This week, everybody is celebrating the season’s most buzzed-about music festival, Coachella. Lucky you if you are heading to the desert and secured a ticket to head to one of the biggest music festivals of the year! But, whether you are heading to Coachella or any music festival for that matter in the coming weeks, you should keep in mind what you are going to pack. Besides keeping your body hydrated and your gas tank full, what you will be wearing does matter. With literally hundreds of shoes, rompers, pants, sunglasses, and bags getting dressed can feel overwhelming. The fear that you might not dress the part, or worse, forget something at home sets in and your stress levels rise. Well, fear no more. Desert style is a thing.
For me, comfort is a big factor at festivals. Sprinting from stage to stage to catch the music, you might want to pack a pair of flats along with your platforms. With a bunch of music festivals under my belt, I have my bag at the ready for what to wear for at the desert. Because a floral bandeau top is the stereotypical music festival look, what if you are not that into baring all? How about paisley for a change? Get your style cues here, get your crown ready, and break down what suits you best. Whether you can’t make it to Coachella or have your ticket ready to go, you can get your fix of the show’s hottest looks by clicking down below for inspiration! This is it.

Add a jumpsuit or romper. When the weather is perfect outside, nothing is easier than throwing on a one-piece. Shop my favorite rompers and playsuits.
Pack a variety of shoes. One thing is for sure – there is a lot of walking and a lot of dust. You will need a good pair of sturdy combat boots, ankle boots, or sneakers. I would not recommend open toe shoes as they will get extremely dirty. In this case, white sneakers are a bad idea, black sneakers are a better choice. Better yet, wear boots that match the dirt.
Stay hydrated. Wear flower crowns. Bring a backpack. And most of all, have a great time!
