When the mercury's rising in in LA, the last place people think of heading to is Joshua Tree. But as we've seen with this year's two back-to-back Coachella weekends, triple-digit temps are no biggie when the scene is cool.

The huge music fest might've put the High Desert on the map for some, but there are plenty more reasons (other than the gorgeous views and relaxing hot springs) to head east for your next weekend getaway. From high-end designer frocks to bohemian-chic vintage, we've found six great shopping spots in JT and neighboring Yucca Valley to add some style to your next desert adventure.

Not quite ready to blast Gram Parsons and hit the open road just yet? Get inspired locally and head to Santa Monica Museum of Art's Exploring Joshua Tree exhibit, where you can catch desert-influenced line dosa's summer collection of folky clothing and home goods on display.
