Spring is just around the corner which means blooming flowers, chirping birds, and... music festivals! Specifically, Coachella, popular for not only its insane music lineups but its fashion as well. I will be attending Coachella for the first time in April and I am so ecstatic! I’ve always loved seeing pictures of Coachella fashion, and finally being a part of it is unreal. My friends and I have been doing our homework and pinning any eye-catching looks on Pinterest to prepare for this experience of a lifetime. Here are a couple of my favorite OOTDs.

Don’t forget about the hair and make-up! It’s personally my favorite part and sets the festival outfits apart from looking like a normal outfit. You can never do too much when it comes to festival make-up, so get creative! Play around with different colored glitter, flakes, and jewels! They’re so pretty and are like accessories for your face! I purchased these from Amazon.
Coachella is all about expressing yourself without judgement, so wear what makes you feel confident and festival-ready! Just make sure you think about your attire/makeup twice before you might offend someone. Stay away from Native American headdresses as well as bindis. I know they’re beautiful but they should only be worn for their cultural reasons, not a music festival. Aside from that, have fun with styling your festival outfits! Grab your best girlfriends, sunscreen, a water bottle and go out there and SLAY!! XoXo, ~Sophia
