Is it just me or when you’re getting ready for a concert do you imagine being picked out of the audience to go onstage with the artist? I plant this scenario in my head every time, and it makes choosing an outfit seem like a life altering decision. Hey, you never know when John Mayer will ask you on stage to serenade you to “Your Body is a Wonderland” (a girl can dream). My biggest concern when going to a concert is what to wear (obviously), the hardest part of getting ready is there is no concert uniform.
Your ensemble is a reflection of the artist/genre. For example, what I wore to Beyoncé would not be the ideal outfit to wear to a Michael Bublé concert. In general keep you ensemble comfortable, but hey, just because you want to be comfortable when you’re dancing and singing the night away doesn’t mean sweatpants are going to be your best option. This Fashionista’s ensemble screams indie-chick, and she knows how to dress comfortable for a concert while still looking super chic.
For a summer concert, shorts are always a good idea, this Fashionista opted for a pair of high-waisted dark denim booty shorts, which look flawless paired with a button-down chambray shirt. I love the combination of chambray and denim, it’s the classic Canadian tuxedo with a spin of edge-obsessed. Since this Fashionista opted for cool tones in her clothing it only seemed fitting to edge things up with her accessories; and the motto for accessories is the more the merrier! I love the mismatch assortment of rings this Fashionista has piled on, the silver and gold jewelry adds interest and contribute to her overall indie look.
When choosing a handbag opt for something that is minimal, but will hold essentials plus your good camera–of course. Last but certainly not least, don’t forget the shoes which are the most important part of the outfit when going to a concert. Wear something comfortable, heels are chic, but leave them for the after party. Braided sandals, like this Fashionista is wearing, are a fun comfortable pair to tie the whole look together.
One Simple Change: For the after-party throw on a floral blazer, and a neon clutch and you’re ready to be serenaded by John Mayer.
