Now that we've gotten a glimpse of what the celebrities wore during the first weekend of Coachella, how about everyone else? Aside from the usual jean-shorts-and-crop-top combo, we noticed a running trend of sheer black dresses worn on top of one-pieces or bikinis over the past three days. Perhaps this is a more modest approach to the popular "naked trend" among the star-studded set, or an alternative to going shirtless, practiced by the Victoria's Secret Angels attending Coachella. And while we do think this is an ambitious look for a weekend in the desert (read: hot!), going for something breathable and sheer is a wise sartorial choice. Plus, if you're considering going to Weekend 2, the color black will be a cool contrast to highlighter hair, which has been the music festival's standout beauty trend so far.
