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.
