Coachella Style, Day 1: 61 Photos Of Ninja Turtles, Pasties And Aztec Prints

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

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.
