Desert Vibes: Coachella Style & Music Guide

Heading to Coachella this April, or are you just looking to add some Bohemian style to your spring and summer wardrobe?

When shopping for 60’s and 70’s style clothing it’s all about the details. Look for…

  • Maxi skirts and dresses
  • Crop tops
  • Bell bottoms
  • Denim cutoffs
  • Kimonos
  • Ankle boots with metal hardware
  • Platform wedges
  • Floppy wide brim hats
  • Fringe handbags
  • Embellished belts
  • Round sunnies
  • Layered and beaded jewelry
  • Wrap around bracelets and necklaces
  • Jewelry with stones and crystals
  • Chiffon, suede, and gauze like fabrics
  • Lace, fringe, and floral detail

Boho / hippie chic has been my go to style for a while now. After shopping at my favorite stores and on my favorite websites, I like to make my outfit truly one-of-a-kind, and one of the best ways to do this is to add something no one else has. That’s where vintage shopping comes in. My favorite places to score the best vintage finds in Los Angeles are Hidden Treasures in Topanga Canyon, and Wasteland in Santa Monica or Melrose. I’m also a big fan of The Salvation Army in Santa Monica. It’s not your typical goodwill store, you can hit the jackpot when it comes to finding really unique vintage clothing and accessories, (my sister found a vintage Dior blazer), but it can be hit or miss.
