The first leg of the music festival Coachella begins today, which sees the likes of Beyoncé, The Weeknd and Eminem take the stage in California.
It is probably America’s biggest and best-known festival, and it couldn’t be further from the days of Oxegen. Instead of wading through mud to find your tent, Coachella-goers frolic in the sunshine wearing carefully curated outfits.
There is an instantly recognisable ‘look’ for Coachella. Here are seven of trends that you will definitely see ladies wearing on your feed this weekend.
1. Flower Crown
Flower crowns are probably the most instantly recognisable piece of festival wear. While we all love a nice bouquet, we hope this year that people come up with something new and different to wear.
OK, we can actually understand why this trend is so ubiquitous – braids are a great way to still look cute when you haven’t had a chance to wash your hair... in three days.
3. Crochet crop tops
This is a festival, so obviously most people have packed a few crop tops to wear. However, the top that everyone will undoubtedly have at Coachella will be crocheted – mark our words.
4. Multi-coloured hair
Festivals are a time to be footloose and fancy-free so undoubtedly a lot of ladies (and gents) will use the time to experiment with their hair. Expect to see a lot of wacky coloured locks (most likely washable, so they don’t have to go to work next week with purple hair.)
Kylie Jenner has been at the forefront of this trend for the past few years, modelling everything from rainbow hair to a bright yellow do.
5. Cultural appropriation
From bindis to Native American headdresses, there’s always a few people that miss the memo that no matter how cute you look – cultural appropriation just isn’t cool.
It's Coachella season again, so I'm mentally preparing myself for cultural appropriation and overly editied, but identical photos on my feed pic.twitter.com/i5BJ4TjvAA— Jordan Chapman (@jordan_taylorc) 10 April 2018
6. Anything and everything fringed
Bags, tops, dresses, shorts – if it can have a fringe on it, you will see it at Coachella.
7. Fake tattoos
Festival fashion isn’t exactly known for being low-key, and every year the festival is a sea of sparkles and glitter. This manifests as glittery silver and gold temporary tattoos all over people’s bodies.
