Earlier this week I covered all of the clothes that were worn at Coachella, but we all know that it’s the accessories that really make the outfit. So before you’re sent out to the desert for Coachella Weekend Number Two (or maybe just out into the streets of your hood this summer) welcome to part duex.
The Wide Brim Hat
Festival goers swapped their flower crowns for wide brim hats this year to keep the hot desert sun at bay.
From platform, to western, to lace up, ankle boots were the name of the game for the ladies of Coachella.
Get your ankle boot on in the Nicora Wynonna Studded Ankle Boot, the ZouXou Block-Heeled Boot in Black Embossed Snake, Brother Vellies Kaya Boot in Flamingo, the R.M. Williams Millicent Boot, Everlane’s Suede Heel Boot, Beyond Skin’s Metal Grey Frida Boots or the Women’s Work Boots in Black by Wills London from Modavanti.
Beyond ankle boots sneakers were the go-to chic option for sporty and boho looks alike.
To keep your feet happy on those long festival days in Etiko’s Organic Fairtrade Sneakers HI tops Black & White, Matt & Nat’s Bonaventure – White, Nae Vegan’s Milan Micro, Veja’s Esplar Silver Leather Sneaker from Accompany or the Ethletica Fair Trainer White Cap Lo Cut in Light Clay.
And, of course, strappy sandals and gladiators made an appearance as the long standing festival go-to.
You, too, can get the look in Nisolo’s Serena Sandal, the Onika Wrap Sandal from Enrou, Bhava Studios’ Carmen Lace-Up Sandal, the Meyelo Penda Beaded Leather Sandal from Accompany, or Sseko Designs’ Black Leather Wrap Sandal.
Eyewear shape of choice ranged from round, to cateye, to aviators and lenses came in every color under the sun.
Protect your eyes from those desert rays in the Dharma Radiance Shade in Desert Rose, the Dharma Kamala Shade, Sustainable Facewear O-Face Skateboard Wood Sunglasses in Pink Mirror, DIFF Charitable Eyewear Rose – Two Tone – Gold Mirror Polarized Lens, the Blue Planet Wright Sunglasses, Dick Moby’s AMS Sunglasses, Blue Planet’s Bailey Sunglasses, Finlay & Co’s Draycott Sunglasses in Tortoise from Gather & See, and if you can’t wear the Canby Cactus Sunglasses from Schwood (made from dried cactus skeleton) in the desert, then I don’t know what kind of world we’re living in.
Festival goers chose the traditional crossbodies and backpacks to carry all their festival garb, but also stuck in a few updated fanny packs for a hands-free carry-all option.
To store all your festival goodies try the Yami Backpack in Slate from Raven & Lily, the Tribe Alive Roundie Saddle Bag, Sseko Designs’ Saddle Crossbody Bag, Matt & Nat’s Pacific Backpack, Fashionable’s Mini Tigist Cross Body, the Pocket Bum Bag bye Hipsters for Sisters, or Enat’s Crossbody.
And because a scarf is always a good accessory in the desert — can be worn as a hair accessory, around your neck or used to block the sand during those pesky sandstorms, I’m throwing some in for good measure. Check out the DTSLD Cotton Paisley Bandana In Black, Cuyana’s Silk Striped Scarf or one of Peace Treaty’s Silk Bandana’s from Accompany to round out your festival outfit.
