Chicago, IL

Probably one of the most infamous and beloved music festivals of all time, Lollapalooza takes place in Grant Park right in Downtown Chicago over the course of 4 days. This allows you to mix it up each day for several different fun and lively looks. Try playing with fun hats to block out the sun and chunky jewelry to elevate the look. Pair that with some comfortable shoes for walking all day and you have the ultimate ensemble for your legendary weekend.

WonderBus Music & Arts Festival

Columbus, OH

If you’re in the Ohio area, Wonderbus is the perfect festival for you, featuring the artists Duran Duran, Lorde, The Lumineers, COIN, Young the Giant, Cautious Clay, Beach Bunny, and so many more. This scene is much more laidback and fun-loving, so you want your outfit to reflect that. Find a fun, colorful dress or an adorable matching set for the perfect look.

New York street style is iconic and endeared, so if you’re attending Gov Ball you definitely must step up your style. Have fun mixing prints and playing with chic, sophisticated silhouettes to make a statement in the streets of the city that never sleeps.

For all of the southerners out there or just lovers of country music, the South by Southwest festival is right up your alley. For this event, pair more edgy components with country aspects to portray a chic and charming look. Grab a chunky statement necklace and put on those vintage cowboy boots for a flawless attire.

Rolling Loud

Miami, FL

The Miami summer sun definitely calls for a look like this. If you plan on going to Rolling Loud, pick out a cute bikini and pair it with some trendy denim shorts or a fun skirt. To accessorize, add a fanny pack and a modish trucker hat for a fashionable, but also practical and comfortable outfit.
