Festival season officially kicked off with Coachella on April 13-22 in California’s Palm Springs. The pinnacle of the festival calendar saw the who’s who of the A list descend onto unmuddy fields to watch the likes of Beyonce, Eminem and techno supremo, Jean Micheal Jarre, whilst also sipping cocktails at glamorous pool parties. Billed as the US’s biggest music festival – it is also the place to purvey fashion and this season’s hottest festival trends. So ‘What’s Hot’ on the festival circuit this Summer 2018. Coachella, or Beychella as DJ Khalid renamed it as she took to the stage, was a hotbed of style so ladies pick your favourites from our list below.
Rihanna, Nicole Richie, Gigi Hadid, Paris Hilton and Whitney Port all wore white on the opening weekend of Coachella. Rihanna wore a double denim white ensemble in a nod to the sixties while Nicole’s floaty off the shoulder white dress was from her own festival friendly range, House of Harlow. Note to self… only wear if weather forecast is looking good and be careful of spillages – all day and night.
There’s not a festival on the planet without a couple of boho fashion aficionados. This year was a lot more sleek than boho chic. However, supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio did not let the side down with cute crochet boy shorts, a denim bustier and fringe denim jacket. Olivia Culpo also opted for lace, fringing and cowboy boots while model Romee Strijd added colourful bands to her boho braids.
Man up ladies. Utilitarian army pants were the order of the day for Kendall Jenner, Behati Prinsloo, Shay Mitchell and Rihanna – proving that doing it like the boys means comfort and style in one whilst avoiding any embarrassing knicker flashes. If you want to be in the “combat army” wear yours with a tiny crop to show off your assets and top up your tan at the same time.
Kylie Jenner, Amber Rose, Normani and Teyana Taylor slipped into black, orange and patterned skin tight onesies to show off their fabulous figures on the Coachella circuit. The winner of the style stakes here has to be Amber Rose – whose brightly coloured, party appropriate choice was a real head turner. Although a mention has to go to brave new mum Kylie, who slipped into a black Fashion Nova unitard less than 6 weeks after giving birth to baby girl Stormi.
Flashing a bit of flesh is all too common on the festival scene. Itsy bitsy bikinis, bandeaus, crop tops and crochet cover ups were favoured by the likes of model of the moment Kaia Geiber (taking a much needed “disco nap” here) and rapper Iggy Azalea with her Christian Dior top, denim cut-offs and white Vans. The most risqué of the day was Victoria’s Secret model Jasmine Tookes who wore a bikini under a silver crochet cover up dress.
