There are a lot of things we love about the spring and summer months, the warm weather, the cute clothes, being outdoors, but the fact that’s it’s concert season just might be our favorite. There’s nothing better than sitting in the grass on a warm night, drink in hand, listening to one of your favorite artist play.
But what do you wear to a concert? That can be a tough question–until now. Whether you’re into hip-hop or soft rock, there’s one crucial rule to abide by when choosing a concert outfit: make sure it’s comfortable. You don’t want your sky-high heels or your super tight dress to get in the way of you jamming out to your favorite band and dancing like nobody’s watching.
So, with that in mind, you’re ready to take on the challenge of building the perfect, effortlessly cool concert outfit. From an edgy grunge look to a more laid back indie ensemble, a concert is a perfect location to let your creative juices flow and experiment with your outfit.
If you need a little inspiration, scroll down for five cool concert-ready outfits that you should copy.
1. mini skirt + black shirt + fun jacket
Rock a high-waisted mini skirt and pair a fun jacket with a simple top to look a little retro at your next concert event. Worn with a pair of sneakers, you’ll feel comfortable and look stylish, all at the same time.
2. cabby hat + plaid pants + button-up shirt
Plaid pants are the ultimate 90’s throwback piece. Dress up a pair of plaid trousers with a button-up long sleeve to take this outfit from juvenile to mature. For comfort, wear a classic sneaker like black Converse or Vans (see woman on left).
3. maxi dress + moto jacket + boots
Is your concert a little bit more upscale? No problem. Add a little bit of edginess to a flowing maxi dress by layering a moto jacket on top. The jacket will keep you warm at the end of the night and adds major style points. Wear this outfit with a pair of your favorite boots.
