The 2023 Coachella season is expected to see lightweight lace and detailed knit looks. Pieces like this make a statement but also provide an airy comfortable feel.

Senior Olivia Longenecker says, “this year I am going to use waist chains and belts to make comfy outfits less boring”.

Incorporate inspiration from a favorite artist that is performing, use bright colors, or go thrifting for some old school inspiration. Whatever you wear, let it be a creative representation of your own style and reflection of the enticing weekend.
