This key Coachella styling trend sees black bralet tops paired with Indiana print bottoms for a look of the summertime globe-trotter. Sheer fabrics or trims add interest to simple tops, while frilly wovens introduce movement. Tribal fashion is introduced with ethnic-inspired patterns repeated on shorts, miniskirts and casual pants alike, characterised by patterned stripes and multicolour. Ensembles are completed with a pair of tinted sunnies or strappy flat sandals.

Coachella trend-setters show off their feminine side with garments textured in delicate laces, shaded in tones of cream or pure white for a minimalist chic. Layering brings a boho style dimension to off-the-shoulder tops, as T-dresses experiment with plays of sheers and solids. Hot pants pair well with patterned bralet tops, while loose-fit cover-ups demonstrate their Coachella festival credentials with fringed trim.

Modern fashion warriors adorn themselves with tribal-inspired jewellery pieces, executed with oversized shapes for a stand-out accessory statement. Necklaces emphasise the chest with rows of silver coins or extended metal chain link fringes, while others come detailed with tribal inspired beading and embossed plates for extra impact. Body harnesses can be used to add a directional touch to casual stylings, as seen with mixed materials in shining gold.

Instant tattoos emerge as a must-have beauty look on the festival circuit this season, updated with shimmering metallic surfaces for a fashion-forward twist. Striped gold and silver cuffs create a Tribal Warrior feel when placed high on the arm, while oversized crystalline graphics stand out on the back of the hand. Geometric formations are revealed on the inner wrist, as feathers are combined with beaded ‘bracelets’ near the top of the shoulder, forming a modern bohemian fashion.
