Chicagoans Bring Festival Fashion To The Windy City Smokeout

By Staff in Arts & Entertainment on Jul 16, 2014 2:30PM

This past weekend, Chicagoans gathered at the Windy City Smokeout to enjoy southern-inspired BBQ and beats. With headliners such as Brett Eldredge and Eli Young Band, the three-day festival was filled with country-loving attendees who were dressed for a good time. Think that meant cowboy hats and weathered plaid? In some cases, yes, but Chicago’s budding fashion scene wasn’t about to leave festival fashion in the dust.

Chicagoist was on the ground, snapping the best looks of the weekend, which in the case of the smokeout was a pleasant mixture of down home roots combined with just the right amount of city pizzazz.
