Desert Storm

What do Birkenstocks, mirrored sunglasses, and loads of fringe have in common? You guessed it, it’s almost music festival season. If luck would have it that you’re going to the neon carnival that is Coachella, consider yourself a lucky dog. There are going to be daytime pool parties galore sponsored by the likes of H&M, Nylon, and Guess, among the many, great music, and lots of nudity.

JK about the nudity. But one thing is certain: it’s going to be a style bonanza of epic proportions. Whether you bump into the bohemian bombshells in their peasant blouses and ankle boots (ahem, Kate Bosworth) or the high-end hipsters in skinny jeans and crop tops — you will want to fit in one way or another. Betting there will be a lot of normcore looks this year, let’s just hope the flower crown doesn’t reign supreme.

Deciding what to wear to the festival has now become as stressful as getting your hands on a ticket and that’s why I have created a handy guide for the must-haves before you head out to the desert.
