The futuristic style could take over the streets with modular pieces and reflective clothing gaining prominence after lockdowns. For her Coachella visit, businesswoman Natasha Poonawala wore a white top and holographic tassel miniskirt, layered over a pink jacket and furry shoes. Reflective sunglasses complete her look. To try futuristic fashion, consider non-traditional layering, reflective items and all things silver.


Comfort meets glamor

From sneakers instead of heels to loungewear becoming accessible in its elevated avatar, comfort now comes in a fashionable ensemble. Here, a Coachella attendee can be seen in a pink bra top and matching tulle skirt with white sneakers. For your next girls night out, you can combine comfort and glamor effortlessly by opting for a similar jumpsuit.


Be yourself!

The pandemic has encouraged many to express themselves unapologetically – bold hair colors, neutral clothing, or men opting for traditionally feminine prints or colors. Take for example this festival visitor, wearing bright blue-green hair extensions, a futuristic bra plate, deconstructed hoops and glasses. Add a splash of color to your look with a striking hair color.
