Warm weather, cool drinks, short shorts, long nights – all signs of summer. But nothing is more indicative of the most fun season of the year than outdoor concerts. There is just something so magical about the free and relaxed atmosphere of an outdoor concert that simply cannot be achieved indoors. The one luxury we lose at an outdoor concert is protection from potentially harsh climates. Luckily, with the proper attire, we can battle the elements and rock out in comfort and style.
During the summer, it can be particularly tempting to bare it all, but some coverage can be useful, as this Fashionista demonstrates. Her outfit caught my eye because of how smart it is. Her simple button-down shirt can help lessen the impact of a few of nature’s severities, such as unexpected rain and the harsh midday sun that is so famous for its tendency to burn. The shirt is lightweight and can easily be carried or put in a bag when the weather is behaving itself, allowing her to show off the rest of her wonderfully adorable outfit. My favorite thing about her outfit is the split-back tank she is wearing. This is one of my favorite current trends and I get irrationally excited every time I see people sporting it. Shoes are also important to consider for a day out at an outdoor concert. You’re likely to be standing a lot, so make sure your shoes are comfortable and supportive, like the sneakers she is wearing. This Fashionista proves that one does not have to sacrifice style when dressing smart.
Are you dying to rock this look at the next concert you attend? Grab your favorite pair of jean shorts, this graphic print split-back tank top from ASOS and button-down like this one from Forever 21. Try to make sure the button-down is of a natural fiber, like cotton or linen, to ensure breathability. If you’re going to wear layers in the summer, the last thing you want is something that will trap heat like polyester.
One Simple Change: Swap both shirts for your favorite team’s jersey and this look will be perfect for a sporting event!
