It’s Coachella season! Whether you’re going to Coachella or staying in town, these four festival-inspired outfits are versatile for weekends to come. Buy-now, wear-now contemporary brands like Band of Gypsies, Buffalo, Steve Madden and Quay Australia are available at your Valley Dillard’s.
Styling your festival outfit can be anything but expected with a few updates from last season. Metallic leaf motifs and soft pastels on both sides of the headband spectrum update flower crowns. Boho sundresses become modern wide leg, culotte jumpsuits and two-piece outfits both mix and match. Fringe belts are out and belt bags are in. Plus, the love-hate choker necklace trend finally has hit its end.
Trendy accessories to mix and match with your weekend’s ensemble are the easiest things to prepare while packing for the weekend. Keep it easy, and purchase the right ones to wear now. Unpredictably large floral earrings make a bold statement with metallic flower power for rocking out from day into night.
Fringe goes onward and upward with colorful exaggerated earrings that will brighten up any boho vibe. Don’t forget to metallic-ize with the added shine of layering with easy-to-wear accessories.
Finally, look to nature and don’t forget tortoiseshell hoop earrings. Modern shapes will complement a variety of outfits in the latest trending prints. The neutral-style staple leaves you feeling for all things wild and free. The featured earring trends are a nod to a nostalgic, festival feel.
That 70’s, good-time groove is only complete with shapely sunnies. A few frames are having a fashion-forward moment. Rock bold and bright square frames for added depth and intensity to your retro look or vintage Ozzy rounds for something subtle in color, not short on style.Big, colorful frames in modern geometric shapes replace choker necklaces as a statement accessory.
If you want to go higher, Band of Gypsies is what you need to acquire. A crop-top silhouette with a bra-top feel will provide all the coverage to transition from day to night. Abstract printed top in zesty spring colors is a stylist shift far from black and much more comfortable than a bodysuit. Pair it back to coordinating high-waist paper bag shorts that work on every body type, wrap up in a belt bag, and walk this way in with your admission.
Flower crowns and fringe belts were so last Coachella. Headbands and belt bags are in for 2019 providing you with both utility and function. Hands-free and hair-back accessories will keep up with you moving and grooving all weekend long.
Finally, festival-friendly footwear includes styles for the elements. We can’t predict the weather but a trendy, clear espadrille or wood wedge for the day, and closed-toe block heel bootie or Converse sneaker for night, will keep you wandering on all day long.
