15 Celebrity Looks To Inspire Your Coachella Wardrobe

  • 1 of 15

    As we gear up for the year’s biggest music festival—and prep our desert-bound suitcases—we can’t help but reflect on the standout looks from years past. We’re turning to Coachella veterans, such as Kate Bosworth, Diane Kruger, and Solange Knowles, for outfit inspiration, and recommend you take a page from their stylebooks, too. Keep reading for our fashionable trip down memory lane.

    Kate Bosworth-2011

    Of all Bosworth’s incredibly inspiring Coachella looks to choose from, this one is hands-down our favorite. Not only was it our first peek at the now infamous Isabel Marant wedge sneakers, but her Topshop American flag tank and white Current/Elliott shorts set the patriotic style standard for years to come.

    Rosie Huntington-Whiteley-2012

    We loved the British beauty’s bedazzled Christopher Kane cutoffs so much, we found a way to make them ourselves.

    Alexa Chung-2011

    Leave it to the Coachella regular and It-Brit to make crushed velvet work on a scorching spring afternoon. Chung opted for a vintage dress and necklaces paired with patent leather Kurt Geiger sandals.

    Dree Hemingway-2012

    By far one of our favorite looks from the 2012 fest, Hemingway sizzled in Dolce & Gabbana’s matching pepper-print crop top and skirt—a look that would be just at home at one of this year’s pool parties.

    Nicole Richie-2011

    Richie showcased her earthy sensibilities at the Mulberry BBQ when she wore a blouse and bag by the British brand, paired with House of Harlow 1960 sunglasses and denim cutoffs.

    Vanessa Hudgens-2012

    Come festival season, Hudgens is the queen of the flower crown…and the crop top, and the denim short shorts. Simply put: we can always count on the actress to bring her bohemian A-game each year.

    Diane Kruger-2013

    It takes some chutzpah to wear knee-high black suede boots (Kruger’s are H&M) in the desert, but the actress does so aplomb. She gets bonus points for her H&M Rolling Stones tee and printed shorts.

    Katy Perry-2011

    A departure from her more sexed-up sensibilities, Perry’s tiered lace Coachella look is utterly sweet and feminine. We particularly love her polka-dot headscarf (the perfect alternative to a floral crown) and long Chanel pearl necklace.

    Emma Watson-2012

    We were, and still are, completely smitten with Watson’s Mulberry tiger-print playsuit at the brand’s annual BBQ two years ago. The Noah actress accessorized her warm weather look with a brown floppy hat, Mulberry cross-body bag, and Joie sandals.

    Miranda Kerr and Alessandra Ambrosio-2013

    All eyes were on the gorgeous models, both sporting wide-brim hats and sunglasses, at last year’s festival. While Kerr opted for a simple t-shirt and leather shorts combo, Ambrosio was a boho babe in a peasant blouse, fringe vest, and crochet shorts.

    Solange Knowles-2011

    Not surprisingly, the sartorial risktaker was an early adopter of the crop top trend, styling a nude bandeau with a high-waisted print skirt.

    Rita Ora-2013

    The singer’s neon color combo—specifically a Jeremy Scott tee and JW Anderson skirt—made her a standout at the Lacoste L!Ve party.

    Florence Welch-2010

    One could argue Welch—spotted backstage before her performance—was ahead of the curve in her metallic gold shorts.

    Julianne Hough-2013

    If you prefer a fuss-free look, consider Hough your music festival muse. The triple threat checked out her favorite bands in a cream button-down blouse, denim shorts, and lace-up boots.
