Whether you’re ‘coachillin’ in Palm Springs or rocking out during Bonnaroo, you’ll know that the most important thing about festivals is the fashion.
The boho chic playsuits, ‘70s-inspired sunnies and strappy sandals all add to the vibe of the event. Celebrities like Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez and Kendall and Kylie Jenner have stepped out in some of the trendiest festival clothing, and here’s the secret to their amazing style.
Coachella outfits on a budget
When it comes to celebrities and their Coachella fashion, our first thought is that their whole outfit costs more than a semester at NYU, but for festival season, nothing beats shopping at smaller, less expensive indie brands.
Stores like Sabo Skirt, Revolve Clothing and Quay Australia are quickly becoming key to showing off the latest and greatest festival fashion and clothing.
The land down under creates some of the sexiest and stylish clothes festival clothes of the season. Sabo Skirt, an Australian-based brand, focuses on showing off those toned legs, flat mid-riffs and tanned skin.
An abundance of laced sleeves, deep v-necks and exposed shoulders puts this brand at the forefront of festival apparel and Kendall Jenner’s closet.
This off-the-shoulder dress is sugar, spice and everything nice. The perfect balance between sweet and edgy, the lace trimming is partnered with a sexy shoulder-baring cut and sleek body-con fit. Pair this dress with a floppy hat and gladiator sandals, and you’ll be turning heads at every corner.
Bold is the way to go for this season’s festival wear. This halter-style playsuit features a drastically low deep V and a low back for the ladies ready to show off some skin. The tassel hemline adds a dash of flirty to this sexy look. Finish off the look with a skinny belt to accentuate that hourglass shape.
Flowy and flirty are the best words to describe this lilac wrap top from Sabo Skirt. The thin straps, elongated shoulders and flared sleeves scream ‘70s, while the soft lilac coloring makes it stand out from the ordinary dusty hues we’re accustomed to seeing.
Why not keep it sexy, chic and everything in between? This edgy asymmetrical skirt is ideal for the leggy fashionista who’s ready to show some skin. Although it features a semi-modest slit, this high-waist skirt flaunts the legs and accentuates the hips with ruche detailing.
This rapidly growing US-based store covers all your apparel needs. Ranging from classy cocktail dresses to casual day-time picks, Topshop has been seen on stars such as Cara Delevigne and Taylor Swift.
More recently, this store has shot to the forefront of fashion with the release of Beyonce’s Ivy Park, but stars like Kate Bosworth and Vanessa Hudgens are flocking to Topshop for this must-have festival collection.
Cut-outs are a great way to make a fashion statement and to keep cool on hot days in the desert. This lace panel top features an intricate design meant to show off the mid-riff while falling low on the waist. Pair this top with low rise shorts and booties for a casual summer look.
These white floral shorts are perfect for dressing up any casual look. Ideal for hot summer days, these loose fitting shorts will flutter around in the wind, giving you a break from the sweltering sun. Dress down this look with a black cutout crop top, or rise to the occasion with a flowy blouse tucked into the waist.
Suede used to be a thing of the past, but every festival season, the ‘70s take a step back into the limelight. These tan colored sandals feature a cut-out and laced detail that adds to the classic appeal of this style. Suede sandals receive bonus points during festival season because they can be paired with almost any outfit.

Keeping in line with the festival outfits’ theme, these shorts include a lace trim and fringed hem. Complete this look with a simple black crop top or it’s matching top, also available at Revolve.
Suede isn’t the only ‘70’s trend you’ll find during festival season. Fringed clothes are a great way to bring about the vibes of the earlier decade, and there’s no better way to kick back and relax than boots with fringed detailing.
Not only will this take your Coachella outfit from an 8 to a 10, but it will also keep all that desert sand from caking up on your latest pedi.
No festival wardrobe is finished without a fedora. Not only are these styles essential for the look, but they’re perfect for keeping that sweltering sun at bay. These hats work perfectly with beach waves and fishtail braids.
