Fab 5: A-list festival style

Perhaps you were in California for the first weekend of Coachella; perhaps you’re reading this after the second weekend has come and gone. Either way, the Palm Desert music party (which seems bigger and, er, more branded every year) signals the unofficial start of the summer festival season. And even if there are no concert tickets on your horizon, it’s a significant marker for your wardrobe — a harbinger, if you will, of what you find yourself wanting to wear this summer. From rock chick-worthy biker jackets to dancing shoes, here are five festival season staples.


A boho top is the benchmark of a stylish summer wardrobe: equally ideal for showing off lightly tanned shoulders on the weekend as it is for throwing on over a bikini after a weekday afternoon spent at the beach. This floral version also looks evening-elegant when paired with black culottes.
