Designers borrowed elements from all coastlines of the Gulf of Mexico to create the image of an island gypsy gone surfin’ safari. There were Rastafarian-hued maxis paired with sneakers at Tommy Hilfiger, head-to-toe tie-dye and cornrows at Valentino, and striped sarapes paired with loose-pants at Ulla Johnson. This anything-goes mix and match trend demonstrates festival culture’s clear impact on high fashion. Construct your look accordingly: mix sneakers with colorful maxi skirts and loose tunic tops, throw in as much tie-dye and crochet detail as you like. More discreet land-lubbers can still ride the wave with an eclectic necklace or tie-dye clutch. Opt for long, fluid silhouettes, which say ‘Caribbean Queen,’ while micro-rompers and teeny-triangle tops scream ‘Coachella Tart.’
