The one word on everyone’s lips = Coachella. Giving us serious FOMO with that Beyoncé performance (AKA the headline act of the actual century), the festival’s first weekend also served up more street style inspo than we could handle, making us mega excited for the summer ahead. Need a fashion break-down? From bumbags to bandos, here are the five festival trends with main-stage status, as seen at Coachella 2018.
1. The Bumbags
Having raved about bumbags since the start of the season, we’re pleased to report that the throwback trend of SS18 has now made its way onto the festival circuit – as demonstrated by these main-stage movers. Belted designs in all-black everything proved to be the popular choice for the Coachella crowd, while mermaid sequins and metallics also made waves during the so-fire weekend.
2. The Face Jewels
Move over, make-up – face jewels have officially taken over festival season. Stick-on sparkles and glitter-dusted skin was the clear favourite at Coachella 2018, making field-day ‘fits feel all the more magical. Wanna go even extra? Tap tips from one festival-goer and rock ‘em your bod with a bikini top.
3. The Cat-Eye Sunglasses
Once the go-to fave of old-school Hollywood starlets, cat-eye sunglasses have had a modern makeover for SS18 – and these Coachella babes were all over them. But forget going for all-out glam ‘cause this season’s specs are taking a turn for the futuristic – think exaggerated angles, oversized shapes and mirrored lenses.
4. The Bandos
Great for fixing up your festival ‘do as well as disguising dry-shampooed roots, bandos were big news at Coachella 2018. Retro prints and florals brought all the vintage vibes to campsite get-ups, while tropical palms made the it-accessory feel much more now.
5. The Statement Earrings
Statement earrings = the trend that we can’t get enough of. From punchy pom-poms and tiered tassels to supersized Scandi shapes, shoulder-grazing styles lit up the lobes of the festival fash pack, showing us that they’re staying put for the summer ahead.
