With Hollywood stars such as Kate Hudson and top models like Cara Delevingne attending Coachella and the like, it’s no longer acceptable to rock up to a music festival in any old gear.
But what with the cost of the tickets and the camping to consider, do you set aside some money to spend on your outfits or is there anyway that you can still look great and save a few pennies? We think you can do both.
