I'm headed to Coachella for the first time ever in a few days, and you can forget itinerary and flight information — what I'm paying the most attention to is what's going in my suitcase. With a personal style sense that rejoices in the relaxed and a childhood spent growing up in north Florida, my natural inclinations already have me reaching for things festival-approved (or so I think).
I'm expecting long hours on my feet, including plenty of walking around, which necessitates comfy shoes and carryalls that won't be abusively heavy. And while the relaxed vibe is projected in and around Indio for the entire duration of the fest, there's still an undeniable fashion component: everyone wants to look good and dresses to impress! Scroll down for the tiny items that can make a festival look, including some items that might just surprise you.
