For this Finally Friday, I’m going to take a break from my rambles and give you all another wonderfully written piece by Christina Nika Kask, who’s written this wonderful Marsala piece, as well as this piece on self-esteem! Without further ado, here it is 🙂
“Let me Coachella your style”
by Christina Nika
If you are one of those lucky ones who went to Coachella or are going to some other major festival this year, than you must really be excited and already preparing your outfit for the party. It’s not easy being relaxed and stylish at the same time, but that’s what we have festival fashion for! There is nothing more exciting or more wild than Coachella and this is the best opportunity for all the boho style lovers to show off their creativity and inspiration.
Shirts and skirts
Maxi skirts which cling to your hips or those wide, gypsy one which look like you can hide another person underneath – it doesn’t matter, as long as you like them. Mini skirts which show of your legs combined with summer boots and wide shirts are always great to wear.
Headband era started not too long ago and so they are still very popular. Aside from being practical, they look amazing at the same time, drawing attention to you.
You can make your own headband, embedded with false jewels, pearls, and glitter, or simply braid a few plastic flowers in your old band and rock it like you’re a model. Boho style allows you to experiment with everything so think girly, think lace and silk, and think feathers – anything you like you can pull off.
Dresses are essential on every festival, and so if you choose to wear one you will certainly make the right choice. However, in order to stay true to Coachella spirit, we recommend you combine either different styles or different colors.
This is why it would be a good idea to combine your black dresses with really colorful details or patterned accessories. Aztec print is hot this year, so Aztec print infinity scarves or kimonos with brightly colored fingernails will make you stand out from the crowd for sure.
Luckily for all of us, braids are still hot, so you will be able to look stylish and attractive and have a chance to move the hair from your face and neck and get some much needed air in the crowd, when the party kicks off.
Depending on the length of your hair, you can spice up your bob by adding a few smaller braids on the streaks which are around your face, curl it with Cloud Nine micro wand if it’s a short one, or make a French braid out of longer hair and pin it in the back of your head. French and fishtail braids are always a good choice, and if you don’t like it too tight, you can always have it loose and look like a carefree hippie.
The best thing about festival fashion – everything’s allowed and nothing is frowned upon! So go ahead, experiment with different styles, materials, and prints and don’t be afraid to try something new. As long as you feel good while wearing it, you are on the run.
Thanks for reading! See you on Monday 🙂
