You know those internet memes in which some sketched stig figure with mermaid hair and long legs is swamped under piles of work, on her 3,945,345 cup of coffee, going through 45,056,978,098 unanswered emails, getting no work done, but endlessly pinning nails and 2017 Coachella fashion outfits? The said sketch depicts moi 100% on any given Monday, or in post-holiday trauma. I know ‘long legs and mermaid hair’… #eyeroll. Let a girl dream, will ya?
It’s Thursday, but it feels like the longest Monday in the histroy of mankind, and the food coma a la post-easter ain’t helping much. The only thing that’s actually soothing my heart at least, and my thrist for pretty things is the 2017 Coachella Fashion. The fact that the festival happened over easter weekend is both great and not so great.
However two sided this may be, the focus is on the good side, and why missing 2017 coachella was actually the best thing ever.
- Eating a lot over the holidays, so, had we stayed glued to coachella news that would have never happened
- It’s something to look forward to when there’s nothing to look forward to. #postholidaysadness
- I have an excuse to not work per se, due article research you know (read hours on Pintrest and Instagram). #mylifeisgreat
Summer Looks To Copy From 2017 Coachella Fashion
I like festivals and summer festival fashion. It’s a great fashion in the city, on my Instagram, in my FB feed, you know, anywhere I don’t actually have to go and do the festival fashion per se. I love it, but I’m over it. Celebrities have a lot of fun at these things and it’s like a dress-up game for both VIPs and mortals. If it ain’t your cuppa, why not sit it out and steal their sartorial music festival ideas for quiet vacations, or city daily styles?
Firstly, this one’s for all the hardcore lipstick and bling lovers. Secondly, it’s for the dainty romantic types. But thirdly it’s mainly for those who are both and neither, and can’t for the life of them pick one style. I know, enough about me, but hey… it is true.
The queens of boho glam are the Jenners. Kendall is a master at mixing wide legged pants, bra tops, boho hats with glam jewellery, and classic red lips. It’s the perfect balance and contrast of the two looks, giving this summer style enough casual vibe as well as that great sophistication we so love.
The fact that athleisure is still IN and strong is no surprise. What is a shocker is how it crawled its way right into the heart of bohemia and rocknroll. Hence the tons of sporty outfits a la 80s with a 90s twist, and a present day edginess. Very city do-able.
Lingerie and swimwear as outwear
Go on, read that one again. YES it is true my friends, we are indeed one step closer to being free willies. It’s great, if only time moved backwards. This summer Coachella was packed with cool bras worn as tops, full bodysuits aka swimwear, bikinis under sheer tops and dresses. Lingerie inspired outfits or swimwear worn as such or paired with cutoffs, skirts or sheer fabrics were stars of the show.
It’s fantastic. If you’re 17.
The classic summer festival look.
You can’t go wrong with it whether or not you’re actually at a music event or just cruising in the city. Pair cutoffs with anything from t-shirts to crop tops, sneakers or boots. Wear summer dresses, and palazzo pants with tiny tops, hats, sunglasses, vests, tiny skirts, maxi skirts – anything remotely boho chic, summer-ish, and rocknroll.
