Coachella has come a long, long way. The last five years alone saw how this world-famous fete held annually in California has evolved from a music and arts festival, into a star-studded mega-event that it is now. And with the influx of models and celebrities joining the festivities year after year, fashion has taken its own spot in the limelight, alongside the usual line-up of pop, rock, indie, hip hop, and electronic dance music artists and performers.
In terms of style, it’s apparent that Coachella has outgrown its flower crowns and boho past. From what we’ve seen since it kicked off on Easter, the best fashion moments veered away from all things fringed.
This year, many festival goers went further than the usual crop tops and mini shorts, with the A-listers turning up the heat in sequinned bra tops, lingerie-inspired apparel and sheer layers that left little to imagination.
Take a look at some of the best looks that we love from Coachella 2017, which might just spark more hot trends for the year ahead.
