Now more than ever, Lollapalooza is a mélange of different fashion decisions to accompany the varied musical offerings crammed together throughout Chicago's Grant Park. When EDM butts up against metal, alt-country, and whatever the hell you'd call Die Antwoord, there's really no wrong way to dress. Still, too many attendees tend to stick to boring, functional attire to them through the weekend. None of those folks are rewarded here.

9. "America, fuck yeah."
