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.
Your Spring wardrobe revamp doesn't always have to be a dramatic one, and we're looking to this street-style subject for proof of a more subdued kind of seasonal overhaul. Between the eye-catching distressed jeans, the abundance of classic white layers, and the polished shoe choice, this is the kind of outfit that makes it impossibly easy to strike a balance between casual and chic. To achieve a similar effect, keep your worn-in, distressed jeans handy, then pair them with a white t-shirt (the more relaxed, the better) and an oversize white jacket. A white blazer or longer car-coat style will work just as well. As for the accessories, stick to the sophisticated basics, like black slingback pumps, a gold watch, and a neutral-toned bag. Now, shop the essentials below.
