FYF Fest this year felt like Coachella in L.A. -- the stages and everything else have gotten huge -- although the vibe was even more music-centric and laid back. Though in the heart of L.A., it wasn't about being "seen" as much as seeing one's favorite bands, even in the VIP areas.

The no-frills feel was reflected in the fashion choices too. Yeah, there was a lot of "eastsider" facial hair, '80s touches like neon and acid wash, and those flower head garlands. Mostly though, people were dressed for comfort and stomping about. We were proud about the relative lack of self-conscious irony out there. Here are the top 10 fashion moments of the festival.

The fans at Coachella tend to wear things no humans should. (Except for the bros, of course.) But the artists on stage can commit some cringe-worthy fashion faux pas as well. (Here's hoping they take some of those hard earned Coachella dollars from this weekend and hire a better stylist for weekend two.) Here are the five worst offenders so far.

As we mentioned earlier, the bros are freaking bringing it this year! Sure, we all know about the women who wear just about nothing, but the guys are getting exceedingly creative, particularly when it comes to their funny t-shirts. So it's time to give the men some props for combining humor with style. Here are Brochella's best t-shirts from weekend one.

Now more than ever, Lollapalooza is a mélange of different fashion decisions to accompany the varied musical offerings crammed together throughout Chicago's Grant Park. When EDM butts up against metal, alt-country, and whatever the hell you'd call Die Antwoord, there's really no wrong way to dress. Still, too many attendees tend to stick to boring, functional attire to them through the weekend. None of those folks are rewarded here.

Here are ten examples of really letting your clothing do the talking, and we did our best to interpret.

*Expected Fashion Trends at Coachella

SpiritHoods are back! At Coachella this year these fuzzy animal-themed head gears resembling furs (but not!) have returned with a vengeance; one's instinct remains, as always, to mock them, but this year, with heavy winds and thick drops of cold rain coming down, they actually serve a function. But staying warm was just one of many reasons Coachella attendees gave for wearing their SpiritHoods. Behold.

We hear it might be rainy or cold this year at Coachella. (If that happens, here's some fashion advice for ya). But, then again, the current forecast says only Friday will be a wash, so we highly recommend packing these winning fashion combinations in your suitcase along with your ponchos.

5. Bodycon dresses and cutouts (above): If you're rockin' both, consider yourself hip (or just a bargain-hunter at Urban Outfitters). In either event, if you're skinny enough to pull off this look, you must be a model vegan.

When it comes to Coachella, what's better: 103-degree temperatures or a drizzly, windy, muddy polo field?

The latter is what many festival-goers might be facing this Friday: The forecast is a high of 69-degrees with a 50 percent chance of rain.

As our sister blog The Informer reported yesterday, while any rain likely wouldn't amount to much, it would still be an anomaly; Coachella has never once been rained on since it began in 1999.

So, since bikini tops and barely-there shorts were previously the norm,  what's a gal to do?

For help we consulted Jennifer Daking, Silverlake-based co-founder and designer of clothing label All-Mighty, and the members of the Silver Lake Chorus. Here are their top five suggestions for looking cute.
