For nearly two decades, people of all ages from around the world have been lured to the desert in a Spring ritual to the Coachella festival as it kicks off the summer music fest season. These days more than 200,000 attend the iconic event held over two weekends in Indio, California. Most come for the music–with over 200 artists performing spanning every genre–that becomes a soundtrack to a fashion show occurring on the lush polo field grass. With temperatures hovering in the triple digits, Coachella offers an early exposure to sweaty summer sunshine, and with it a glimpse on the fashion trends coming in the months ahead.
The perfect festival outfit shows off personality, adapts with the weather, and keeps you comfortable through three days on your feet for 12+ hours walking miles from stage to stage. And before or after you enter the gates, you want to be looking amazing and feeling great at the campsite, rocking out with your crew at the rental house, or lounging poolside. Every festival may have a different feel but the concept remains the same—define your style with comfort and you’ll make it to the last set on day three!
And when it comes to comfort, Skechers always delivers. We found a few fabulous women attending Coachella who rocked and amazingly styled their Skechers for the festival. We love these looks and hope these ladies will spark ideas on how easily you can add a little Skechers to your fest fashion plan. Alison Harvard (@AlliHarvard) poses on one of the pristine landscaped golf courses where all the best Coachella houses can be found in D’Lites – Reinvention at top and in a variation on our pink 2nd Take – Fall For Me sandal above left. Above right Mia Stammer (@MiaStammer) shows us how to style that same pair of D’Lites only this time in black and white.
You’re sure to see Colleen Kelly (@Colliscool) wearing something like the above when she’s working her way to the front of the crowd for her favorite set. At left is the D’Lites – Reinvention again in a third color option—Mint (there’s also Gray, Pink and Navy options not seen here!) and on the right is the D’Lites – Fresh Catch sandal in black. Below Jac Vanek (@Jacvanek) proves that footwear truly is the foundation for every look…ready for the dance tent with a totally different styling of the black and white D’Lite sandals on the left and a more relaxing afternoon of indie rock on the main stage in her pink sandals at right.
Inspired? There’s lots of fun to be had in the months ahead—with some of largest upcoming festivals including Stagecoach this weekend in Indio, California; Sasquatch! near Seattle on Memorial Day weekend; June brings Bonnaroo in Tennessee, Governors Ball in New York City and Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas; LA’s FYF Fest is in July this year; plus Lollapalooza in Chicago and Outside Lands in San Francisco come August before Electric Zoo New York, Bumbershoot in Seattle and Philadelphia’s Made in America festival all close out the season on Labor Day weekend. And that’s just top highlights from the United States!
No matter where you’re going this summer, lounge time is always key. Relax by the hotel or house pool before you hit the event. Festival going is hard work…you deserve to be refreshed! Isabella Peschardt (@ibellapeschardt), seen below preshow in the Indulge 2 – Urban Safari sandals, understands the strategy.
Let us know what big music event you’re looking forward to most this summer in the comments! And show us how you style your favorite pair for the festivals with #Skechers on Instagram!
