Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, and More Are Touring in 2023: Here's What to Wear
While the typical concert outfit idea may consist of a T-shirt and jeans, concerts have now become full-on fashion extravaganzas. Artists' stage costumes are a huge part of their tours, and now showgoers are following suit. Not only are the venue things to consider while dressing for a concert but the genre and entire theme of an album are up for similar consideration. A simple click into one TikTok sound made for Swifties to show off their Eras tour pulls up 10.2k posts and counting—filled with fans showing off outfits based on each album. I never thought I'd see the day when platform heels were the shoe choice of concerts but after all, a look is a look.
Incorporating signature style elements of the artist is key for creating the perfect concert look, whether it's a color theme or a go-to accessory. To help you decide on an outfit based on the type of concert you're going to, we've curated outfit ideas and mood boards based on each artist's current aesthetic. No matter what genre of music you're interested in, read on to see and shop each look from the casual and comfy ones to the mega-glammed options.

Despite being years past 2014, Arctic Monkeys fans have not been able to let the edgy look of the Tumblr days go. We don't blame them—the striped shirts and leather jackets are classic (and comfortable) pieces that'll make for a perfect concert look.

The Jonas Brothers pretty much broke the internet when they announced they were getting back together in 2019, and to honor the release of their upcoming album, The Album, they're playing a few shows in NYC and London. The trio has come a long way from their Disney Channel days, experimenting with colorful suits and retro-inspired outfits.

Drake usually keeps it casual for his tour looks, so it only makes sense to take notes and keep it sporty while attending his shows. Parachute pants, graphic tees, and cool sneakers are options to consider.

With four new albums and two re-recordings since Taylor Swift's last tour, there are no words to describe the Eras tour besides epic. You could dress for the preferred album of your choice but according to Swift's tour costumes, the best thing to incorporate into your looks are tulle, sparkles, and metallics.

The western aesthetic has left a significant impact on current fashion, so it'll be a pretty easy feat to find something to wear at the Shania Twain concert. After all, you may already own a pair of cowboy boots.
