Standard v-neck shirt
Simple and easy, your v-neck shirt is your concert go-to. It offers a flattering fit, while effortlessly matching with most pants. Coordination is key here: if you plan on wearing coloured pants or a funky jacket, like a an embroidered vintage bomber, wear a neutral coloured v-neck in black, white or grey. It’ll tie the outfit together.
Expecting to sweat? Whether you’ll be jamming in the sweltering heat or way into the a.m. hours, a linen shirt will keep you fresh and clean. The material is lightweight and absorbent, keeping your vibe up and BO down.
You can never go wrong with jeans at a concert—ever! Invest in a high-end pair with tailored sizing to give you the perfect fit. You’ll feel like gold.
It’s the universal trendsetter. Classically cool, black pants are your staple to wear at a concert. For the best fit, you must consider the cut. If you’ve got a lean figure, go for slim-fit and for wider legs, you’ll want boot-cut.
Add a touch of vintage trendiness with a denim vest. It lends some textural variation to your outfit, while also providing extra compartment space— you know, for your gum or special mints, or what not.
Sporty and stylish, the bomber jacket is your friend. There are dozens of textures available, like plain nylon, leather or those exquisite embroidered versions with sewn-in creatures on the back. Pay attention, chaps!
From military to moto style, boots make a fierce outfit-finisher. Wear them to concerts with denim or black pants for a slick look.
Running shoes at concerts are a no-go, but it’s a “hell yes” for designer sneakers. Whether you prefer full-on bling with wild patterns or a more simplistic style, sneakers will complete your outfit.
These clothing tips will have you impressively dressed and concert-prepped. Just don't forget to bring water bottles— your greatness must be quenched.
