Top 5 Coachella Fashion Essentials

| Fashion, Travel

It’s that time of year again! And I’m not just talking about the start of longer days, beautiful weather, and lots of sunshine — I’m talking about the start of festival season! And unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard of Coachella, the music and arts festival held in Indio, California every April for two consecutive weekends. Not only are some of today’s top musicians and artists performing this year, some of the hottest spring and summer fashion trends will be seen and honestly, I can’t wait!

Check out some of this year’s fashion must-haves for the festival below.

CK Bodysuit

This CK bodysuit from PacSun is effortlessly sexy!

I cannot tell you guys enough how much I absolutely LOVE my CK bodysuit by PacSun. Bodysuits are great for festivals because they’re sexy, effortless, and versatile! You can throw on a pair of high-waisted shorts or a maxi skirt over it and you’ve got that perfect laid back, effortless it-girl look in seconds. This bodysuit won’t break the bank, either; it’s only $39.00!

Even though it can get pretty hot during the day, an over-sized, denim jacket is perfect for throwing on when the sun goes down. I LOVE my Levi’s jacket! I never go to a festival without it.

Short, Short, Shorts

I live in my Levi’s during the day all weekend at festivals!

There’s something so carefree, summery, and free-spirited about short shorts. Plus, in the desert heat, sometimes you want to cover up as little as possible! I swear by my trusty Levi’s for festivals. They’re so classic and iconic! Just make sure to wear a top with a little more coverage so it balances out what little fabric you’re wearing on bottom.


The lavender color, ruffled top, and high waisted bottoms are SO on trend for Coachella.

I always bring a statement swimsuit with me to Coachella. You can wear it under your clothes, or even keep it in your purse for those spur-of-the-moment pool parties out there!

While strappy sandals might seem like the best option for a festival like Coachella, I highly recommend keeping the sandals for pool parties and wearing boots while on the festival grounds. I’m really digging these amazing Jeffrey Campbell embellished boots for this year’s festival! Grab them here.

Seriously, bodysuits are one of my favorite things to wear at festivals! So easy and chic!

Simple braids and waves give off that coveted bohemian vibe everyone’s looking to get.

You can never go wrong with florals in the desert!

These two are so chic! Inspiration for days!
