Ellie Stidolph, Stylist at Large for centre:mk says: “Instead of over the top fancy dress style festival looks, it's all about more laid back looks such as t shirts, slip dresses and basics with a bit of flair. At Coachella Taylor Swift wore an oversized grey t shirt with black miniskirt and backless Converse . Think the opposite of extreme ripped denim and fancy dress-style boho and instead embrace pieces with a twist. Chokers and round sunglasses are this season must have accessory and over Coachella’s first weekend there was a 70% increase in searches on Lyst of chokers as seen on celebrities such as Vanessa Hudgens, Kylie Jenner and Taylor Swift.”
