Lollapalooza might not lure the crazy costumes of a Spring Awakening or North Coast Music Festival, nor does it present quite the wild hipster safari of Pitchfork. But that's okay, that means you see more summer looks in Grant Park you might want to rock in your day-to-day life. We wandered the grounds of Grant Park to find festival chic.
