With a cool-girl twist on a staple black maxi, this Coachella attendee supplied a look not only worth duplicating for weekend two at the festival, but also one we could safely take to any weekend beyond the desert, too.

The result is a much more sophisticated ensemble with a hint of the trends that's begging to be taken from the Summer concert scene to your next weekend brunch, happy hour, and well beyond.

We couldn't help but notice the cute couples scene at Coachella. By combining their forces, these guys and gals — whether they're buddies, best friends, or lovers — proved that two style brains are better than one with their complementing aesthetics, cool duds, and overall cuteness factor. Some pairs opted for easy and effortless style, while others showed off edgier wares; either way, we're obsessed with all of them. Feast your eyes on the couples to take on Coachella 2013, and then tell us which two get your best-dressed vote in the comments section below.
Yellow: it's the color of the sun, marshmallow Peeps, and sunflowers, making it the ideal shade for Spring makeup looks. Admittedly it's also the hue of caution tape, so this trend may be reserved for the more daring set. But on the Spring 2013 runways, we saw a number of cool, creative, and just plain cheerful options to wearing the bright style. From hair to nails (and everything in between), discover new ways to wear lemon-toned shades this season.
With just these five pieces at work, consider this the street-style proof that it doesn't take much to outfit your most sophisticated office ensemble.

Welcome to the new school of low-heeled heels. Here you'll find a slick range of sexy slingback kitten heels (in brocade finishes and floral prints), polished ankle-strap pumps with crystal embellishments, and classic nude iterations, too. The common denominator? Despite the "under three inches" rule, these shoes pack a just-as-cool punch. And if you're worried about not fully maximizing the leggy look (yes, we know a killer pair of sky-high stilettos does wonders for lengthening your frame), then have a little fun with it. Go for a thigh-skimming skirt instead. All the convincing you'll need to take the low-heel plunge — aside from the obvious comfort perk — is just a click, or 32, ahead.
