Fashion Trend Among Celebrities at Coachella? Wearing (Basically) Nothing

The Biggest Trend Among Celebrities at Coachella? Wearing (Basically) Nothing

Near-nakedness is the new choker.

Last 2017 year’s Coachella ushered in a whole new era for “street style” trends. No longer were festival-goers all but required to accessorize with a flower crown at best or a culturally appropriative piece of jewelry at worst; in 2016, chokers became the event’s mainstay, and there they remained until Kendall Jenner (of all people) proclaimed them dead in January. With the choker now being The Number One Faux Pas, what would replace it?

We don’t exactly have a single clear-cut answer for you. But we can say with some certainly that many celebrities went in the opposite direction of a sartorial trend — which is to say, nothing. Many famouses wore (basically) nothing.

And you know what? This is the most goddamn practical Coachella trend we’ve seen in recent years. Flower crowns are tacky (and can be peppered with thorns, which is, you know, dangerous), and chokers can make the wearer feel like they’re experiencing a moderate case of asphyxiation. Chill! By omitting clothes altogether, you’re just dressing appropriately for the weather. It’s going to be 94 degrees in Indio, Calif. on Monday. That’s very hot. These people are onto something.

Kylie Jenner and her highlighter hair wore this nude-colored backless mini dress, which, if you squint, just looks like skin.

…while her fellow Victoria’s Secret Angel Elsa Hosk wore a bralette with those butt-slash jeans. You know the jeans.

Hailey Baldwin also wore a bedazzled bra as a shirt.

And then there was Kendall Jenner, who, ahead of the Travis Scott show, changed into a very prominent thong beneath a black sheer shirt. Baldwin documented it on her Instagram Story (left), which has since been deleted.

Music Is Facing a Mental Health Crisis

Money is tight while they work long and weird hours, travel incessantly, are isolated from their friends and family at home, and have ample access to drinks and drugs. They write, record, release, and promote, and then repeat the cycle over and over again. And now, more than ever, the industry demands constant content, lest they are forgotten in the ocean of songs hitting Spotify every Friday. But then they get in the van and, especially in Canada, drive absurd distances between low-paying gigs for a tour they likely had to book themselves.
