Some things never go out of style at Coachella: cutoffs with bikini tops (preferably crocheted), floral wreaths, white people in headdresses, bare skin, ironic fanny packs and anything with fringe. We saw plenty of that today as well as Aztec prints, washed out neon, oversized floral prints and clothes that light up brighter than the Sahara Tent. There were also quite a few people in costumes inspired by Millenials' favorite cartoons; they looked like they'd be a nightmare to wear under the noonish Indio sun—and a nightmare to get out of during the inevitable trip to the porta-potty.
