Festival Style | Stagecoach Outfit Guide SWELL Photo Assistant 's Picks to Get Styled-Out for the "Mane" Stage
Festival season is still upon us and although Coachella has gone and past we still have a summer full of great music and even better style! Stagecoach may not be as well known for its fashion—but trust me when I say there’s still a “festival look” befitting this awesome country music filled weekend. Our photo assistant MacKenzie is sharing her 3 must have looks to guide you through this festival season:
Headliner: Tim McGraw: “Someday you’ll be looking back on your life at the memories; this is going to be one of those nights.”
Day 1: My first outfit is an all American girl look. I wanted to stay sweet and southern, while still being boho-chic. A romper is the perfect festival outfit when you are dancing the night away front row to your favorite song. My 3 must haves include flirty florals, statement sunglasses, and of course a pair of good ol’ cowgirl boots.
Celebrity fashion inspiration: Maddie & Tae and Kacey Musgrave’s.
Headliner: Miranda Lambert

Festive Sounds: STRFKR at CRSSD Styles, Sounds & Sights at Southern California's Newest Music Festival
Festival season kicked off at CRSSD Fest with the best indie electronica coming outta Portland since Portugal. The Man. Bay front in San Diego, the boys of STRFKR had girls dancing in the fountains and losing their minds with the dreamy beats.
Origin of Name “Starfucker”: started off as a joke, but the band’s success under the name grew rapidly. In response to this success, and with the guidance of a business agent, they briefly changed their name to (more…)
Back in action this year:
– Flower crowns and festival headwear.
– Cut off daisy dukes, (or as we were cleverly coining them, “naughty mom shorts”).
– Body paint and colorful bedazzled skin adornments.
– Eccentric eyewear, utilized this year not only for statement flair but also protective shields against dust and windstorms this year.
– Bikini tops and bustiers, no need for shirts when navigating the Indio Polo Fields in the summer heat.
OutKast, Main Stage closing set Friday Night
Friday night marked the reuniting of one of the most influential acts in rap music, albeit for a crowd that maybe wasn’t ready or as generally excited for such the momentous occasion. Saving radio hits for the closing numbers they pulled from a set list spanning their entire career, including “Aquemini,” “Skew It On A Barbeque,” and an explosive version of “Bombs Over Baghdad,” to start off the set. Several guests joined them throughout their performance including Future debuting a new track, Sleepy Brown joining in for “So Fresh and So Clean” and most impressively Janelle Monae gracing the stage for her collaborative performance of “Tightrope,” with Andrew 3000. A weary crowd, half dominated by a pre-Stankonia generation of EDM enthusiasts, didn’t give quite the response that most would anticipate for the kick off to a massive summer festival tour. Die hard fans however, were pleasantly surprised by the song choice and were bouncing along in camaraderie the entire set.
