Coachella, Coachella, Coachella!! Everyone and I mean everyone in the fashion industry is blogging about what to wear to the music festival, how to wear your hair and who to see and so forth, but what you should really know about Coachella Music Festival is how to survive it–fashion wise at least.
Gaining popularity more and more each year and selling out faster and faster, I can only assume many of the people going are first timers. I’ve gone to Coachella many many times, but sadly I will not being going this year. Nonetheless I know a thing or two about surviving the three-day weekend in one piece. Here are some fashion surviving tips and items you should not wear during your musical weekend.
1. Do not wear open toe shoes or flip-flops
Naturally, it makes sense to wear your open toe shoes, you want to be comfortable, but leaving the festival due to a broken toe or foot is not fun. The tents and stages get extremely packed, especially if you plan on seeing any of the popular headliners. People start to push, shove, run and your toes are at their mercy. There are many foot candy options for you to wear that are adorable and will provide protection.
2. Do not wear expensive sunnies
Why risk loosing or breaking you Ray-Ban’s or Prada’s? Yes, I know they’re amazing and look great with your maxi skirt, but why take that chance? Get a pair of cute sunnies that are inexpensive and you can throw around in your tote when the sun has set. Forever 21 has an amazing selection and they’re less then $8!
3. Do not wear a lot of makeup
This festival takes place in the desert, it’s either going to be really hot or raining. Half the day you’ll have sunnies on and the other half will be dark with only your glow sticks to use as light. Keep the cosmetics to a minimum, a little powder, some water proof mascara, a bright lipstick and you’ll be ready to roll!
Be safe and make sure to stay hydrated! xoxo
