With Coachella festival kicking off this weekend across the pond in California, our lucky Senior Fashion News Editor Lucy is getting set to join all the bands, celebrities and music lovers for all the action.
Hitting the desert with Topshop from Friday, she’s off to see amazing acts including The Stone Roses, The XX and Red Hot Chili Peppers, and is on the guest list for various pool parties too. She’ll be bringing you all the action but for now, here Lucy shares her high street festival wardrobe essentials…
Aztec Hi-Top Trainers: It’s all about being super comfy at festivals so that you don’t miss out on any of the fun! These turquoise and coral Topshop trainers are way better than your average plain plimsoll.
Tropical Bikini: At Coachella it’s pool parties galore so I’ve picked out this juicy Tinned Bananas two piece, the perfect match for fruity cocktails. Note the high waist bottoms: my way of easing the winter bod into a bikini. They’re like Spanx!
Neon Bracelets: Having lost expensive jewellery at festivals in the past (boo) I’ve now learnt my lesson, so am switching up my watch for these amazing Freedom at Topshop bright bracelets. Pile them high!
Olympus Camera: I’m never one to miss a photo opportunity and as blogging and taking snaps of cool looking festival-goers is part of my job, I’m packing my new favourite toy, the Olympus PEN E-PM2 camera.
Check back for more Coachella festival coverage online and in the magazine over the next two weeks (we’re SO hoping we bump into Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart!)
