Hot Trends From Coachella 2016
The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is an annual 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. This year Weekend one was from the 15th-17th April and Coachella is an exciting place to see some very cool new fashion trends. They were a number of trends that stood out this year, check out some of the hot trends from Coachella 2016 that we just love!
The Coachella festival is deep in the heart of the arid Colorado desert. Not letting your hair go all frizzy and getting dust in your hair is also a concern. The Bandana is has been used in a practical way as well as an accessory to style your outfit. People were seen using it to tie back their hair, wear it as a choker, to cover their face and also as a wrap around over their shorts.
Everyone brought out that boho style in the desert, with all the funky and colourful styling. It was a massive trend during the festival, you could see glitter, body paint, stickers and temporary tattoos in all sorts of shapes and forms. The most frequent place it was seen on was aligned with the eyebrows on the face.
“I feel like maybe chokers are the new flower crowns?” Taylor Swift mused on her Instagram account. This is actually turning out to be really true though. Chokers were seen in the late 1700s first, then 1970s and 1990s and now they are back again as seen at Coachella. It is something that frames the neck nicely and it is a nice accessory for festival dressing. At Coachella we saw people with all sorts of things around their neck, some had chains, bandanas, wide cloth choker, fringes etc. It could go as a statement jewellery too buy just wearing a simple outfit and an interesting choker and you will be in the spotlight.
The Cowboy look was also popular this year at the festival and our favourite was when Kendall Jenner wore it with a sexy black lace top and carrying this strong look the best way possible. Not only did we see people wearing cowboy hats, people paired them up with ankle length boots by completing the full cowboy look.
The best way to go to beat the heat during the festival were these beautiful crocheted maxi dresses, skirts and bralettes. A number of people were seen wearing this look and the popular colour was white. White is the perfect colour for the summer, nice to accessorise colourful festival things with and to me personally I think crochet looks its best when it is in white. Kendall Jenner was seen rocking this look beautifully too, she nailed the trends this festival!
The flower crown lives! Taylor Swift did say that chokers are the new flower crowns but flower crowns were still equally very popular during Coachella 2016. The perfect way to give some summer freshness to your outfit is a nice colourful flower crown and a fun festival look too.
The boho look was such a hot trend during this first weekend of Coachella 2016 and a particular look that gives off a sudden boho chic look are fringes. We saw them everywhere, jackets, shoes, bags, tops, dresses and even in necklaces. They were very popular and some people wore this look with no pants so that the fringes would just hang over the legs and nothing else!
Chunky Silver Necklaces
Layered necklaces and chunky silvery necklaces was a new trend seen this time at the festival. They were big statement pieces and almost all seen were in this antique silver look though a few very spotted wearing a antique gold necklace. This was once again a very boho-indie look.
Bare shoulders! This is definitely a trend that has spread globally this year, it is a must have to have in your wardrobe for this summer. Show off those shoulders in style just like a bunch of these ladies were seen doing during the Coachella 2016 festival.
Wear your sunglasses this summer with a round frame because that’s how they all did at Coachella this weekend. Some very cool sunglasses were seen during the festival, some with very thin frames, some with flowers on them, and some with decorative things around the frame,
See Through Dresses
We are loving this new sexy summer look of see through dresses, the sheerness and transparent look gave off a very fun festival look and was somehow very elegant too. Paris Hilton wore this look perfectly and looked stunning, she was one of our favourites.
Go wild with these gladiator sandals which seem to be the hot trend for the shoes worn during the festival and they compliment those short shorts and dresses very well.
This was a summary of what we saw during weekend one of Coachella 2016, stay tuned for what we will see during weekend two!
