Whether you’re going out to a small venue or an arena tour is more your speed, we’ve got the concert outfit for you. After all, when it comes to concerts, a genre-appropriate look is almost as important as the music (well, to us at least). Of course, there are a few other factors to consider when seeking concert outfit ideas: You need to be able to dance, possibly walk long distances (especially if you’re attending a music festival), and brave the elements if the concert is outdoors. (On that note, also check out our cheat sheet of the best types of shoes to wear to a concert.)
To help you decide on an outfit based on the type of concert you’re going to, we’ve compiled an assortment of celebrity-approved looks that would be perfect for the occasion. Read on to see and shop 10 concert-ready outfits for rock, country, pop, music festivals, and more. These should free you up to focus on the music.
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, and then complete the look with dark pieces à la Bella Hadid and Emma Roberts.
With the massive popularity of the Western trend, there’s no time like the present to get yourself a ticket to a country music concert. Just be sure to keep things polished and modern to avoid looking costumey.
A pop concert is a great excuse to pull out your “trendiest” pieces and have fun with your look. Anything goes for a pop concert, but we recommend denim.
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. Try a matching set or chic jumpsuit for a cool, easy look, or take advantage of the Woodstock vibe and bust out your best boho-chic looks, but preferably on the subtler side. And remember: You want flats. Always flats.
A subtle ’90s look feels fresh right now on the alternative scene. Try a minidress and ankle boots or sneakers, or keep things simple and comfortable with a graphic tee and denim cutoffs.
