UO Festival Guide

Photos by Stephen Sun

Coachella is right around the corner!! Personally, I am such a last minute shopper so being able to have a one-stop-shop when I'm buying a bunch of random things for something like Coachella is essential for me.  Urban Outfitters immediately comes to mind as my go-to store for all things festival. UO has always been one of my favorite brands but over the last few years their clothing, accessories, and lifestyle pieces have been so on point.  Not only that, but it feels like they have everything could ever need; bathing suits, rompers, booties, backpacks, and even portable phone chargers, which are essential for festivals.

This year I got to work with Urban Outfitters and Reward Style to bring you guys a few unique variations of my favorite festival style looks! I wanted to show a variety of sophisticated, unique looks because the typical hippie, flower crown, jean shorts festival look feels so overdone to me.

The Updated Festival Classic Look:
This one piece bathing suit from Urban Outfitters (here) is absolutely amazing.  I love this look as a unique take on the classic festival outfit.  The deep V-neck of this swimsuit adds an element of high-fashion to an otherwise casual outfit.  I'm not usually comfortable doing "bathing suit" photos because that's not really my style and I like to eat too much... But this swimsuit is very flattering and shows just the right amount of skin.  Whether you want to wear this as a cute bodysuit, like I did here, or throw some jean shorts on over it and wear it as a top, this one-piece is a must-have for all body types, trust me.

Neckties have been one of my favorite trends as of late.  Not only are they a cute daytime accessory, but they are also extremely practical for Coachella in protecting your face from the copious amounts of dust walking to and from the festival. Urban Outfitters also has some really cute neckties (I told you they really do have everything!), shop a few of my favorites here, here and here.

Make sure to go to the end of the post to shop my entire outfit!

The Sophisticated Festival Look:
As I've gotten older and more educated in fashion, I'm inspired by a classier festival style. Pretty, yet practical sundresses, comfortable, breezy shorts, crop top sets, and rompers are among my personal favorite festival looks.  Reformation embodies the classy festival style flawlessly, particularly with their sundresses. This navy mini is one of my favorite pieces that I've purchased this spring and if I were going to Coachella I would definitely be wearing this, shop this dress here!

Arguably the most essential item for festival season is an oversized jean jacket.  This denim jacket from Urban Outfitters (here) is the only jacket that I've found thus far that gives that oversized, worn-in feel. I ALWAYS bring a jean jacket to Coachella because they are great for layering during the evening shows when the temperature drastically drops.  My go-to look is to wear an oversized sweater or a flannel and layer my jean jacket over it!

The Carefree Style:
 By day three of any festival, I do not care at all about what I wear or what I look like.  Knowing this going into things I like to plan to wear an easy outfit that is comfortable and practical on the last day. A cute tank, shorts, and sneakers usually does the trick! Shop this tank top from Urban here and these Amuse Society shorts from Top Shelf Style here.
