Style | Coachella Festival Street Style

Wait. What?! You’re going to the second weekend of Coachella? Then this is me making a ugh-whatever-talk-to-the-hand face at you. How dare you not take me too?

K, now I’m over it. We can be besties again.

For all you weekend two-ers (and all of you who love looking at pretty people in the sunshine), here are a few of my favourite festival style shots from weekend one. They’ll answer your most burning question: What on earth to wear with a wristband?

Skirts and dresses with boots because a) it’s cute and b) it’s smart. How else are you supposed to keep your toes safe from that dude jumping up a storm in front of you?

Light, muted colours because all that black and grey you wear in the city has no place in the bright, shiny desert. (Peep the dude in the bottom left corner of this picture; you should def. bring him with you.)

A gigantic smile. Because you’re at Coachella for Pete’s sake.

Lipstick! Because no one can see your eye makeup behind those sunny G’s anyway.

And if the temperature starts to dip you’ll look very Coolchella in high-waisted jeans a la my favourite TV host (and one of my BFFs) Jessi Cruickshank.

And if it starts to really, really dip, you’ll be very Coldchella in an oversized men’s wool sweater, cords and boots. Could I possibly look any more un-California? I mean really. But it was hailing at one point so I had no choice but to bundle the heck up. (Stark contrast to my t-shirt-only looks of years past, huh?)

Lucky for all you weekend two-ers, it doesn’t look like you’ll have to worry about anything but the sun.

Oh, you were wondering what the trendsetting gents were wearing? Well, there’s really only one look that matters.

P.S. You’ll find more beautiful Coachella people and styles right here.

P.P.S. I’ll be sharing more photos on Facebook so like The Anthology.

    […] Do check out these four blogs: they are exciting and local. Miss 604 just added a guest post about the Northern Lights over Vancouver (lights I so cluelessly looked upon earlier tonight), and The Anthology recently posted about fashion styles at Coachella. […]

    […] The area’s beautiful too and not just in a sunshine-and-palm-trees kind of way.  These days, every ad campaign, music video and look book seems to be shot in the middle of the desert, and for good reason — the light is gorgeous, the landscape is eerily barren and the weather is usually incredible (though, as I learned from sweater-wearing experience, that’s not always the case).
