So, you’ve purchased that expensive $500 ticket for Coachella weekend. You’re primed and ready to go have fun.
Well, think again. Because as much as Coachella is about music, dancing and good vibes, it’s also about fashion.
So what is trending in fashion for this year’s Coachella, which begins Friday, April 13?
According to noted fashion designer Eva Tziot, who specializes in fashion trends, this year it’s Bohemian, an older style popularized in the 1960s and 1970s that has never really gone away, but is in the midst of a big resurgence.
Also known, as “boho” or boho-chic,” the term bohemian emerged as a counterculture in France after the French Revolution. The Revolution forced many artists into poverty, forcing them to adopt a nomadic, minimalistic lifestyle, Tzioti writes on her website wwww.lemoutonbleu.com.
Over the years the term has come to mean many things, usually revolving around artists and other creative people living non-mainstream lifestyle, but in fashion it means clothing that is free and flowy, such as disco pants, balloon sleeves, bike shorts, fringed jackets and sweaters, ruffled skirts, simple floral patterns and materials ranging from stringy metallic to translucent fabrics. Basically, it’s a mix of the gypsy-tinged late 1960s and contemporary urban edge hat is remarkably easy to accessorize.
You can include items such as gladiator sandals, denim cut-offs and eye-catching accessories.
Now, keep in mind that the Coachella Valley is notorious for having unpredictable weather. Some years at Coachella, it’s hotter than the seventh level of hell; but it has also rained and turned the fields into a huge mud pit. So, come prepared. However you boho-chic it out, make sure you pack some warm, and rainy weather, gear.
But, hopefully, it will just be sunny and not too hot, which is perfect time to flaunt your Bohemian fashion.
