The much anticipated Coachella Valley Music and Arts Annual Festival is upon us. If you were one of the lucky 200,000 that scored a ticket, you must not only plan your wardrobe, but put your most stylish foot forward. Let the valley be your runway!

Go with the Flow. Choose a light, flowy microfiber fabric that won’t weigh you down under the desert sun. Keep the nice breeze coming!
Rock On. Now is the time to accessorize with high-impact jewelry. Go for a blend of metals and chunky pieces that channel your inner rockstar.
