Who wears short shorts? Pretty much everyone in Palm Springs.

While three nights of car camping don't exactly cater to the fashion ambitions of most, our pool party guests upped the bar for Coachella style with an array of simple but striking statements. Here, we land on four of our favorite Coachella trends:

The Vintage Concert Tee
Party host Gillian Zinser looked every bit the festival fashion pioneer she is in an Eagles European tour band tee, but she wasn't the only one who opted for the grunge staple. We spotted distressed concert memorabilia paired with two-toned denim shorts and gold bikini bottoms, too!

The Floral Crown
Headbands peppered with flowers (real and fake) in a kaleidoscope of colors were a breath of fresh air in the dry desert heat.

Highlighter Brights
Most guests limited their neon to bracelets and bikinis, but a few fully embraced brights with solid shirts and dresses, most complimented by sheer sleeves or netting.

Short Shorts
Hi-low skirts may have been the star of the show, but cheek-skimming shorts in caramel-colored leather, bubblegum pink neoprene and frayed denim were also paraded poolside.
