Thought you’d heard the last word on chokers and statement necklaces? For the warrior look so popular at Coachella, head to the Sugarfix by BaubleBar collection at Target stores. This silver-tone bib is reminiscent of the necklace that top model Jourdan Dunn wore to the festival in 2016. It’s truly a high-fashion find for only $29.99.

All the Pretty Horses

Coachella is in the desert, after all, so all things western are fair fashion game. Prairie-style dresses are big for spring, and they’re much more sophisticated than last year’s Boho styles. Wear them with lariat or bolo tie necklaces, lots of turquoise and silver, and stacks and stacks of bangle bracelets.

All-Access Pass

Summer music festivals have inspired some top designers to transform V.I.P. badges into jewelry and accessories. At Dior, the all-access wristband turned up as a status summer bracelet, while Gigi Hadid X Tommy Hilfiger showed “I’m with the band” credentials dangling as pendants.

The 2018 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California, runs from Friday, April 13 through Sunday, April 22. For more info, visit Coachella.com.
