Metallic hot pants, logo laden accessories, designer sunnies, and stiletto sandals (best advised for the afterparties, not the actual festival) were some of the festival’s most pervasive trends. And who better to model the new wave of festival dressing than celebrities, on their Instagram feeds, of course.
No doubt, Rihanna, fresh off the success of her latest Fenty collection, and decked out in all Gucci everything proved that all that glitters is platinum, taking home the trophy for most show-stopping look. But supermodel Coco Rocha, DJ Mia Moretti, Katy Perry, and Rita Ora helped bring Jeremy Scott’s Moschino Candy Crush collaboration to the fore of the festival. After all, Los Angeles-based Scott tells The Hollywood Reporter he is a “Coachella pioneer,” so the festival felt right to celebrate the collection with a party sponsored by Moschino, Candy Crush and Tidal.
Black at Coachella? You bet. And although most festival goers can’t afford a Saint Laurent blazer (to be worn with hot pants, ’80s style) you can definitely cop the look for less. The trend takeaway is that festival dressing has been elevated to posh, with a side of rocker chic. So, let the following looks inspire you as you embark on your summer of festival fun.
