We are thrilled to share this story from Lauren Conrad! The TV personality, writer, designer, and style maven has started LaurenConrad.com, a social networking site that features daily posts by Lauren on all of our favorite topics — fashion, beauty, food, party planning — and Lauren will be sharing her latest fashion finds with Fab every month. This week, she's sharing her festival fashion picks.
It's that time of year… festival season! Over the next few months, hipsters, trendsetters and music-lovers alike will be flocking to various music festivals all over the country. And as a matter of fact, I will be going to Coachella this year! I'm really excited. And to be honest, I cannot wait to dress up like a flower child for three days in a row... While I'm looking forward to the music, the number one thing on my mind right now is fashion. Or more accurately, what I am going to wear.
If you ask me, there are four major must-haves when packing for a fashionable festival getaway: shorts (short skirts can be dangerous), lightweight tops (it's hot), comfortable (but stylish) footwear and a few breezy dresses. Seeing as my team has already shared their expert picks for festival flair, I thought I'd spotlight my wardrobe essentials for the big weekend…
Without further ado, here are my must-pack fashion picks for Coachella:
Fabulous, breezy tops are essential . . .
KAIN silk tank, Paper Crown Metallic Knit Top, Topshop crochet vest, Textile Elizabeth & James Zuma Tank
