Coachella Fashion - Your Guide to 2013 Styles and Trends

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

As music enthusiasts everywhere gear up to brave the Inland Empire's heat to see their favorite bands and artists perform, attire is sure to be on the forefront of the minds of many festival-goers. Here are some suggestions for how to dress (and stay fashionable) for the temperamental SoCal weather:

1. Layer it on.

When the sun goes down in the desert, temperatures drop. Be prepared for any weather by layering your wardrobe. Make the practical look chic by mismatching textures, patterns, and colors-the oh-so-boho vibe is sure to turn heads at the concert.

Levi's Authentic Trucker Jacket ($98) is a classic. Its lightweight cotton material makes it perfect for layering. We like it in the light destructed finish paired with a flowy dress or over a plain white t-shirt with a pair of colorful shorts.

2. Don't be afraid of color. Add contrast to the desert hues by throwing a pop of color in your outfit. This season, we like bold-but-beachy colors, like turquoise, coral, and mint.

Levi's Men's 511™ Slim Fit Commuter Shorts in Oil Blue ($64) are the perfect way to brighten up any outfit. The performance stretch fabric is comfortable and water resistant.

You can't go wrong with a Gap T-Shirt. The Women's Colorblock Slub Baseball Version ($22.95)is extra soft and slouchy, perfect for ultimate comfort and style. Pair the fire coral-colored shirt with cutoff denim shorts and comfy boots for a chic casual look.

Add an unexpected pop of color to your outfit with these Marc by Marc Jacobs Retro Aviator Sunglasses in Turquoise ($110). The brown and blue hues pair perfectly with any getup.

3. Maximize comfort.

When picking an outfit, don't forget that you'll be standing for most of the day. Opting for flowy, lose fabrics and flat shoes are great ways to look great while staying cool and comfy.

Gap's Lived In Wash Patch Pocket Shirt ($46.95) looks great, and it won't have you fidgeting. Opt for this comfy and worn-in version of a button-up instead of a slim fit version.

This Flynn Skye for Free People Nautical Stripe Maxi ($168) is perfect for warm days and cool nights. The flowy fabric gives you plenty of room for movement.

Seychelles' Give Your Heart Away Boots ($97.99) are made for walking. The leather and fabric boot will protect your feet, but they're comfy enough to dance in.
