If you think Coachella is all about the music then you’re clearly mistaken. Fashion took the front seat this year in Indio and set the standard of what’s in store for summer 2016. Here’s a guide with the help of the Wishbone App on all things trending for summer fashion that was influenced by the looks from Coachella.
1. Chokers Over Flower Crowns
Taylor Swift got it right. Chokers are the new flower crowns. They’re reminiscent of the 90’s as are a lot of the trends making headway for the summer. It gives a look that added edge. You can go for a classic choker or add on a layered necklace to make your jewelry more pronounced. However you decide to wear it, make sure it’s part of your summer wardrobe.
2. Knotted Rainbows
Braids have been getting more and more popular specifically because of the Kardashian/Jenner family. Despite some criticism, they’ve each sported the look many times which has spread like wildfire in the fashion community. But Coachella style one upped the look by using braids on colored hair. Queen of Wigs Kylie Jenner did a rainbow wig with the french braid and 66% of voters were all for it. So if you’re feeling the colored hair trend, add in a few braids and you will be the hair goals of the season!
3. The Vintage Shades
The round glasses are a very vintage look coming back from the 60’s hippie trends. Which goes perfectly with the Coachella vibes. These shades are everywhere now, especially the blue-tinted frames. Embrace your inner hippie by putting away the aviators and working the round sunglasses!
4. Got Buns?
Hair buns are all the rage right now. It’s a seemingly simply look that you can use to make your look be polished or that perfect amount of messy. You can fashion these high buns with half your hair down and one or two buns at the top of your head. Or you can mimic Kendall Jenner’s look and do two high buns. Either way, you’ll be looking mega stylish.
5. Go Mono
Although Wishbone voters are all for the classic bikini look, monokinis are beginning to make a move in fashion. There are various different cuts and styles that can maintain the sexy look of a bikini but provides a more unique look. Stand out while poolside by going for the monokini. Just be careful of those tan lines!
6. Biker Chic
