Photos: There Were So Many Stylish Men At Wicker Park Fest

This past weekend was Wicker Park Fest—the best neighborhood street fest, in our opinion. Though both days of the festival were plagued by epic, CTA-consuming rainstorms, there was still plenty of live music and, equally important, fest fashion. (Headliners the Mountain Goats, though, were unfortunately rained out on Saturday.)

Everyone brought their A-game style-wise, as you can see above, but we were especially awed by how well the men dressed. Men often look nice, obviously, but they don't always look... creative? This fest was the exception that proved the rule, with men rocking brights, patterns, and what we think was platinum blonde.

Check out photographer Annie Lesser's photos of the festivities, and the rainstorms that disrupted them, above. Fun fact: Pokemon Go was everywhere this weekend, including in the streets of Wicker Park, and just as they did last year, people this year brought along some truly adorable dogs.
