It’s that time of year when people blow into the Windy City for Chicago’s most coveted summer music festival, Lollapalooza. Next weekend Grant Park will be transformed into live jukebox, filled with an eclectic array of bands, celebrities, hipsters, and music lovers alike.
Music festival fashion is unique—instead of turning to the runway for inspiration, you can be inspired by fellow concert go-ers. These festivals allow their crowds to freely express themselves through music, dance, and fashion. Music festivals are now the place to see-and-be-seen for the fashion-conscious (and if you make it into Style.com’s ‘Style Notes’ section, then you know you’re a true fashionista!). What bands you saw at Lollapalooza is almost as important as what you wore that weekend…
The easiest and most effective way to make a statement is with your hair flair. Festival favorites include fedoras, large straw hats, hippie headbands, and feather clip-ins.
