While we are still wrestling with our umbrellas and having the ‘will I/won’t I wear tights today’ conversation with ourselves, in sunny Californian festival season has officially kicked off.
Coachella is the first festival on the style calendar, and the star studded event never fails to deliver outfit inspiration for ladies – with tiny waists and long legs – around the world.
For our Irish climate, we may need an edit – longer shorts, maybe the odd jumper or overcoat. And for those without model features, be inspired by the loose flowing dresses worn by Alexa Chung.
While Coachella does provide a treasure trove of festival inspiration, I have to say – while these images were our favs – there was a lot of disastrous, and somewhat outdated, fashion on show. Many celebrities – Kendall Jenner, I’m looking at you – looked exactly how they did last year. Too much fringing, too much cut off denim, and too much general ‘I think Coachella allows me to dress like an American Indian’ type behavior. For many of these American starlets, its like they see this festival as a reason to go posh hippie, which really has become so outdated as an overall look. While I love some fringing and the odd turquoise accessories, I think many of them take it a little TOO literally.
Lay off the tassles and daisy ducks for 2016 ladies, I know you can do better.
