We’re just a few days away from the highly anticipated kick off to Lollapalooza at Chicago’s Grant Park. This year will be extra special. Not only is the music festival celebrating its 25th anniversary, for the first time ever the event will be four days long running from July 28-31. To help get you pumped to see the likes of Radiohead, Lana Del Rey, and Red Hot Chili Peppers live on stage, we’re helping you put together your Lolla-worthy outfit. From a flirty dress to sleek sneakers, here’s eight pieces oozing with cool vibes that are perfect for the fest.

For the Ladies…

Flirty Dress

With the sizzling summer heat, wearing something light and breezy is key and this grey star-studded mini dress ($180) perfectly fits the bill.

Edgy Sunglasses

Sunglasses are another music festival must. Standout from the sea of festival-goers with a unique pair of sunnies like these black and green stunners ($50). The round and subtle cateye shape is totally on trend right now.

Mini Backpack

When you’re having the most fun ever in the Windy City, the last thing you need is your purse weighing you down. Opt for a mini inexpensive backpack ($22.90) instead that is roomy enough to hold your water bottle too because staying hydrated is crucial!

Ruffle Shorts

If you’re more of a shorts kind of girl, go for these fun, floral-printed shorts ($28) featuring a super cute ruffle trim.


For the Guys…

Boss Sneakers

Black shoes like this sleek pair by Saint Laurent ($495) are definitely the way to go in terms of footwear. They’ll look really good with anything and you won’t have to worry about them getting dirty while you’re out dancing on the festival field. Opt for a less expensive all black pair of Vans to get the look without the price tag.

Cool Sunglasses

Like we said, sunnies are essential. And attending a music festival provides the perfect excuse to pick up a new pair. We suggest these minimalistic Warby Parker sunglasses ($95) for Lollapalooza. The shape is classic but the crystal see-through frames makes them so right now.

Basic Denim Shorts

You can never go wrong with a pair of denim shorts. They are a summertime staple. A simple dark wash pair like these ($24.90) will make choosing your fest outfit a breeze.

Classic Tank Top

Beat the summer heat in a perennially classic striped tank top ($12.90). Music festivals are all about letting loose, having fun, and not overthinking it and the same goes for your outfit. Simple and classic is always cool.
