Coachella kicked off the music-festival season last weekend, which means its time for dozens — or possibly hundreds — of music-festival-fashion stories.
I was out there in Indio, Calif., and, as I mentioned on my personal Instagram, I enjoyed checking out what other people were wearing, even though I didn’t emulate the sex-ay looks.
I also kept my jewelry to a minimum for practical reasons.
I stuck to the shorts-and-t-shirt look that I wore at Coachella in 2016. Here is Saturday’s variation on the theme.
What Wendy Wore to Coachella 2017
Skull t-shirt: Birthday gift from 2016, I think.
Sunglasses: Opening Ceremony (2014)
Bandanna: Guns N’ Roses merch, from Coachella 2016
Denim jacket tied at waist: Vintage Kikit (bought from eBay in 2015)
Shorts: Current/Elliott (2014)
Shoes: Puma (2016, first seen here)
Bag: Ugly but practical nylon Tumi bag (2017. Purchased for Women’s March on Washington.)
Hat (in hand): Philip Treacy (2011? After I got this one, for sure.)
If you’re going to the second weekend of Coachella, I recommend high-top sneakers or ankle-high boots. Indio is in the desert and you walk through grit and dust — especially in the parking lots — which doesn’t feel very nice when it gets in between your toes. I do see plenty of people wearing sandals, but I don’t know how they do it. I wouldn’t be able to take the discomfort! Last year, I wore a low-top sneaker one day and that was miserable enough. Speaking of dust, bring a bandana to cover your nose and mouth.
