Festival-Style Jewelry and Fashions for Spring

Coachella 2017

For many fans, the Coachella Music Festival near Palm Springs, California, is as much about the fashions as it is about the music. Coachella’s Boho looks have been chronicled on social media and by fashion editors for several years, but now Festival Style is officially “a thing.”

The annual event runs for two weekends in April, and this year a record crowd is expected in the desert. Whether or not you attend, you can infuse your warm-weather wardrobe with festival-style jewelry and fashions that will work in any casual setting or Spring Break destination.

The comfortable-yet-sexy Boho vibe is totally infectious; once you get the basics down, you’ll want to layer on plenty of jewelry and accessories.

Tops

Joining last year’s festival-fave crop top is the off-the-shoulder blouse, and the newly-popular bralette. Consider also a kimono, a breezy cover-up that looks great over a tank top with cutoffs or a short skirt. Look for vintage “I’m-with-the-Band” logo T-shirts online and at local thrift stores.

For cool desert nights (or after sundown where you live), a jean jacket is an absolute must. The Gap’s “1969” model retails for $69.99; it’s a classic that has inspired designer versions at many times the price.

Bottoms

Denim cutoffs in blue or white are the uniform of the day at Coachella. But if you’re not the short-shorts type, try a long, flowery skirt with a tank top or T. Mix and match these bottoms with your jean jacket and kimono wrap. Anything goes, as long as it’s Boho!

Dresses

Nothing works better in a hot climate than a gauzy midi- or maxi-dress, and this season all the best ones come in floral prints. Wear yours with boots or wedge-style espadrilles. You’ll look cool and stylish when the action heats up.

Jewelry and Accessories

To round out your festival-style outfits, shop for woven leather belts, cross-body bags, backpacks, floppy hats and flat-soled boots (a must for walking between music venues at Coachella).

When it comes to jewelry, think extra-long pendants and Southwestern statement necklaces. We love the Audrina Warrior Bib from Baublebar, a convertible style you can wear three different ways.

Finally, invest in a pair of “sliced” geode earrings, a few funky brooches, and stacked bangle bracelets. Embrace your festival style this spring and summer…and rock on!
