With summer quickly approaching (well the months of summer at least, clearly not the weather) it’s about that time to kick off summer music festivals. With Coachella the past two weekends, Country music festival stage coach next week and the fast approaching warped tour and Lollapalooza I was inspired by the fashion that are typically related to each different festival. With Coachella it’s all about that gypsy life, Lolla you think bright colors that scream as loud as you are during your favorite headliner, Stage Coach is all about love for America, and Warped Tour is looking like a complete bad ass. I pulled together my favorite looks that reminded me of each of the fun festivals to get us even more excited for the upcoming months!
When I think Coachella I think Free People. Maxi Skirts, crochet tops, flower crowns, the whole nine yards. It also happens to be a large influence on my Spring fashion. I love the soft colors, flowy pieces, and accessories to top it off.
Although I am not a country fan, I have a dear friend who is going to the Stagecoach festival and I’ve had so much fun helping her pick out what to wear. It’s all about pride for your country, so break out the cowboy hats and boots for this festival and rock your best red, white, and blue!
For Lollapalooza, due to its timing in the midst of summer, it’s only right that color is incorporated in some form, my favorite is stacks of colorful bracelets. The diversity of Chicago and the attendants of Lolla makes the Street Style so much more fun to look out for. You get a mix of cut offs with maxis, wedges with flat sandals to high top sneakers mixed with crazy accessories. And this year with headliners like Mumford and Sons and Lana Del Ray who wouldn’t want to be in attendance?
If there is one thing I love about the Vans Warped Tour it’s seeing all the cool graphic tees the concertgoers typically wear. The outfits are typically a mix of graphic tees cut off denims high tops and thrown back hair with bandanas in attempt to stay cool. The simple pieces all thrown together scream I’m ready to party.
