Coachella Packing: The Perfect Outfits For Every Headlining Act

It's go time, girls! Here at R29, Operation Indio is very much underway, and we can't wait to announce what we have in store for you, very soon. For now though, there's no time to lose, when it comes to planning outfits that will shut it down at the Coachella grounds.
Instead of doing the same old snoozy slideshow you're sure to see everywhere else, though, we got inspired by the sounds and styles of the headlining acts (and a few of our other faves) to bring you a potpourri of looks to rock at live music's finest fest. Click through to get styled in a handful of killer outfits as hot as the temp is sure to be—no sartorial silence allowed.

The Black Keys
By Friday, you've thoroughly checked out your weekend pad, unpacked, and hopefully soaked up some scorching sun, poolside! But come nightfall, it will be time to bring it with a badass look full of studs, and perhaps a heavy cat eye.

How perfect is this For Love & Lemons lace-fringed duster? It will most definitely be stuffed in our sure-to-be overflowing bag!

Clockwise from left: For Love & Lemons Black Kimono, $179, available at The Trend Boutique; Topshop Knitted Bra Crop Top, $64, available at Topshop; Oracle Fox Long for Love Shorts, $69.50, available at Billabong; Sam Edelman Pax Studded Boot, $220, available at Need Supply Co.; Benefit BADgal liner waterproof, $20, available at Benefit Cosmetics; Unearthen Sphere Ring, $215, available at Unearthen.

Florence + the Machine
Our ever-ethereal girl crush doesn't take the stage until Sunday, but we'll be counting down the minutes until we can bust out this number (and hear "Shake It Out" live). No performer's style better epitomizes the essence of Coachella than Ms. Welch's, and if you're not rocking lace, then floral is the way to roll.

Zimmerman has tons of frilly little numbers that are right on the money. Top your look off with a floral crown, et voilà, you've channeled your inner bohemian goddess, and are ready for your Street Style closeup (you'd better believe we'll be there, snapping away!).

Clockwise from left: Nasty Gal Jesse Canteen Bag, $145, available at Nasty Gal; Graz x Ellery Batter Sunglasses, $356, available at Eye Goodies; Zimmermann Devoted Panel Swing Dress, $245, available at Zimmermann; Tokyo Lux Hand Crafted Flower Crowns, $28, available at Tokyo Lux; Sendra Leather Kilty Ankle Boot, $498, available at Free People.

Dr. Dre & Snoop Dog
Just like the tee so clearly states, this show will be all about getting reckless and out-loud rapping to old-school sounds like nobody's watching. This look has gangsta (in a complimentary way) written all over it!

Clockwise from left: Converse White Studded Chucks, $240, available at Bess NYC; Le Specs x Henry Holland Flattop Sunglasses, $89, available at 80’s Purple; Billabong Reckless Surfer, $34, available at Billabong; Mata Hari x Love-Made Fanny Bag in Black Speckled Tweed, $45.95, available at Karmaloop; Current/Elliott The Boyfriend Star Denim Shorts, $178, available at Revolve Clothing.

Radiohead
We strongly advocate bobbing your head to these trippy sounds in a whimsical, tie-dyed dress dashed with a wide-brimmed (and crystal bedazzled) hat.

Gypsy '05 is our main Coachella squeeze for this vibe, this year, to the point that it was tough to choose just one frock. Oh, and great news gals: The Isabel Marant Dicker boots are back in stock!

Clockwise from left: Little Doe Headstone Crystal Hat, $300, available at Reformation; Gypsy 05 Carine Sheer Maxi Dress, $198, available at Gypsy 05; Alternative Apparel The Journeyman, $135, available at Revolve Clothing; House of Harlow 1960 Antler Bangle, $95, available at Boutique To You; Isabel Marant Dicker Suede Ankle Boots, $475, available at MyTheresa.

Santigold
Santigold has wild style like no other, so we thought we'd give you an out-there set of poppy items to don when busting a serious move to her tunes. Our favorite part: the Pinky Panther ring that goes on your little finger for an extra bit of unexpected funk.

Clockwise from left: Pour La Victoire Narissa High Top Metallic Sneakers, $195, available at Shopbop; Sass & bide Take Two printed silk-blend playsuit, $220.50, available at The Outnet; NYX Glitter Cream Palette, $5.50, available at NYX Cosmetics; Pinky Panthers Collection Tiger Pinky Ring, $225, available at Pinky Panthers; See by Chloe Twirl Crossbody with Flap, $325, available at Revolve Clothing.
