Boho Style for the Coachella Man

It’s no secret that men love fashion. Yes, there are some men that are a little…inept when it comes to putting together a good look, but who doesn’t like looking great? Coachella and music festival season in general is a time where men get to be extra trendy. Put away those oxfords, dress shoes, khakis and the cashmere sweaters and say hello to tank tops, cargo shorts and the ever so popular “white tee”.

Of course with any trend, you can go a little too far…which is why I’m here, obviously. If you’re a style-inept man and you are heading to a music festival this summer, or are just looking for outfit options…you’ve come to the right place because this gal knows what she likes when it comes to men’s fashion.

In Trend, but not Trendy

Perfect for the guy who doesn’t want to stand out, but doesn’t want to blend in. You can really never go wrong with a pair of long jean shorts and a cool tank. I like taking the look up a notch by adding a fun coloured cap and this amazing leather bag. Yes, I realize men do not carry purses…but they carry backpacks (and this one is gorgeous).

Stepping Out in Fashion 

Personally, I love to take risks with fashion. Some of you men don’t love to do the same, but still love the classics. Well, move over classics and get ready to introduce yourself to that fashion hat. The fashion hat is not just for women – lots of men rock them and look amazing. Coachella is one place where you can rock that hat and blend in. This is a low key trendy look, with the patterned tank, the fashion hat, and of course the contrasting belt in cognac colour (definitely worth the risk).

Floral Beach Vibes

I am loving florals this season…and so is music festival fashion. Floral patterns may seem a little girly to most men, but trust me…amongst musical festivals where boho style rules, you will fit right in. I chose a floral tee below that emulates a more masculine look – no pinks, reds, or any deemed “girly” colours. We’re moving into summer months, so white is totally acceptable. This is a classic, laid back festival look.

Hopefully I was able to spark some fashion ideas in your heads on this Friday afternoon. I love men’s style as much as women’s and although I am no expert…like any woman…I know what I like.

Taking Boho Chic to the Next Level!

There is a major fashion event that you don’t want to miss in the next couple of weeks. What is that? It’s Coachella. Okay…so maybe the emphasis is supposed to be on the music…technically. However, every year we see Boho Chic at its finest for this crazy music festival. I, personally, have never been since I am always in finals (boo school, right? ), BUT I stay in tune with all of the best looks…because, why wouldn’t I, right?

In order to really stop the show at this trendy festival, you need to take your look to the next level. Pull out all of the stops: fashion hats, crochet works of beauty, fringe everything…and of course floral prints (and lots of them). All of these are key essentials in a girl’s look for Coachella (or really boho anything, really).

Fashion Hats

Fashion hats are life in the summer. They are the perfect accessory to your casual summer look, and that definitely applies for any music festival you are heading to this summer.

Crochet, crochet, crochet!!

Crochet is something that took me some getting used to. With some pieces, you need to be careful with sizing because there is no give in the material, but it looks super cute for summer.

Fringe Away!

The fringe trend is one that I am loving this year. It is super boho chic, but for summer, the fringe detail is the perfect detail to spice up your summer wardrobe.

Are you prepared yet? Over the years I have come to love some of these items and although I wouldn’t classify myself as a boho-queen, I do deem some of these pieces to just be necessary in every lovely lady’s wardrobe.

I didn’t cover every single trend you are going to see at boho festivals like boho maxi dresses, but these are probably my favourite out them all. Check out cool boho accessories, floral prints (lots of floral prints) and suede…all great trends.
