Style Advisor: What To Wear To Coachella

Coachella is one of the most exclusive events in the festival calendar and is a dust-bowl music festival like no other. Held under the beating sun of California’s Colorado Desert, it attracts headline acts and VIPs in equally abundant quantities. We recommend taking the opportunity to dress like an LA A-lister and have some fun with your wardrobe by experimenting with combinations you wouldn’t in ‘civilian’ life. Cali sunsets are the perfect backdrop for an urban-cool aesthetic with a chilled-out, rock-tinged edge. Get ready to enter hedonism-mode and feel the euphoria with our guide to festival dressing.

THE LABEL: OFF-WHITE

Cult brand Off White c/o Virgil Abloh has an industrial quality at odds with the tired-out ‘bohemian’ festival look. Break the ‘festival boy’ mould and dance the desert days and nights away in their indisputably cool new-season accessories and Tees.

THE SHADES: SOMETHING NEW

If all goes to plan, Coachella sessions mean days with no sleep. Tired eyes need shielding from the UV rays and epic strobe lighting – turn to Tom Ford, Gucci and Saint Laurent for a stylish solution to bleary vision and blood-shot eyeballs.

THE BAG: FORM AND FUNCTION

Dancing and drinking require two things of a man: free hands and the urge to party. Take care of the former with a backpack or festival-appropriate bum bag by Saint Laurent or Palm Angels. We’ll leave the latter to you.

THE FOOTWEAR: COOL & PRACTICAL

The temptation when in the desert maybe to wear sliders, but when you’re pounding the floor and dancing ‘til god knows when in the morning, you’ll be glad of some sensible but nonetheless stylish footwear. Opt for sneakers or sturdy sandals in sporting silhouettes or laid-back neutral shades.
