It’s week 2 of seeing how we can make celeb style something we can buy and wear, everyday.
Each year, our timelines and feeds are graced with almost every celebrity’s contribution to the Coachella fashion scene, and each year, hundreds of stores cater to the festival-goers need to stand out among the crowd. As a dedication to these one-of-a-kind looks, let’s check out week two’s celebrity style doppelgängers: Julianne Hough, Jourdan Dunn, Emma Roberts and Chanel Iman, Coachella, 2015
Occasion 2: Festivals
Let’s face it, going to a regular, artist-tour and going to a music festival like Coachella or Bonnaroo has its major fashion differences. Each one certainly makes us anxious to find the perfect outfit but we search for these outfits in opposites stores and on opposite sites. For festivals, our style inspiration primarily stems from the celebrities and style icons who attend these events. Chanel Iman, for example, always comes onto the scene with a different, more fashion-forward look than the year before; as she is one of the most talked about style-icons of the festival world.
Since we all don’t have personal stylists who hook us up with newsworthy outfits every year, I’ll share some tips on how to get these looks for a fraction of the effort and the cost.
1) Shop online! Some of your most popular retail stores stock up with music festival wear as soon as the season changes. This means that consumers begin buying all of your favorite pieces months before tickets even go on sale! The best way to avoid the rush and the disappointment is to simply stay inside and shopping online. You get to see absolutely everything they have in stock, including an organized version of the sale section and you won’t have to worry about everyone from your city wearing the same pieces. It makes for a much simpler shopping experience where you finally have the upper-hand.
2) Thrift! The moment you walk into a thrift store, the possibilities suddenly become endless. You can mix and match styles and brands and find a super-unique look that, I’d bet, no one is rocking at Coachella this year. And because you’re spending significantly less than you would retail, you might come out with a few outfits for this year, and the next!
3) Shop out of season! Ideally, shopping out of season for this summer’s music festivals would have been done around September or October– as soon as the festival scene dies down. If you missed out on those sales, this will just get you prepared for next year! Shopping for June in the dead of winter may seem unorthodox but that’s when some of the best items are discovered! When spring comes around and your favorite stores are running out of your sizes and colors, you’ll be glad you spent the money last fall for the perfect outfit!
