Maha Asif Rizwan

It would have been super to welcome summers at the Coachella in ourboho-chic outfits and witness the reunion of Guns N’ Roses. Instead,we sat on our couches, and scrolled through Snapchat to soak up the summer trends revealed during the festival season through the eyes of Kylie and Kendall Jenner.

The celeb-packed festival is the torch bearer of an array of trends that continue to make an appearance throughout the year. From flower crowns to tattooed accessories, tattered jeans and bare shoulders, it’s a desert full of fads to take a style cue from. Apart from the obvious envy, the festivalgoers gave us our list of top five trends to adopt for summer 2016.

Bare Shoulders

It has been a while since we said farewell to straps and hopped on the bare shoulder express. From casual tees to flowy tops, Coachella demonstrates how to wear the trend for a casual and laid back look that is right on point. Let Kendal’s off-shoulder inspire you to get the look by Pepe Jeans.

Bare Shoulders

Strappy Shoes

Having been through the wedges and the flip-flops, the gladiator strappy sandals intrigued our interest this year. Whether your gladiators cover your feet in straps or go all the way up to your knees like Ciara’s, they are a must-have this summer! You can get the look with these chic, strappy black sandals by Pedro.



Wider and bolder than before, chokers are the way to make a statement this season. Ditch those flower crowns and pull some focus to your neck to highlight those beauty bones. Chanel Iman has given us some serious motivation to move away from the average black choker. Give it your own spin with this metallic choker by Zohra Rahman.


Leisure Luxe

Good news, ladies! You don’t have to change out of your yoga pants and gym sneakers to look chic. Athleisure trends are a reality and they are making their way from international ramps to every fashionista’s closet. Get the look with Sana Safinaz’s new sports luxe inspired collection.


Statement Bling

The Colorado Desert might have forced some celebrities to cut their shorts shorter, but it certainly didn’t stop them from bringing out their blingy statement jewelry. Borrow the rule of compensation from Kendall Jenner and pair your casual looks with a statement piece. This one from Mantra will definitely not fail to instantly lift up your look!
