Coachella Style to me is anything Vanessa Hudgens would wear. I am literally obsessed with the two-piece set I purchased online from Princess Polly, as it screamed Coachella. I bought the Ocean Drive Set several months ago with intentions to wear it to the festival, and I’m so happy I got to actually wear it. I wore this on day 2 of Coachella to see James Bay, Disclosure, Halsey, and Guns N’ Roses.
I have been looking for the perfect two-piece set for a while now, and I think I finally found that with this one.
Coachella has been something I have dreamed about since I first saw paparazzi pictures of Vanessa Hudgens there back in 2008. Since then, it has grown into something of a huge mainstream beast. I’ve heard so many different people’s take on this incredible growth Coachella has undergone – and there were a lot of positives as well as a lot of negatives.
The overall consensus is that Coachella has become more of a fashion show than a music festival. Coachella style has become a worldwide phenomenon. Walk into any retail store and you will see a section catered specifically to festival season. Is this a bad thing? I don’t think so, as long as you remember to appreciate first and foremost what the Coachella is – a MUSIC festival.
This year’s Coachella style trends included a lot of body suits and cheeky bottoms. Let’s just say, girls aren’t shy this festival season. I also noticed that chokers have replaced flower crowns, and bralettes replacing bras. I have always associated this festival with bohemian style, which I attribute to Coachella Queen Vanessa Hudgens. However, you can easily see the influence that raves like EDC have on this music festival, with lots of skin being shown. Then again, it does get pretty hot in the desert!
We’re officially a month away from Weekend 1 of Coachella 2016, and I am STOKED. Whether you are attending the music festival in the valley or are bracing yourself for major FOMO (that’s fear of missing out for those of you who don’t know), I have put together a playlist of this year’s lineup of artists to prep you for the weekend. Here’s my Coachella 2016 Playlist!
This will be my very first Coachella and music festival, and I am semi-aware of just what I’m getting myself into. And we will be car camping for the “proper” experience! Aside from logistics, it has all been so exciting in the lead up; and I’m almost certain it will continue to be so until I’m driving away from the festival, listening to my Coachella 2016 playlist.
I’m excited to be exposed to new music, but I’m even more excited to see artists I’ve always wanted to see in concert! I’m looking forward to jamming out to The 1975, Ellie Goulding, Halsey, Sia, Calvin Harris and oh how I hope that the Biebs comes out during Jack Ü’s set. The playlist includes some of the lesser known artists as well, but at the end of the day, music is music. The Chainsmokers have some really good songs out too! There’s just so much to look forward to.
And of course, I can’t wait for all the Coachella fashion. This festival, more than others I think, is very much a fashion show. Where Coachella Queen herself, Vanessa Hudgens, frolics around in bohemian-inspired outfits that are TO DIE for. Just look at her, she is my idol in every aspect of the word. I just adore her.
I’ll be channeling my inner Vanessa the whole weekend. I just have decide what I’m going to wear, which I think will be the hardest part.
I will be jamming out to this Coachella playlist from here on out! Hope you will, too.
