Steal the Stars Coachella Style for Festival Season

Festival season has been offically kicked off with the celebrity infused music festival Coachella. Lots of stars were out rocking their best festival gear this year. The top three favorites this year were Katy Perry in her D&G lace dress, Kate Bosworth in her Topshop American Flag shirt, and Vanessa Hudgens in her all out bare feet hippy gear. These ladies wore the perfect festival gear that will be around all summer.

Okay not all of us can afford to wear a D&G dress, let a lone want to wear it to a muddy festival but we can all steal and take notes from these ladies.

My favorite steal for this look is the American Eagle Pintuck Mini Maxi Dress (first dress on the left $39.99). Like the D&G dress this dress is also teired but is also a bit shorter, falls right on the knee. The tiers of the dress give it a boho feel to it along with the pleated top. This dress also comes with a tie but can be taken off the dress so that it can be paired up with a belt.

For a bit more of a splurge the Free People Burn Out Halter Dress (last dress on the right...$128) is a bit more closer to the lace feel of the D&G dress. This dress has crochet inserts that tiers down the dress. The dress like the AE dress is shorter then Perry's but falls below the knee. Look for dresses that have similarities to a designer dress wheather it's small details like the tiers or lace inserts or just the look of the dress. Pulling off looks doesn't mean buying a knock off but means getting an inspiration from it.

The Urban Outfitters Staring at the Stars dress (2nd dress from the left...$79) isn't lace but has a lace feeling to it with the soft floral print. This dress is perfect for festival wear since it is sheer which means it will be light and airy. Remember that you'll be outside all day and you don't want to wear something to heavy.

Take a page out of Perry's look and do a scarf headband. Topshop has plenty to choose from, all three headbands are from Topshop. Do a long pear necklace that you can double up on or do a necklace that has layers of pearls like the Modcloth Pearl Glam Necklace (second to the left...$40). Also don't forget some sunglasses and a cross body bag.


Thanks to Balmain for bringing back the punk days with their ripped pinned up shirts, studded jackets, and beat up American flag shirt. Stores are now copying this trend by producing their own verison of the Balmain american flag shirt. Kate Bosworth was struting her stuff in the Topshop American Flag T-shirt pair with white cut off shorts and lace up sneakers. This look is easy to pull of. If your looking for a top that is less then Topshop's $45 American Flag Tank Top try Dorthy Perkins White American Flag Tee (second tee from the left) for $29. If your looking for a tee with attitude the Maurie and Eve's American Flag Specator Tee (last on the right...$98). This tank top is more on the pricer end but unlike the Topshop and Dorthy Perkin's tee this top's strips go all the way around.

Kate Bosworth Coachella

To truly pull the whole Bosworth look off pair the look up with high top sneakers like the classic Converse (first on the left...$45) or Topshop's Grey Suede Hi Top Trainers (second from the left....$50). Don't forget to accessorize with some friendship bracletes, bangles, and long loose necklases that have a horn tooth attached to them like the Erica Weiner The Wolf Tooth Necklace (first on the right...$30). Also do necklaces that mix with texture like pair a horn tooth up with a feather neacklace.


Vanessa Hudgens looks like she's right out of the 70s wandering around Woodstock with her crocket embrodied halter top, high waisted cut off jeans, coin necklace, and fringe bag. She even went as far to do some tribal war paint make up right under her eye. Her whole look and vibe is very free spirited. To recreate her look try doing a crochet top. If you want one that really stands out try Topshop's Coral Crochet Zip Back Crop Sleeveless Top (second from the left...$55). This top has the right amount of pop and has the details to blend into the vibe.

Vanessa Hudgens Cochella

ASOS Crochet Cropped Tank (thrid to the right...$53) is my favorite because of the fringe tassles that add a nice surprise to the whole top. Also the larger patterns of the top make it stand out. High waisted shorts go perfectly with cropped tops especially if you have an extra little tummy that you want to hind a bit.

Try to find shorts that are vintaged or that look vintaged. If you are trying to find some vintage bottoms try rokit.co.uk. They have a ton of different Levi and Wrangler vintage shorts. These shorts come in so many different styles and cuts. My favorites are the Levi's Stonewash Blue Demin Turn Up Shorts (first on the left....$34) the turn up on the shorts give it a clean touch but still give it a cut off feeling. Plus the light demin looks vintage and so does the cut of the shorts. The best part about this website is that their demin shorts are all super affordable and that they come in some many different styles.

To accessorize the look like Hudgens did pair it up with a cross body fringe bag, braclets, arm cuffs, and coin necklaces. Stick with gold colored jewlery and make sure to wear the arm cuffs up around your biceps.

These look are all about having a free spirit. So gear up and get your festival list ready!

What do you think about their looks? Do you have any favorites from Coachella?

  1. interesting post, love coachella fest.
    Is where love is <3
    I admit that katy perry won the style :)


  2. I love kate bosworth's look. So chill and sexy at the same time!

  3. I TOTALLY have that first necklace in the last pic you posted... or something VERY close to it. I'm psyched to have something you blogged about, lol.

    Also, I wanted to point out one more thing: V. Hudgens is also sporting one of those feather extension/earring things. Feathers are BIG this spring/summer. I think I might do the extensions myself now that my hair is straight and see how they come out. :)

    Fun post!

  4. I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
