It goes without saying that even though you're not in your 20s anymore doesn't mean you can't look completely Coachella-ready.

Luckily, a slew of over-30 celebs have served up just that in recent years. In fact, they nailed their polished festival dressing, proving you don't have to show a ton of skin to look completely appropriate for the occasion. (Of course, if you'd like to, then by all means do!)
