This weekend’s Pitchfork Festival in Chicago was super hot. Yes, of course we mean the sweltering, near-100 degrees and the heaping piles of buzz bands (both “hot” indeed), but we are mostly referring to the hordes of fashionable, adorable concert goers. The blazingly rad styles we spotted gave the high noon sun a run for its money, and we’ve got to give it up to the ladies who let us snap their picture. Not only were they on their feet all day (sensible shoes!) and sweating their skin off (loose clothing!) but each one brought their own special brand of rocker cool to the concert. (For more on the festival, check out our pals Refinery 29’s amazing Chicago blog.)

So not only did we get schooled on how to dress for steamy weather (Pitchfork staples included wrap sandals, bright prints anchored by solids, and leather satchels), but we spotted some styles we are going to be stealing all summer long.
