What To Wear To Coachella If Boho Isn’t Your Thing
Scan the internet for Coachella style guides, and you’ll see lots of denim, fringe, and flowy dresses. But not everybody who plans on hitting up Indio Valley in a couple weeks is into boho style, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
In fact, if hippie chic isn’t your thing, you’ll just stand out from everyone in embroidered jean shorts and floppy hats, which is great.

It’s easy to fall into a boho k-hole when searching your fave online shops for Coachella worthy ‘fits, but don’t worry, we’ve got you with Coachella style inspo that does not involve anything “beachy” or flowy. Here are some dope (and practical) pieces for Indio Valley that won’t force you to forgo your usual aesthetic.
1. A Mesh Top
ASOS Top with Long Sleeve in Oversized Mesh, $31
See through tops (or bodysuits) are a great way to add layers to your look without risking a heat-stroke. Just make sure you wear sunscreen so you don’t end up with weirdo tan lines.

ASOS PETITE Fishnet Leggings, $28
Fishnets have gone from harlot-wear to mainstream in just a few months, but they’re still not part of the standard Coachella uniform. Rocking them under some jean shorts or with a bodysuit will add some punky vibes to your look. Or, instead of full stockings, invest in some fishnet socks to add some fun to your look.
3. Platform Sneakers
Y.R.U. Qozmo Hi-Black Platform Sneakers, $89
Platform sneakers are the best shoes you could wear to Coachella. Boho babes might be flocking to the festival grounds in gladiator sandals, but their feet are going to be dirty and sore by the end of the day. You, on the other hand, will tower over the crowd and keep your feet dust-free in these dope sneakers. They’re on sale right now, so buy them while you can!

4. An Extremely Cropped Sweatshirt
Grey Blouson Sleeve Cropped Hoodie, $33
Be forewarned: this is one of those trends that is super impractical, especially if you’re someone who gets hot easily. But, on the plus side, it’s the perfect chill compliment to a thotty athleisure look without hiding your boobs!
5. A Cute Sports Bra
Active Grey Snake Print Sports Bra, $27
Not only is a sports bra perfect for when you want to jump up and down to Empire of the Sun, it’ll also keep you cool and comfy while your friends get tangled in their kimonos.
6. Badass Booties
ASOS RUTHLESS Chunky Lace Up Boots, $53
I know, I know, these aren’t exactly springtime shoes, but who gives a fuck? These would look so killer with a pair of short-shorts and a thotty bodysuit, and your feet will be supported (and free of dirt) all day.
7. One of These Bad Boys
Nude Mesh Waist Cropped Bandeau Unitard Jumpsuit, $33
Remember when Kylie blew everyones’ mind by rocking this unitard thingie? Now you can blow everyones’ mind at Coachella with your own version.
8. Capri Pants…Seriously
Black Eyelet Lace Up 3/4 Leg Joggers, $40
Capri pants are coming back with a vengeance, and this pair from Missguided is comfy (and on trend) with a little rocker lace-up seam. Buy these, style them with a wedgie swimsuit, and you’ll be good to go.

9. A Thotty Bodysuit
If you’re going to free the nipple, why not save the occasion for Coachella? You surely won’t be the only one baring a little titty, and in a bodysuit like this one, you’ll look damn good.
10. This Holographic Skirt
Metallic Zipper Pull Skirt, $15
Perhaps instead of buying into boho, you prefer to buy into the whole unicorn/mermaid thing. Yes, kind of eye-roll inducing, but holographic shit is really cute. This skirt would look great with a teeny tiny crop top, and it doesn’t look like the type of skirt that’ll blow up with the desert wind and expose your booty.
