We travel to the Inland Empire’s Coachella valley to discover what is going on at one of the largest music festivals in the world. Coachella’s a great place to get an idea of some of this summer’s latest trends and to see what the biggest music stars in the world are wearing.
It’s said that Pearl Jam essentially created Coachella, when they performed in front of thousands of fans at the Empire Polo Club. Since then the annual festival has grown in popularity so much that it is now the most attended, most profitable and arguably the most well-known music festival in the whole of America.
So let’s have a look at what styles were seen at the festival, and how you can get the look.
Chloe has put a lot in to Coachella, and it’s really working for them. The luxury Paris fashion Maison was founded on the principles of freedom, lightness and femininity. This year they have been running a campaign on Twitter and Instagram titled #ChloeGIRLS. The sunshine and light feminine clothing mixed with Chloe’s latest collection of sunglasses look really great on celebs such as Poppy Delevingne and Aimee Song. Check out these Chloe Aviator sunglasses that are really giving off that hippy spirited, fun loving retro look, whilst staying classy and feminine. The gold frames mixed with the peach lenses are brilliant.
The retro, rounded frames are still just as popular this summer. If not even more popular. One of the huge appeals of Coachella Festival is the fact that the music genres are so diverse. Some of hip hops big hitters have been recent headliners of the festival yet can be seen knocking shoulders with Rock legends and some of the biggest names in Dance & Electronic music. But what they all have in common is their love for round sunglasses this year. Check out this shot of The Avalanches front man wearing some seriously cool round frames.
A popular style with UFC champ The Notorious Conor McGregor, the aviator glasses style has definitely emerged as one of the biggest styles for 2017. Emily Ratakowski is also apparently a big fan, this year at Coachella they were seen on many of the hip hop elite. We particularly loved this shot of Canadian rapper Nav wearing his aviator glasses, they look super stylish.
There was definitely a resurgence of some classic styles of sunglasses at Coachella. A much thinner, gold or silver frame paired with a coloured lens were popular among many of the crowd as well as artists. These square sunglasses worn by Indie rockers Feather Jam Ministry looked awesome when style with the bands nonchalant shirt and skinny jeans, and look just like these Hexagonal sunglasses by Ray-Ban®. They are definitely one to watch out for this summer.
