Best and worst Coachella style through the years

WORST: Paris Hilton's all blue ensemble from 2011 was not very flattering. It featured a strange mix of shades and textures.

BEST: Actresses Lily Collins and Kate Bosworth both looked super chic yet not overdone at a soiree in 2012. Both gals rocked a tribal and animal print style, perfect for the summer fest.

WORST: We know Lana Del Rey is always going for a retro vibe, but this super bright muumuu look she donned for her 2014 performance looked like it had been cut from 1960s bedding.

BEST: In 2011, Kelly Osbourne donned a vintage-style, polka dot dress, which was extremely flattering. She totally stood out from the usual Coachella crowd. (Photo by Christopher Polk/Getty Images)

WORST: Remember Pharell's famous oversized hat? During his Coachella performance in 2014, the "Happy" singer seemed happy with his style, but we certainly weren't. The look was disastrous.

WORST: We're not exactly sure what kind of look Justin Bieber was going for while performing at Coachella in 2014.

BEST: Emma Roberts' all white outfit perfectly mixed textures at a 2014 party. Plus, isn't the lace skirt a nice spring addition?

WORST: Kylie Jenner's Coachella look in 2014 was an overload on the senses.

BEST: Vanessa Hudgens perfectly embodied the boho chic Coachella trend in 2012, with bare feet, a flower crown and a crop top. (Photo by Christopher Polk/Getty Images for Coachella)

WORST: Jordan Catalano meets Jesus. That's about how we felt about Jared Leto's 2014 festival garb.

BEST: Katy Perry's gorgeous Dolce & Gabbana two-piece was definitely a head turner at the 2013 LACOSTE L!VE pool party. How cool are the faces on her skirt?

BEST: Actress Diane Kruger's ensemble was relaxed and fun, but she still looked put together at a 2013 Coachella party. Do you like the pirate boots?

WORST: Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs looked almost clown-like in a crazy, patterned suit with wild matching makeup during her 2013 performance at the festival. (Photo by Helen Boast/Redferns via Getty Images)

BEST: Solange's geometric print set was perfectly structured, yet looked comfortable and chic in 2014. Luckily, it's still on trend for 2015.

BEST: "Glee" star Lea Michele and Lauren Conrad mastered festival style with stripes and lightweight fabrics in 2012. (Photo by Chris Weeks/WireImage)

WORST:  Kendall Jenner's all black lace outfit for a 2014 festival party looked appropriate for Halloween, but not a music festival.

BEST: Emma Watson's Coachella style in 2012 was definitely wild! The animal print look still worked despite the unlikely pairing of black and brown. (Photo by Donato Sardella/WireImage)

Coachella marks the beginning of music festival season, which means an influx of fringe, cut-offs, crop tops and over-accessorizing -- not to mention the inevitable presence of offensive Native American headwear.

Arguably the motherload of festival fashion, Coachella draws tons of hit-or-miss attempts ranging from totally chic to completely cheesy.

But throughout the years, we've learned that less is more when it comes to festival dressing.

Take Solange as an example. Even though the pop star chose a loud print and funky accessories last year, the simple silhouette kept her looking chic and put together.

Meanwhile, Paris Hilton's 2011 printed maxi dress, fringed vest, aviator sunnies -- and even an embellished head piece -- had her looking more tacky than fashion-forward.
