THE DIY Coachella 2015 Style Guide

Musicians, celebrities, music-lovers, peace-pipe-passers and socialites alike all united under the California sky to celebrate the chicest music festival around - Coachella 2015! Besides a Bieber chokehold and a Drake-Madonna make out (yes, we are still watching that on loop), music festivals, of course, are about the music fashion. Coachella has transformed from music festival to style guide, with labels like Moschino and MAC serving up this year’s chicest brand parties.

We don’t know about you, but nothing gets us more inspired to channel our inner Boho-chic than flower crowns, flash tattoos … and let’s be honest, Kendall Jenner. This season couldn’t be more perfect to find your festival look as runways have been throwing it back to yesteryear with 70s inspired leather fringe and paisley prints all season long. From retailers like Revolve Clothing to Forever 21, ASOS to H&M our inboxes and Instagram feeds have been inundated with sales, look books and how-to guides for this year’s festival season. 

No matter what your style, size or spending limit may be– we here at The Chic know there is a festival-inspired you waiting to be set free (into the flower fields)! How do we know, you may ask? Well, aside from braiding our hair and making hemp necklaces, we’ve been busy this past week pulling together the absolute chicest Coachella looks for each of you!

Check out our favorite finds, and tell us which cool-girl style inspired you to channel your inner flower child, Boho goddess, Penny Lane-loving self.

Atlanta de Cadenet - Miss Daisy, Driving Me Crazy

Miss Daisy, Driving Me Crazy. Just like ‘92, the daisy print is once again all the rage! We are obsessed with this sexy, yet sweet modern two-piece on Atlanta de Cadenet. The delicate daisy details take this effortless and slimming look to the next level.

Accessorized appropriately, a dress like this can easily take you from day to night - keeping you looking and feeling cool - all summer long.

Gigi Hadid - Navajo Princess Penny Lane

Navajo Princess Penny Lane. Whether it’s the runway or a music festival, Gigi Hadid seems to rule the social scene no matter where she goes. It-Girl of the moment took a page out of our book, and turned to e-tailer ASOS for several of her Coachella looks. Fashionable and affordable? We just think this that is so chic!

Jourdan Dunn. Sporty & Spice, & Everything Not So Nice

Sporty and Spice, and Everything Not So Nice. While it’s not your typical free spirit festival fashion, Jourdan Dunn totally killed it all week in Moschino, with this look topping the list as one of our Coachella favorites. Her effortless and sporty take on festival fashion has us putting her in a league all her own. 

Not everyone can pull this off, but if you’ve got a little of that bad girl edge - like Miss Dunn - then this easily re-creatable look is a must-do for you.

Forever21 Longline Chiffon Baseball Jersey, $29.90

Dr Martens Core Pascal White/Black 8 Eye Ankle Boots, $162.00

Katy Perry - Sheer Beauty Flower Power

Sheer Beauty Flower Power. If this isn’t the definition of sheer beauty, we don’t know what it is. Miss Perry served up some serious chicness in this sheer black floral number. The hair, the lips, the body – there’s really no wrong, and only a whole lot of right, going on here.

Lucky for you, this look has For Love & Lemons written all over it! The brand that brings you slinky, sheer and sexy all put together in one chic package. Opt for a chunkier heel to keep things on funky and comfy all festival long.

For Love Of Lemons Birds of Paradise Maxi Dress, $299

ASOS New Look Wide Fit Tiny Black Heeled Sandals, $45

Kate Bosworth - Clean Slate Kate

Clean Slate Kate. Tanned legs and a berry-pink pucker make this all-white ensemble pop, offering a clean slate amidst a sea of flares and fringe. This simple but memorable festival look uses clean lines and minimalist details to highlight Kate’s incredible gams, just as much as her chic Cali style. 

Sticking with a monochromatic structured mini and oversized button-up is a must-do this festival season. Not to mention, both pieces are easy to incorporate back into your wardrobe long after the days of flower power and festival fun.

ASOS Oversized Boyfriend Shirt With Curved Hem, $50  

MLV Bonnie Sequin Skirt, $239
