As long as there is self-expression, two things will remain: fashion and music; which brings us to Coachella Valley Music Festival where they are both brought together for two incredibly fashionable weekends, in a live, street-style, fashion-gathering like no other. New fashion will spread like wildfire after fashion week, even coming back, full circle, to the same streets and events they were originally inspired from. When fresh trends hit the runway, you can bet that it won’t be long until they take over storefronts, billboards, magazine covers and street-fashion in every city and at every celebrated event.
With a new “Be Bright” ad campaign aimed entirely towards bold color and unique style, I turned to GAP for some essential summer (and Coachella) wardrobe staples. If you are ahead of the fashion game, then you were present for the blooming florals, edgy stripes, bursts of color and mid-drift tops as they stomped down the Spring 2013 runways, in all their warm-weather glory. Now, it’s finally time to put our most fashionable threads forwards, for the most festive display of them all… Coachella!
I have no problem calling the grounds of this music festival the revival spot to some of my all-time favorite styles. Cherished retro numbers get paraded around with a touch of personal flair and exaggeration, and the outcome is bigger, brighter and bolder. GAP was right on track with maintaining the modern edge I was going for, yet still incorporating so many classic springtime favorites of mine! I am absolutely, head over high-heels, in love with my printed crop top, distressed jean shorts and striking flower pants. Even after the music festival is long gone, I know these trusty summer staples will carry me fashionably through the season!
