The festi season has kicked off and the mecca for all the fashionable folk is Coachella, home of the immaculately dressed and beautiful. This seasons exceptional line up included some notable ladies who, aside from possessing supreme musical skills, are also pretty good at rustling up a mega-watt stage outfit – so with no further ado here’s our countdown of Coachella style royalty (and you can even snaffle a bit of their style for yourselves with my copy-cats from our new collection).
First up are the hippy dippy Haim sisters, who seem to be going their own way with a mix of cool laid back cali rock vibes. Normally seen in luxe leather jackets, killer kicks and suitably distressed vintage tees, this refreshing break-out look on Alana Haim ticked a major trend box with an almost sporty vibe. The peek-a-boo red bra gives it a little edge and THOSE shorts! Definitely a brave move as they are insy-winsy to say the least, but when in California and all that! If you fancy copying this look then opt for this mesh crop top from the Kardashian Kollection – whether you dare to bare in the shorts is up to you! (Photo credit Alana Haim – blogs.pjstar.com)
Next up is the completely gorgeous Solange Knowles who was joined on stage by her mega famous sibling – three guesses! She had us at this amazing orange outfit (often her colour of choice, we do like a girl who knows her own style) and we love the single minded simplicity of the look. Normally she’s a mash-up minx with an unnerving ability to blend prints and accessories but this outfit is one of our favourites so far – we doff our caps! If you fancy your own little orange crush then try out these Kimberley Walsh pleated shorts as a little nod to the look. (Photo credit Solange Knowles – 1966mag.com)
Ethereal pop princess Lorde made her desert debut in a crop top and flowing white trousers – and, of course, her signature dark lip. This is another simple outfit choice, none of your flamboyant rock chick boho here thanks very much! Crop tops are having a major moment right now (though admittedly they’re not for everyone) and we think this is the best way to wear them, with something a little looser to detract from the sportiness and give your outfit a luxe edge. Try wearing this Kardashian Kollection white crop top to emulate the look and don’t forget the finishing touch – the purple lipstick! (Photo credit Lorde – mashable.com)
Lana Del Rey always surprises with her outfit choices, and we did not expect this shock of colour – we love the slightly 70’s feel to this dress and also the fact that she’s kept the rest of the look very simple. Even her make-up is pared back and we’re loving the natural (albeit very sleek) hair. If you look closely though she’s also sporting some major red nails, wouldn’t want to get on the wrong side of those, ouch! If you fancy rocking a bright floral then we’ve got a treasure trove lined up right now – our favourite has to be this Ditsy Floral Skater Dress from Oasis, it’s definitely got the LDR vibes going on, just add some chunky wooden bangles and you’re away!

The last songstress in our line up is the enchanting Ellie Goulding – she’s fully embraced the rock chick vibe here in a ferocious leather outfit worn with trainers – go Ellie, flying the flag for us Brits! This look is a million miles away from what we’d normally expect, but she pulls it off 100%, and she’s kept the rest of her look really fresh and undone and those beachy blonde locks are just amazing (more than a bit jealous!). While you might not be quite ready to brave this particular look, you can always work a pair of shorts with something a bit less eye-popping – these luxe crocodile print shorts from French Connection are a good place to start, they’ve got loads of dress up and down potential!
