finding someone who isn't wearing one.
If you're after easy, stylish festival wear, do not underestimate the value of a good playsuit (or three). Playsuits are the perfect choice for festival fashion both in terms of comfort and practicality.
One of the downsides of Coachella is spending long periods of time under a boiling hot sun. Playsuits are both versatile and cool, helping you to beat the heat and avoid a cringe-worthy burn.
Wear yours unbuttoned with a cute bralette for extra effect. Also consider opting for a boho pattern – think ochre tones or florals. It is Coachella, after all.
You know the rule: no hat, no play. Well, with heat like you'll cop at Coachella, a hat is definitely advised if you want to avoid the skin on your face peeling off.
Heat stroke is no joke, so every little bit of protection helps. Wide-brimmed sun hats will give you the most cover, but if a standard baseball cap or boater hat works better with your look, go for it!
All in all, as long as you've got some kind of sun protection, you'll be fine. Just don't underestimate how strong the heat is or you'll end up with a sunburn that you'll regret for a long time to come.
When deciding on your festival bag, don't go past a trusty backpack – it will be a total lifesaver when you realise just how much you want to take with you during the day.
First up, you'll need to pack a water bottle. There are water stations around the festival but, to avoid waiting in line for ages, you can simply fill your backpack with extra water bottles and keep the party going.
You'll also need to pack an extra layer of clothing. Stash a jacket or kimono in your backpack and be the envy of all your friends at night when the temperature drops.
Yes. Do not take it off. Do not pass go.
If you're the type of person who feels the cold, you might like one for the evenings.
A bandana to protect you from the dust. Your lungs will thank you.
Technically yes, but just remember how hot it's going to be. Consider shorts or a playsuit instead.
Only if you want your feet to hate you.
