Dust Off Your Chain Wallet: The Summerland Tour Hits the Marquee on Saturday

Dust off your chain wallet: Everclear, Live, Filter, and Sponge are coming to Tempe tonight.

Nah, just kidding. There is way more to do than just dust off your chain wallet. To pay proper homage to this packaged concert tour, there are some more fashion details to consider. It's kind of late to grow a goatee, at this point, but if you have one, trim that thing up proper: We said '90s, not '60s.

Shave up the sideburns and slick back the spikey 'do so that it lies comfortably beneath that backwards baseball cap. Get all up in your closet and dig out a pair of knee-length, roomy shorts, most likely jean shorts that are just shy of meeting the mid-calf white socks that keep the feet protected beneath those bulky Vans. Shine up that 'brow piercing, too, you know that hole hasn't totally closed shut. This may ring gender-specific, but it's a pretty unisex ensemble. Okay -- maybe the goatee not so much. But most everything else works whether you're sporting a P or a V. (And ladies with '90s goatees, no offense meant.)

So now, you're ready to rock nostalgic. And you won't be alone.
