Coachella Outfit Ideas 2020

Coachella is all about comfortable glam, you’ve got to look good but you’re also in a desert so it has to be breathable, summery outfits. The trends show that people usually opt for bohemian cover-ups, crotched tops, denim shorts or a cute dress. We would suggest that you keep the footwear simple and carry staples instead of something that’ll only go with one look. After all, you’re going to be there for a good three days, you don’t want to pack too heavy right. So we’ve curated and broken down some looks for you to take inspiration from.

1. Sheer Dresses

Floor length sheer dresses are the way to go especially when you don’t want to worry about putting an entire look together. Keep them completely plain or with some embroidery, they’ll look great. Put on some comfy, military boots, some floppy hats and a pair of chic shades and voila you’re ready!

2. Bum Shorts And A Graphic Tee

You’re going for a music festival so a tee that is an ode to classic bands is a must. Pair a graphic tee, a camisole or just a loose top along with hot shorts and you’re ready to rage. Don’t need to be worried about where to sit or how high to jump cause the shorts have you covered. Pair it with a fanny pack and keep your essentials with you while also looking absolutely on fleek!

3. Printed Co-Ordinates

Co-ordinates have really made a bid this time for being an extremely popular trend. A skirt with a bralette or a pair of cute high waisted shorts with a matching top can all look totes on point. If you go with neon colours like these, even accessorising is a choice. 

4. Crotched Tops

Somehow crotched tops scream music festivals and especially Coachella. Pair them as a loose causal fit over a bralette or you can wear it by itself and match them with a flowy, long skirt. Put on a layered necklace, some feather earrings and you’ve got yourself a new avatar.

Again, simple and understated yet classic in so many ways, overalls can give you the perfect no-effort look. You can wear dress overalls like this one or ones with pants if you want to go down a more traditional route. Pair them with a bikini top or a cute cropped tee and you’re definitely ready to slay. Put on some chunky jewellery, armbands, and bulky rings and it’s a complete #ootd.

Boho Accessories For Coachella

The accessories make for a perfect music festival look. Flower crowns, sunnies, hats and so much more not only amp up the entire ensemble but also help protect you from the sun. And we’re all for handy fashion now, aren’t we?! So here are some accessories you can put on to take the look from basic to basically bewitching.

Bandanas are so on trend this time and for good reason. Pick out one with patterns like this or go for one with louder colours and bolder motifs, it’s completely on the way you want to style them. It’ll cover your head from too much heat, not let your hair get too greasy and it looks cute; the way I see it, it’s a win-win.

Bedazzled Waist-Band

These accessories seem to be very trendy at Coachella this time. These bedazzled waistbands look great over skirts and shorts alike and just give your ensemble an extra oomph. Go for a mermaid eye and face look to match these holographic beads to the rest of your attire.

Layered Necklace

Most music festival outfits have a plunging neckline as you must have noticed. So to make your neckline look stunning it’s necessary to accessorise. A set of bohemian, gold or silver, coin jewellery would look great. Pair it with studs and a fun ensemble, and we’re sure you’ll look like a freakin’ kweeennn!

Selena Gomez brought retro fashion back at the festival dressed in a blue, floral dress with a matching scarf and wristband. She paired it with trendy, tiny sunglasses and kept the look casual and low-key. We love that she wore white sneakers with it, cause with all the dancing and jumping, you’re going to need as much comfort as you can get.
