What to wear to spring's hottest (literally and figuratively) music festival?

Coachella's just a couple of days away, and with a lineup that includes Of Monsters and Men, Tegan and Sara and Vampire Weekend among dozens of other acts each day, things are heating up in the desert. So, what to wear to spring's hottest music festival?

Why not rock jean shorts with your own signature style? All you'll need: a pair of jeans, a scarf you don't care about cutting up, a pair of scissors, bleach, a paint brush, fabric glue and a piece of chalk.

Follow the easy instructions in the video above. (Be careful with the bleach. Put something down to protect your table. Use gloves to avoid getting bleach on your skin if you're not the most meticulous artiste.)

Once your masterpiece shorts are complete, let them sit out and dry for a couple of hours. Then take your scissors and rub them along the raw edges of the jean shorts. This will distress the denim quicker to give it a cool cut-off look. Wait a day and then throw them in the wash to get rid of the bleach scent. Finally, toss them in the dryer on low, which will help distress the raw edges more.

That's it! You're ready to rock Coachella, and you'll have a cool, custom-designed pair of jean shorts for all of summer's music festivals as well.
