Shady Coachella Style: Perfect Sunnies for Any Music Festival

Packing for Coachella (or any musical shindig) just got a whole lot easier! That’s right, we’re back with a couple ensemble options for guys and gals to rock during their fave festival this year. Something that should never be left off your packing list is a chic pair of sunnies (or two). Not only will you be glad you have them to protect your peepers form harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays when the sun is shining, but they also instantly pull an outfit together. If you need a little style refresh, just pop on another pair of hot shades to change your whole look. Take a peek, below, at what we’ll be pairing with our eyewear this year.

Spring and summer has never been cooler thanks to this concert-ready garb. Pair a peasant-style top with distressed embroidered denim shorts for a nice juxtaposition. A straw hat is must for keeping the sun off your face, while funky patterned cat-eye sunnies, like these from Etnia Barcelona, are the perfect addition to protect your eyes. Slip on a comfy pair of sandals, grab your bag and head out to your first show. When it’s time for a change, tie a sweet red bandana around your neck and pop on oversized round sunglasses, like these from Chloé. The contrasting colors will surely catch everyone’s eye.

Meanwhile, dudes will look extra stylin’ in this outfit. A throwback tie-die shirt looks extra cool with distressed and faded jeans. Orange sneakers are a great way to add color, which will complement a citrus-inspired pair of shades, like these translucent frames from ZEAL. A neutral flat-brimmed hat, plus layered bracelets are fun additions, while a retro checked wallet on a chain is the perfect way to keep your valuables on-hand. If old-school design calls to you, try out a pair of round glasses with clip-on lenses, like these from prodesign denmark. The double bridge is totally-vintage, while the sleek black and brown hues mixed with the metal temples keep them modern and ultra-wearable.
