Festival Fashion Beyonce Models The Hottest Women's Trend At Coachella 2015

Coachella is the first major festival of the year and it always serves as a handy barometer of the key trends that will be seen at festivals throughout the year.

Festival fashion is fast becoming a fashion season in it's own right. In the same way that designers launched cruise collections to satisfy customer demand for new looks mid-season, now brands such as H&M - which sponsored the event for the sixth year in a row - roll out dedicated festival collections.

So what were the key trends of Coachella 2015 that you can expect to see at festivals this summer?

Festival trend: Seventies
Unsurprisingly the catwalk trend for seventies inspired fashion led the pack, as expertly modelled by Beyoncé in the gif above.

"There's been a huge nod to 70s, 'I'm with the band' style this year at Coachella - think suede, fringing, fluid silhouettes and bohemian print florals," says freelance fashion journalist and HuffPost UK blogger Hannah Rogers.

"Sadly we Brits don't have the dependable desert weather, but if I was heading for a festival this summer, I'd be channelling Kendall Jenner's day two outfit: a gypsy-esque crop-top, high waisted maxi skirt and excellent gold accessories."

"Festivals are one of the only places where you are absolutely free to wear what you want without judgement or pressure - so the brighter and bolder the better, rainbow/psychedelic colours, or animal inspired costumes stand out from the herd," adds BritChick Paris, writer of The Ugly Little Girl.

"Also you can't go wrong with flower power chic, mellow yellow flares, floppy hats, big sunglasses - all perfect attire for blissing out."
