What to wear to a concert? Well, whether you’re a Beyoncé gal or the sweet tunes of Ed Sheeran’s arena tour are more your speed, we’ve got the outfit for you. After all, when it comes to concert-going, a genre-appropriate look is almost as important as the music (well, for us, at least). Of course there are a few factors to consider: You need to be able to dance, possibly hoof it long distances and, if the concert is outdoors, brave the elements. To help, we’ve compiled five looks of some of our street style stars. Get ready to rock out in style.
From the super cool grunge look to a more leopard-print type vibe, there are plenty of styles that you're bound to love and want to pin. And if you're not a skinny jeans kind of girl, don't worry, you won't be forced into a pair of drainpipes as there are many ways to make a dress or skirt look ready to rock. By taking inspiration from the likes of Pernille Teisbaek to Poppy Delevingne, we guarantee there'll be an ensemble that's right for you. Click through to see and shop five concert-ready outfits...
What to Wear to a Rock Concert
Style Notes: 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 pieces à la Pernille Teisbaek. Leather is always a good idea.
What to Wear to an Alternative Music Gig
Style Notes: This is your opportunity to bring out the dark band tees and '90s floral skirts. Team them with the clompiest shoes you've got (ones that you can seriously dance and jump in) and add directional sunglasses if there's even a hint of sun left on the horizon.
What to Wear to a (Probably Muddy) Festival
Style Notes: 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. Take advantage of the Splendor In the Grass vibe and bust out your best hippie-chic looks or go sports luxe meets practical. Just avoid going too far—oversize headdresses and barely-there outfits are rarely a good look. And remember: Wear flats. Always wear flats.
What to Wear to a Country Concert
Style Notes: While you want to avoid looking costumey for a country music concert like Lost Paradise, you do want to give a subtle nod to the genre. Top off your look with a hat, add some suede into the mix and team with more sophisticated pieces to keep denim polished. And no matter what you do, don’t forget the boots. (Yeehaw!)
What to Wear to a Pop Concert
Style Notes: Be it a Bey concert or a one of your favourite '90s bands on a revival tour, you'll need to be wearing something sexy but totally good to go when it comes to the dance floor. Wear high-rise jeans so you're not constantly pulling up your trousers and then you can really get a groove going.
