It seems Coachella style is sweeping the nation at the moment.

As the iconic indie music festival has been rocking the southern Californian desert, every celebrity young and old has been vigorously uploading their outfits on social media with lots of amazing outfits on display.

The music festival, which runs for two consecutive weekends this month in Palm Springs, has drawn in quite a crowd for its 2015 shows. From models Kendall Jenner, Jourdan Dunn and Gigi Hadid, actors Bradley Cooper and Leonardo DiCaprio to mega superstars like Katy Perry, Justin Bieber and Fergie - everyone who's anyone has been seen partying in the crowds at Coachella.

So how do you pick the perfect outfit for Coachella or any music festival in fact? With Glastonbury coming up you can expect boho mini dresses with Hunter muddy boots but for Americans, Coachella is a lot more fun and experimental. Rihanna shocked and wowed with her giant Aztec necklace (used in replacement of a bra) as she watched rapper Drakes set earlier this week. Using an oversized poncho to cover up and rocking a brightly coloured pair of leggings, the controversial singer looked incredible as did Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie. The mother of one went for a more polished look with round silver sunglasses and plenty of tassels to give her look a special twist, fitting in perfectly with her younger contemporaries.

Kendall Jenner and younger sister Kylie made an appearance at Coachella on the first day bringing plenty of style. Dressed in a light gypsy top and black skirt with a chunky silver belt, Kendall looked every inch the fashionable festival goer complete with lots of long gold necklaces. She was later joined by celebrity pals Hailey Baldwin, Cody Simpson and Justin Bieber - who was reportedly thrown out of Coachella for his disorderly behaviour. While Victoria's Secret supermodel, Alessandra Ambrosio, attended the festival with a gaggle of girlfriends, all dressed in white and pastel colours. Teaming their simple outfits with plenty of accessories, this is a great way you can brighten up any outfit.

Over here in the UK, the high street stores have clearly embraced the Coachella spirit. H&M have launched a whole collection dedicated to the music festival, suitably titled 'Coachella,' which consists of soft floral tops, tasselled bags, bold crop tops and funky jewellery. Topshop have also included a number of festival worthy pieces in their spring collection - think Aztec print dresses and across the body bags. Online retailers such as, Miss Guided and Asos have also used Coachella as a clever spring selling point, with special offers and markdowns on a lot of their more hippy styles. So what are you waiting for? Get involved with Coachella and the spring sunshine by brightening up your wardrobe today.
