We show you how to get this free-spirited look in time for Coachella.

Kaleidoscopic prints always take centre stage in festival look books. You can’t go wrong with a bold ikat or tribal print. Accessorise with pops of neon colour, fringe detail and a touch of lace.

Circular sunglasses are back in fashion in a big way and are ideal to work into a festival look. They come in all colours from classic black to retro neon – there’s a pair of shades for any mood or style.

Moto boots have replaced sneakers as this festival season’s footwear of choice. Chunky boots, boxing-style lace-ups and hi-tops are all the rage and have an added bonus to the ballet pumps of last year: your feet won’t suffer quite as much when you’re moshing, when someone stands on your toe or when you’re tiptoeing through mud or dust to get to the next show!

A more feminine footwear option for a cute festival get-up is a pair of sexy espadrilles. These are best worn with a pair of short shorts, which are the next trend you can’t miss – the shorter, the better. Denim hippy-chic shorts with ruffles, studs or floral embellishments are all the rage for making a fashion statement yet still working a cool, casual vibe for a relaxed daytime look.

Which brings us to this summer’s hottest must-have: dungarees. A perfect combination of cheeky and utilitarian, dungarees are perfect for lolling around on the grass and strutting your summer stuff.

Maxidresses are another key festival piece: fresh, feminine and easy to wear, you can’t go wrong with a long floral-print frock.

On the accessories front, bohemian-style jewellery is making a comeback so ditch the fake pearls and opt for hand-made pendants. Bangles, chunky necklaces and long earrings can tie a look together.

Festival chic brings out the inner prairie girl in you. Embrace it and work your own festival flair.
