Shopping Like Janis Joplin: Summer Music Festival Chic at Sofia

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

With all the news about Coachella on our sassy West Coast cousin, RackedLA, your loyal Racked reporters decided to travel over to Sofia to check out some looks for Chicago’s upcoming music festivals and show 'em how we do it here in the third coast. Lollapalooza, Pitchfork, North Coast Fest, and Milwaukee's Summerfest are just a few months away, so it’s time to update your closet with looks ready to rock. Sofia, located in Chicago’s Gold Coast at 47 E Oak, carries a wide variety of clothing lines ideal for channeling that effortlessly chic vibe perfect for long days (and nights) under the open sky. We worked with two of Sofia’s coolest employees, Penny and Jackie, to create five looks ready to channel the Janis Joplin in us all.

A few of the new pieces they picked for us include House of Harlow shoes, a Sword leather vest and a pair of le Fee Verte perforated leather shorts
