Lollapalooza – my favorite summer fashion show – hits Grant Park this weekend. For the past two years, we’ve brought you the top summer trends to rock during Chicago’s biggest music fest, and this year is no different. Follow the guidelines below and there’s a good chance you’ll make the Best Dressed list of a fashion blog or two 😉
1. Bathing suits are fair game.
Swimsuit: Stampd LA; shorts: Levis; sunglasses: thrift store; purse: Steve Madden
Music’s Super Bowl was last night, and the stars were out in full force. Thanks to a zero-tolerance policy for lip-syncing, all performances were required to be live, helping us decide who really has it. We took to Twitter to review this years Grammy awards. Take a look below, and let us know your thoughts from last night!
Katy Perry says “What Memo?” Ellen Degeneres says “Damnnnnnnnnn!”
We gave you our top picks for girls’ fall fashion a few weeks ago, but we didn’t want to leave the guys hanging. Check out our list of what’s hot and a must-try for guys this fall. And they say Chicagoans don’t have style? False.
1. A Patchwork Shirt
Stand out from the flannel craze by opting for a patchwork shirt instead. The quilt-like pattern below is more interesting than the standard checkers on a flannel, and the attached hood on the button-down keeps the look even more unique.
Shirt: Cheap Monday; pants: Shipley & Halmos; shoes: Red Wings
A little while ago, Michael and I visited Sir & Madame, a boutique in Ukranian Village featuring fresh fashion and accessories reminiscent of Chicago style.
Owned by young couple Autumn and Brian, Sir & Madame can be described as a juxtaposition of sorts- the look of the store is old- antique dressers dot the walls and rich red drapes line the windows, yet the energy in the store is young. Sleek clothes in vibrant fabrics and edgy yet practical accessories are displayed throughout the room.
Fashion magazines are already buzzing about the must-have looks for fall, but I’m not willing to give up the fact that there is still over a month of summer left, and there is no better place to whip out the season’s hottest trends than for my favorite weekend of summertime Chi- Lollapalooza.
