If you are heading to Palm Springs for the second week of Coachella, you need to dress the part out there on the West Coast. With the blistering desert heat, large crowds of people, and loads of walking, two things to keep in mind when planning your outfit is staying comfortable and cool.
Our favorite look for Coachella are maxi dresses because they are effortlessly romantic and timeless. You can pair them with combat boots for a rugged look or comfy sandals for something more feminine and traditional.
This brings us to our next topic: ModCloth. The creative retailer sells trendy, affordable, and punny titled pieces that we are crazy about. With their new spring collection in full bloom, we narrowed down our two favorite maxi dresses and accessories for the hip festival.
The From Far and Tier Dress is our go-to spaghetti strapped maxi. With simple crochet detailing along the trim of the top portion, this light sheer garment is nature chic, especially with the soft floral print. Even though you’re already near La La Land, have your own Alice moment with the Wonderland of Whimsy Bracelet. The gold vintage-esque cuff includes the wanderlust inspiration by Lewis Carroll, “I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then,” has us feeling at ease.
The Let’s Sway Together Dress is one of favorite essentials; everyone needs this piece! The strapless and neutral maxi dress looks simple at first glance, but includes crochet detailing and a tassel to define the waist. The crinkle fabric of the garment is lightweight and breathable, giving off a beachy vibe.
To accessorize the strapless boho maxi, we paired it with the That Polonius Guy Necklace, which includes the famous quote from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, “This above all else: to thine own self be true.” I mean, we are writers after all with an obsession for fashion, so we had to go with the quote jewelry and we love the positive vibes it sends.
