Coachella Couture

[Trendzilla] What the hipsters will wear at the annual Indio indie-fest

It's that time of the year again: that annual desert trek to Coachella.

Here are three trends you're bound to see out in the polo fields this year, most of which aren't so practical. But hey, when has practicality ever stopped a hipster? Stay hydrated.

 

FEATHER HAIR EXTENSIONS
One of the least offensive things you'll find on this list, as long as it's used in moderation: the thin, striped-feather hair extensions that have been all over Los Angeles and New York since the start of winter 2010-2011.

This latest version was, arguably, started up by jewelry and handbag designer Wendy Nichol of Manhattan. Inspired by Native American style, Nichol's extensions can be dried, curled and washed, and are attached via a silicone-covered pain-free clamp. And they're only $45.

Both Etsy and eBay offer a large variety of DIY extensions on the cheap.

 

NAIL STRIPS
We first mentioned press-on film for your fingernails in 2009. Called Minx, they were like heat-sensitive film for your hands, and it was an easy, fuss-free, no-dry-time-necessary way to a manicure that lasted weeks. But a Minx manicure can cost almost $100 and has to be done by a professional.

Sally Hansen's new line of Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips offers a similar result that you can apply at home. This $9.99 version will last well over 10 days, making it perfect for a chip-free manicure that'll stay perfect through a vacation . . . or a three-day stint in the desert.

Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips are available at all major drugstores and Ulta locations.

 

SPIRIT HOODS
These are just fuzzy hoods with plush ears and a scarf attached. The scarf also features a pocket for your hands, and yes, the pockets look like paws. They've been spotted on the likes of Ke$ha and Pink, and really resemble all the overly cutesy stuff that's been coming out of Japan for years.

There's a panda, grizzly bear, wolf (three kinds, actually), polar bear, lion . . . and they go for $119 to $199. That's right.

Hopefully even the hipsters will be smart enough to not bring these out until after sundown. The few redeeming factors, other than the fact that some evil genius somewhere is laughing all the way to the bank: Spirit Hoods are made out of faux fur and a portion of the proceeds is donated to wildlife conservation. So, uh, there's that.
