The great thing about a festival in the dessert is that it's hot and sunny and therefore minimal clothing is required. So dust of your cutoff shorts, mini dresses, and turquoise jewelry and don't forget the sunscreen! Although the weather is exclusively warm during this time of year there is the chance of obnormalities and one must always be prepared for the worst. So pack a few warmer layers incase of a sandstorm or misty rain.
We all already have items in our closet that are perfect for this weekend. ie: a pair of gladiator sandals from 4 years ago, that perfect white t from Velvet, or those high wasted Levi shorts you found at the Rose Bowl flea. But if you're anything like me, there no better feeling than finding a new special item that will freshen your current wardrobe and make this years set of outfits feel brand new (even if it's the third year in a row that you're wearing them). So find a fresh pair of sunnies, a statement necklace, or a bright colored dress, and everything will feel brand new!
When looking for the perfect festival pieces, no one understands this lifestyle better than the fashion brands based right in the heart of Los Angeles. These companies know their California girls and build each collection with beautiful pieces that can be worn over and over again in many different situations. Check the list below for my favorite LA brands to wear this year at Coachella!
Los Angeles and Planet Blue go hand in hand. These LA boutiques have everything you need from colorful sweats to the perfect LBD's. Their buyers have exquisite taste, and always bring together the best peices from all our favorite brands. When it comes to festivals their personal line, Blue Life will make you want to buy a VW van, find a hot boy with a guitar and beard and live a life on the road like Penny Lane.
