Coachella: Music and Fashion

Coachella: Music and Fashion

How do you usually spend your weekends? Well, the usual. You read a good A.M. Homes book or maybe do some DIY stuff and watch The Walking Dead episodes for the 5th time because you have to wait like forever for the next season. Or do the laundry and just be a slob for two days. OR YOU CAN GO TO COACHELLA.

Labelled as “anti-Woodstock” due to the organizers’ desire to book acts based on artistry than radio popularity,Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival’s main purpose is to recreate European style music festivals with small crowds. So you can imagine the whole scenario – fully booked Coachella hotels, Coachella tickets for sale and some real good music. As of today, it’s considered as one of the most famous and largest music festivals in the United States. I must say, these organizers are filthy rich.

Coachella Festival is originally about music. Or perhaps about fashion too. Throughout the years, Coachella fashion style revolves around denim shorts, mom jeans, high waisted shorts, fringes and boots. And don’t forget the messy hair look and fishtails, and hippie hair accessories. Some go for the gypsy look while others relive the 90s fashion trend. Indeed, the fashion industry is alive in the desert. No more boring weekends.

 

So how do you keep up with Coachella festival? Pretend that you’re somewhere in California, all packed up and ready for the festival. Imagine that sunset and that Coachella feeling that lingers in you as you go home.

 

So here’s how I managed to overcome my extreme jealous tendencies:

I’m a fan of 90s fashion style, especially street fashion. I’ve had several attempts to revive Alicia Silverstone’s looks in some of her old movies. Tattered denim shorts, comfy shirts or crop tops and boots – my most vivid memory of her. Not such a bad outfit for the Coachella event since some concert goers might wear something denim like mom jeans or anything stonewashed or faded. And don’t forget how hot it is in California.

Wide leg palazzo pants are just too comfortable for me. Coachella concert goers also go for a bohemian hippie look. I paired this bohemian gypsy patterned palazzo pants with a fit top and it contrasts my wide leg pants. As expected, women fashion is always complex.

Coachella is indeed about music and fashion. After all fashion is art.

How I Stole Morpheus’ (The Matrix) Look

How I Stole Morpheus’ (The Matrix) Look

While some girls go for vintage fashion or retro fashion, I go for sensible clothes- sensible fashion to be exact. I dress for comfort.  Sometimes maybe too comfortable.

I’m wearing a black cardigan that I bought from a thrift store, an acid wash soft denim top and my black lacy shorts. I was supposed to sell my cardigan only to realize that this black cardi makes me feel like Morpheus, only with my lacy shorts and sunnies.  So basically I feel like I’m Morpheus having gay feelings for Keanu Reeves. Don’t judge me Morpheus.

The Love For Suspender Skirts and Harajuku Fashion

The Love For Suspender Skirts and Harajuku Fashion

The fit and flare style is definitely not a fresh concept.  Yes, skater skirts were literally worn by figure skaters.  Flared skirts with bright colors- skaters began to wear them back in the old days.  Now they’re shorter, more modern and flared.

 

We’re done with skater skirts. And don’t forget the peplum dresses.  Because skater skirts become too mainstream, the fashion industry did some modifications. Although the suspender skirt idea is still not considered original and fresh, at least suspenders are cute and edgy.  Suspenders actually remind me of those androgynous looking guys in Lady Gaga’s video and  Jack of Titanic- my most vivid memories of suspenders.

 

I’m not really a fan of skirts. Oh well, let’s see.

Harajuku culture or fashion is popular worldwide. Even Gwen Stefani fell in love with it. The Harajuku Girls were featured in her stage shows and some Gwen Stefani music videos online.

 

If you like Tokyo fashion or anything Harajuku, then you should check these kawaii photos:

DIY Band Shirts Ideas

DIY Band Shirts Ideas

Lamb of God

 

I’m wearing my acid washed jeans that I bought from a thrift store and my pair of docs that I bought online. I know my LOG shirt is awesome.  So what I did was I cut the sleeves of the shirt because most band shirts are too big or too small for me. It’s actually more comfortable especially when it gets hotter everyday.  And the whole outfit looks simple yet badass. 

Band shirts sizes are usually large or extra large. They still look big even if it’s medium sized though. This is a big problem for most girls who want to wear band shirts and still look hot. What I did was I just cut off the neck and arms of the shirt to fit. There are a lot of DIY T-shirt cutting designs online. You can check Pinterest for more DIY shirt design ideas.

Floral Skirt Outfits

 

Admit it, anything floral is cute. I’m not really into floral but looking at people wearing floral takes me to happy places- makes me remember something sweet, something comfy.

Here’s how I usually wear my floral skirt.  When I go out, I sometimes wear shoes because I don’t want to go home with dirty feet.  Here in the Philippines, it’s always summer. It’s a tropical country thus the humidity is high.  Obviously, the temperature is too hot and dust is everywhere. Wearing my Dr. Martens Shoreditch that I bought online from http://www.dmusastore.com/.

Clothing brands are continuously producing floral outfits not just for women but also for men who like to explore their options when it comes to fashion. You can check other floral fashion ideas on Pinterest.
