What to Wear: Palm Springs in February & March

Visiting Palm Springs in February or March and wondering what to wear? Spoiler alert: The answer is this! And these! While I’m Team Caftan year-round, February and March are primo caftan season. Here’s why, plus how to get the look…

What’s the Weather Like in Palm Springs in February and March?


In February, it’s not too hot, not too cold. The daytime temps are just right. Think mid-70s to low 80s and abundant sunshine, so a fabulous sun hat and sunnies are a must too!


On average it rains two days a month in February and one day in March, so while highly unlikely, you might want to bring a small umbrella. At night it does cool down though, with averages from 48-52 degrees Fahrenheit. So bring a coat. I love a good faux fur coat and find it very chic to toss over one’s caftan-clad shoulders.

Why Is a Caftan Perfect for Palm Springs?

A caftan is ideal for traipsing around town — or the by pool — because not only does it scream old Palm Springs glamour, caftans are also SO comfortable too. And the temps in February and March are cool enough out that you won’t be sweating, but warm enough that you’ll feel like you’ve found heaven on earth.

‘Tis the most wonderful time of the year — in Palm Springs anyway!


Modernism Week Outfit Idea

If you’re attending Modernism Week, this is an ideal outfit for all of the daytime events, like house tours, etc. For nighttime soirees, you might want to choose caftans with fabrics that are more silky and flowy. Find lots of options here in my Ultimate Caftan Guide!



Caftan: Frances Valentine c/o (use code KLFV17 for 17% off!; if between sizes, size down — I”m wearing an XS but available up to 3X)
Hat: Lorna Murray (this is the BEST price I’ve found on this style; wearing Medium 56-58cm)
Shoes: Patricia Green (these are the MOST comfortable pair of heels ever; I’m getting the pink next; size 1/2 size up)
Bag: J.McLaughlin c/o (wicker + rattan bags forever)
Sunnies: J.McLaughlin (love this shade, pun intended)
