Coachella kicks off its first concert series this weekend, and before you go into full "I have nothing to wear" panic mode, we created three fresh festival-ready looks that are bound to get you noticed — and even snapped. Instead of pulling out the usual pair of cutoff shorts, show off your style cred in a denim pinafore and crisp white top, or get sporty in a pair of silk printed shorts and printed sneakers. And if you're feeling the bohemian mood, then opt for an easy maxi dress with statement accessories. Need further explanation? Click on for three easy yet eye-catching Coachella-ready outfits.

Reese Witherspoon's 3.1 Phillip Lim Ava pumps ($179, originally $450) have helped amp up her Spring style, and now it's time they do the same for you — at 60 percent off! (Side note: we love how they share the same name as her daughter.) There are many things we adore about these colorblocked pumps: the two-tone detail makes them stand out among a sea of classic pumps, the mix of fuchsia and burgundy works well for day and night, plus the d'Orsay cut gives them a vintage flair. And, of course, the majorly discounted price tag means they won't break your budget. Win-win in our book. Work Reese's exact pumps into your Spring style, but first, read a few easy tips on how to get the most wear out of them.
- Follow Reese's lead, and dress up your favorite denim by pairing them with your colorblocked pumps. Finish with a chambray top for a fresh denim-on-denim outfit.
- For a classic look, wear these pumps with a little black or white dress for day or night.
- For an edgier evening look, sport your new pumps with leather — it can be a dress, skirt, shorts, or pants.
- For a work-appropriate ensemble, match your pumps with a silky button-down and cropped trousers.
Styling your printed pants might be easier than you might think, as exemplified by brunette beauty Jordana Brewster. The actress headed into the VH1 studios in NYC yesterday looking effortlessly polished in a pair of black-and-white floral trousers tempered with a black long-sleeved top — easy, right? It's all about balancing out a bold print with more neutral accompaniments, which Jordana shows here, but notice how she took her styling skills up a notch with a pair of pink printed ankle-strap pumps for an extra-sassy Spring touch. Finish off the look with a gray shoulder bag, and you're set for your next casual workday or relaxed evening outing. Simply shop our editors' picks below to channel Jordana's effortless take on printed pants.
We're heading into the desert sun for Coachella in just a few short days, and if you are too, it's time to start packing! Every year, the festival-style meter is raised to a whole new level — just look at Rosie Huntington-Whiteley at last year's fest — so needless to say, we're stepping up our style game. With fashion and function in mind (there's nothing worse than walking around with blisters or a wardrobe malfunction), we're packing a few pretty dresses, comfy — and totally cool! — flats, fun tees, and statement accessories for the finishing touch. Step inside to see what we're packing, and shop a few of these pieces for yourself.
Midi skirts — that's a hemline that hits below the knees but above the lower calf — are an easy way to inject ladylike flair to your style. Since the style is notoriously tricky to pull off without feeling conservative, overly covered up, or, at worst, frumpy, we have the key tips on how to make this skirt flirty and fun (and office-appropriate, if that's what you need). Including solid, printed, muted, and bright colored styles, we culled 14 of our favorite picks for you to shop. But first, a few quick styling tips to help you nail the look every time.
- We've focused on the classic circle silhouette because it's the most universally flattering.
- Pleated waistlines can make you look wider at the hips, so look for a flat-front with an A-line shape if that's your problem area.
- If you're on the taller side, go for a skirt that hits the calf, and if you're petite, choose one that's right below the knee.
- Midi skirts look great with heels to help lengthen the leg, but a sweet flat or strappy sandal gives it a softer feel.
- To balance out the longer hemline, we recommend pairing your midi skirt with a shorter, even cropped, top, or just try tucking your tee in.
Once you've found your dream dress, it's time to complete the look with the perfect wedding veil or headpiece. We like to think of your wedding day as the ultimate "red carpet" event of your life, and with that comes the pressure of looking nothing short of spectacular as you make your way down the aisle. This necessary accessory is the second-most important piece to a bride's ensemble. Whether you prefer to go the traditional route in a pretty cathedral lace veil or opt to go more bohemian à la Margherita Missoni, we picked out 14 of the prettiest wedding veils and headpieces to finish off your bridal look. From Jenny Packham's barely there mesh confection (see below) to a handmade floral headband, see and shop all of our beautiful editors' picks.
If you need further proof that statement printed dresses are here to stay, let Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, and Dianna Agron be the latest examples of why you need to invest in one, stat. The three actresses recently attended the Vogue Triple Threats dinner in LA looking nothing short of Spring-ready in their respective party frocks: Anna made a statement in a silk flare dress by Thakoon, Brittany opted for a midlength creation by Duro Olowu, and Glee girl Dianna Agron showed off her new red 'do in a two-piece runway look from Derek Lam. Needless to say, we're inspired to shop similar looks to prepare ourselves for the warm-weather party season ahead (weddings, bridal showers, dinner parties, etc). Style tip: make sure to accessorize a bold patterned dress with more neutral accompaniments, so you don't take attention away from the main centerpiece. Now, ready to evoke the same Spring-perfect look? Shop our top 16 eye-catching, jaw-dropping statement printed dresses below.
