10 Cute Outfit Ideas for Every Type of Concert
Whether you’re a Bonnaroo gal or the beats of The Weeknd’s arena tour are more your speed, we’ve got the concert outfit for you. After all, when it comes to concert-going, a genre-appropriate look is almost as important as the music (well, to us at least). Of course, there are a few other factors to consider when choosing what to wear: You need to be able to dance, possibly walk long distances (if you’re attending a music festival), and brave the elements if the concert is outdoors. (On that note, also check out our cheat sheet of the best types of shoes to wear to a concert.) To help you decide on an outfit based on the type of concert you’re going to, we’ve compiled an assortment of celebrity-approved looks that would be perfect for the occasion.

Our best advice when it comes to a rock concert? Wear sturdy shoes. Even if you’re not moshing and jumping around, other people will be. So protect yourself with a pair of moto boots, then complete the look with edgy, dark-colored pieces à la Bella Hadid and Emma Roberts.
While you want to avoid looking costumey for a country music concert, you do want to give a subtle nod to the genre. Mix plaid with more sophisticated pieces and keep denim polished. And no matter what you do, don’t forget the boots!
If you have tickets to a Top-40 star’s tour, bust out your favorite crop top and jeans, top them off with a duster or bomber jacket, and slip on a comfy pair of heels or ankle boots.
Perhaps it’s the wide-open spaces and daylight, but outdoor music festivals are more of a fashion show than any other type of musical event (in our minds, at least). Try a matching set or chic romper for a cool, easy look, or take advantage of the Woodstock vibe and bust out your best boho-chic looks, preferably on the subtler side. And remember: You want flats. Always flats.
A subtle ’90s cool-kid look feels fresh right now on the alternative scene. Try a minidress and ankle boots or sneakers, or keep things simple and comfortable with a graphic tee and denim cutoffs.
