Chicago summers happen to be one of the best times of the year here in the Windy City. Lollapalooza is one of the reasons why. Since our weather all year is never quite predictable, most people look forward to summer by, usually, counting on those July rays. Festival season in the scorching sun, what could get better than that? If you’re reuniting with your friends from school, or preparing to set up shop front row for your favorite performing band, festivals are one of everyone’s favorite summertime activities to embrace their festival fashion. So ladies, break out your best pair of high-waist shorts and your favorite crop tops, because three days of festivities are quickly approaching!
Take note from this Fashionista who was spotted looking festival ready, but still classy and feminine. She was wearing a black crop top from Tobi that was lace and had an open back. A great way to stay cool during long festival days is by wearing an open back halter like this one from NASTY GAL. You can think of this as an added bonus to show off your tan you’ve been working towards all summer long! She completed her outfit with appropriate length high-waist shorts and Jack Rogers sandals. These types of sandals are awesome for standing all day at festivals, since they are comfortable and won’t fall off your feet.
Keeping the accessories simple is smart for this occasion because you don’t want to lose your nice jewelry dancing the day away. This Fashionista wore her monogram necklace and some bangles. Other festival favorites are boho headbands and fun arm candy like friendship bracelets galore! Jewelry that you know will stay on your body and won’t mind getting dirty is the way to go. A cross-body bag or a stylish fanny pack is ideal, just to be sure you leave with everything you came with. From flower crowns to crochet tops, festival season is in its prime, so don’t be afraid to embrace something you otherwise wouldn’t.
One Simple Change: Instead of your trendy high-waist shorts, pair this feminine crop top with a pleated maxi for a fabulous night out with friends.
