COACHELLA CUTE VS. SPRING AWAKENING SKANKY

COACHELLA CUTE VS. SPRING AWAKENING SKANKY

The season of music festivals is now upon us. Colorful and flowy clothing is a must... but the confusion of how to dress at a music festival is oh so apparent.


Coachella fashion this year tended to consist of daisies and crochet... spring awakening fashion on the other hand consisted of barely-there bras and denim underwear (otherwise known as booty shorts).

Though festival fashion is meant to be fun and flirty, slutty and naked is not what festival-goers should be shooting for.

 

EXHIBIT A: FUN SHORTS VS. FASHION FAUX PAS:
 

 

The two main differences between fabric shorts vs. denim shorts is:

 

A) the length: lace trim adds extra coverage for those bootylicious ladies who might have a little more hanging out

 

B) the material allows for movement; whether you're dancing or relaxing on a picnic blanket, you won't flash the crowd

 

EXHIBIT B: CUTE TANKS VS. BEDAZZLED BRAS:


I'm pretty sure the differences need zero explanation. Use your heads ladies... it's a necessity.


Though for many Midwesterners, Spring Awakening was a trash fest... and for those of us who only witnessed it via Instagram and Twitter it was horrifying event to look at... hopefully we can get some inspiration from Coachella and class it up a bit by the time Lollapalooza arrives.


XOXO, Amanda
