Going to a concert is an incredibly fun and exciting experience for everyone at the show. Especially if it’s one of your favorite artists, or you’ve been waiting weeks for the day to finally get there, you’ll probably be filled with anxious and exciting feelings the whole time. But when it comes down to dressing for the occasion, some people tend to go a little bit overboard on their outfit choices. That’s why I’ve come up with some awesome outfit suggestions and the do’s and don’ts of dressing for a concert.
DO dress comfortably. It’s probably going to be a long and exciting day, so you don’t want your outfit choice to get in the way of you having a good time. For example, I would suggest you not wear heels or any sort of shoes that would hurt your feet and prevent you from having an awesome time. Anything that will cause you pain is not worth it, and if you’re going to be outside on the grass, it’s better to wear comfortable and sensible shoes that are good for walking.
DON’T go too crazy when it comes to your outfit choice. You want to look good, but you don’t want to stand out too much. Remember: you’re there to see a show, not be one yourself. If you’re going to a regular rock concert and you show up dressed in a spandex skeleton suit, or some ridiculous and loud outfit, people are going to be sort of annoyed, especially if you’re also being obnoxious on top of it.
DO wear rompers. They are a perfect way for you to dress incredibly cute, but also be comfortable. Dresses can get a little messy with the wind if it’s outdoors and you always have to worry about it coverings what it’s supposed to be covering, but rompers leave you with little to no problems. Unless it securely stays up, I suggest you wear one with straps so you don’t have to worry about it falling down on you.
DON’T overdo it in the accessories. If you’re covering your arms with bracelets and wearing a ton of jewelry, it’ll probably get annoying at one point or another. Just keep it simple so you don’t have to worry about taking them off and figuring out where you’re going to keep them.
DO bring some sort of bag or purse with you, but try to make it small. If you’re lugging around a huge, heavy bag of stuff with you everywhere, it’s gonna get annoying and you’re going to want to put it down. There are so many people at these concerts that there’s a very good chance that someone will take your bag, or take something from inside of it. If you have a small bag on your shoulder or even a small cross body where you can hold your phone, wallet, keys, and other necessities, that’s perfect for concert attire! And if it matches the rest of your outfit, even better!
DON’T wear what everyone’s wearing just to fit in. If you’re on your way to a Cochella-like festival where everyone will be wearing flower crowns and crop tops, don’t wear that if that doesn’t make you feel comfortable. Wear what you wanna wear, what your style is. Don’t just copy them because you feel like that’s what you’re supposed to do. Especially if you’re a little bigger and don’t feel comfortable wearing crop tops and short shorts, just make it work for you. Wear what you want, what makes you comfortable, and most importantly wear whatever makes you happy. This is a fun event – don’t let outfit choices ruin that for you.
