Meet the festival fashion OG: a simple boho maxi that can be styled any way your heart desires.
Boho white dresses have definitely earned their place in festival fashion culture. Long before Instagram #OOTDs in front of the infamous ferris wheel were a thing, there were plenty of free loving hippies with flowers in their hair frolicking around in crocheted and fringed numbers at the original Woodstock in 1969.
In recent years, celebrities and influencers like Selena Gomez, Sara Samapio, Rocky Barnes and Camila Coehlo have given white maxis a modern update for Coachella. These stylish muses know how to work it, whether they’re pairing theirs with antique-style jewelry, cowboy boots….or an In-N-Out burger in hand (the ultimate Coachella accessory).
We might not be able to replicate their enviably glam lifestyles, but at least we can borrow some styling cues from these women. A white maxi has endless potential, making it the gift that keeps on giving. Whether your style is romantic or rock chick, here are three ways to make it your own.
Grunge Meets Girlie
Wondering how to tone down the prettiness of a white maxi? Add some tough, borrowed-from-the-boys accessories like biker boots or a leather jacket. Luckily, you don’t need to rely on any boy, ever; just stock up on a chunky pair of shoes, a leather crossbody bag and some cool shades.
A white maxi dress is the boho babe’s kryptonite: she just can’t resist it. She’ll get her power back by styling hers the way she knows best – with a wide-brimmed hat, a fringed bag and an abundance of silver and turquoise jewelry.
Sure ancient goddesses had servants to fan them with palm leaves while feeding them grapes, but have you ever been to the VIP area of a festival?! This might just be the outfit to gain you that coveted AAA pass and get the treatment a 2019 goddess deserves. Think gold chains, arm cuffs, delicate anklets, lace-up gladiator sandals and you’re on the right track.
