Sarah Hyland is packing for Coachella this weekend, and we've got all the details on what she's bringing! 

E! News caught up with the Modern Family star at Marie Claire's Fresh Faces party at the Soho House in West Hollywood, and Sarah was quick to dish on her Coachella style. 

For one, she swears by her denim cutoff shorts from American Eagle Outfitters. "They're really comfortable and they have that frayed look, like when the jeans fall apart—that sort of thing," said Sarah.

Sarah's look for the Marie Claire party was a bit dressier than cutoffs, however. She chose a pretty Milly skirt accessorized with a Jenny Packham clutch, and celebrity manicurist Christina Aviles gave Sarah an awesome mani using Red Carpet Manicure's LED gel polish collection. We have a feeling her nail art will be perfect for Coachella.

She also revealed that she recently got a Henna tattoo on her hands, but it faded right away. "I tried to get Henna, but that didn't go very well," she said with a laugh. So maybe the whole Henna thing didn't go as planned, but one hippie trend she will definitely be sporting this Coachella is flower crowns. "I think flower headbands are always fun," she said. "I really love those!" 

We're guessing you can find her sporting a flower crown in a group of her famous fellow Coachella goers, Vanessa Hudgens and Lea Michele


And this year actually marks Sarah's return to Coachella after a five-year hiatus. She explained, "I've gone once for the first time in 2009, and I haven't been able to go back since. I honestly think it's changed so much, so I don't even know what to expect."

As for where Sarah likes to go shopping to stock up on Coachella essentials for her big return to the music festival, you might be surprised that they're all fairly affordable. "I did just splurge on something fashionable. I went to Urban Outfitters, American Apparel and Brandy Melville, which is splurging for me." 

So what are some spring beauty essentialls she will be packing in her Coachella bag? "I use Chanel foundation and I use Dior mascara and Dior eyeshadow. I use a lot of Dior, really. I love it." 

Of course we had to ask Sarah if she could give us one Coachella survival tip, what would it be. And we think her answer is pretty savvy. "Lots of water!"
