Coachella Trends, Weekend One
Coachella has always been about the music, but right after the music, it’s definitely about the fashion. Especially with celebrities spreading their fashion wings at the hottest annual concert in the country, fans are inspired to try new looks and take on the newest trends. This year is no exception, with crowds going beyond predictable ethnic details, fringe, and flower crowns.
The first weekend of Coachella was definitely on point musically, the highlight being a surprise appearance by Drake during Future’s set. The fashion was definitely must-see as well… these were a couple of trends that we spotted and loved:
-Let’s start with beauty and hair. No longer shy about shimmer, girls did away with bronzer and opted for glitter highlighter! Glitter was also worked into hair, in the form of double buns. Another hot trend? Space buns (several twisty buns around the head).
-Underwear as outerwear has been quite the sensation at Coachella, with bralettes and unitards ruling concert crowds. It’s easy to see why, as pieces like this are easy to mix and match, and many girls did just that, adding funky twists to simple pieces. We loved seeing leotards draped with fabrics of all sorts, in every imaginable way.
-Metal neckpieces and mirror-embroidered tops. This year was not just sugar and spice – Coachella fans were out there in extreme textiles, along the lines of stacked metal chokers, and cute, tie-back little netted shirts with jagged mirrored pieces embroidered in.
