1. PLAY WITH YOUR HAIR:
Coachella is a crazy place that necessitates crazy locks. My favorite hair trend at the moment is glittery roots—glitter on the roots of your hair to appear as if your overgrown natural hair is actually glitter colored. This sparkly detail is subtle, but will surely turn some heads… heads less sparkly than yours that will long for you to enlighten them of your mysterious ways. Also be sure to try out a flashy wig, extensions, feathers, or flowers. The limit of hair accessories does not exist.
2. WAR PAINT:
The best part about dressing up for Coachella is decorating your face. The time has finally come for all of the other colors of the rainbow on your eye shadow palate to feel like they’re worth something too! Go all out with vibrant shadow, liner, or—dare I say it—both! Some other major makeup trends to follow are face jewels, or actual paint in tribal designs. Don’t stop at your pretty face; spread the paint-love to your arms and hands too.
Every Coachella Queen must have precious jewels. Adorn yourself with never-ending bangles, body chains, mid-rings and piercings (even if they’re fake). Throw on an elaborate headdress too because, after all, you are Coachella Cleopatra. Never forget it.
4. ROCK YOUR THREADS:
You’re not just going to a festival; you’re taking part in a magical, desert fantasyland fashion show. Consistent trends of every Coachella include crocheted tops, vests, bathing suits, scarves, leather, and a lot of denim. Revisit your childhood dress-up chest, because the neon sarong made of plastic coins and polyester from your 3rd grade genie costume will definitely work. Although fashion is absolutely a thing at Coachella, make sure to keep the music more important than the outfits.
You’re here to jam out after all, which brings us to…
5. DANCE LIKE NOBODY’S WATCHING:
This is major. You’re the Coachella Queen. Own it.
You’re invited to the grown-up birthday party for a grown-up issue that will take place on Monday, April 11th at Level 8 Lounge at the Hotel Duval. From six to nine, each guest will be able to take part in our gift filled raffle, drink our signature champagne cocktail, plus more!
Our super talented Editor-in-Chief, Christie Childers, and Creative Director, Morgan Wren, are the back bone of Clutch Magazine and have spent this entire semester making sure that the 20th issue is nothing short of spectacular.
“We are really excited to unveil all the new changes, we have made, at the release party,” said Childers. “We made sure to focus on every bit of this issue to ensure that all the graphics, photos, and editorials were all original content.”
“We also really worked hard to include more diversity in our models, trends, and in our articles,” added Wren. “It truly is a grown-up issue, and that’s why we’re throwing a grown-up birthday party.”
The Clutch release party will be held at Hotel Duval’s Level 8 Lounge for the first time in Clutch history. The sophisticated, and edgy atmosphere will match attendees in cocktail attire, while its panoramic balcony will make for the best Instagram photos to ever be uploaded in Tallahassee.
The entire Clutch team has worked hard this semester to up the game in what it means to be a student-run magazine. Just looking at the bits and pieces of the process, you will never believe that a team of college students were able to put together such a professional and commendable magazine.
Come out to Clutch’s release party and I promise that it will be a night you’ll never forget! Just imagine it: You are outside on the balcony of Level 8 Lounge listening to the live band perform, while you skim the pages of our newest edition letting the hues of the Tallahassee sunset be a backdrop for the release party. You’re going to have a tough time leaving once the bus to Clyde’s shows up to take all the attendees to the after party.
Happy 10th Birthday, Clutch!
"Inspire women who understand that beauty is more than your physical appearance”
This is Beyoncé’s main goal with the launch of her workout clothing line, Ivy Park. With over 200 items to be released on April 14th, one cannot help but anticipate its reveal.
The name Ivy Park is in homage to Beyoncé’s daughter, Blue Ivy, but also pays tribute to Parkwood Park, located in Houston, that her father and her would go running in when she was younger. In the promotional video posted on the Ivy Park website (and seems to be circulating all other the web), she says that the park has become more of “a state of mind”.
“When I have to conquer those things, I still go back to that park. Before I hit the stage, I go back to that park. When it was time for me to give birth, I went back to that park.” Beyoncé then adds, “The park became my strength”.
The collaboration between Queen B and TopShop was announced just before the end of 2015, and had the fashion world buzzing about what type of clothing would be produced by Bey and the British retailer.
The athleisure brand, according to the Ivy Park website, is a “new kind of performance wear: modern essentials for both on and off the field.” Seems like a dream come true for the collegiate; look fashionable for class and the gym. With prices ranging from $30 to $200, it seems like everyone will be blowing away their next paycheck on this new fashion forward phenomenon.
Ivy Park will be available for purchase at topshop.com, shop.nordstrom.com, and zalando.com. Keep an eye out for a review of the clothing line here on Clutch after it’s release! But in the meanwhile, check out the amazing Beyoncé and her promotional video (below) for Ivy Park:
