Who else had social media feeds full of sunny, happy Coachella 2015 revellers while they were stuck working in our mediocre semi-sunny climes? Well, we have a few more for you… But they’re all for the greater good! We’ve sought out some of the most fabulous styling details seen at Coachella to inspire your forth-coming summer wardrobe…
What a brave stylista we have here, in her flesh-coloured American Apparel bodysuit. Not a look I will be trying anytime in this lifetime, but if you have the body confidence, then why not? The element I’m loving here is her body harness. These are a fabulous way to jazz up any outfit – I wear my little Primark number with a Topshop T-shirt dress and blazer, but these babies look fab over a vest with jeans, a body con dress, or some summer swimwear. Claudia Pink has an amazing range of body chains, harnesses and plates. Each one is hand-made in her studio, and she is always happy to make custom designed orders. How beautiful is this body chain with the jewelled centre piece? As well as what is available on her website, she posts lots of sneaky previews of what’s coming on her Instagram, which is well worth a follow (claudiapink).
Ooh, who is this familiar face? It’s only Hollywood hottie Kate Bosworth. A staple guest at all of the best summer festivals, Bosworth never looks anything less than the total cool girl she is. Rocking a light, bright look in white and neutrals with a hint of aztec detailing, this is the girl we all want to dress like. This little jacket is just gorgeous. The cropped sleeves and waistband are the perfect proportions for summers, and I love the beautiful lace detailing. Isabel Marant always rocks this vibe so well for Spring/Summer, and this white denim jacket from her Etoile collection is gorgeous. Just roll up the sleeves for that relaxed, insouciant attitude. I don’t know about you lot, but whenever I’m looking for a good cover up, Zara is always my first stop. Not always the most purse-friendly high street option, but for diversity they have it all! This broderie anglaise jacket is brilliant festival fare (as long as you’re not too precious about keeping it pristine), or for a bit more colour and fluidity, how about this folk-inspired kimono ? This is going straight onto my wish list (along with a holiday to somewhere exotic).
Now, it ain’t a festival without a good floral crown. I have a serious headwear obsession – flowers, feathers, flowers AND feathers, cat ears, rabbit ears… I want them all! This girl gives us the perfect example of how to brighten up a simple, monochrome outfit with a bit of colourful headwear. Crown and Glory are my one-stop shop for all things floral – they have everything, from huge outlandish crowns (hello Oversized Rococo Crown), to delicate flower-embellished headbands, in pastels, brights, glitter, and even a bit of goth. If feathers are more your thing, then head over to Rouge Pony’s Etsy shop for the most fantastical selection of headpieces (as well as some amazing feathered shoulder and neckpieces). I might not be going to any festivals this year, but I intend to rock this tribal headdress at my local beer garden on any sunny day I can catch.
