Whether it’s a music festival, a show in the park, or a stadium-packed tour stop, outdoor concerts are the place to be during the summer. Deciding which concert to go to is usually pretty easy. But deciding what to wear? Not so much.
No worries, babe. We took care of the hard part!!!
We’ve got all the deets on what to wear to an outdoor concert. All you have to decide is which look best suits your plans and your Insta feed. ;))
What To Wear To An Outdoor Concert
Comfortable Clothes And Shoes
We know all too well that comfort isn’t always a top priority when putting together an outfit. For the right occasion, it’s definitely worth it to squeeze into a skin-tight dress and strap on sky-high heels. But to experience an outdoor concert the way it’s meant to be experienced, you should be comfortable.
When you get dressed for an outdoor concert, pick lightweight items made of breathable fabrics. Slide on shoes that you wear for hours without needing a massage and soak afterward, although by all means, do it anyway!
You can put together a killer outfit that’s both stylish and comfortable.
Jackets Or Sweaters
A blazing hot summer day can quickly become a cool summer evening. If you’re heading to a concert or festival that encourages you to party long after the sun goes down, you might want to think about adding an extra layer to your outfit.
Denim jackets are great for keeping you warm. They add a stylish element to a summer dress and match the laid-back vibe of casual outfits.
Adding accessories to your outfit is an easy way to show off your personality. Some of them even have a functional purpose (hello sunglasses!!). But don’t forget, you want to be comfortable. Piling on a bunch of heavy jewelry might look rocker-chic, but you’ll feel weighed down after a few hours outside.
Instead, go with a few simple, lightweight pieces.
For an outdoor concert, practicality is crucial. You want a bag that carries the essentials, like your wallet and keys. But depending on the venue, you might have to carry your bag the whole time you’re there. With a crossbody bag or belt bag, that’s not a problem!
Before you go, check the venue restrictions. Some places won’t let you bring in a large bag or have restrictions on the type of bag you can carry.
