Coachella is an electrifying music festival that spans two weekends from April 14-23 in Indio, California. Every year, celebrities, influencers and fans from around the world gather together for an immersive musical experience. 

Although the festival aims to highlight musical talent, it also exemplifies high-quality fashion. At Coachella, new brands are represented alongside high-end designers. The outfit choices at Coachella this year have been a fusion of colors and free-spirited individuality. Vibrant patterns and glamor inundated the audience as each individual brought their own sparkle to the event.

One can see hints of styles from the 90s as well as recent trends such as maxi skirts, sequin-embedded dresses, cowboy hats and cycling shorts, each representing every attendee’s unique aesthetic. This year set high expectations for Coachella and sets the bar high for attendees in the upcoming years.

Hailey Bieber

Hailey Bieber is an American model and social media star. She’s worked for numerous luxury brands over the years including Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren. 

With a low-rise denim mini skirt and a cropped scoop neck white tank top, Hailey Bieber has taken Coachella back to the 90s. 

She accessorized the outfit with stacked gold necklaces in all sizes. ]

Her hair, glossy and slicked-back, and the black rectangle framed sunglasses that lie on the bridge of her nose give her the effortless “clean girl” look. A black mini bag hangs on her shoulder and completes the outfit.

Kendall Jenner

Kendall Jenner is a fashion model and reality star who began modeling at the age of 14. 

Styled by Dani Michelle, Jenner looked stunning in her all-black ensemble. Her outfit was distinct from Coachella’s typical glittery and colorful vibe. 

Like Hailey, she wore the iconic sunglasses and shoulder bag pairing. The waistband on her jeans was removed, a trend from the 90s that complemented her waist. 

Instead of the ankle boots that are commonly seen at Coachella, she wore black leather strappy sandals to create a powerful outfit.

Irina Shayk

Irina  Shayk is a Russian model. Shayk looked flawless and pristine at Coachella, wearing a vintage skirt paired with a Versace top. 

Although both items are from different brands, the skirt and top’s colors blend to look like a matching set. 

To add to the bohemian look, she wore a fun pair of hoop earrings.

Emma Chamberlain

Celebrity icon Emma Chamberlain was dressed in a basic all-white ensemble consisting of white cycling shorts with a matching long-sleeve, tight-fitted top. 

She wore a brown crossbody bag and a pair of sunglasses. 

Although the neutral look is non-traditional for Coachella, Chamberlain executed it perfectly with a pop of dark red lipstick with a touch of glimmer. For nails, she chose white to match her all-white memo.

Becky G

Singer and actress Becky G showcased a glamorous look at Coachella. 

She wore a blue mini-halter dress covered in shiny blue sequins and large rectangular silver earrings that paired well with the look. 

For shoes, she wore dark blue knee-high boots designed by Steve Madden. The boots contrasted well with her shiny ensemble.

Becky switched into a two-piece set while performing, composed of a polished rhinestone-embedded blue top with matching bikini bottoms worn under denim cargo pants.

She wore a blue cowboy hat to complete the look, another common trend at Coachella this year.
