‘Tis the season for music festivals! …And time to let your fashion flag fly high starting with Coachella 2014. So what to pack? Your practical side says, comfortable sandals or boots, cute dresses and sunglasses are obvi. But why just listen to practicality? Coachella is the perfect time to turn up the fashion heat. Here are a few off the beaten path trends we can’t wait to sport at the Coachella Fashion Show, er, Music Festival.
1. Makeup and Mani Mania
If there were a time to experiment, Coachella is it. Wanna try marigold under eyeliner? Do it. Feeling like glow in the dark is your jam? Lacquer it on. Abstract or geometric shapes float your boat? Go ahead. Let out your inner artist.
2. Skin Baring Fashion to Beat the Heat
Bustiers and crop tops keep you looking (and feeling) cool in the 100-degree weather. Off the shoulder and cut out dresses easily take you from rockin’ out at the polo fields to playing games at the Neon Carnival.
3. Flower & Neon Power
Leave your grandma’s pearls at home and go for ooh and aah-inspiring accessories. Recently, Alessandra Ambrosio has been sporting flowers in her hair–it’s the ultimate look to steal for Coachella. Colorful, layered bracelets and necklaces will even make your plain white tee look Coachella glam.
