If you're running out of summer outfit pegs, then it's time to pull inspiration from one of the biggest music festivals of the year: Coachella! Beat the heat with these pieces you can easily put together for when you're attending a festival yourself or simply in need of a cool, breezy outfit. Let celebrities like Kylie Verzosa, Bella Hadid, Vanessa Hudgens, and more show you how! And while you're at it, stock up on these essentials below:
1. Cargo pants
Cargo pants are about to be everywhere, ladies. To make a baggy pair of trousers summer-friendly, wear a cropped top with it to balance out the volume on the bottom half. Achieve the sporty aesthetic and team it with bright, chunky sneakers like Kaia Gerber did.
2. Polka dots
Aimee Song's look is proof that polka dots are the print to master this season. Go the dainty route by pairing the versatile print with floral and botanical elements (like straw bags).
3. Print on print on print
For Phoemela Baranda, summer dressing is not meant for the fainthearted. Mixing bold prints is the way of life if you intend to make the most out of the sun season. Follow her lead and break up the busy prints by showing off some skin.
4. Sheer overlay
If lazy dressing is your thing, that's totally okay! But there's a way to sport your cropped tops, bandeaus, and daisy dukes without looking like a sad cliché. Just add a sheer lace kimono robe to take your look up a notch!
5. Body jewelry
You may want to wear a lot of cropped tees and pieces in white to beat the heat, which is a smart move given the unforgiving sun in Manila. A tip, though: Make like Bella Hadid and incorporate some bling into your attire. But nope, we don't mean earrings or layered necklaces—we're talking about body jewelry!
6. Floral dress
Let's admit it: Florals for summer will always be groundbreaking. And FYI, you can style a floral piece beyond its delicate and frilly potential. The Queen of Coachella herself, Vanessa Hudgens, demonstrated how contrast is key this season. Pair your dainty flower prints with sturdy combat boots to toughen up your look!
7. Fanny packs
Going hands-free will allow you to move more freely this summer and leave you without the burden of lugging around a bag. Plus points if you can make it a part of your outfit's color story! We don't have to tell you twice that pink and red is one of the hottest color combos to try now.
Finding shade under the blazing sun will never be a problem if you're already wearing one on your head! Get into wide-brimmed hats like Chanel Iman for an R&R-ready look or go for a futuristic vibe with a colored PVC visor like Aimee Song's. The choice is yours.
