The hottest Influencer event, Coachella, of the year wrapped up this week and here’s the fashion debrief.
This year, as with every year, the anticipation was high to see who was was wearing what - and which looks earned them a spot on a Coachella best dressed list.
This year was a little different than usual. Whilst previous years have seen festival chic in its prime, (we all remember Vanessa Hudgens’ yearly fits right?), 2023 has seen a huge decrease in experimental festival fashion.
Many celebs, notably including Kylie and Kendall Jenner, opted for a lot less feather and glitter this year, swapping it for more basic jeans and a t-shirt combos. Whilst effective in solidifying their celeb status, it was a little underwhelming.
However, there were still many attendees this year that did not come to play. Although straying from the infamous boho looks from previous years, this year we saw guests taking a twist on festival fits that proved that we are truly stepping into a new era of festival fashion.
Stepping out of her usual Chicken Shop Dates and into Coachella with style, was none other than Amelia Dimz.
Her look ties three very bold pieces together seamlessly; Cowboy boots, a tartan skirt and a cream zip up blouse. With her hair and makeup left achieving a more simple elegance, her look is the perfect combo paired with these three staple pieces.
Starting off with one of the best dressed of the whole festival, it’s Teyana Taylor, who was among many of the stars to attend the Heineken House in Indio, California. From day one, her outfits were fun, edgy and experimental.
Rocking up in a camel-coloured ankle-length jacket paired with green cargos tucked into some knee-high boots, her fit offered a fun twist on throwback festival fashion.
In another fit, she wore a leather-linked bralette, oversized black pants, and Balenciaga Crocs, that offered a much edgier take on her day one outfit.
Her experimentation with colours, textures and accessories gave a modern twist on recent festival trends, (especially those day-one boots… almost reminiscent of wellies at Leeds fest), and she was arguably one of the best dressed at the whole festival.
If you didn’t know who Tasha was before Coachella weekend, it’s likely you do now. Her outfits certainly seem to have been favoured online - and it’s easy to see why.
Her best fit from the weekend is easily her full blue crochet fit by London-based designer CROLAGE, paired with some blue cowboy boots and a bag to match.
Simple yet bold, her look is a clear fan favourite and is made even better by her choice to support an independent clothing brand.
Continuing to fly the flag for the British girls at Coachella, is the duo Sophia and Cinzia, who are British influencers and hosts of the podcast The Girl’s Bathroom.
Cinzia stunned with her day two outfit, which featured the main event of a bralette top made completely out of different crystals and stones. The custom piece, by the brand JÉBLANC, was the main focus of her look, and she chose to pair it with a simple denim skirt.
The clothes combined with her hair, makeup and accessories completely tied the look together and created a stunning, ethereal look.
Sophia on the other hand was blowing people away with what she wore on day one; A bright wrap-around dress that was paired with chunky earrings and bangles. Everything about this screams fun, and is a breath of fresh air in the midst of all the casual celeb fits.
The patterns and bold colours truly capture the festival essence, whilst also serving an early 2000s vibe.
TikTok’s Irish IT girl, Olivia Neill, didn’t disappoint at her first-ever Coachella. Achieving the perfect balance between elegant and youthful, Olivia wore a red two-piece with a sarong-style skirt paired with knee-high black boots and a black purse.
The texture of the two pieces completely elevated the entire look. She managed to achieve an amalgamation of simple, edgy and elegant styles that was fit for both the desert and Instagram - a perfect first Coachella fit.
Whilst probably the most casual out of our selection of the best Coachella looks, both Drew’s day one and two looks were perfect examples of achieving a ‘’I just threw this on’’ look whilst keeping it fun and perfectly accessorised.
Her day two look stood out the most for the staple denim vest. Paired with some white cargo pants and platform Converse - it was nothing too crazy but still maintained a fun sense of stylishness that Coachella is all about. 2023 is certainly the year of denim everything.
This one could be a love or hate situation, but it’s safe to say that his look has won many people over. Wearing a long leather skirt, paired with a leather waistcoat, Denzel’s look was something a little different.
Perfectly accessorised with sunglasses and a singular necklace, his fit is immediately elevated to encapsulate early noughties realness.
