Music festivals are undoubtedly one of the most anticipated highlights of the summer season. We love everything from dancing under the stars to stuffing our faces with gourmet food-truck fare. Okay, so maybe we don’t love waiting in long lines for lobster rolls and lukewarm rosé, but it’s a small price to pay for all of the fun—and style watching—that’s in store.
Of our favorite fashion scenes to scope out is the one at Lollapalooza. Held annually in Chicago’s Grant Park, the festival inspires slightly edgier looks than the more bohemian flair of its desert-based counterparts. And this year did not disappoint: Between singing along to our favorite Lorde songs to swooning over Foster the People’s relaxed set, we stopped by the Bed Head party at the Hard Rock Hotel to get our hair concert-ready. After all, festival dressing is truly a head-to-toe experience.
