Street Style: Pitchfork Music Fest 2013

BY: Amanda Nyren | Jul 22, 2013

Despite oppressive heat and rain that synced up with the headliners, the talent at this weekend’s Pitchfork Music Fest performed in all manner of fashionable attire. Dainty Joanna Newsom donned what appeared to be the calf-grazing chili-pepper skirt from Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection, Solange incited a dance party in a psychedelic-print pantsuit, and Bjork took the stage in a lamé choir robe, sporting a headpiece that resembled a dandelion seed head built of sewing needles.

Those closer to the ground, however, had to dress for the weather (and the combined body heat of an estimated 48,000 attendees). In an array of cutoff shorts, crop tops, and ‘90s muscle shirts, they flooded Union Park with floral patterns and denim. Some even managed to look cool while the air around them sweltered.
