19 Coachella-inspired looks that AREN’T cutoff shorts

Festival fashion is as controversial as pineapple on pizza, or who Rory should end up with on Gilmore Girls (Team Jess for life). And while some people wholeheartedly embrace the cutoff shorts and flower crowns that are staples of the fashionable Coachella crowd, others cringe at the mere thought of putting those items anywhere near their bodies.

If you fall into the latter category — or if you’re simply tired of your blouse-y top/denim cutoffs/ankle boots ensemble — we’ve got you covered.
