Coachella may be over for another year, but festival season has only just begun. We still have Glastonbury in the UK and Splendour in the Grass in Byron Bay to look forward to, so we asked editorial director at The Outnet, Rebecca Tay, for her pick of the top five trends to come out of Coachella. Whether you’re headed to a festival or not, Coachella tends to dictate what you’ll start to see pop up everywhere (flower crowns didn’t just appear out of nowhere).
Tay told Who What Wear Australia exclusively, “My Instagram feed over the last two weeks was ALL about Coachella, and everyone looked incredible! There are definitely tried-and-tested favourites when it comes to festival fashion, but this year, more than ever before, it was all about embracing key trends in your own way. Here are my picks for the biggest trends to try for festival season.”

“White crochet may seem like a strange choice for spending the day outdoors in a massive field, but for some reason it just works. I’d keep the look grounded and festival-appropriate with ankle boots, a mini brown bag and loose, tousled hair.”
“A cross-body bag is the ultimate music festival essential. No one likes dancing with a clutch, and in my opinion, the smaller, the better. All you need is your money, ID, iPhone, lip gloss and mascara, right?”
“Alongside chokers (which, according to Taylor Swift, have replaced flower crowns as the must-have jewellery to wear at Coachella), flat boots or ultra-cool sneakers are a festival must. While Glastonbury is about Hunter wellies, Coachella is all about styles with a bit of embellishment.”
“Off-the-shoulder tops have been having a moment for a while now, but they still look fresh to me and were a mainstay at Coachella. Embrace their ’70s appeal with a boho-inspired style, or stand out in a printed piece in eye-catching colours.”
“I love co-ords. They feel so contemporary and they’re the perfect styles to pack for any vacation—just throw in a few additional separates in corresponding hues and you’ve instantly got four outfits.”
