Festival Wear with H&M x Coachella
For two weekends in an area just outside Palm Springs thousands of music fans and hip, trendy people descend on a polo field for Coachella. It really kicks off the festival season in America and is so popular it has now grown to two weekends instead of just one (it sells out every year in minutes).
What’s so great about it? It’s three days of music underneath the bright sunshine. There are amazing art installations and, if you’re a fan, organic California grown avocados (trust me they’re amazing). Along with with die-hard music fans of every genre, there are celebrities, aspiring models and people who go to be seen, which means tons of style to be shared. There’s no shortage of “Best Coachella Outfits” in the days following.
This year H&M released a collection, H&M x Coachella, to celebrate the style that comes along not only with festival wear, but Coachella itself. There are plenty of items to mix and match for the perfect festival look even if you’re not heading to the coolest party April has ever seen. The collection is rather hit or miss when browsing online as most pieces were sold out but when I ventured to my local H&M they had plenty in-store for those interested. The items, for the most part, are actually really comfortable and stylish. They easily could be integrated into any spring wardrobe. There’s even some for the guys!
I chose a few of my favorite pieces and put together some festival inspired looks that work for both festivals and spring in general. Just please, do not buy a flower crown. Still not convinced Coachella is the coolest? Here’s a playlist featuring some the best of this years lineup made by yours truly over on Spotify
