Chicago may not be thought of as a fashion capital compared to greats like Paris and New York, but for three days each summer we morph into an undeniable festival fashion mecca during Lollapalooza. The three-day music festival is one of the biggest in the U.S. With headliners like Florence + the Machine, Tyler the Creator, Kid Cudi, A$AP Rocky, The Weeknd, and even Paul McCartney, it goes without saying that the diversity of the music is reflected in the style of the crowd. What trends didn’t surprise me? Crop tops, denim cut off shorts, and fedoras. What was surprising? Fanny packs are back. Yes. Fanny packs.
Here I’ve gathered my favorite looks and asked folks about their style inspiration and which performers they were excited to see most of all.
