As anyone who follows fashion bloggers or celebrities in L.A., you would know that the Coachella music festival in Indio, California has been reigning internet social media news all week and last week. You would also be aware that Coachella is as much a fashion red-carpet for bohemian, vintage and tropical summery looks as it is a great place to dance and to move to the spectacular musical lineup, including stellar musicians Muse, Lana Del Rey, Lorde, Arcade Fire, Nas and much more throughout the two weekends. Celebrities like Katy Perry, Vanessa Hudgens, Kylie & Kendall Jenner, Selena Gomez, and more were seen in their quirky boho getup, but their styles were equally rivalled by regular concertgoers flashing and unleashing their inner flower power.
Despite the No-achella situation in Malaysia, with this online guide to Coachella-inspired essentials, you can still easily steal their styles and dress up as if you were heading to a music festival without leaving the comforts of your home; feeling as debonair and having as much fun in your outfits as if you were in California.

4. Statement quirky glasses
It is subtly understood that the sun is just a mere excuse for wearing sunglasses, and that sunglasses can easily be worn whatever the weather, whatever the surrounding — be it indoors or outdoors. Statement quirky sunglasses, then? They’ll shine a spotlight on you so bright the sun is no match for.

5. Cut-off denim shorts
These cut-off shorts make you look so effortlessly rugged & badass, yet trés chic, like you’re a girl who knows exactly the effect she has on people. Like you’re that girl that spends three seconds putting on clothes every morning and manages to look tousled in the hottest way.
If you want to be that girl, get these pair of shorts for RM40 each from Bash. (Sweaters for RM36 each.)
For a more ripped look, wear these light distressed shorts from West Fashion, for RM107.
6. Floral kimonos
These sheer, thin-material kimonos are so in right now, what with the weather being too hot for faux fur jackets or leather biker-chick jackets, and too windy/rainy not to cover up a little. Coachella is a place where it’s too wild to wear a boring knit cardigan; a slightly-wackier, flowy kimono is perfect in terms of style and coverage.
