What to Wear to Coachella for 2012

on March 19th, 2012

Opening Ceremony HatCoachella will bring together some of the best musical artists this April, but it will also serve, as it has in the past, as an outdoor showroom of new trends for fashion. Instead of the typical fedora and wide-brimmed hats we saw at Coachella last year, try a floppy crochet raffia version like this one from Opening Ceremony. The less rigid structure of this type of hat will give you more freedom to see everything around you, but it will still protect against the sun. Hemp is a big fabric seen in many Coachella styles, but since you will be on your feet all day, wedges are not always the best option.

This year the flat espadrille will be the best type of shoe for you that is both fashionable and practical. The Marc by Marc Jacobs Flat Espadrilles are supportive, comfortable, and cuter than plain sneakers – perfect for walking around all day from tent to tent.

When it comes to fashion at Coachella, the easier the outfit, the better. That’s why we like the Indah Taylor Romper. It’s light and airy, perfect for the hot weather. It’s simple to throw on, but still has shorts so you don’t have to worry about how you’re sitting when you take a break to relax on the ground.

have a fun geometric twist on the typical cat eye sunglasses. They come with a drawstring pouch, but at $30, you won’t be horribly upset if you lose them at one point during the festival.

In the hot heat with crowds of people, the last thing you will want to do is lug around a giant bag. So keep it simple with a cosmetic case that can double as a wristlet for the day. The Diane von Furstenberg Vintage Collection Travel Cosmetic Bag is the perfect one. The size is big enough to hold all of the essentials – phone, wallet, sunblock, lip balm, and your sunglasses, but it’s small enough to not weigh you down. The blue leafy print will look chic against all of your outfits that weekend and the removable wrist strap makes it a great way to know it will be on you at all times.

Because it will be so hot at Coachella, wearing both a bra and a top can make you sweaty and uncomfortable. A cropped bra top will give you enough support with built-in bra features but can double as a top. The sheer mesh material of this VPL Cropper Bra Top will keep you cool and ventilated.

Eugenia Kim Chiara Turban Headband The final recommendation for Coachella next month is a cotton or jersey turban headband instead of the braided headbands we saw so much at last year’s event. This Eugenia Kim Chiara Turban Headband is lightweight but will still keep your hair out of your face and your head much cooler. Not only this, but it comes in a hot pattern made up of black, taupe, and brown, making it a versatile necessity for your Coachella gear.
