Like it or not, Coachella has returned in all its glory and we’re going to need to talk about the fashion. After a two-year hiatus, many of the celebrity Coachella regulars have returned, with some fun new faces as well, and it’s almost like nothing has changed—but a few key trends have.
At this point, I think we could all make a list of stereotypical Coachella trends with our eyes closed, and at the top of that list would be cut-off denim shorts. They’ve been a Coachella mainstay since its inception, but this year, I noticed after sifting through the celebrity photos from weekend one, that denim shorts were much fewer and far between than in years past. I wouldn’t say that denim shorts are over, period. But I would say that people are clearly making an effort to move on from stereotypical Coachella looks and mix things up. They’ve had a lot of time to plan their outfits, after all.
Scroll to see (and shop) the trends celebs like Kendall Jenner and Doja Cat are wearing to Coachella instead of denim shorts this year.
