We probably don’t need to remind you that Coachella is in full swing; your feed is likely to be filled with FOMO-inducing content already. Coachella coverage provides a feast of style inspo every year, but the best looks often get lost amongst the ‘boldest’.
While the usual festival style suspects (fringed jackets, cowboy boots, glitter covering every pore) were out in full force, we couldn’t help but pay attention to the colours trends on show at the iconic festival.
Pretty in Pink
Just when we thought this particular colour had been parted with, the style set at Coachella reminded us that they’re still thinking pink. Whether rocking Barbie inspired hot pink getups or cooler hues, pink dominated the festival this year.
Not just reserved for summer styling, yellow is the colour that keeps popping up across womenswear and menswear everywhere we turn. We’re all about adopting this colour trend as we head into the cooler months. Bring your own sunshine!
For those who didn’t opt for colour blocking, vibrant prints were the go-to. Coachella is famous for drawing out the maximalist in it’s attendees, so it came as no surprise that desert-street style coverage of the festival showcased a huge range of head-to-toe print.
With bold colours trending in a big way, it’s easy to forget that neutrals are still fashion’s favourite formula on local streets. While white is a summer staple, beige looks to be making a strong case for itself as the temperature drops.
Street Stylers We Love
You’ve probably come across a YouTube video featuring this French makeup-artist-turned-it-girl. Violette of @violette_fr epitomises effortless style and beauty, but isn’t afraid to experiment with bold colour – both in her incredible makeup looks and equally impressive day to day style.
Brooklyn based @jovelroystan brings our menswear goals this week. Whether he’s rocking streetwear or a suave suit, this street styler has a knack for making trends his own.
In case you missed it, the preliminary schedule for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Sydney has landed! Taking place from 13-17 May at Carriageworks in Sydney and kicking off with a showcase by Camilla and Marc, MBFWA will offer resort 2019 collections from labels such as Romance Was Born, Christopher Esber, Albus Lumen and many more.
As always, we’re even more excited about the fashion we’ll spot off the runway. Will we see you there?
In other fashion week news, there’s a hugely important message being pushed by Fashion Revolution in the coming days.
From April 23-29, Fashion Revolution Week aims to celebrate fashion as a positive influence while scrutinising industry practices surrounding what is arguably fashion’s most pressing issue: sustainability. Throughout the week, brands are urged to demonstrate transparency in their supply chain and fashion fans are encouraged to champion those who are trying to create a more sustainable future for the industry.
Expect to be seeing heaps of memes with “I made your clothes”, or “who made your clothes”. It’s so great seeing transparency from our own Aussie brands. It’s so worth following!
