It’s that time of year again! Coachella 2017 is right around the corner!
I was pretty overwhelmed last year when I went for my first time. I scoured the Internet, Pinterest…everything looking for what to wear, what to bring, etc. I don’t want you guys looking all over like I did so I decided to put together a guide. The Ultimate Guide to Coachella 2017! Let’s start out with the most important – what to wear 😉
I want you to hit Coachella 2017 looking your best! That means planning outfits early so you’re not left with leftovers at your favorite stores. Here are some of my outfit must-haves:
High Waisted Shorts
Basically just a must-have all year long. These puppies are going to be your best friend this festival season! I personally love the classic denim, but you can go colored, crocheted – whatever your style! Dress them up or down, or wear with your favorite…
With the hot sun and dry weather, a bikini top is perfect for staying cool (and working on your tan). I like to opt for one with a little extra detail, like the shells on this cute halter from KAOHS.
Probably the most important part of your whole outfit! You’re going to be walking around ALL day long. You want something cute but also comfy. I highly recommend testing out your shoes first to make sure they don’t kill your feet before leaving for Coachella. The cute pom pom sandals passed the tests with flying colors!
So you have your outfit planned out, now what? Accessorize that shiz! This means lots of rings, bracelets, necklaces – pick and choose your favorites, then layer! I chose some chunky rings, a few Pura Vida Bracelets and a watch to keep the time out in the desert.
WHAT TO BRING
Wondering what to pack for your weekend in the desert? Here’s a couple necessities to make your life a little bit better:
Baby wipes – for when it gets a little too dusty out there and you need a quick clean
Camera/Polaroid – I recommend this Instax camera for great photos
Phone charger – a MUST for your weekend. Or opt for charging backpack like this one from BirkSun
Sunscreen – need I say more? It’s hot in the desert
Bandana – for the dust storms, this is a real thing folks!
Toilet paper – you might laugh, but the only time I got to use TP in the bathrooms was when I actually brought my own
Water bottle – there’s free refill stations everything so stay hydrated!
Dry shampoo – this one was truly a lifesaver out in heat and dust
TIPS & TRICKS
So you’re all packed and ready to go! Just a few more tips before you jet off to Weekend 1!
Bring CASH – you don’t want to be stuck with high ATM fees or in long ass lines all day
Know the lineup and PLAN – I can’t tell you how many times we almost missed someone because we didn’t leave enough time to get over to the stage
Buy a shuttle pass – seriously worth the money guys
