This summer has been filled with music. When I could scrounge up enough money (broke college kid problems) I went to a concert. I may have even gone to see Aaron Carter perform. Yes, he sang “I Want Candy.” Even though he still sings the same songs he came out with 10 years ago, the seven-year-old in me could not have been more excited when he serenaded me on stage. True story. It’s now officially August, which means school is right around the corner—sigh. People usually think of summer as the best and really only time for concerts, but that’s not necessarily true. Just because classes are about to start doesn’t mean the music has to stop. Going to concerts during the school year gives you a break from worrying about all of the work you have to do and the pressures of life in general. Friedrich Nietzsche once said, “Without music, life would be a mistake.” Music somehow brings us all together.
One of the most exciting parts of a concert, for me, is seeing what everyone there is wearing. Fashion and music go hand in hand. I always plan my outfit according to the type of concert I’m going to. No, I did not wear my scrunchies and overalls to Aaron Carter. Though, outdated ’90s attire did seem rather fitting. The great thing about this Fashionista is that she is dressed to go to almost any concert. You can never go wrong with a pair of black high-waisted denim shorts. They are fashion forward and will be practical for dancing around in. The paint stripe detailing also makes them unique.
She pairs her ensemble with a white crop top, combat boots, statement jewelry, a black purse and fun sunglasses. I love how even with all of those items the outfit is still simple. In this case, the fact that she is wearing all neutral colors doesn’t make it look like she has too much going on. Her outfit will be sure to look good and be comfortable throughout any concert.
One Simple Change: Her shorts and boots are perfect for a night out listening to her favorite artist. Swap the items for a maxi skirt and a pair of sandals to transform this ensemble into something that could be worn on a casual date.
