With Governors Island behind us, the summer concert series is only just beginning. This summer I am stoked to be seeing tons of concerts, including The Lumineers, Beyoncé, Imagine Dragons, Jay-Z, Fun., Justin Timberlake, Steve Aoki, (Sir) Paul McCartney, Band of Horses, Lana Del Ray, Mumford and Sons and even Taylor Swift (sorry I’m not sorry). Finding the perfect look to match my musical taste buds seemed impossible.
That is, until I spotted this Fashionista. Her outfit is perfect for an afternoon spent with friends, jamming out to the tunes of my favorite artists. A chambray shirt is a must-have for any Fashionista. Besides being universally flattering and the perfect shade of blue, chambray shirts can take you just about anywhere—including to a concert. I love how she styled it. By rolling up the sleeves and only buttoning a few strategic buttons, the top looks instantly cool and carefree.
This Fashionista’s pleated skater skirt is the perfect choice for a concert. Skater skirts are a major trend this summer. The pleats add an element of interest to the otherwise black fabric. Besides being super chic and trendy, the skater skirt would allow you the mobility to twist and twirl while singing along to “Ho Hey.”
Be sure to top the look off with a straw trilby hat, like this Fashionista, to keep the sun out of your eyes so you can focus on the sweet moves and sultry voice of your favorite artist.
One Simple Change: I always suggest wearing flats to a concert and this Fashionista’s gold gladiator sandals are the perfect choice. However, if you want to transform this look into a casual date look, throw on a pair of wedges to elevate your ensemble.
