Festival fashion: What to wear to Lollapalooza


The end of summer is quickly approaching. There’s only one month left, ladies! By now you have been able to soak up some rays by the pool, enjoy a good bonfire and BBQ, and maybe even sit outside at night to stare at the stars. 

You also might have been able to see your favorite artist play at a concert or two. If not, don’t fret! There is one more summer festival happening soon: Lollapalooza!

From August 3-6, Chicago’s very own Grant Park will house some of the best music artists to grace our ears. Get ready for 8 stages and over 170 talented musicians from all over the world. Here’s the full Lollapalooza lineup:

Oh, and if you need more convincing that you need to attend, Lolla has an art market and traditional Chicago food, drinks, and desserts from some of the best restaurants in town (count me in!). 

Now, if you’re going to enjoy this fab festival, you gotta have something to wear! Below I have curated some cute Lallapalooza outfit ideas based on your favorite Lollapalooza artists. 

Lollapalooza Outfit for the Alternative Chicks

For the lovers of Muse, Cage the Elephant, The Killers, The xx, Alt-J, The Head and the Heart, Arcade Fire, etc.

Lollapalooza Outfit: Indie Girl outfit with oversized white tee shirt, black skinny jeans, black platform sandals, black backpack, black fedora, layered gold rings, choker
Products: Tee – Forever 21 | Jeans – Hollister | Rings – Brand Outlet | Fedora – Forever 21 | Sandals – ASOS | Backpack – Walmart | Choker – Urban Outfitters | Sunglasses – Urban Outfitters

Alright ladies, for the lovers of alternative/indie/rock hits, here’s the look for you: pair this breezy white tee with some black distressed jeans for a haphazard, yet chic, outfit. Strap into some black platform sandals to elevate your look (and feet!).

To accessorize, throw on a sleek velvet choker and round sunnies to frame your face. Don’t forget the bling — I love these black and gold rings to accentuate your nails. 

Finally, gather your things in this black leather backpack, straighten your locks, add a black suede fedora, and you’re all set!

Lollapalooza Outfit for the Hip-Hop/Rap Babes

Cue Wiz Khalifa, Run the Jewels, Chance the Rapper, Big Sean, 21 Savage, Rae Sremmurd, etc.

Lollapalooza hip-hop/rap outfit: Striped crop top, camo print joggers, black and white Adidas Superstars, adidas hat, hoop earrings, cropped black hoodie
Products: Crop Top – Amazon | Sweatshirt – Urban Outfitters | Joggers – Forever 21 | Cap – Topshop | Sneakers – Urban Outfitters | Hoops – Macy’s | Elastics – Target

Get ready to jam in these super fun, comfy, camo-print joggers. To get heads turning, offset the camo with a different print, like this striped crop top.

Continue the comfy chic vibe with a cropped black hoodie, which you can tie around your waist if it gets too hot. Choose some classic Adidas sneakers and a matching Adidas cap to look effortlessly cool.  

Pull your hair into a high, sleek pony with some black elastics (that don’t cause creases!). Finally, add a pair of gold hoop earrings and you are ready to go! 

Lollapalooza Outfit for the Dancers/EDM Goddesses

Enjoy DJ Snake, Justice, Zeds Dead, Porter Robinson, KAYATRANADA, Baauer, Gramatik, DVBBS, Nathan Scott, and more.

Lollapalooza Outfit 3 - Dance/EDM: Black velvet crop top, ripped jeans over fishnet tights, high heel ankle boots, sheer holographic tee in black, spike choker necklace
Products: Mesh Tee – Urban Outfitters | Bralette – Boohoo | Jeans – Forever 21 | Tights – ASOS | Earrings – Revolve | Booties – Nordstrom Rack | Choker – Lulu’s

To all my dancers out there – I’ve got a look for you! Start off with this super chic velvet bralette and pair it with some distressed boyfriend jeans. Slip on some fishnet tights to show through the holes in your jeans! 

On top, add this beautiful iridescent crop top that shimmers in the light — you’re a star, so show it!  

Strut your stuff in a pair of leather booties with an adorable peep toe to show off your glittery stockings. Keep your hair au naturel, whether straight, curly, wavy, or anything in between! Embrace you, girl.

To accessorize and finish off this look, grab some super sparkly star tassel earrings and a chunky spike necklace. Statement jewelry is key! Have fun and dance the night away, girlie.
