Every Outfit You Need For Coachella — All In One Place

After a winter so long we didn't think we'd ever see the sun again, the light at the end of the tunnel is near — and Ariana Grande is standing in it, bopping to 7 Rings in front of 126,000 screaming millennials.

Oversize It
Coachella is the perfect time to try out something you wouldn't normally wear. For example, experimenting with the oversized, androgynous trend that's been taking over street style over the last year. Throw on a worn out vintage tee with a midi skirt, but, don't tuck it in. Add a chunky pair of platforms and you've got it mastered.

A Classic Choice
You can never, and we mean never, go wrong with a little white blouse and a really great pair of jeans. Add on a pair of chunky, Teva-like sandals and you've got a festival-ready look that you can wear long after Ari's last song.

Flower Power
We tossed away our flower crowns about six Coachellas ago, and instead, embraced floral print in the form of long, feminine sundresses. Pair one with some desert-ready combat boots and you're good to go.

Edge It Out
While most are hitting the polo fields in flowy dresses and crop tops galore, opt for an edgier look (it is a rock festival, after all) by pairing a plaid bikini top with a contrasting plaid midi skirt.

Break It Up
Don't forget a two-piece set, period. And to make yours more equipped for the Indio heat, we're suggesting one made of a lightweight linen fabric. To top it off, add a pair of colorful sneakers to give your Coachella look the finishing touch it needs.

Don't Forget Your Layers
Palm Springs is notorious for being super hot during the day, but cooling down significantly post-sunset. Make the transition from day-to-night an easy one by packing a fun, rock 'n roll-inspired vest to throw on for any post-show activities.

A Swimsuit, But Make It Fashion
What's more prepared for a hot, April day than a swimsuit? And since many Coachella-goers end up spending the entire weekend at a pool party rather than the actual event, this one-piece-midi-skirt combo is a winning choice.

Keep It Simple
A good festival outfit doesn't have to be complicated. Really, it can be as easy as pairing a band t-shirt with cut-offs and a classic pair of strappy sandals. You know you'll look cute, be comfortable and survive the heat. Check, check, check!
