Quick question: is fashion okay?
star-y night

If Coachella was a thing in 1995...

From the New York Fashion Week to the Oscars to the MET Gala to Coachella, there first six months of the year lend themselves to being the fashion events of the year. While the outfits worn at Coachella may not be straight off the runway, the festival does provide an abundance of sartorial excellence.  

Festival style is often associated with denim shorts and wellies but given that Coachella takes place in a desert and not some country man's farm for the weekend, the event opens itself to a wide variety of styles and personalities. 

Unsurprisingly, the Coachella fashion trends from week one were bold, stylish and perfectly executed. From fringe to neon, this year's festival attendees did not hold back so much so that Coachella has now become just as much about the fashion as it has about the music and art.  

So whether you're looking for new summer fashion trends or just want to give yourself a serious case of FOMO, keep scrolling for your Coachella 2019 style report.
