What Do You Wear to Music Festivals?

The summer months are stuffed with seriously good festivals-and while the music is what matters, it never hurts to look good while you're rocking out. For those of you who are heading to Lollapalooza in Chicago this weekend, here are some tips:

Sunscreen. Not negotiable! Neutrogena Ultimate Sport Sunblock Spray SPF 55 is light enough to carry in your bag, and the no-mess spray makes necessary reapplications easy.

Waterproof mascara.
Outdoor music festivals are inevitably really hot or really rainy. Either way, they're tailor-made to make your mascara run. Pick one like Lancôme's Définicils Waterproof that can last the day.

Hand wipes. The least glamorous part about a festival is the bathroom situation. Bring Purell Instant Hand Sanitizer Wipes. Seriously.

Rain boots. If you get pouring rain like everyone in New York did at All Points West, your best bet is to pull a Kate Moss and slip into some boots. Follow her lead with Hunter boots worn with a mini or shorts.
