My Top Five 2022 Coachella Trends - This is not the report you're expecting
I, here in chilly cold Fernie BC, did spend the weekend glued to the Coachella Live feeds onn You Tube and I was not disappointed. In fact I was moved. Fashion and emotionally.
Here Are my biggest takeaways from Coachella 2022.
1. Jeans Shorts/Denim Trend
Ok like, the denim did not stop! It was the basic of choice for not only concert goers, but also most stage performances.
All I could think is, do my jean shorts from last year fit? If not I need to get new ones STAT. What a start to summer with the ultimate look.

2. Hairy Pits and No Bras
Im all here for it. I noticed this on a a number of artists with hairy pits, or no bra, or both! I mention because it was a contrast to the carefully crafted stage costumes. Thank you Maggie Rogers for the breath of fresh air after a pile of over the top costumes and makeup. And also her set blew me away, so much more electric electric energy over her album - that is the magic of live music!

3. 90s Throwbacks
Billie Elish hosted Blur and Gorillaz, Snoop Dogg joined Annita, but...
If you haven't heard, yes, Shania Twain popped out on stage and joined Harry Styles for his closing set.

4. Being Together Again
The theme was very clear, artists are happy to be back. They've been through a lot to say the least. This summer with events going ahead, pack some tissues, because its very emotional! Every artist touched on it.
Arcade Fire's suprise set was the most emotional of the weekend for me. Win the lead singer broke down at one point while starting to sing their new song, but pulled it together saying, the last 3 years have been hard. More here..
