Style Stealer: Lalapalooza 2017

Festival style is a big thing. When you’re spending four days in mosh pits and mud – you want to look your best. This past weekend I spent one day at Lalapalooza to see my favorite band and it was absolutely insane.

I’ve been to other music festivals, but this one was special. Never before had I see so much body glitter, oversized jerseys as dresses, and bralettes as shirts. Now I’m not bashing this look, if that’s what you feel comfortable in, go for it! I’m writing this post to show people who want to go off the beaten road and try a new look for the next festival they go to.

The Look

I want to start by saying Chicago was cold. Between the temperature being only 60 degrees and the wind, it was definitely a chilly day.  Some people were still dressed like it was 90 degrees outside and had to wear goose bumps as their newest accessory.

I’m wearing a tube top from Madewell which is unfortunately no longer available. The good news is: tube tops are everywhere so I’m sure everyone can find something that fits their style and their budget.

I’m wearing a vintage oversized jacket since it was so cold. I can’t link the exact one since I found it in a thrift store, but I’ve always thought this Levi’s ex-boyfriend trucker jacket would substitute well.

I didn’t wear any body glitter, but I did wear this makeup look if you want to check it out.

I’m wearing a pair of One Teaspoon jeans that are no longer available, but these ones are pretty similar. They don’t have rips in them and the hem is a little different, but all in all pretty similar. You could also just wear any jeans and you’d look cool.

I’m wearing my favorite Vejas shoes, that I talked about in this post. I honestly think these are the comfiest shoes I’ve ever put on. I would recommend them to anyone. Go ahead and find a pair you like here. I also love this company because they are super ethical, which is sometimes a hard quality to find these days.

I hope you all enjoyed today’s post, I know it was shorter than usual, but I was only at Lollapalooza for one day otherwise I would show more outfits. Next week I’m going to be talking about fashion essentials for college… and it might even be coming with a youtube video! I hope you’ll stay tuned for all the exciting content that is coming up!

Until then,

Kate
