After spending an amazing three days celeb spotting, margherita sipping, band watching and, of course, festival trend hunting at Coachella festival, we can tell you that there is only one shoe to be seen in this festival season. And you probably already have a pair in your wardrobe. We’re talking about Converse Chuck Taylor, the iconic hi-tops we – and celebs galore – love. Seriously, from Laura Whitmore and Louise Roe to Aluna Francis and Stella Maxwell, not to mention hundreds of other festival-goers, we spotted the cult kicks everywhere we turned at Coachella.
It’s no surprise really. Not only do the lace-up’s make the perfect footwear choice for Coachella’s dusty desert setting (sandals are a serious no-no guys) they go with absolutely everything in your wardrobe. Laura rocked hers with a See by Chloe denim playsuit and floaty, boho Lindex dress, while Louise teamed classic white Converse with preppy cut-offs and a boater hat. Aluna Francis glammed up her all-white kicks with a peek-a-boo sheer skirt and top combo, and we spotted VS Angel Stella Maxwell hitting the Jeremy Scott party in worn-in black Chuck Taylors, ripped denim and a printed bomber. Another gal loving her comfy Converse was new stylista on the block, Sarah Snyder. Jayden Smith’s model girlfriend practically lived in them all weekend.
The best thing about the Coachella Converse craze? You don’t need a festival ticket to rock the trend and they work 24/7, whether you’re a boho babe, 90s grunge girl, tomboy or love to work a vintage vibe. For extra celeb style kudos, keep it classic and opt for black or white hi-tops. Trust us, it’ll be the best £50 you ever spend.
