Coachella is California's version of NYFW. There, we said it! The theory has been floating around the R29 HQ for some time, and the debate will likely continue until our next Indio visit. If you need convincing, take a look at the seemingly endless
street lawn style coverage from the back-to-back weekends. Because, sure, Phoenix put on a killer set, but did you see that chick on the lawn in that dress? Now that's worth more than just a blog post — it deserves its own Pinterest board cover.
And, just like our East Coast counterparts who diligently set up camp at Lincoln Center, we made it our mission to document the desert's most sartorial-savvy dwellers. Here, we've highlighted four inspiring ensembles we'll be referencing all summer long — and showing you how to copy 'em all. Who needs headliners when you've got head-turners?
