If you’re not entirely sure what constitutes “festival style“, look no further than the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival (tip: just call it Coachella if you want to be ~in with the youth~).
Over the years, a Coachella “uniform” of sorts has emerged. Attendees, famous or not, can be found in any combination of the following: kaftans, ripped denim, double denim, boots, leotards, crochet, headscarves, flower crowns, fringed suede, swimsuits masquerading as regular clothing… you get the picture.
Over the weekend, while you were paying way too much for avo on toast at a cafe or catching up on House of Cards, the first three days of Coachella swung into action, and the celebrities were as #fashun-oriented as ever.
Taylor Swift teamed a lightning strike-printed jacket with newly-bleached hair. Never one to miss a pun opportunity, she dubbed the look “Bleachella”:
In a subsequent Instagram post, Swift made an astute observation about the evolution of Coachella style, writing: “I feel like maybe chokers are the new flower crowns?” Seems she’s onto something.
Meanwhile, Glee star Lea Michele proved just how versatile activewear really is in her Fabletics ensemble. Sing it with us now — “Going to Coachella in my activewear… ”
