Indie Fashion From Pitchfork Music Festival 2011

Indie fashion was at the forefront when it came to style at the Pitchfork Music Festival and this weekend, girls with an eccentric sense of fashion awareness paraded around in the sweltering heat.

we were there documenting the most fashionable festival looks – from glorious hair bows and neon pops to rugged boots.

festival goers definitely pulled out all stops when it came to styling for this music festival.

Oh and sea foam… was the must have hair color!

Love all the festival style! The two girls’ outfits in the 4th picture are so simple yet cute! I need to get a pair of shorts like that before NY in a week!! Love Jemma’s whole outfit, and the FP bag is a plus! ;) The bag with the pins is so hippie and earthy looking, and the girl’s outfit on the left in the picture below that is just lovely! xoxo
