Summer Trends at Coachella 2012



For two weeks every year, I went camping with my parents. Last year was the first year (literally since I was a zygoot) that I missed that family vacation.  The damage however was done, I love spending a few days at the time outside. This might be one of the reasons why I’m such a fan of festivals.  However I will never be the teva wearing kind and I do like a minimum amount of luxury.


Coachella is the first big festival of the year and therefore signals the long awaiting start of the summer. It is also one of the festivals that has been on my the do to list for some time now. More than any other festival, it is know for its celebrity style and hippy outfits. Since the first day that the festival started, I have been keeping a close eye on Instragram, Twitter, Youtube (yes, you could follow the festival live) and all other sources for that necessary festival hit. It is still a mystery to me why all these people look so good throughout the festival but they might just not be slumming it like us at Rock Werchter. These are the trends that were all over the festival:

1. The Classic Cut Off Jean Shorts

2. I Heart Isabel Marant Dicker Boots

I am not resentful for this trend as I have been a huge fan of this shoe for a long time now. There are so many ways to style this shoe and at they are perfect for festivals -if you aren’t afraid to get them dirty-.

4. Adding some florals

  11. [...] As one of the top earning models worldwide, she travels around the world constantly. Therefore her style is based on comfort and simple pieces that are of high quality and are well fitted. A style that suits her very well in her daily life. It’s becoming a red thread through my style highlights but I’m more a fan of her street wear than her red carpet looks – same as with Emma Stone and Lily Aldridge -.You might also have noticed that she sports the Isabel Marant Dicker boot quite a lot. Guess I’m just a sucker for this perfect ankle boot. [...]
