From the hottest trends to the latest fashions Coachella is all about fringe, free floating dresses, tie dye, floral, feathers, patterns and anything hippy. Its time to break out your summer clothes and Coachella fashion is a good guide to putting your summer wardrobe together.
Some staple pieces you need in your wardrobe are cut off blue jeans shorts. Now they have cut offs come in all shapes and lengths some are short in the front and longer in the back to hide these’s problem areas. Cut off shorts can also be made from one of your favorite jeans and that way you can custom the length how you like. Your next staple piece should be fringe and fringe is on everything now. Go with shoes the have fringe details to fringe on shirts to vests and bags fringe is the limit. Fringe has been around for decades so invest in a cool piece and it will be worth your money in the end.
Next find a free-floating dress that fits your shape and this piece can go from day to night. Find a dress that is tight up top and loose down bottom. Go with a pattern, tie die or a floral dress during the daywear sandals or a wedge and at night a pair of heels. You can also add a blue jean jacket that is cropped to add a fun funky look. Next invest in a pair of ankle boots you can wear them all year long and they look good with shorts to dresses they can also be worn day to night and go with comfort. From ankle boots with heels to flats to cowboy boot to a more modern sleek ankle boot there are many to choose from so go with color and style that goes with your wardrobe.
For more cushion find shoe pads you can tape down in your shoes they add more comfort for all day wear and they’re also great in heels. If you buy your shoes from department stores always ask they are usually free. Another summer staple piece is a jumper or and jumpsuit either long or short jumpers always look good, sleek and sexy. During the day go with flats or wedges and at night add a pair of pumps red heels is always a way to spice an outfit up. Crop top have been in the trends for a while you can wear this look different ways. You can wear smaller tops with high waisted skirts, shorts or high wasted pants.
If you like this look but want more coverage and still want to keep it sexy add a see through lace short or long vest this look was a big hit at Coachella and I see it staying around. When your out in the sun you always need protection from the sun and at Coachella hats were a must. Adding hats always pull your outfit together and they protect you from all the harsh rays that make you age.
Hats make you stand out and make an outfit go from drab to fab. If you don’t think you look good in hats there are many shapes and sizes from floppy’s, fedora to trucker hats you need to find the shape that fits your face. Check out my line phoebepricedesigns.com to see what hat your favorite celebrity is wearing. From hats to accessories feathers are everywhere and this summer feathers are back bigger than ever but don’t over do it choose one piece to have that sleek boho look.
Coachella has come and gone but it’s fashion has created looks for us to talk about all year long and with these fashion tips you will be ready to create your own fashion looks. Until next year COACHELLA see you then.
It was too long ago that rap icons Nas and Jay Z were at each other throats having one the best rap battles in history. As hip-hop head like myself was drooling all over the situation with the legendary rappers because they were getting at each other not with fists but with their minds and us as fans we were loving it. But life goes on, people get older, people have kids, people get married, and a once heated beef between legendary rap icons, Jay Z and Nas, can be squashed in order to have peace. For hip-hop fans like us, we are grateful that these two can show respect with one another and have harmony between them. They showed that respect for one another again last night at Coachella when Nas was performing, Jay Z surprisingly showed up mid-set to perform with him.
It was so awesome to see the best MCs still in the game performing together and it looked like they were having fun! Just like the Pope.
It wasn’t too long ago that you could get a selfie with the Pope, but it’s all about the future
It’s all about Peace and Love…
Coachella, Oasis For Douchebags and Trust Fund Babies. What a great line for Anti-Coachella fans. I wasn’t planning to go this year but an opportunity presented itself plus I had just to see Outkast but I totally agree with this article. Coachella used to be all about the music but know it’s just a fucked up version of a wannabe Woodstock. Please read this great article and if you don’t agree with a couple of the ideas presented by this article then you are probably one of those entitled douchebags that ruin it every year.
Originally posted on A chronicle of a Canadian living in New York City:
Each year, as the Ides of April approaches, a deluge of douchebags, trust fund babies, and payment plan-enticed artistes join a gaggle of celebs in donning wacky, barely-there duds (think: Dazed and Confused on MDMA) and head out to the desert of Indio, California, for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. What was initially intended to be a celebration of music has degenerated into a weird marriage of fashion and commerce.
This year’s edition is spread out over a pair of weekends—April 11-13 & 18-20—and features headlining acts: Outkast, Muse, and Arcade Fire. But the music, these days, is really more of a backdrop when it comes to Coachella. It’s about the scene and being seen.
But more on that later. To fully wrap your head around this behemoth, let’s take a walk down…

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival (commonly known simply as Coachella or the Coachella Festival) is an annual two-weekend, three-day music and arts festival held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, located in the Inland Empire’s Coachella Valley in the Colorado Desert. It was founded by Paul Tollett in 1999 and is organized by Goldenvoice, a subsidiary of AEG Live. The event features many genres of music, including rock, indie, hip hop, and electronic dance music, as well as art installations andsculptures. Across the grounds, several stages continuously host live music. The main stages are: Coachella Stage, Outdoor Theatre, Gobi Tent, Mojave Tent, and the Sahara Tent; a smaller Oasis Dome was used in 2006 and 2011, while a new Yuma stage was introduced in 2013.
The festival’s origins trace back to a 1993 concert that Pearl Jam performed at the Empire Polo Club while boycotting venues controlled by Ticketmaster. The show validated the site’s viability for hosting large events, leading to the inaugural Coachella Festival being held in October 1999 over two days. After a sojourn in 2000, the festival returned on an annual basis, beginning in April 2001 as a single-day event before reverting to the two-day format in 2002. The festival was expanded to a third day in 2007 and eventually a second weekend in 2012. Organizers began permitting spectators to camp on the grounds in 2003.
