Who doesn’t love a good festival? It’s Coachella this weekend, and the festival season is being officially kicked off with one hell of a bang. Coachella is the festival event of the year. Influencers and celebrities flock to the desert to listen to live music, while posing in front of a huge carousel and having elaborate photoshoots.
Coachella has somewhat changed from a music festival to a fashion show, where outfits and jewellery are meticulously thought out for months. If you’ll be staring at your phone this weekend, riddled with FOMO, waiting for regular Coachella updates - you are not alone! But, instead of lusting over Coachella and promising yourself that you’ll go someday, get into the Coachella spirit and get your festival outfits ready.
Take a look at the jewellery you NEED this festival season.
Festival season is all about summery outfits, desert colours and hippie-inspired jewellery, and body chains are the best accessory for this. Add extra accents to your festival look with body jewellery from Conges. Their body chains studded with colourful gemstones wrap around the body, adding more dimension and texture to your look. Wear underneath your clothing for a playful ‘peek-a-boo’ accent or over the top of your clothes to really show it off.
Gold layered necklaces
Gold is the perfect colour for summer. It warms up the skin, giving you a beautiful glow and brightens up any outfit. Layering necklaces is the latest hottest trend and it is a trend that has been seen at festivals like Coachella, Burning Man and Glastonbury for years. Layer different styles and lengths of gold necklaces for a summery look. Carou have a beautiful range of gold necklaces, inspired by the earth and the beach. Layer up the necklaces for a textured and colourful look, perfect for festival fun.
Festivals are a time to try new styles and to wear things that you wouldn’t normally sport on a regular basis. The hippie and bohemian trend has taken over the festival scene. Festivals are covered in bright colours, flower crowns and feather accents. Feathers are dainty, playful and give a fabulous movement to any look. Black Betty Design have mixed classic gold and turquoise colours, with the intricate textures and lines of the feather, to create their feather necklaces and earrings.
Bracelets are one of the most overlooked jewellery styles but during festival season, they are out in full force. There are so many festival-inspired bracelets to choose from but it is always best to stack your bracelets high for a textured look. For a bohemian-inspired look, pick silver tones, colourful gemstones and beads. Elisa Ilana Jewelry have a stunning range of chunky beaded bracelets that when layered, give off a festival vibe and a multi-coloured feel.
Fringe and tassels are another statement festival accessory and are regularly seen at runway shows. Tassels gives more movement to an outfit and there is no better way to wear them than the most loved jewellery item - earrings. Statement drop earrings are a key accessory at a festival. If you’re looking for the perfect tassel earrings with bohemian accents, FARRA is the brand for you. Mixing rhinestones and fringe fabrics with earthy tones, FARRA earrings are the must-have accessory for all your festival needs.
