Coachella

Coachella
Mixing work and play is always a pleasure for the WhoWhatWear.com team, and happily, we were able to indulge in our cherished pastime this past weekend. Early Friday morning, we ventured outside our Beverly Hills-bubble and headed 130 miles east to the tenth annual Coachella Music Festival. Obviously, we were thrilled to immerse ourselves in the sounds (chiefly Ghostland Observatory, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Morrissey) and contemplate the trippy light installations, but our main objective was to track the festival's fashion!

With sunscreen slathered on our faces and gladiator sandals strapped on our feet, we spent three days examining thousands of music enthusiasts and separating the true tastemakers from the run-of-the-mill hipsters. As we're always interested in street style, we asked our favorite fashion-forward attendees to answer a little questionnaire. Our specific queries were simple, we just wanted to know three key things: WHO they were, WHAT shows they were excited about seeing, and most importantly, what they decided to WEAR to the festival.

Overall, we were quite impressed with the majority of this year's Coachella ensembles. Aside from a few impractically avant-garde approaches (think: Native American headdresses and knee-high, hot pink fur boots), there were so many darling looks on display. We spied loads of vintage floral rompers, pale blue pairs of jean cutoffs, and zingy-hued sandals, alongside several other excellent wardrobe pieces, which are showcased in today's lineup. We hope that you'll enjoy the final compilation of outfits and let them serve as inspiration for the rest of your summer concert-going season! -Jessica Amento, additional reporting by Kelly Agnew
