ACL Fest 2014

Short Shorts Named No. 1 Fashion Trend at ACL Fest 2014

Plus, Jack Antonoff, Chvrches, Capital Cities and more share tips for staying stylish (and safe!) in the Austin heat

We've done our best to help you prep for Austin City Limits 2014 with our survival guide detailing everything from where to stay to the best modes of transportation. And while we suggested you bring a pair of shorts, the rule at ACL 2014 was the shorter the better—short shorts were everywhereChildish Gambino was even rocking short shorts onstage.

Bleachers/fun. member Jack Antonoff told us his personal styling method for the fest's No. 1 trend. "I like short shorts where the pockets and your boxers kinda come out," he says. "Some combination of short shorts, a lot of leg and big, black boots."

We also had a few musician friends offer additional festival fashion advice. From the practical (Chvrches' Martin Doherty says "sunglasses and sunscreen") to the trendy ("Cut-off tee and baseball cap," say The Head and the Heart), watch above to find out what fashion items one must have to wow at the Austin extravaganza.
