What We Wore (Coachella Edition): Laura Simola

"Since this was my first experience at Coachella, I gathered as much info as I could from seasoned Coachella-goers, like my colleagues and friends.

I borrowed InStyle Deputy Photo Director Michelle Egiziano’s LeSportsac animal print fanny pack, which was incredibly helpful. Believe me, hands-free and arms-free was the way to go. Since the festival is set in the desert, I packed light, breezy dresses and breathable pieces to keep cool—it got unbelievably hot during the day! With that said, I heard the temperature cools down at night, so I made sure to bring a kimono (worn above) to protect me from chilly breezes. Finally, sunscreen and sunglasses were definite musts… and comfortable shoes, since I knew I was going to be on my feet all day, stage-hopping.

There was so much inspiration packed into one weekend—from the music (Pharrell, Calvin Harris, Ellie Goulding, and HAIM were my top faves), to the art installations (which were handy spots to meet up with friends), and the eclectic festival style—it was truly magical. Now it’s time to start counting down the days ‘til next year’s Coachella!!”

— Laura Simola, InStyle Assistant Art Director

What We’re Wearing: Overalls at the Office
"My entire first grade class can attest to the fact that I wore overalls to school every single day (almost exclusively from Gap Kids and OshKosh). Needless to say, I was on board with the trend when it made a high-fashion comeback. But, having grown a solid two feet since, I was struggling to find a pair that would look flattering and not childlike. My eyes lit up when I came across this pair by Paige Denim. The dark wash gives the tried-and-true style a modern update, and teaming it with ankle boots is a mature departure from my go-to patent leather Mary Janes.” — Claire Stern, InStyle Editorial Assistant

What We’re Wearing: Overalls to Work!
"In elementary school, from grades 1-5, I literally wore nothing but Gap and designer overalls. It was my thing—I loved them because they were so comfortable. I was excited they were making a comeback, so I wanted to get a good pair that would last a long time. My mom bought these for me for Christmas last year, and they’re made with super-soft denim.
I styled them with an Oxford to make it a little more office-appropriate. Plus, I always like putting a menswear-inspired spin on my outfits.” — Lauren Ciaccia, InStyle Fashion AssistantOutfit breakdown:Oxford shirt: Vintage Van HeusenOveralls: Current/ElliottShoes: Dries Van Noten

What We Wore to New York Fashion Week: Melissa Rubini
We caught Melissa Rubini right before she braved the brutal cold during New York Fashion Week. How did the InStyle Style Director stay chic and warm? Layers of gray and a bold rid lip. That all-sequined gradient Prada clutch alone is enough to make a statement.

What We’re Wearing: Boyfriend Jeans, Styled Two Ways

We’re making the case for boyfriend jeans! We love them for their slouchy silhouette and their effortlessly cool look. InStyle Senior Market Editor/Digital Correspondent Dana Avidan-Cohn reveals how to pull them off:

1. Always mix in more tailored pieces, like a blazer and heels, to avoid looking frumpy.

2. If you have never ordered this style, try sizing down because they tend to run big.

3. For a true weekend look, wear them with a tee, leather jacket and loafer slippers.

On Dana: 

Blazer: Brooks Brothers
Button-Down: Theory
Boyfriend jeans: Rag & Bone
Shoes: Vince
Necklace: Chadwick Bell
