This year’s Lollapalooza bounced back with Big Sean and 170+ artists featured at the Chicago Grant Park’s summer concert 2017. With artists like The Killers, Blink-182, Wiz Khalifa and so many more, we were sure to see some festival – worthy fashion. This year was all about the experience of summer music bands, with everything from skating rinks, to after parties, to cash thrown into the crowd by a fan, delicious food, and lots of terrible singing, we couldn’t help but feel this may have been the best experience of summer life.
But with #MusicisLife goals, what else did we see at Chicago’s summer festival? The erratic weather fashion frenzy! The four-day concert experience rained out with autumn cold climates and unpredictable lightning and thunder, but later recovered to a warm sunny day! “This is the most ‘Melodrama’ s–t ever,” Lorde tweeted, after being told to leave the stage, and promising to deliver a better performance (while it rained out). How did fashion keep up? We saw everything from gothic-punk fishnets and glitter beards, to aborigine Spice Girls influences, combat boots and layered, studded jackets for the crazy weather! But this year’s Lollapalooza was about enjoying the summer tracks, blowing bubbles, and closing 2017’s summer vibes with happiness. We’ve even seen posters saying Only music can save us! So true.
All we did was dance with tribal tattoos and wear the hottest sunglasses for 2017. And did we mention random pineapples? So trippy! Chicago is known for its underground music scene, it’s all about the indie bands, birth of new age trap, and vintage-artsy influences all about the blues’ city! Alongside musical cultures and fashion, let your light shine before others, so that they see your good works, because fashion can’t go wrong in Chicago (but be sure you don’t wear anything gone with the wind). Check out what you missed here!
