The Best Coachella 2019 Outfits

The Best Coachella 2019 Outfits

The first weekend of Coachella 2019 is done and dusted. And although we have FOMO from No-chellea for us, we loved seeing the different outfits.

This year there was a lot more glamour on show rather than the usual outfits. And some of them looked SO amazing! Sequins and white boots are in!

We did see a lot of swimwear as outfits and to that we say “Live and let live”, but we just couldn’t help but wonder how comfortable and practical that is after the end of a very long day!🤔 And any girl who’s ever worn a jumpsuit knows the bathroom struggles!

Here are some of the best Coachella 2019 outfits to inspire your festival attire this summer…

The Best Coachella 2019 Outfits

One of our absolute faves at Coachella this year was Michaela O’ Shaughnessy. We loved all of Michalea’s weekend outfits, but this one was our winner because it just felt like the traditional Coachella/California vibe; relaxed, comfortable but still so stylish!

Don’t be afraid to go full on with the glamour at festivals – as long as it’s still practical! We loved Noelle’s “sugar plum festival fairy” look and that YSL bag is to die for – although the idea of having such a fab bag at a festival is giving us serious anxiety!

Kaelin Fox wore an incredible For Love & Lemons Stardust Maxi Dress and we are obsessed! Definitely one of our absolute fave looks from the whole weekend!

See, we told you white boots are officially the must-have when it comes to Coachella 2019 outfits! How fab is Rachel’s multi-coloured dress?

If full-on glamour isn’t your thing and if you prefer a more laid-back festival look, Lauren Arthurs is your inspo! Lauren wore this Nasty Gal That’s the Sway Fringe Jacket and we need it!

If white boots aren’t your thing, so for the always trust-worthy white converse like Lorna, aka LC’s Closet. We love how chic and simple this outfit is.

Retro Flame is a bit of a Coachella veteran by now, but we think that this is our all-time favourite look from Erika! We found something very similar from PrettyLittleThing for €50!

A Modern Take On 90s Fashion Trends

It was kind of an alarming realisation for Team Missy that most of you reading this are 00’s babies, officially making us nineties babies old relics. But lucky for us the 90’s are SO in right now. Thanks in no small part to the incredible Derry Girls the nineties are taking over fashion again. Thankfully it isn’t as much of an assault on the eyes as the first time around.

Here’s how you can work some 90s fashion into your wardrobe without looking like you’ve been caught in a time-warp.

Hair Clips and Scrunchies

Take it from us; you were doing 90s fashion wrong if you didn’t have a million hair slides or butterfly clips. We’ve already told you why we are obsessed with the hair slide trend but we are also here for scrunchies! As demonstrated in To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before a scunchie is VERY important! Penneys, Claires and Topshop have lots of great options. The rule with scrunchies is the bolder looking the better and go super high with your ponytail!

Mom Jeans

The first signs that 90s fashion was on the way back was reappearance of the Mom Jeans a few years ago. Although we are ride or die for black skinny jeans it is nice to be comfy without wearing a tracksuit. Also, can we just write and ode to high-waisted everything?! Sometimes cuts can be a bit weird on Mom Jeans, so shop around and try them on until you find the perfect fit. We love these ones from Topshop or the original Levi’s, which are available in Kildare Village BTW!

Platform Trainers

I’ll tell you what I want what I really really want(ed) in the 90s, Platform Runners like Baby Spice! With the Spice Girls set to play Dublin next month it might just be time for me to make my 6-year-old dreams come true and invest in these. Well, maybe not the ones that Baby Spice is wearing in the above picture – they are insane! Also spot a 13-year-old Prince Harry! The return of the platform trainers have divided a lot of people.

Chokers

The ultimate 90s fashion piece was the choker! New Look are selling the “authentic” ones that ruled the 90’s, but we love Missoma’s offerings, which are much more wearable and so pretty.

 

A Modern Take On 90's Fashion Trends

Slip Dress

Yes, it looks a lot like a nightdress, but a slip dress can look amazing. We are obsessed with this one from Nasty Gal and it’s currently reduced to €24! If it feels a bit too out there for you wear it over a plain white t-shirt for the ultimate 90s fashion look.

Bumbags

You knew you were going on holidays when the bumbag came out! We are glad that we left the original bumbags back in the 90’s, but we are loving the modern take on them because they have reminded us just how handy they are. Even though we’re pretty sure our allowance wont allow us a Gucci bumbag we LOVE this designer-like offering from PrettyLittleThing.

Flannel Shirts

British YouTuber Emily Canham managed to tick off lots of 90’s fashion trends in this one look with Dr. Marten boots, mom jeans and a flannel shirt! We love the idea of using flannel shirt for the awkward in-between weather when it’s too warm for a coat but too cold to go without.

Spring Fashion Essentials

Spring has sprung…apparently. It’s definitely still cold, but there’s no denying that it’s time to pack away the winter coats and start dipping your toes in Spring fashion.

Here are the 4 Spring fashion essentials that you need in your wardrobe…

Black Denim Jacket

You can never go wrong with a trusty denim jacket. We love a good black denim jacket because it just goes with EVERYTHING. Size-up, or even hit up the mens department to get one that will allow you to layer a hoodie under it during the chillier moment of spring. Our top pick is this Topshop Womens Oversized Denim Jacket.

Wear it with mom jeans or throw it on over a dress for the perfect day or night look. This is worth investing in now because not only will it see you through the next 6 months at least, it’s a piece you will have in your wardrobe for years to come.

Floral Midi Skirt

If there’s one thing that you’re going to see everywhere over the next few months it’s the midi skirt. Bonus points for a floral midi skirt. Wear it with Docs, Converse, ankle boots or Vans and then sandals come summer. For something that will cost you under €30 it’s a solid investment. We love this New Look ditsy floral midi skirt

Green With Envy

We’re calling it now; sage green is officially the colour when it comes to spring fashion. We don’t know what it is about the colour, but there’s something really calming and cheerful about it, making it perfect for spring. We are obsessed with this Green spot skort playsuit – so cute and perfect for the day with sandals during the summer or dress it up with heels.

I’m With The Band

Another versatile addition to spring fashion is the band t-shirt. Perfect for throwing on with jeans or with your floral midi skirt. The only difficulty is trying to pick one. Prince T-Shirts are super popular. Take your pick because Nasty Gal, Missguided AND Boohoo all have a Prince Purple Rain T-Shirt. Personally, we kinda want to be South Side Serpents like Betty Cooper!

What do you think of our Spring Fashion picks?

Trending: Hair Slides

It’s funny how you go from seeing something once or twice on Instagram and then it seems to morph into a huge trend overnight! So it is with hair slides!

Sure, they’re something we would have worn when we were 6 years old, but they’re just so pretty. And they’re a great way to add a bit of sparkle an outfit!

 

The Inspo

We love how simple and girly Kate La Vie‘s hair clips are. They’re a great way to do something simple but different with your hair and a Godsend if you’re in the awkward stage of growing out a fringe.

We are big fans of  What She Does Now at missy.ie, seriously go follow Amy right now! Amy is fuelling our love of hair clips with her simple, but cute pearl hair slides. Sadly Amy’s Hair Clips from ASOS are currently sold out, but we’re crossing our fingers that they get them back in ASAP.

Even though we love the simplicity of a small hair slide, Kaelin Fox shows that you can still make a big statement by wearing lots of clips all at once. This trend is especially a big one on the red carpet at the moment too.

One of the things that we love about the hair slides trend is that it’s cheap and cheerful. There are lots of options available from Penneys, Accessorize and Claire’s Accessories. We’ve shared some of our favourites below.

Fashion Forecast: Spring/Summer Fashion Trends 2019

With winter drawing to a close, for most it means throwing away the winter coats and wooly jumpers. For us Irish though, we don’t exactly have the climate where we can afford to put away the winter clothes for another year, but we can still get excited for the upcoming trends coming our way in the spring and summer months. 

Bike Shorts

Whether you love them or loathe them, cycling shorts will be staying around for a while longer. They made their appearance on the runways of Chanel, Roberto Cavalli and Prada. Cycling shorts will be your new favourite wardrobe piece, comfy, versatile and best of all cheap (for the most part). For your casual everyday look just team with an oversized tee, chunky trainers and you’re good to go!

 

Jumpsuits

Now this is one item I was very happy to see on the runways. What’s not to love about a jumpsuit? When the weather starts to get that little bit warmer a flowy, lightweight fabric jumpsuit is the perfect go-to. Worn with trainers and a cropped denim jacket for a daytime look but can take you straight to nighttime simply with a pair of heels. Cute AND practical.

Shop The Look:Mustard Contrast Stripe Bandeau Culotte Jumpsuit

Raincoats

One item especially suited to us Irish folk and our extremely unpredictable weather; the raincoat. An essential item of clothing fo us, and now seen across many runways in all shapes and colours. One that reoccurred was the see-through plastic raincoats on the Marc Jacobs and Fendi fashion shows. Expect to see a lot of statement raincoats in shops soon!

Shop The Look:Yellow Cobie Holographic Rain Mac

The Tailored Suit

Not exactly a new trend, but one that is here to stay a bit longer. The return of the suit is here and this time it is in an array of vivid colours; citrus shades and eye-catching hues of pinks and blues. If you’re not confident enough to go for the full tailored suit look, you can still be on-trend by just adding a blazer with a pop of colour to your wardrobe. Bonus points for neon colours!

Handbags

Handbags really did steal the show across this years catwalks. From quirky patterns and geometric shapes, there were styles to cater to everyone. Get ready for your bag to become your statement piece over the coming months! Here are just a few of the bags that graced the catwalks of some of the biggest designers and how you can get the look yourself.

Statement Winter Coats for Winter 2018!

We at Missy are fond of a Winter Coat. But why settle for a boring coat when you can have a statement coat? Let’s be honest, coats are a big part of fashion in Ireland, as the chilly weather lasts for a good 6 months, a coat is all we see of an outfit for half the year! This is why a statement winter coat is a wardrobe staple! We’ve put together some of our favourite statement coats, check them out below!

1) Leopard Print

Leopard print is a big statement whether it’s worn as a skirt, a jumper, or a coat! You’ve probably seen them in most shops this year, and it looks like the trend is here to stay for a while so why not invest? We love these faux fur options below, especially the collared coat from Topshop. Nastgal’s option is also fab, but we think Boohoo have won with their cute take on the trend!

2) Faux Fur

So technically, our leopard print options above are faux fur, but how cute are these faux fur bomber style jackets?! Make a statement with Winter colours like this Boohoo blue coat, or this dark green Nastygal jacket! Go more muted with this Topshop baby pink faux fur coat – perfect to transition into Spring!

3) Red Coats

Netflix’s Sabrina has definitely caused a rise in the red statement coat trend, and we’re happy to embrace it! If you’re after Sabrina’s look, this Topshop coat is almost identical to hers. In the line for something a bit more practical for the Winter months? This Boohoo coat is perfect to keep you warm! Not a fan of full on red? Make a statement with an edge with this New Look check coat!  

 

What do you think of our picks? Will you be investing in any this Winter?
