Style Advisor: Coachella

Coachella music festival has gained cult status in recent years, not only for its headline acts but for its trend-setting street style. Kicking off festival season, what you see worn by the stylish party-goers at Coachella is likely to dominate the summer style stakes for the year. These are festival people, but not as you know them in the UK – there’s something innately, glamorously shiny about the tanned abs and tiny shorts on show in CA. Here’s what will be wearing in the blissful California sun this year.

SUBTLY BOHEMIAN

Keep it care-free and suggestively sexy with a split-thigh maxi skirt and white off the shoulder top. A hint of shoulder and décolletage is still one of the most subtle but effective styling tricks for the festival season – get ready to bronze that collar bone. Finish with some delicate gold hardware courtesy of Gucci, and Stuart Weitman’s nude-coloured ankle boots.

CHIC SAFARI

One of the first high fashion houses to bring safari apparel to the fore, Saint Laurent’s camouflage jackets are as iconic now as they were in the ‘60s. Team yours with a feminine and playful co-ordinate, courtesy of Zimmermann, finished with lattice details and trimmed with delicate pompoms.

ROCK STAR SEQUINS

Make an impact by committing to the party with an all-over sequin dress. The definition of that oft-used term “show-stopper”, it doesn’t get more show-stopping than this silver Zoe Karssen dress. Not for the faint of heart, channel your inner rock-star for the day with biker boots and a Valentino embroidered bag.

CAREFREE PRINTS

No-one does bohemian festival-wear better than Australian brand CAMILLA, who source all of their inspiration by travelling the globe in search of authentic, artisanal prints. Pair a dreamy Camilla playsuit with a pair of Valentino’s bronze Rockstud sandals for ultimate leg-elongation. Finish with a luxe Saint Laurent backpack to store all of your festival essentials in.
