23 Outfits to Wear to a Concert

Concerts are quite fun and exciting, especially when meeting your favorite artist. Whether going to a Hip hop concert or Beyonce, wearing something fashionable yet functional is a great element for your dressing. You want to look chic while dancing like nobody’s watching and take Instagram-worthy pictures. Not sure what to wear to a concert? We’ve got you!  From double denim to leather jackets and cross bags, we’ve rounded up the best outfit ideas to wear to a concert.

Before deciding what to wear, try to consider the following first:

  1. What type of concert is it? (Orchestral, rock, hip-hop, RnB?)

Different music genres have distinct looks, so let the music be your outfit guide. For hip hop, sporty brands look great with hoodies, and leggings are perfect for pop. 

  1. Where is the venue (A club, stadium, outdoor?)

There is really no right or wrong when dressing up for a concert; just make sure you wear something suitable for the venue. 

  1. How is the weather? 

If it’s a winter concert, the last things you want to wear are shorts and a crop top, which brings the advice; dress appropriately for the weather. Bring your hoodie and sweater, or wear your leather jacket if it’s chilly.  Wear a lightweight dress or a romper if it’s a summer concert. 

  1. Will you be standing or sitting?

If you will be standing, you don’t want your feet in heels that will make you uncomfortable. Concerts are meant to be fun, so ditch your heels for sandals so you can enjoy yourself. If you would be sitting or don’t mind wearing heels, by all means, wear them. 

  1. What time of the day will the concert take place? Night or daytime? 

The time of the concert can also influence what you wear to the concert. For example, a floral-designed outfit will look great if it’s daytime. 

Concert Outfit for the Ladies

All the ladies in the house, consider these outfits for your next concert:

1. T-shirt and Jeans

Sometimes, simple is better, so opt for your favorite pair of jeans, some t-shirt, and a jacket or sweater for layering. Wear sneakers or other footwear that will let you stand on your feet for a while. This style idea works for both ladies and men and is great for pop and hip hop concerts.

2. Wear Sneakers, Sandals, or Other Comfortable Shoes

Concerts often take hours, so you need to wear something comfortable, especially if you are dancing or standing. We recommend sneakers, trainers, sandals, and low heel boots. If you will be sitting at the concert for a symphony, you can wear your heels. 

3. For Country Concerts: Cowboy Boots

9. Jackets

It’s a great idea to bring a jacket with you because it usually gets cold at the venue before the show starts. Your jacket can be leather, corduroy, denim, or anything that can keep you warm. 

10. Double Denim: Best for Country Concert

Going to a country concert? We recommend double denim! Jeans are great and practical for a concert and even better when you pair them with a denim jacket of another shade and sneakers. Opt for blue jeans, a button-down plaid, denim jackets, and some Cuban heeled boots. Another fashion-forward to tock the denim on denim is wearing a denim skirt instead of jeans. 

11. Sequin Top and Leggings

For a more feminine and stylish look, wear a knee-length a-line skirt paired with a cute sweater or short-sleeved shirt. If you are tall, you are good with a maxi A-line skirt, and if you’re curvy, we say go for a short A-line skirt. Add a chic bag and dangling earrings, and you will epitomize chic fashion.
