Being a broke college student in New York City is no joke, especially once summer hits. With tempting outdoor markets and fabulous summer fashion, it can be nearly impossible to not spend that newly deposited paycheck in a New York minute. Luckily, however, the city has some of the coolest events during the summer that are free. Namely, outdoor concerts. Free admission means a little wiggle room to buy a cool new dress for the musical event.
This Fashionista is the epitome of concert cool. Her simple outfit is just right for spending a lazy afternoon in Madison Square Park, lounging on a towel and sipping something cool. The key for these type of events is to look effortless, and this Fashionista nails it with an easy but trendy midi dress. The green print is a bright addition to any summer wardrobe, while the length of the dress makes it easy for lounging in the park sans sitting struggles that come with shorter length pieces.
This Fashionista paired her concert-ready dress with a cool pair of black flatforms. Having super preppy tendencies, I usually gravitate away from anything that evokes any feeling of the ’90s, but I will have to credit studying abroad in Europe for my changed ways. I saw Fashionistas all over the world make the chunky sandal look incredibly chic, and I traveled back to America a changed Fashionista. She completed the too-cool-for-school look with a pair of super round sunnies.
One Simple Change: This concert outfit can double for a casual date night look. Swipe on some bold lipstick and grab a slouchy sweater to combat the inevitable arctic temperatures inside the restaurant.
