While a big part of concerts has always been enjoying your favourite artists live, it’s become a fashion spectacle. Music lovers from all over the world come together, expressing their one-of-a-kind style inspired by everything from the artist’s aesthetic to the music genre itself. With such an emphasis on concert fashion, it’s become a huge topic of discussion about what’s best to wear. From casual to glam, keep reading to discover different kinds of outfits you can wear to your next concert.
Casual Jeans and a Tee
One of the most classic concert outfits is jeans and a t-shirt. Although simple, soft casualwear like this pairing will never go out of style and works for every kind of concert. As such a versatile option for both men and women alike, you can style this outfit to fit the genre and mood of your concert. For example, if you’re heading to a hip-hop or rock concert, sneakers or even cool combat boots are a great combo. Have a little extra fun at a pop concert with a crop top.
Though dressing up may seem unnecessary, we’re not referring to your black-tie attire—unless you want to, of course. Concerts are the perfect place for women to try out a cute new party minidress or for men to wear a custom blazer with dark denim or slacks. Easy to wear and effortlessly chic, you’ll shine even brighter than the luminous concert lights.
Bonus: You can wear a dress or modern blazer for plenty of semi-formal and special occasions to come!
Who says you can’t style your outfit around shoes? A concert favourite for their country-western and bohemian appeal, boutique cowboy boots will make your outfit pop and make you want to dance throughout the entire setlist. Since a little Western flair goes a long way, you’re going to want to keep it simple with the rest of your concert outfit. Pair your boots with jeans and a fun blouse or plaid shirt for pure casual comfort, or wear them with a flowy dress, mini skirt, or short denim shorts to really make a statement. You’ll be rocking your boots from concert to concert.
As stylish as we want to look at concerts, sometimes we don’t want to do too much styling to achieve that look. Matching sets are your easy solution. Whether you go for a skirt, shorts, or pants set, you’re getting a put-together outfit that requires minimal effort. Try knit, leather, or cotton sets, which are easy, stylish fabrics that’ll mesh well with the atmosphere at any concert. Plus, these matching sets will be comfortable enough to wear while you walk, sing, jump, and dance the night away. It’s a win-win!
Trendy Mini and a Leather Jacket
Let’s be honest: There are few pieces of apparel that are cooler than a leather jacket. A concert must-have, it’s the ultimate outerwear for all ages and genders. Leather jackets will add an instant cool factor to any concert outfit, from jeans and a band tee to a breezy floral dress. However, combined with a trendy mini skirt and either knee-high boots or fashion sneakers, it’s a look that’s worthy of being hailed as a new concert classic. Are mini skirts not your thing? Turn your mini skirt into a midi instead for more coverage.
Embrace Your Concert Style
It doesn’t matter what type of concert you go to, which artist you’re seeing, or where the venue is—having a stylish concert outfit is a must. Don’t let the fashion pressures of your next concert worry you, though! Whether you choose something casual like jeans and a tee or an effortless matching set, you’ll be just the right amount of cool.
