Though music festival season—as well as the majority of concerts, in general—may not officially begin until we’re a good number of months into the New Year, this isn’t to say that winter goes entirely concert-free. While you might not be heading to an outdoor venue anytime soon, if you’ve already signed up to see, say, Elton John on his farewell tour or another major artist this season, you’re going to need something to wear.
