The Coachella festival kicked off the festival season this weekend, and as usual it was a feast of fantastic rock chick style. Coachella is the festival that allows fashion to fly, taking place in the Californian desert, in glorious soaring temperatures, there is no need to dig out those wellies and pac-a-macs for this festival. Denim hotpants, cute mini dresses and toe-post Havaianis are all part of the wardrobe, as are maxi dresses = safe in the knowledge you will not be swishing these through mud soaked fields.
Here are my picks of this years Coachella style.
I am a huge fan of Dita’s retro styling, and think she looks amazing in this Pucci styled dress. She has ditched her trademark heels, but the lack of mud means she can get away with an espadrille wedge shoe. So glamorous.
I love Chanel Iman’s relaxed , yet glamorous look. The nude shades are perfect for her skin tone, and the 1970s floppy hat gives this a Bianca Jagger vibe. Again this is made for Coachella, don’t attempt this at Glasto as mud splattered nude shades just look crusty!
Kelly Osbourne is one of my favourite style icons at the moment, and again she has gone for a retro feel in this cute polka dot dress. I love how she toughens up the look with her leather biker jacket. Great hair too.
I love how Alexa Chung keeps this look simple, clean and elegant. The little dress, simple sandals and boho accessories make this the perfect festival style for this year, next year or any other year.
Maxi dresses are still a huge trend for the Summer. Kate Bosworth and Jamie Lyn Sigler both looked cool and stylish in their maxi dresses, with Kate wearing a midi length dress whilst Jamie wears a printed full length effort. Top marks for both.
Just love Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson’s laid back separates. This well dressed couple never look as if they are trying too hard, and always get it right. Diane’s hat is a must have for keeping the hot Summer sun off your head, and is perfect for the beach as well as for festivals.
