VbOHfBrs7Opt8BGr8yZBlUPgtb34ctrwNwW54QnP7HcAll street-style enthusiasts know that while Coachella Music Festival is, in fact, a music festival, fashion has come to be the soul of the scene. As social media explodes with photos of Coachella fashionistas, it’s impossible not to feel inspired—by which I mean suffer extreme fashion FOMO. But temperatures are finally rising here in Boston, and there are easy ways to incorporate Coachella style into your everyday East-Coast attire without looking like you’re in costume (or preparing to do drugs).

Snapshots from Coachella will show that many of the most stylish festival attendees have ditched intense neons and instead infused the obligatory festival hippie-chic style with a more muted, ’90s-inspired palette, which caters extremely well to translating these looks into real-life outfits. The overall aesthetic has a bewitched vibe: lightweight black and white fabrics with lace and eyelet details, chokers and lots of layered jewelry…For more inspiration, look to the 1996 cult classic movie The Craft, in which four rebellious, witchcraft-practicing Catholic school girls expertly combine their school uniforms with elements of ’90s grunge and nods to Stevie Nicks. This outfit is all about striking a balance between festival favorites and everyday staples; I give my crop top a dose of class by layering it with a white silk blouse. My tattoo choker and long coin necklace evoke the witchy festival spirit, while my silver collar, sophisticated clutch, and simple black booties elevate the look enough to take it out to brunch or for drinks. The result: No mo’ FOMO.

Go ahead and judge me.), J Brand coated ‘Maria’ skinny jeans, Loeffler Randall ‘Mini Agenda’ crossbody bag, MARC by Marc Jacobs combat boots circa 2005, sunglasses a la Nasty Gal.

I hope everyone made it through storm Juno safely—and with a Netflix account. Though the blizzard may be behind us, there are still plenty of cold and dark winter days ahead, which means we can continue to embrace all-black outfits without feeling like we’re cheating on our florals. Keeping it simple doesn’t have to look simple: statement outerwear and jewelry will prevent a monochromatic outfit from feeling drab.
