We know you’re attending the Lollapalooza for the music (OutKast reunion? Yes, please!), but you also need to look good while you’re taking selfies in Grant Park. A boring old T-shirt and shorts don’t cut it as festival clothing anymore—these days there’s always a street-style blogger nearby. But you don’t want to look like you’re wearing the typical outdoor music concert uniform (those flower crowns have got to go). Walk the line between practical and fashionable by starting your outfit prep now.
