Coachella Style Superlatives

There are only two events that magnetically compel me down to the level of thirst that entails checking Twitter, Instagram and E! online 40+ times per day for photos of people’s outfits: Coachella and the Met Gala. As Coachella’s Class of 2016 rolled in for weekend 1 this past Friday, I nearly assaulted my refresh button on Instagram and Twitter- and just so all my obsessing doesn't go to waste, of course, I’m giving the Coachella Class of 2016 the regular high school treatment with some (style) superlatives.


To open the Coachella Yearbook for the year 2016, I’d like to commemorate my queen of 2015’s Coachella festival: Cailin Russo. That long sleeved For Love and Lemons pink transparent crop top under overalls? I spent a good chunk of my life trying to recreate that look. The silky kimonos, the bodysuits, the septum ring, the sunglasses, the headwrap- IT ALL JUST LOOKED SO COOL AND CURATED. 2015 was Caichella, according to this virtual yearbook.


Now on to the NEW KIDS!! (Well, mostly all the same kids... that’s how it's like in high school, anyway, so I guess it works out).



STYLE SUPERLATIVES AS TOLD BY CAROLINE KLOSTER WHO APPARENTLY KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT FESTIVAL FASHION: COACHELLA CLASS OF 2016


COACHELLA SQUAD THAT PRODUCED THE MOST SLAYAGE AS A GROUP: Victoria’s Secret Angels Taylor Hill, Romee Strijd, Jasmine Tookes, and Josephine Skriver



BEST HAIR COLOR: Kylie Jenner
Recently I haven't been a huge fan of Kylie's style, but I was so pleased with her look for day one because she balanced out dramatic-ly styled hair with an understated outfit. The simple white tee and denim cutoff combo gave the peach-colored hair the moment it needed!!


THE SECOND RECIPIENT(S) OF THE KENDALL JENNER JORTS AWARD (PREVIOUSLY AWARDED TO KENDALL JENNER) FOR BEST INCORPORATION OF DENIM JORTS: Amanda Steele and Hailey Baldwin
Okay, let's just quickly flash back to Kendall Jenner's day one look from Coachella 2015:
This look opened my eyes to the thought of jorts (jean shorts, but for some reason I associate the word with knee-length denim shorts) being able to actually work, so whenever I see people wearing said "jorts" I always think of Kendall. Amanda Steele and Hailey Baldwin rocked some jorts during Coachella 2016, so I'm applauding them for continuing to perpetuate the "JORTS CAN BE COOL!!!!" movement.



MOST LIKELY TO INCORPORATE PANTS THAT AREN’T FLOWY TRIBAL PRINT PANTS BUT STILL LOOK AMAZING: Romee Strijd
Two for two for Romee! Angels fly high. Since it's quite hot in the desert, the only long pants usually spotted are loose (and often tribal printed). I loved seeing Romee do something different and the whole look was sick!!


BEST HAIR STYLE: Coachella Class of 2016
I'm awarding this to all attendees of Coachella 2016 because the hair this go-around was amazing. I was so happy to see so many cornrows, headwraps, French braids, half-up buns, etc!!
(Sydney Carlson, Gabby Epstein, Taylor Hill, Kendall Jenner, Josephine Skriver)


KEWLEST COUPLE: Amanda Steele and Markel Williams
I don't really have much to say besides the fact that they are cute and cool at the same time and this photo has me dying so I'll just leave this here.
