4 Ingenious Ways To Up Your Denim Game

The Coachella Gods have spoken


With Coachella’s second weekend right around the corner, we’re taking all the tips we can get. This year has been a game changer. Our all-time favourite denim no doubt will sustain its place in the spotlight, but with a few tweaks here and there. It’s time to (finally) say goodbye to festival clichés. Flower headbands are no longer the go-to accessory and daisy dukes given a much needed revamp.

#1 With a bandana


Bandanas were spotted on almost everyone from Hailey Baldwin to Taylor Hill. Here, Italian blogger and fashion designer, Chiara Ferragni brings her denim number to life with a touch of striking red. Pair your denim outfit with this trendy extra for that instant pick me up.  

#2 With layers

Vanessa Hudgens isn’t dubbed Queen of Coachella for no-reason. Every year concert-goers look to her for fashion inspo. This time round, she proves there’s no need to put a limit on denim pieces in an outfit. She rocks a white denim dungaree with a light blue denim shirt wrapped around her hips. Who would’ve thought? 

#3 With iron-on patches 

It’s the 90’s all over again. What we loved the most about this trend is that there’s no way you’d find another walking around with the exact same outfit as you – Which at Caochella, would be the ultimate nightmare.  This clearly worked out well for Bella Thorne who gave her getup character with these nostalgic iron-on patches.

#4 With minimal effort  

At a music festival like Coachella, everyone goes crazy with their over-the-top get ups. We’ve seen our fair share of denim shorts on the Coachella grounds. Usually, they’re paired with a printed bikini top, fringed kimono and tons of accessories. So less, is more when it comes to standing out from the crowd. Chanel Iman keeps things simple with a super cropped muscle tank and rugged boots in this refreshing take.
