Crank up the heat with some festival style and hot beats!

Have your social media accounts been spammed by photos, videos, and articles featuring crazy fashion filled with feathers, florals, and fringe? Just in case you've been living under a rock, Coachella season is upon us, in all of its fringe obsessed glory. That's right, the music festival in the Californian desert kicked off last weekend, and part two is going down this weekend!

Whether you went or not, Coachella is an iconic festival that always inspires the most fun, quirky, and colorful fashion. With headliners like AC/DC, Jack White, Drake, Florence & the Machine, and many more, it's no wonder it is one of the largest, most famous, and most profitable music festivals. 

With its bohemian source of inspiration, Coachella is a fashion icon in and of itself to look to for spring/summer looks. So, without further ado, let's dive into some Coachella-inspired fashion along with the accompaniment of musical highlights from this year's lineup:

Look 1:  Stolen Dance

Let's kick off the festival style by incorporating a lot of the boho trends at once, shall we? The main piece, this floral fringed kimono jacket, acts as the perfect statement piece to what are relatively neutral pieces.

A simple white dress with crochet cut-outs, mesh open-toed booties, and a layered necklace add perfectly free spirited details. Top it off with fun touches, like a wide-brimmed hat and a bright bag, and you're ready to dance away any troubles!

Look 2: Ship to Wreck

Cochella look: maxi skirt and crop top

You can't possibly create Coachella-inspired outfits without throwing in a floral crown somewhere. Combine it with a stunning tie-dye skirt for extra oomph and pile on the jewelry to create a hippie look that's perfect for the desert.

A practical but cute backpack is the perfect option for carrying around any essentials you'll need throughout the day, and slightly raised sandals keep you both stylish and comfortable. 

Look 3: Say My Name

Yes, it's another outfit featuring a wide-brimmed hat, but these accessories are necessary if you're out in the sun! Keep it festival-appropriate with a statement-making fringe vest and fun floral shorts.

A mint crossbody bag adds a soft touch of color, while open-toed booties give some height and stability with a wide heel. Layer on a few pieces of jewelry and you're ready to groove along in style!
