Everyone at Coachella is wearing chainmail and we love it

Whats the best outfit to wear in the blistering sun of the Californian desert?

Metal of course. Boiling hot metal directly against your naked flesh.

But when it comes to the world of Coachella influencers – comfort isnt exactly high on their list of priorities. Right at the top of that list – looking amazing of course.

And chainmail seems to be one of the most popular looks this year.

You know chainmail – tiny pieces of metal linked together to form a hard-wearing kind of mesh, normally worn by medieval knights under their suits of armour.

But fashionistas have given chainmail a sexy makeover. And now its less Game of Thrones and more skimpy bralettes and barely-there skirts.

These looks might be slightly on the impractical side – the chance of nipple slippage is high – but we have to admit, its a good look.

Adding a splash of metallic hardware to your festival outfit instantly toughens it up and adds some shimmer without having to resort to tired old sequins.

And it is definitely a more wearable Coachella look than butless chaps.

This cute chainmail skirt livens up the drapey, black maxi underneath. We love the edition of the pendant jewels hanging from the metal, which gives the outfit a softer, ethereal feel.

The very definition of barely-there, the halter chainmail top is a very popular choice. We like the big, teardrop discs that make up this look and the gold chain fringing.

Matching your outfit exactly to your facial jewels is surely an influencers dream – and this golden look is glowing like the sun.

The golden squares of the chainmail top are gorgeous, but skimpy – and this woman has wisely decided to wear a nude bikini underneath for that added touch of security.

Team your chainmail with rainbow lycra – because when else are you going to get to make such a bold statement with your outfit?

We love the dangly chains hanging from this top and can imagine that the swishing motion will be quite dramatic when the dancing starts.

Simplicity is key here, we love the combination of the metallic silver with the nude of the suede skirt. Add a wide-brimmed hat and a demure smile and youll be Instagram-ready.

If a skirt or a top isnt enough for you, opt for an entire chainmail dress. You can drape it over hot pants or cycling shorts.
