Get Set for Coachella With our White Hot Spring Picks Under $130

Add texture to elevate basic white.

If you’re getting ready for Coachella (you’ve got t-minus one week to get out to Indio to soak up the sun and sounds, by the way), chances are, you’ll be leaving button-up blouses and your wardrobe of tailored trousers at home. The sun, fun and festival atmosphere bring out the boho babe in all of us, so it’s definitely time to take out those cutoffs, grab anything cropped — for comfort and on-trend cool — and cram everything lace, eyelet, crocheted or fringed in your wardrobe into your carry on. If you’ve got some time to spare, act quickly and snag some of our favorite touchable, textured white pieces that’ll look great during that last Arcade Fire encore and still serve your wardrobe well long after the sun’s set on Coachella’s fun. We’ve got great neutral pieces that’ll look fab with your go-to denim, work skirts and more, all ringing up under $130.

Minkpink Short Sleeved Lace Top

What Coachella look would be complete without an airy, lacy top? Grab this great, versatile one and you’ll be wearing it all summer long. The Minkpink Short Sleeved Lace Top ($56) is a frothy, ladylike take on a classic t-shirt silhouette and comes complete with a built-in tank so you don’t even have to go searching for a cami when you pull it out. For the festival, pair it with wedges and cutoffs and you’ll look like an off duty model, but take it to brunch by wearing your favorite jeans or a floral skirt.

Available at Bloomingdale’s.

Free People To the Point Mini Dress

If you’re looking for a one piece wonder, opt for the Free People To the Point Mini Dress ($128). It’s got lace embellishment and a few super-flattering inlay panels at the waist and bust that’ll give you some figure-flattering optical illusions. Get Glastonbury chic by pairing it with your Hunter boots (a la Kate Moss) or glam it up for after-hours drinks by pairing this summertime staple with strappy sandals. There’s even a surprise lace panel on the back so you’ll look great coming or going.

Available at Piperlime.

MICHAEL Michael Kors Distressed Boyfriend Jeans

Ladylike lace isn’t for everyone, so if you’re more about punk and borrowing from the boys, opt for something a little less prim and proper such as the MICHAEL Michael Kors Distressed Boyfriend Jeans ($99.50).

Artful distressing comes together with a classic slouchy boyfriend silhouette, giving you a clean canvas to let the rest of your outfit shine. But if you want all the attention on these jeans, you can go simple with a button-front blouse and simple sandals. Let the girls in cutoffs and filmy dresses shiver in the cold during those late-night sets (or risk missing a set during the day for a quick outfit change), these cool jeans will keep you warm all night long.

Rhyme Los Angeles Birdie Eyelet Skirt

If you think something like the sweet Rhyme Los Angeles Birdie Eyelet Skirt ($69) is too dressy for an occasion such as Coachella, think again. Pair this super feminine skirt with something that’ll offset its frills — think a chambray button up or a fringed, Stevie Nicks black blouse and chunky heels or lace-up summer gladiators — and you’ll be the picture of festival cool. Plus, this is a piece you’ll be able to wear to work all summer long paired with a blue blazer and your highest heels.

Available at Piperlime.

Steve Madden Destiney

Need a good neutral shoe to wear with these summer whites? The Steve Madden Destiney Flats ($60) glam up the classic espadrille with a gleaming gold toe, but the neutral, nubby fabric lends a little hand-hewn touch. Wear these with any of your Coachella standbys and you’ll be able to push through the crowds without digging heels into the dirt or risk discomfort from sky-high wedges. These summer staples will also work for the rest of the heat wave, too, so feel free to pair these with any of your sundresses, rompers and maxi skirts.
