Some common fashion trends that were seen these past weekends include: boho chic styles, fringe details and bold patterns.

“Coachella style continues to ring true, as always, at Coachella 2024. We can always anticipate a Western aesthetic there – the denim and fringe, the leather and lace, and the ubiquitous cowboy boot, and we know we will see boho chic with long hippie skirts, lingerie-inspired camisole tops, laced- up corsets, crocheted looks, and a variety of DIY individualized styling,” said Prof. Ellen Gang of the fashion marketing program in the marketing department.

“It’s hard to say where these styles were born, but one thing is clear: Coachella has a LOOK. It

has a vibe. Designer markets will have a completely different take on their shared trend concepts, and everyone can give it their own twist,” said Gang.

Among the already star-studded headliners, Coachella also saw surprise appearances from music artists like Billie Eilish, Kesha, Childish Gambino, A$AP Rocky, Shakira and even Justin Bieber.

“I was not expecting to see a collab between Lana Del Rey and Billie Eilish during the first weekend or a collab between Lana and Camilla Cabello. I loved Lana and Billie Eilish’s collab of ‘Video Games’,” said sophomore Gia Hart.

With over 100 musicians and artists performing at Coachella, fans were able to experience numerous music genres throughout the festival, and a lot of fans have their opinions about which performances were their favorite.

“Lana was definitely my favorite performer because I’ve been a fan of her for so long and her entire setlist was just breathtaking, plus she has such an amazing stage presence,” said Hart.

“I am very impressed with Sabrina Carpenter this year because I know it’s her first big performance and I thought her stage presence was very authentic and different from everything I have seen,” said Marisa Tache ‘19.

Coachella is an event music fans look forward to every year, whether it be for the artists and fashions. It has become a staple in pop culture.

“For years, I have loved Coachella and I thought this year’s lineup was phenomenal and I loved the artists that they chose and the different days they scheduled them but, if we are talking about outfits, I was super underwhelmed with the fashion at Coachella this year,” said Tache.
