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!
Are you going to Coachella or any other music festival this summer? What are you packing and what are your must haves?
I LOVE music festivals for breaking out the weird. You can wear whatever you want and no one bats an eye. Your outfit with the Joan Jett tee is awesome. But to be fair I like them all. I haven’t bought tickets to any festivals because they’re all so expensive! #FlyAwayFriday
Festivals are the best for all your fun and weird clothes for sure! Thanks!
I’ve never been to Coachella or any big music festival for that matter…hmmm, I think I have something to add to my bucket list. I love your outfit choices. This is definitely the style I’d go for at a festival.
It’s defiantly a fun experience and bucket list worthy! And there a new festivals popping up every year all over so there are plenty to choose from.
Never been to a music festival but this post made it all around enticing! Wonderful packing list you’ve got there! #flyawayfriday
Glad you like the packing list! Music festivals can be a ton of fun especially if you like the bands playing and have a good group of friends to go with!
Great packing list, but the Joan Jett tee shirt is absolutely the best! #FlyAwayFriday
Thanks so much, I love that shirt too, makes me feel so punk rock!
Great outfits and a wonderfully different array of fashion sense! I particularly love the orange striped bathing suit!
Thanks, I like to mix it up a bit. I love the orange striped suit, its super comfy and cute!
I love your Joan Jett tee. Good packing list – you’ll look great while having fun! #flyawayfriday
Thanks, the Joan Jett tee is one of my favorites too, it’s super soft and comfy too since it old.
I love all of your outfits and fashion picks! Very similar to what I would wear. I dream of going to Coachella one day, it always looks so fun. I might have to make a special trip to the US next year just for that!
Thanks so much! Coachella is definitely one of the biggest festivals in the US and it is a ton of fun, but there a bunch more through out the summer and into the fall, and they are all over. So when ever you get over to the Sates theres probably a festival to check out 🙂
Omg did you go to Coachella Weekend 1 or next week? Hope you have so much fun! I went to Palm Springs for a few Coachella events but not the actual festival, haha! However I’m attending EDC Las Vegas, which I’m super excited about! Thanks for joining Fly Away Friday, hope to see you again this weekend! xo
I’m going this weekend, and I’m so stoked! I’ve never been to EDC but I know a lot of people who have and say its a blast!
