Trends for Coachella fashion tribes

Your guide to this years trending styles.

Festival fashion tends to evolve inside of the festival fairgrounds, free from of the influence of the normal fashion trendsetters. These trends are an interesting blend of practicality and deliberate eccentricity, displaying everything from flower headdresses, to cropped t-shirts and cut off shorts. We’ve taken some careful notes and assembled a list of Coachella fashion tribes. Where will you fit in?

1. Bikini Babes

You go to festivals not only for the music, but also to get a great tan. You don’t hesitate to wear neon, crochet, or a jumpsuit and you make it look superb. Your sunglasses and flip flops are always on and if you’re not at a stage, we can find you by the pool.

2. Costume Lovers

You live for using your festival style as a theme, and will wear almost anything as long as it’s outlandish. Head-dresses, face paint, superhero capes, and animal onesies – if you wore it last Halloween you’re probably wearing it to Coachella 2016. We’ll probably find you on stage at some point, and yes, we most definitely will ask to take a picture with you.

3. Glam Gals

You’ll never be seen with a speck of dirt on you, and your hair/make-up is always on point. You don’t “do” camping and we can most likely find you rubbing shoulders with stylish celebs in the VIP lounge. You wear glamorous, high-fashion dresses with heeled ankle boots. You continue to set the standard for desert fashion and can pull it off better than anyone else.

4. Professional Ravers

You know you’re going to be dancing all night and you place comfort over everything else. You’re a minimalist when it comes to styling and like to stick to cropped t-shirts, cut off shorts, headbands, and your gym shoes.  We’ll find you waving your hands in the air, embracing a sweaty dance tent or an open field. Festivals are your natural habitat and your Coachella fashion is effortless yet perfect in every way.

5. Cali Hispters

You’re part cowgirl and part Bohemian Hollywood. Your heart belongs in California, even if you’re from Idaho. You wear fringed tops, floral blouses, faded denim, cowboy boots and oversized hats. Your outfits always reflect what’s “in”, and last years styles are long gone. You set the bar for west coast fashion and put it on a fantastic display for all of us to see.


Whether you admit it or not… festivals (Coachella is no exception) are just as much about the people as it is about the music. Highly stylized outfits are most certainly a form of self expression. People love to experiment with trending fashion crazes and take a break from the mundane. Whether you keep it simple wear something wild, make sure you’re comfortable and make Coachella 2016 memorable!

Top 5 pro tips for surviving Coachella

If this year will be your first Coachella experience or you think you may need a refresher on how to do festivals the right way, keep the following 5 pro tips in mind before embarking into the Indio valley rage fest. Trust me, you won’t regret it!

1. Bring your wristband.

This might seem like a no-brainer, but it’s super important nonetheless. This is your one and only ticket into the festival, and if forget it you’ll be spending a weekend in Indio valley missing what is, without a doubt, the most exciting thing that takes place there all year. Guard that wristband with your life!

2. Pack appropriately.

Remember that you’re going to be in the desert all day and night in the middle of Spring. The weather could vary from blistering heat to brutal wind storms that will kick up so much dust and dirt you’ll be wanting to run for cover. Whatever your style may be, make sure you’re able to keep yourself cool and protected from the sun/wind/dirt. Hats, glasses, sun screen, chapstick, handkerchiefs, and scarfs are a good starting point. Oh, and not mention an water bottle. Stay hydrated people! There are free water refill stations that you should become pretty familiar with.

3.  Pick a meeting spot.

Even if your group is small you don’t plan on splitting up, picking a common meeting place just in case is a must. There are literally hundreds of thousands of people filtering in and out of the festival all weekend, which makes it real easy to get disoriented and lost real quick. There are tons of unique art installations set up throughout the festival, so I suggest picking one of those is your best bet.

4. Airplane mode.

Keeping your smartphone in airplane mode is one of the best things you can do to ensure your device will have enough power to get you through the day. Yes, there is a “charging station” but it’s almost always really crowded and time consuming so I would avoid it if you can. Your cellular service will be pretty much non-existent anywhere on the festival grounds anyways, so keeping your phone searching for it when there is none will only drain the battery that much faster. At Coachella your phone is a clock, camera, a way to check the line-ups, and that’s pretty much about it.

5. Don’t camp, rent a house.

This may not be as practical of a tip depending on your budget, but if you happen to be with a big group or can find a bigger group to room with for the weekend it will most definitely be worth it. Camping at Coachella is what most people would call a rite of passage, but a shower after a long day and a comfortable bed to sleep in at night cannot be understated. Coachella is a marathon, not a sprint. You will surely be exhausted after every day, so make sure you’re getting at least enough rest to power you through 3 days.

And most importantly… HAVE FUN! Coachella only comes around once a year and you paid a pretty penny for that ticket. Check out music you’ve never heard of, talk to new people, and keep the adventure alive. Enjoy it to the fullest!
