Picture this… The concert you’ve been patiently waiting for for months now is finally coming up and you’re thinking about what to wear.
A few years ago, that would have consisted of a simple t-shirt and jeans paired with comfy shoes.
But nowadays concerts have turned into a full fashion extravaganza.
I would say Harry Styles’ long running ‘Love on Tour’ tour started spreading that idea with fans going all out wearing outfits incorporating his signature style elements.
Lately, with Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, and more stars being on tour, people are putting all their efforts into their outfits with some creating their outfits from scratch.
When it comes to Beyoncé’s ‘Renaissance’ tour and Taylor Swift’s ‘Eras’ tour, the two queens are known for their amazing on stage style showcasing a slew of outfits grabbing everyone’s attention throughout the show.
Fans have embraced that tradition and took on wearing sparkly aesthetic outfits to match the concert’s vibe. Even Beyoncé caught on and asked that fans wear silver to her birthday show.
Thinking about it, it’s a matter of style over comfort, and I think most die hard fans would choose to go all out.
I never thought people would opt to wear platform heels, or heels in general, to a concert, but honestly a look is a look.
The opera is a perfect excuse for you to bring home that one dress you’ve had your heart on since forever.
Even though dressing up for the opera can be challenging, especially if it’s your first time going.
While there aren’t specific rules, it’s always best to be on the formal side.
That doesn’t have to mean a gown, but still it’s your chance to go all out and wear your dream outfit.
Some people turn to sparkly or feathery outfits pairing them with a pop of color in the purse or accessories.
Also, nobody said you have to wear a dress or a gown.
My personal favorite take on an opera outfit is a suit, you can make a powerful statement wearing an extravagant blazer or a full suit.
When it comes to outdoor festivals, it has become a crucial point to think about what you’re going to wear.
Even people are more interested in going to festivals solely for the outfit opportunities, more than the music.
Festivals are an excuse to go as wild as you want with your outfits. But the OG festival outfits are all flowy bohemian looks.
It is important though to focus on comfort because you spend full days at the festivals, usually in a desert, so you have to choose a cute yet functional outfit for you to dance as you like, run, walk, sit down, or anything.
One of the best options I think would be a flowy boho dress with prominent accessories.
If you’re going to a heavy metal or punk concert, this is your time to dip into your edgy side wearing dark colors, and original unique jewelry like studded chokers and bracelets.
Wearing a t-shirt of the band you’re going to see, paired with leather shorts, combat boots, and a few chunky pieces of jewelry is your best option.
If you want to take it to the next step and add that extra sass, you could wear a leather dress with your favorite dark makeup look and edgy jewelry.
Jazz and blue shows are some of the events where you get the chance to dress up wearing the dresses you’ve been eyeing for a while, without going all out.
When thinking of a jazz event, the first thing that came to my mind were the outfits Emma Stone’s character Mia wore in ‘La La Land’, which is one of my favorite movies.
Having a boyfriend that is passionate about jazz, Mia had to go to many jazz shows, so she had a lot of memorable outfits.
She opted for simple midi dresses, mostly A-Line dresses, jazzing it up with her choice in purses and shoes.
First few things that come to mind when thinking of a country concert are cowboy boots, a cowboy hat, and fringe!
And that’s exactly what you should opt for when going to a country concert.
Many girls like to wear a mini skirt, a comfy t-shirt, with their pair of cowboy boots, and a cowboy hat.
I think you can add a little more pizazz with a sparkly dress, a fringe denim jacket, or get a bit of both and add sparkly fringe to your shorts or top mixing the ideal rustic look with a little chic.
Also, if you want to stay comfortable during the show, denim dresses are a great option when you pair it again with your cowboy boots and hat, you will look gorgeous without even trying.
Honestly, one of my favorite things to see online when there’s a tour going on, is everyone’s take on their DIY looks for the shows.
I think some of the fastest fandoms to work are Beyoncé, and Harry Styles’ fans.
During the Beyoncé’s Coachella shows and Renaissance tour fans put all their efforts into recreating her looks, even she was surprised a few times and pointed it out.
To make it an extra memorable night, I think creating your own look and adding your own personalized touch to your outfit is the best thing to do, especially if you’re going to your favorite artist’s show.
If you’re planning on wearing a dress to the concert in general, the most important thing to focus on is matching your accessories and shoes to your dress to keep everything in unison.
Like if you’re wearing a purple dress try to include any purple in your bag or shoes.
Or if you’re wearing a colorful dress try to make one of the colors prominent by including one of the colors in your accessories.
Conclusion: Rocking Your Concert Look
In the end, I think the most important thing you should do is embrace your personal style, whether you create a look from scratch, or you add your touch into the look with some accessories you have to make it as memorable as you can.
