Jazz, Orchestra, Outdoor Festival: Here’s What to Wear to Every Type of Concert
Whether you’re seeing Beyoncé, The Roots or the New York Philharmonic, there’s no doubt that there’s something extra special about watching a live musical performance. Stressing over what to wear (or sitting for hours in an uncomfortable ensemble) shouldn’t take away from that awesome experience. Hence our easy cheat sheet for what to wear to any concert, no matter where it might be going down. Read on and prepare to rock your next live jam sesh in style.
Outdoor Music Festival
It’s time to leave the crochet bikini tops and super-short cut-off denim behind and upgrade your festival look to a pair of western booties and a cool embroidered topper. Much more comfortable (and flattering).
Intimate Bar Performance
A textured tee and kimono over black skinny jeans is equal parts stylish and relaxed. Finish with a pair of flat or low-heeled ankle boots so you’ll continue to stay comfortable even if you’re stuck standing for the whole show.
Huge Arena Show
Headed to a sold-out Bieber concert? (Hey, no judgment.) Keep it simple with a graphic tee (or maybe the tour merch), jeans and a flannel button-down you can tie around your waist.
Classical Orchestra Performance
Oh, you fancy, huh? Embrace the glamour with a cocktail or formal dress you love but don’t get to wear nearly often enough. Sure, the guy sitting next to you might be in khakis, but nobody ever suffered from being a little overdressed.
