When it comes to prepping for Coachella, planning all your outfits is likely at the top of your list of things to do. But if you want to get the most bang for your buck (as we all probably do), investing in pieces you’ll actually wear post–festival season is a wise choice.

Whether it’s footwear, jewelry, or dresses, avoiding one-off buys is best to avoid spending hundreds on outfits you’ll only wear once. But don’t worry—it is possible to shop smart for music festival season. All it takes is choosing a versatile piece (like a dress) that can be styled multiple ways. So in the spirit of saving and looking stylish, we’ve rounded up 16 Coachella-worthy dresses for your consideration. Trust us—you’ll definitely want to re-wear these dresses after you’ve left the festival grounds. 

Any of the dresses above work for a number of summer occasions beyond Coachella. See you at the main stage!

Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour
Senior Market Editor

Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently senior market editor. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2020, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch 90 Day Fiancé.
