Last year, I went to Coachella without really thinking too much about what I would wear. Once I got there, I realized that the festival had a dress code of its own—and I was completely unprepared. So this year, I was determined to dress the part. I wanted to embrace the flower child festival spirit without looking like I was wearing a costume. I also wanted to buy pieces that I could incorporate into my daily life in SF and that would be comfortable for a day and night spent in the desert.
So, I took a trip to Forever 21. Since I was on the hunt for more trendy pieces, I wasn’t too worried about buying things that would last beyond the season. I knew I wanted to try out the crop top trend (without baring too much), so I opted to pair this blue ikat top with a high-waisted asymmetrical maxi skirt. I added in a few Southwestern-inspired accessories and obligatory round sunnies, slipped on my wristband and skipped into the sunset a happy hippie—for the weekend, at least.

The ’90s are back in a big way.
Fashion repeats itself, and we’ve all watched as decades past paraded back into our lives (bellbottoms, anyone?). ’80s neons recently returned with a vengeance, and now it seems that the ’90s are back and much, much better than before.
Crop tops and mirrored sunnies played an important role in this summer’s street style, and will no doubt strut into next summer as well. For fall we’ll see no shortage of dark lips, tartan prints and platforms. And thanks to Dannijo, we have the rebirth of the choker to look forward to. As long as those butterfly clips stay in the past, this is one sartorial decade that I’m happy to say hello (again) to.
