Among some of the most slick looks, a concertgoer wearing a simple black tank teamed with pale blue shorts gave her outfit a whimsical splash with Chinese Laundry’s lace-up embellished Posh sandals. The shoes incorporated tiny goldtone-coin charms, geobeading detail and lively pom poms. They retail for $59.95 but are currently on sale for $39.99 on nordstrom.com.

Stomping out with a real eye-catcher, one of the attendees took her minimalist athleisure look to wild levels with her footwear — Current Mood’s bright iridescent platform boots.
