With Coachella’s Weekend 1 kickoff just a few days away, I’m looking to these stylish celebs to deliver my outfit inspiration for those three days in Indio. Click through to see their looks and learn why they worked—and to shop them, too!
Alexa Chung
Alexa never gets it wrong, and this pinstriped two-piece ensemble she wore last year is equal parts breezy and crisp. Extra points for tying that flak jacket around her waist, too—extra layers come in handy once the sun sets in Indio. Click through to shop the look.
Diane Kruger
Diane always looks flawless on the red carpet, but her off-duty outfits are equally compelling. Take this daring graphic-tee-and-tap-pants combo she wore to an H&M party at last year's festival—paired with those tall suede boots, she looks like a '70s rock goddess. (Of course, Josh Jackson's the best accessory a girl could ever ask for!) Click through to shop the look.
Solange Knowles
Solange is a pro at mixing prints; for Coachella 2013, she wisely stuck to one standout pink Hawaiian floral motif and added clean white accents. Love. Click through to shop the look.
Kate Bosworth
Kate's arguably the reigning celebrity queen of Coachella, and the American flag tank, white cutoffs and wedge sneakers she wore back in 2011 add up to what's probably my favorite festival look of all time. Click through to shop the look.
Harley Viera-Newton
An all-over pineapple print is a sweet choice for a music festival; paired with a practical (if super-fancy) crossbody bag, you can't miss with a look like this. Click through to shop the look.
Alessandra Ambrosio
Alessandra's one of the modeling community's most enthusiastic Coachella-goers. While denim cutoffs are an obvious choice for a music festival, I love that the Victoria's Secret Angel picked a more interesting neon pink pair instead. Snaps for those mirrored shades, too. Click through to shop the look.
Lily Donaldson, Karlie Kloss and Cara Delevingne
On the other hand, here's proof positive that you don't have to wear neon anything to stand out at Coachella. Click through to shop the look.
Dree Hemingway
A crop-top-and-skirt combo in a cheeky print is a can't-miss outfit idea—especially when you throw in a kooky crossbody bag. Click through to shop the look.
Emma Watson
If ever an item of clothing was designed with Coachella in mind, the romper is it. An animal-print one like Emma's is so cute, it's worth the extra hassle in the restrooms—trust me. Click through to shop the look.
Katy Perry
Katy's look from 2013's festival certainly isn't for the meek—it takes a lot of guts to wear a skirt with faces on it—but she sure does stand out amongst the denim-cutoffs-clad masses. For real-life Coachella wear, swap out those platforms for flats. Click through to shop the look.
Lauren Conrad
While Lauren's hat and shades provide plenty of sun protection, those cheery striped shorts offer a great graphic contrast against her high-low top. Click through to shop the look.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
Yet another way to jazz up standard-issue jean shorts? Pick ones with a little extra embellishment, like Rosie's Christopher Kane for J Brand pair from 2012. Click through to shop the look.
Solange Knowles
Talk about making lemonade—er, or a supremely adorable sheath dress and matching sandals—out of lemons! Click through to shop the look.
Sophia Bush
Yes, it is possible to wear a crop top to Coachella without baring 99 percent of your torso. Bravo, Sophia. Click through to shop the look.
Alexa Chung
When in doubt, go the simple route with a sun-reflecting LWD and simple sandals. Then, feel free to go a bit wilder with your jewelry selection! Click through to shop the look.
Kate Bosworth
If ever there was a time and place to wear tie dye, Coachella is it. This Suno number Kate wore back in 2010 still haunts my dreams. Click through to shop the look.
