WHAT TO WEAR: Concert

Well folks, the inevitable is finally here. Syllabus week is upon us and summer is coming to a close. With post Lollapalooza depression at its prime, it’s hard not to reminisce about the hot festival days. Lucky for us Illini students, there are still plenty of Chicago concerts and festivals that are yet to happen. So put your books back on the shelf for a weekend and take advantage of these final summer days!

Concerts are typically the place where anyone can get away with wearing just about anything. I’m in full support of all the crazy outfits, but when I go to concerts, I like to dress as relaxed as possible. This Fashionista understands that festivals and shows are always more fun when you’re comfortable.

It’s no secret that denim shorts are a concert must-have. This Fashionista’s shorts are a twist on the classics with the lace detailing. Her relaxed tank top is loose enough to dance in and the Converse sneakers are the epitome of all things summer. Finally, her layered necklaces give the outfit an edgier flair and pull together the whole ensemble.

At the end of each summer, I like to go out with a bang. The perfect way to do this is to get together with friends and rock out to your favorite artists together. There is no better feeling than screaming lyrics and jumping around with your favorite people and it’s even more enjoyable in a perfectly comfy outfit. Put on your jewelry and Converse and end your summer on a high note!

One Simple Change: Need to tone down your casual rocker-chic look for class? Throw on a light cardigan and stylish backpack and you’re ready to go. If it’s a bit chillier, swap out the denim shorts for denim jeans!
