hey everyone!

this is going to be my first year going to coachella.

I have read a few posts about clothes for girls

everyone says to wear long skirts because it is more comfortable than jeans, but what about shorts?> are they ok for coachella?

and sandals? bad idea? good idea?

Sandals are a bad idea if you plan on moving from stage to stage and being in the crowds. Your feet will get stepped on and sore in sandals. As far as bottoms, I'm wearing jeans, mostly for coverage (don't want leg sunburn) and to prevent chafing.

I'm planning on wearing shorts, but I've never been before. I'm kindof concerned about getting cold in the evenings though.

I discovered last year that underwear was the culprit of the infamous "chaff." All you really need is some shorts and an NWA shirt.

Have you looked at this (http://coachella.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2065) thread? It might be helpful.

Shorts I would imagine would be the most practical choice, before skirts or jeans. Personally, I don't wear shorts very often just because I don't think they look as good, but they'd be a good option for Coachella.

Also, sandals are a bad idea if you want to get near the front of the stage because your feet might get stepped on. Otherwise, I'd think they would be fine as long as they are comfortable enough to walk around in all day.

last year i wore jeans and a tank both days.. it was really hot in the day but i just rolled up my pants and it definetely helped. it got pretty cold at night too. i bought a sweatshirt both nights. but i would def reccomend jeans and vans. best way to go.

chaff is when your inner thighs rub against each other when walking. when it's really hot, you sweat & then your thighs kinda stick together while walking, thus chafing - rubbing & sticking & causing irritation for 3 days

I wore sandals in 05 and it was a mistake. no socks + lots and lots of walking = blisters.

you definetly need a jacket in the night, the day is incredibly hot and the nights get pretty chilly
