Coachella has become almost as much about the fashion as it is about the music. Just search “Coachella” on Pinterest and the 99% of the photos you’ll see are girls doing their best fashion poses. And while I’ve always been more about the music, I do love me some good festival fashion.
There are three distinct styles you see at Coachella, rock ‘n roll, boho, and all out neon weirdness. I like to embrace all three, but this year my packing list is leaning a little more rock ‘n roll than previous years. I’m really digging the ripped up shorts and band t-shirts this year, it feels like a little bit of a throwback to my high school punk rock days. And I’m totally digging it.
Here’s what I’m packing
1.Band Tee (similar) // 2. Tank Top // 3. Sunglasses // 4. White Tee // 5. Bralettes // 6. Cut Off Shorts // 7. Bright Board Shorts // 8. Bandanas // 9. Jean Jacket (similar) // 10. Tennies // 11. Fanny Pack // 12. Towel // 13. Bikini // 14. One Piece // 15. Flip Flops
I’m keeping it pretty casual and comfortable this year with shorts and tee’s. I really love that Joan Jet tee shirt because I actually got it after seeing her at another festival, anyone remember the Warped Tour? I almost immediately cut it up because I thought it would look cooler. And I’m pretty sure 16 year old me made the right choice!
Switching it up a little to a more tropical vibe with the board shorts. I really love all the crazy patterns Tipsy Elves has for their clothes. The boom boxes are comically 80’s and I love it.
Save water, drink champagne. Need I say more?
And you’ve got to have something for hanging out around the pool. I love this towel from Sand Cloud because it doubles as a picnic blanket too. It rolls up super small so you can bring it with you into the festival to have something to sit on when you want to take a break from dancing.

No matter what your style, Coachella fashion is all about having fun, so break out the ironic tee shirts and neon leggings and get weird!
