The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival may have come and gone like a cool summer’s breeze, however, Italian “It” girls are not packing away their festival-inspired apparel just yet. Whether it be bohemian designed vests and blouses, tribal-printed, car wash skirts, or classic rock-and-roll tees and tanks paired with frayed denim shorts and chunky black booties, the top Italian fashion insiders prove that festival fashion is more than merely a fad. The boho apparel of Chiara Ferragni, Erika Boldrin, and Chiara Biasi not only heated up the desert over the past two weekends, but continues to bring the heat to the streets as it makes for the perfect #ootd in the warmer seasons.

2. Spring Cleaning

It’s spring cleaning time, according to Instagram stars Veronica Ferraro, Mariacarla Boscono, and Chiara Biasi who are purifying their daily looks with a fresh play on monochromatic styling. The three Italian natives are taking on summer whites and serving major spring inspiration with body-con skirts, denim overalls, flowing tunics, and a whole lot of personality. Worn in California, Greece, and Italy, the stars deem the white-on-white color combination a must-have in a travelers wardrobe, as it is fitting for any time and clearly, any location.

3. Bomber Breeze

You might want to think twice about storing your bomber jackets away for the summer! For the days and nights that continue to carry that cool spring chill, lighter bomber jackets are key to staying warm and stylish. With fewer layers and more colorful shadesbomber jackets are the perfect wardrobe staple to ease the transition from winter to spring weather. Chiara Ferragni’s younger sister, Valentina, joins the style icon as well as Valentina Marzullo in opting for silk bomber jackets in brighter, more vivid shades to really make her spring style pop.

4. Giving The Cold Hot Shoulder

Cropped, blue-hued off-the-shoulder tops are clearly particularly “in” for the upcoming season as displayed on Instagram and can likely be found in any store from Topshop and Urban Outfitters to Forever21.
