Five Festival Trends We Saw At Coachella

The festival-celebrity-Instagram mecca of Coachella began over Easter long weekend in the USA, and with Groovin The Moo kicking off next weekend, we wanted to take a quick look at five trends that were big in the desert this year…

Flower crowns
Yep, they’re still a thing. But they’ve shrunk. Big, gaudy, OTT, “I-wore-this-so-I-blend-in-outside-my-ex-boyfriend’s-house” flower crowns are out. Subtle, sweet flower crowns are in. Like this one worn by New Zealand blogger Victoria Hadlow:


Space Buns
It doesn’t seem to matter exactly how you wear this Miley Cyrus/Jim Carrey/Baby Spice style – half-up, half-down buns; two French braids beginning at the forehead gathered into big, bouncy buns; two French braids beginning at the nape of the neck and working up into buns, or the classic as modelled by, er, model, Jessica Hart (pictured with Poppy Delevigne):


Again, it doesn’t seem to matter how you style them, from full bodysuit to under torn jeans or daisy dukes; plain, rainbow or bedazzled, fishnets are hot right now. Hailey Baldwin made the case for bejewelled cutoff fishnets by using them to dress up previously ‘daggy’ double denim:


Glitter roots in your hair, glitter cheeks instead of highlighter… even glitter tits. Shine, sparkle and get your craft herpes on with all-over glitter. Girls are now taking ‘free the nipple’ to new heights with a trend known on the internet as ‘disco tits’ – stick-on jewels and body glitter in lieu of bras or tops. Are you game?

All Lace Everything

Lucky it’s warm in Australia, because all of these trends give little coverage… the lace trend is no different. Lace dresses are a big deal this year. Team them with standard-issue underwear (even high-waisted ‘granny’ pants are A-OK) or a bodysuit and some ankle boots and your festival look is sorted.
