Coachella Dreaming


Sun, Style, Desert Sand, Sweet Euphonics and Melodic Memories...The music festival season begins with the most popular and trendy, Coachella. Whilst most people attend for the entertainment, celebrities and fashionistas go out of their way to dress for the occasion in 'free spirited, hippie chic, anything goes, festival-appropriate clothes'. These looks are seeped in bohemian tones with floaty printed dresses, edged with fringing, crochet and lace, and topped off with fedoras, cowboy boots and Daisy Dukes. I have personally never dabbled in festival wear, but with some editing and fine tuning, I think boho doesn't necessarily have to look hobo. This is my style inspiration guide on dressing (elegantly) for Coachella, or any other music festival.


 Coachella Celebrity Style
Emmy Rossum and Nina Dobrev attended the festival in printed maxi looks, whilst Vanessa Hudgens opted for a paisley printed romper with leather ankle boots. Selena Gomez went sheer in a white crochet dress.


Free People Festival Wear
These are some fantastic festival worthy looks I found via Free People


These celebrities bring black and white to life with a bohemian chic spin.


H&M Festival Wardrobe
These are my Coachella inspired picks from H&M



Denim cut-off shorts are the ultimate music festival must, seen on Camilla Belle, Hannah Simone & Julianne Hough.

Nasty Gal Festival Looks
Nasty Gal have a wondrous range of bohemian pieces to inspire your entire summer wardrobe. I love the kimonos, lace dresses and patterned jumpsuits. You can shop these looks here. Click the image for a larger view.


ASOS Festival Hair Styles
No festival outfit would be complete without a complimentary hairstyle and ASOS feature some beautiful hairbands, hats, clips, floral crowns and fascinators to put the finishing touches to your Coachella look. 


Are You Inspired to Try Coachella Style This Summer?

Ugggggh, I've been wanting to go to Coachella for FOREVER! It's so freaking expensive though...sigh. One day...
Anyway, for now I'll just drool over everyone else's authentic Coachella outfits while I continue faking my own boho versions at home...

To tell the truth, I haven't heard about this music and arts festival, untill you didn't tell us about it:) I personally prefer something more elegant, but at the same time I can imagine how many professional designers were working hardly to create those attires:) So it's definitely great and original variant of casual dress. Thank You for sharing such a nice post, Sam!
Wish you a blessed day ahead!

Mingaile Tarpy said...

I love these festival, bohemian outfits. There is not a single one that I don't like! I can't remember if I responded to you regarding retinol in my reviewed Celebrity Skin Retinol moisturiser post, but, anyway, I figured out that the product with 'retinol' in the title doesn't contain any retinol in it and it just emphasises the importance of checking the labels carefully before buying stuff. I got that moisturiser for free, but the only reason I picked it was because it had retinol in it or so I thought.. Apparently, it doesn't :)

Hi Sam! Id love to try the "Coachella" style for sure this summer! Actually, I love this festival just for the fashion there, always enjoy the looks and every years Alessandra Ambrosio is one of my ever favs! This time, I also like Vanessa Hudgens and Laura Whitmore. Btw, the H&M finds are all super cool and I also like the Asos headbands, need one too! Kisses xo

Tany said...

Hello Sam, hope you're doing well, sweetie!
Like you, I've never worn this style consistently (I did wear cut out jeans and t-shirts, mainly while on vacation and going to the beach, but I don't think it counts), but I enjoy seeing it on others and who knows I'll take a go on it in the future? I really enjoyed the Free People Festival Wear selection, exceptional IMO.
Many hugs,
Tany et La Mode

Daniella said...

Hi Sweetie, thank you for your comment on todays new blogpost! Even though I am not usually a fan of festival style (I can find it a little to predictable) this post certainly is the exception! You have chosen some great looks, my favourite is Kate Bosworth's, she has managed to look edgy and chic :)

Take care,
Daniella xox

I always love seeing festival looks, especially this year though as I'm going to a festival in the UK! So excited for the music, and I guess the fashion side as well will be an experience...

Love this post! I did one Coachella inspired look and I chose that very same fringe bag from H&M - it is the perfect accessory! I love the free-spirited festival style - my favorite is Jourdan dunn's look - I like it when there is a touch of hippie, but not overtly so.

Hope your week is going well!

I love the Coachella looks but I don't dress like that. Now that I look at it I ask myself why!! Let's see maybe I'll do it this summer. Vanessa H. and Selena G. are totally my favorites!! Omg Sam you don't get H&M in SA!! How is that possible? Everyone should have it!!! I had nothing to wear without H&M ;-).
I don't think they are going to restock it. They have a strange way to handle their "collections" like the CC or the designer collab. My sister hoped they would (she wanted that belt) but noooo. Bad luck :D

Its my dream to go to Coachella, I think its really cool to party in the desert, wear something that you don't usually wear, let your hair down, enjoy and don't take life seriously. Adore all these festival looks they are also perfect to wear for summer and holidays on the beach, love Vanessa Hudgens, Kate Bosworth and Laura Whitmore. Have a great Holy Week Sam! xo

Peet said...

:D Yes, boho doesn't have to be hobo inspired. Some of the people just seem to throw over themselves everything that they have in their closets, it's crazy. They're crazy, at least they can quickly look like that...:) But what 'bothers' me the most about festival wear (which I'm not a dabbler of myself either) is that all these chicks look the same. And that's boring. Which is far worse than crazy.
