The 5 Coolest Denim Trends Spotted at Coachella

Our feeds were filled to the brim with palm trees, tie-dye, sundresses, and that famous Ferris wheel this weekend because all the festival-going people we follow on Instagram headed to Coachella, of course. Love it or hate it, the music festival brings out some of the coolest, wackiest, most fun, and free-spirited sartorial delights to the California desert over two weekends in April, and we’re here to bring you some of the best outfits we’ve seen so far. Today, we’re honing in on the denim trends we spotted at the festival—because let’s face it nothing says Coachella quite like a pair of denim cut-off shorts. Scroll below to see the coolest denim trends we spotted at the fun-loving festival and how fashion girls are styling them.

While longer denim shorts were having a moment at Coachella, so were shorts of the polar opposite length. Call them short-shorts, denim underwear, or janties—they were seen on brave and confident women all around the festival.
