Music FESTIVAL FRESH. What to wear to Coachella & other festivals this year

Babes we are excited for Coachella/music festival season?

It's SO CLOSE and I know friends are on their diets and prepping like good little hotties for the best weekend of the year.

Although I'm not going this year (weddings and bachelorettes galore!) I feel like understanding the Coachella/music festival fashion, is something I'm vetted in after a few years going. If you're not doing Coachella, that's A-okay, because there are so many festivals near you! A day pass is money, get in and get out and your feet/wallet with thank you. 

For a guide to festival's I recommend Pitchfork's Guide. It's super detailed and you can find whatever you are looking for.

I had a few years where I was basically obsessed, and made my rounds to a few:

Coachella in Indio

Lollapalooza in Chicago

Made in America in Philly

Tomorrow World in Atlanta

Mad Decent Block Party in Brooklyn and Cape Town

Pitchfork in Chicago

Austin City Limits in Austin

Bestival in Toronto

Governors Ball in NYC

It's not really bragging when you realize how much money I probably spent. Also, I didn't really have a life. 

Anyway, back to what to wear on your face, feet and body. Make-up, clothes, shoes bags and all. 

There's also some major trends to respect and look out for when you go.

So, this little trends list is all you need for any music festival you attend this summer!


This year there will be some MAJOR trends to watch out for:

First, embroidery

What I'm wearing in this post, one of my favorite trends for the moment. This dress from Free People, is soft, flow-y, comfortable and light. It's unique and different, plus there is a lot of attention to detail. An old woman stopped me on the street to compliment my dress, LOL. Love her. I wore it with cheap Forever 21 Sandals, because honestly your shoes will be ruined. These are so comfortable and cute. 



Other trends to rock:

White Nails

So clean. Makes your fingers look cute and tan, and just fresh. 

Fringe

 Fringe shirts, shorts and bags are SO CUTE. Just don't wear it all together, kay?

Jean Shorts that aren't up your ass

Guilty of this trend. Truly. I wear my shorts high to hold in the gut. BUT, it's coming out of style having your butt cheeks out, the teens caught on to this trend and it got WEIRD. Love the boyfriend jean shorts from Rag & Bone.

Bandanas

Refinery29 describes how to wear the trend here, but the best ways via photo are below:

Β 

See through lace

So hot. Period. For Love and Lemons is my spirit animal for clothing brands (I own one thing from them and mostly just admire from afar LOL. 

Comfortable, airy dresses

All about moving and shaking, these dresses let you be FREE.

SPF

I'm serious. It's not cool to be tanning your skin. (High school Krista was so guilty of this, it hurts). Wearing sunscreen in the desert IS SO KEY. Get a spray tan (ask me for places if you want to get sprayed) or wear self tanner, and LATHER UP. 

Septum rings

These are dope, especially if you have a cute little button nose or cute nose in general. If you wear it, ROCK IT, no excuses. Obviously they have fake ones you clip in, no need to pierce.

Gemstone jewelry

I have a post about this, but all of the yes. Necklaces, rings, earrings. All of it is amazing.

Body chains

I like body chains, LOL. I think it's sexy and dainty and draws attention to your femininity. If you hate it, I respect your opinion too though. 

Braids

I loved this article from Refinery 29 on BRAIDS and how to rock the bad bitch braid. 

You can find my Pinterest page to also see 'lovely hairstyle inspiration'

Fresh skin and light lips

Really like link pink, or just pink enough lips for the day. I've done a full lip and it feels good, but you can get all sorts a mess and look like a tranny real quick. I know from experience, HA. Rock it with a quality foundation like I've linked here, that lasts all day. 


Where to get it:


I would do braids for most of the time, TBH. It helps with the heat and it stays PUT. Have your friends braid a pigtail SUPER TIGHT braid for at least a day. It saves so much time, energy and sometimes hair is just so freaking hot on your head. I'm all about the embroidery, lace and would do a septum ring just to try it out and be cool.

Are you going to any music festivals this year? I will probably do one but that's it. Getting a bit weird when I'm there just staring at everyone, sober. LOL. 

But realistically, I'm just buying lots of this stuff for life. So cute for weekends, casual but not too try hard.

Gotta love it.

Let me know your favorites!
