What to Wear to Coachella, Based on Your Favorite Lana Album

Are you a Born to Die babe or an Ocean Blvd baddie?

What to Wear to Coachella, Based on Your Favorite Lana Album

Tumblr girls rejoice—Lana Del Rey is taking the main stage at Coachella this year. We’re ready to relive our greatest 2014 fantasy—although it’s probably best you leave that flower crown in the back of your closet next to all your American Apparel V-necks. If you’re still piecing together the ensemble you’ll wear when you finally get to scream “down at the Men in Music Business conference,” why not look toward the legend’s discography for inspiration? Behold, the official Coveteur guide to constructing your Coachella fit based on your favorite Lana record.

Unreleased Tracks/Born to Die

It’s hard to listen to early Lana without thinking about the coquette aesthetic—a youthful, feminine look that emphasizes lace, bows, and cute prints. (Consider “This Is What Makes Us Girls," in which Lana and her girlfriends run around with “ribbons in [their] hair.”) If you want to embody this era, look no further than Lisa Says Gah. The LA-based brand (there’s a brick-and-mortar location in Echo Park) carries plenty of pieces that are playful yet sophisticated, such as this tie-front blouse and this floral skort. L’école Des Femmes is another powerhouse when it comes to coquette fashion: the label's Marquise Eyelet Dress is to die for, and the Strawberry Cotton Top is absolutely precious.

L’ecole Des Femmes


Ultraviolence is all about playing with the femme fatale archetype—cultivating an aura that radiates “Money Power Glory,” so to speak. One might interpret this theme by going for tailored, business chic pieces in darker hues—Ganni has plenty of items that fit the bill, such as this pinstriped tank. Another route would be to aim for the “linen and curls” look that Lana describes in the title track by pairing a sexy slip (like this one from Free People or this one from Agent Provocateur) with a dramatic jacket. You might want to thrift some fur from a cute consignment shop (if you’re in LA, try Wasteland), or you could go faux with this shawl from Jennafer Grace or this coat from N’onat. You could also take a cue from “Cruel World” and put on a “red party dress”—check out this one from Gil Rodriguez, this one from Reformation, and this one from Diesel.

In the Honeymoon cover art, Lana is the picture of elegant ennui in a floppy pink hat and shades. If this record’s your fave, we recommend that you steal her style—after all, UV exposure in sunny Coachella Valley is no joke. Eugenia Kim has a hat with a pretty pink brim that conjures up Lana’s look. If you want something a little different, you’ll definitely turn heads in the Scalloped Dolce Hat from Lack of Color. Of course, the oversized sunglasses are also necessary. If you want something similar to Lana’s cat-eyed frames, try one of these pairs from Lele Sadoughi. If you’d rather mix it up, try these cuties from Ophy, these from Dries Van Noten, or these from Jacquemus.

Lust for Life

Lust for Life is rife with references to the free-spirited ’60s and ’70s. Lana wears flowers in her hair on the cover, sings about “groupie love,” and fantasizes about Coachella as a modern-day iteration of Woodstock. Stevie Nicks even pops in for a cameo. What we’re getting at is, if you’re a Lust for Life girl, it’s imperative that you go for the boho chic look. If you want to aim for authenticity, see if you can scoop up a vintage Jessica McClintock Gunne Sax dress—all the rage for California Dreamers during the peace and love era. For a more modern take on hippie couture, try this dress from Free People, this one from Hunter Bell, or this one from Boteh.

Norman Fucking Rockwell

As the name implies, Norman Fucking Rockwell summons up visions of classic Americana. In this historic shift to a more personal songwriting style, Lana puts the “red dress” aside and slips into her favorite staples: “I dream in jeans and leather,” she sings on “Venice Bitch.” If Norman Fucking Rockwell is your go-to Lana album, we suggest you do the same. AllSaints has an expansive selection of leather jackets; if you’re looking for a more lightweight (or more affordable) option, LA Apparel carries a leather button-up. Round off your look with a tried-and-true pair of denim shorts (such as the 501s from Levi), a cropped jean that'll show off a cute pair of shoes (such as this pair from Frame), or a tastefully distressed option (such as this pair from Abrand Jeans).

Chemtrails over the Country Club

If you’re a Chemtrails girl, you know what you have to do… put on that white dress! The LBD gets a lot of love; it’s time we talk about the LWD, her more spring-appropriate sister. We recommend something short and sweet, like this corset dress from Kitteny, this lacy number from Nodress, or this sheer mini from Raga Malak. Just watch out for stains!

Lana was spot on when she named a track “Black Bathing Suit”—after all, it’s one of the most quintessential items a woman can have in her wardrobe. If you, too, want to exude a timeless aura, consider incorporating a black bikini top into your Coachella fit. (It’s also a practical choice, given the weather in Indio—just make sure you’re slathering on plenty of sunscreen.) Belle the Label offers some striking silhouettes—the brand's Clio top is simple yet flattering, while the Flora top stands out with its fun frills. Jade Swim also has some creative cuts, such as the Halo top with its crossbody strap and the Zuri top with its eye-catching golden ring.

Did You Know That There's a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd

Did You Know That There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd was, dare we say, the album of 2023—and we’re still blasting it a year later. If this album is your favorite, try taking inspiration from Lana’s iconic Interview photo shoot. Paint your eyelids blue and deck yourself out in Christcore attire inspired by Lana’s Mirror Palais dress and Chrome Hearts cross necklace. If you want to go really bold, check out this hand-chained Crucifix Top from Catholic Guilt Clothing. If you’d prefer a more subtle nod, accessorize with the Holier Than Thou pendant from Stonehart Jewelry or this rosary necklace from Dolce & Gabbana.
