Festival season is nearly upon us and Coachella, one of the biggest festivals in the world, has been and gone. As usual, and this year more so than ever, with it came a hoard of fantastic festival fashion trends to boot — many of which centred around footwear. As you’re well aware, shoes are kind of our thing, so we were pretty excited to see some of these new trends emerging from Coachella by celebs and general festival-goers alike. Here are some of the top Coachella looks we saw this festival season, and how to recreate them with style and ease.
These gorgeous Blink Sandals are not only an absolute bargain at £24.99, but they also hit two trends in one with a stunning pewter metallic finish and a chunky rubber heel for comfort and grip. Perfect for comfortable feet at a festival and the ideal finishing touch to your outfit. Team with denim shorts and a cute fringed crop top for the ultimate Coachella vibe.
Converse High Tops are always in fashion, but with their thick rubber soles they’re absolutely perfect for festival wear and will keep your feet happy all weekend! We love these All Star High Tops in Black, teamed with some cute dungarees and an embellished t-shirt you’ll find the perfect cool and laid back festival look — as seen on many at Coachella!
Aztek prints will be huge this season — and it wouldn’t be a Coachella lookbook without featuring some gorgeous Aztek wedges to help you dominate the style stakes! These chunky French Connection Lata Wedges are super stylish, super comfortable and bang on trend — perfect for a more dressy Coachella vibe. Use these to accessorise a boho-style denim dress and add a cute leather backpack for the ultimate smart but casual look.
We touched upon it briefly with the last look, but boho is a festival style staple. Loved and worn by many — especially at Coachella, boho is the perfect trend for festivals — cool, comfortable and floaty. We’ve chosen these gorgeous Hudson suede ankle boots with a little heel to help you stand out from the crowd. Team with floral dress and floaty lace kimonos for a gorgeous Summery feel.
For an effortlessly cool Coachella style, you need shoes with a serious reputation. Superga’s are the cool kicks on the block, and as well as ensuring your feet are comfortable, will make sure even your most casual outfit will be festival chic! We love these White Cotu Superga’s, and with a simple slogan tee and some high-waisted shorts, you’ll easily look like the most seasoned and cool festival-goer there is.
Spring/Summer 15 is all about espadrilles. Cute, comfortable and cool for your feet, these shoes are perfect for every occasion — the beach, shopping, and a festival or two in between! TOMs are one of the most notorious espadrille-style brands, with plenty of colours and styles to match any festival outfit you put together. We love these cute crochet ones. Perfect with a bardot-neck gypsy-style top and some cute denim hotpants. Pack on the jewellery for the ultimate glam Coachella look!
Backpacks are making a comeback in a big, big way after being seen everywhere at Coachella — and we can’t say we’re surprised. Cool, easy to wear and totally practical — a backpack would be an essential for our festival packing list! Thanks to Mi-Pac, backpacks are cool fashion items to accentuate an outfit, rather than geeky school essentials! We particularly love this burgundy star print one. Rock with any outfit and marvel how a backpack has revolutionised your festival experience.
Sliders are the new kids on the block when it comes to fashionable footwear, but they’ve most certainly taken the festival scene by storm! Comfortable, easy to wear and totally casual, it seems sliders are here to stay — and none are cooler than these Hunter Slides. These funky footwear match any outfit — jeans, leggings, cute shorts, but we love them with a patterned mini dress and cute bag. Once you’ve invested in some Hunter slides — you’ll never look at casual footwear the same again.
