Last year it was the dainty white fedoras with black bands and 80s Ray Ban knock-offs. In 2004 it was peacock feather earrings, and then there was that other year everyone had those lace-up moccasin boots. This year's fads are sure to blaze out fast too, check em out while they're hot.

ANIMAL HOODS

What's your spirit animal? Many Coachella revelers are donning furry hoods that emulate the physical manifestation of their inner cub. They're cute, they're fun and they'll be so over next year.

SELF PROMOTION

Self promotion is so Banksy. Take KoshaDillz for instance: This Jew boy rapper/MC is trolling the field with his star of David bling and t-shirt with "OY-VEY" written all over it - while passing on his 411. Keep up the energy and Mazel Tov, man.

BATHING SUITS

Ladies, we know you're hot (meaning the weather is 100 degrees and your body temperature is uncomfortable). We're hot too. But - not to be superficial or anything - unless you've been doing pilates for the last six months, you might want to also consider a nice sarong or wrap. On the other hand - if you've got it, flaunt it.

SKINNY SUSPENDERS

For that oh-so-80s look, snap on a pair of these suckers. We've seen them in black, hot pink and rainbow on both dudes and ladies. Highly gratuitous, these measly elastic strips probably couldn't hold up a pair of panties on their own. Hmmmm suspenders and panties, I think I smell next years' fashion already.

FEATHERS

This one's a hold over from last year, but it's gotten bigger - literally. Fans are rocking full headdresses that would make Sitting Bull jealous. Headdresses are ranging from 3rd-grade arts & crafts quality to I-just-robbed-this-from-the-Natural-History-Museum-on-the-way-out-to-Indio quality.

SURGICAL MASKS

Okay, I can see how it would be a good idea with all the dust and smoke and everything. But this new "style" is kind of freaking everybody out.
