A lot of people swear by music. Whether it’s for studying, partying or working out, every mood can be matched with a melody. While an iPod and some speakers may suffice for a small house party, nothing compares to the real thing. Seeing your favorite band perform live, standing just a few dozen yards away from you, is an experience unlike any other. This week I caught Nora on her way to meet friends before a concert.
Nora kept it comfortable in a Zara graphic tee emblazoned with a skull, a pair of marble washed jeans from J Brand and a beanie from rag & bone. Concerts can be tricky in the winter. At a venue where people are packed in like sardines and the air is thick with sweat and heat, nobody wants to wear anything more than a pair of jeans and a thin shirt but travelling there in the winter requires some sort of jacket. Her asymmetrical leather jacket will keep her from totally freezing on her way to the concert, and she can just whip it off once there without feeling too bulky.
For a simple graphic T-shirt, try this sleeveless version from Urban Outfitters. Spice it up with some funky jeans such as this intense tie-dyed one from Joe’s Jeans. Nora’s bag is a top handle by Reed Krakoff, but for a concert where you’ll probably be moving around a lot, go hands-free with a small cross-body bag like this gray Free People version complete with studs and fringe. Concerts oftentimes imply standing for an extended period of time. To ensure your feet aren’t killing you by the end of the night wear a pair of flat, black Frye biker boots. Scatter some rings on your fingers and throw on some bangles for a final touch of understated style.
NYU students are certainly into their music, and living in the city allows us the opportunity to visit some of the greatest venues. With a few staple pieces, you can ensure you look trendy, feel comfortable and have a great time.
One Simple Change: If you love the relaxed, cool vibe of this outfit but want to dress it up for a casual dinner with a friend you can swap the flat boot with a heeled version for something a little more nighttime appropriate.
