3 Extra-Easy Outfits For Summer Street Fairs

UPDATE: With the Randolph Street Market and Green Music fest this weekend, we figured a refresher course was in order. This story originally ran on June 4, 2012.
With summer officially in full swing, we're ready to start planning for some serious sunshine-filled fun. Sure, you could hit the road to find a beach, a theme park, or a cute B&B, but some of the best times to be had right are here at home—at Chicago's summer street fairs. With an abundance of these outdoor hang-fests, however, comes the inevitable stress of what to wear to not only look amazing, but also survive the sweltering heat.
Anyone completely unwilling to sacrifice style for comfort (atta girl), should keep reading, because we're about to prove that you never have to. We styled three incredibly easy-to-pull-off outfits perfect for all of the hot-weather pavement parties. We told you this was a total breeze.
