Real talk: Internet shopping is great, but unless you scroll forever through “Shop All,” you could miss the magical thing you’re looking for. It’s not like walking by a tiny shop window where something amazing can just be sitting there and you know instantly that you’ve got to take it home. So we’ve made a few virtual shops to give you that boutique-y feel. This makes it easier to find the stuff you want, and gives you more opportunities for the perfect surprise along the way.
Festival Style Obviously. This is your first stop on the road trip to boho bliss. Gear up for the fest with tassel-topped crossbodies, rockstar-luxe backpacks, and all the fringe and espadrilles you can handle. There’s some crystal jewelry in there too for
It’s the fest time of the year. You’ve already seen what to wear, what to expect, and what to listen to on the way there. Now it all comes down to how to act while you’re there. We’ve got 5 pointers on how to keep your cool in the desert.
1. Be sexy, but kinda weird about it.
Consider channeling a little Bowie. (Fun fact: also RM’s daughter’s name.) David Bowie was a lot of things. “Basic” was not one of them. When a lot of rockstars were butching it up, he started going femme. It works on women too—go for a gender flip and mix up your skirts with concert T’s and motos. And this is your anthem.
2. Dance like everybody’s watching, but you don’t GAF.
Stop pretending that you’re a backup dancer in an R&B music video. Be the
So the thing about being a rebel is that you want to feel the flow, but not go with the flow. What exactly does that look like? Here are some ace celeb moments of a few girls (and guys) who do that stand-out-from-the-crowd thing that our #RMRebelRebel vibe is all about.
First up, an RM front-row regular, Kate Bosworth, who’s a major player in festival style circles. She’s snuck in some 90s goth vibes with that choker and platform combo. And major props for ladylikeness, which at Coachella, is its own form of rebellion.
Ellie Goulding is all about ethereal pop perfection (we will never not listen to Lights). And then this happened. A full on metal moment, right in the middle of her set. Didn’t see that coming, and it’s so, so
It may look like straight feathers, flowers and cutoffs to the outsiders, but the festival scene actually has a lot of season-to-season style change-ups. That old uniform of racerback tank, high-waisted denim, Wellies, and flowers in your hair—it’s had it’s time. If you’re down with being an #RMRebelRebel this season, here’s what to kick to the curb and what to take on.
OUT: Flower Crowns (Sorry, Lana) / IN: Pompom Crowns
The perfect antidote—fun poofs that aren’t dying in front your eyes. They also bring a much-needed dose of “we’re not taking this too seriously.” Flowers are so earnest, no?
OUT: Structured bags (too many edges) / IN: Soft, slouchy bags
