Coachella 2015 festival style
By Matt Glazebrook, 14 April 2015
Don't let the blue skies and big sun fool you – it's not quite festival season yet. Unless you live in Southern California, where 25 degrees in April counts as merely seasonably warm, in which case it's time to don your summery boho finery and go watch some bands in a field.
Coachella kicked off in the desert on Friday and continues next weekend. We checked in with the great, good and just generally stylish to get our first dose of 2015 festival style.
Filmmaker Michael Polish brought the 70s Southern California vibes with a Levi's Vintage denim shirt that Gram Parsons would have approved of.
There's incorporating style cues from the golden age of festivals in your outfit and there's straight dressing up as Jimi Hendrix on the Isle of Wight in 1970. This fella's ensemble strays into the latter territory, but he looks damn good so it's hard to hate.
Capes and cloaks are going to be huge for dudes this festival season. Layer one over your standard cut-offs and vest combo – like Aussie singer Cody Simpson – and you can ward off evening chills if you're partying too hard for a trip back to the tent for a change of clothes. And if you party so hard you forget where your tent even is, you can always curl up under it for a sleep.
Aaron Paul also received the 'blankets for boys' memo, teaming his with a checked shirt, printed T-shirt and jeans like a layery, grungy style colossus.
Snowboarder Shaun White lived up to his name in this sharp, punk-inspired get-up. All-white errthang is a strong festival season statement, as long as you're relaxed about grass stains.
