Considering we got over six inches of snow yesterday, music festivals are probably not the first thing on your mind. But with the trendiest festival of them all just around the corner and the fact that Lollapalooza tickets go on sale TODAY, it’s not that crazy to talk about fashion’s newest season.
When it comes to trends, they’re usually something obvious like a color, a silhouette, a certain accessory, even a time period…but this specific one has a broader spectrum that ranges everywhere from 60s rock ‘n’ roll to the current rave culture. Let’s just say your music festival style will be set next spring.
This weekend, I will be venturing to Indio, California for the only reason I know to visit this part of Cali — Coachella. For my 25 years on Earth, I’ve been a Coachella virgin and as of this Friday that will all change. I’ll officially become a [well-traveled festival] woman (because my outdoor music experiences in the past have only occurred in the Chicago area) but one who will not be partaking in any of the following…
With one of the largest music festivals in the world happening this weekend in Chicago, there’s a lot of good, bad, and down right crazy about to go on at Lollapalooza. I’m sure you’ve gotten your fair share of “what to wear to a music festival” posts, last year I shared my Lollapalooza essentials (which go for any music festival, really) and this year I’m doing something a little different.
When it comes to certain trends, you definitely need to have some guts to try them out (and even more to pull them off). I consider things like a full-on pajama-like outfit, a bright monochromatic suit, and a completely sheer top to be in this category. If you’re looking for an easy trend, go black and white. If you’re looking for something a little more…ballsy…then just wear a bra. Seriously.
