WHAT TO WEAR: Concert

July 15th, 2015 at 2:00am

Concerts are always fun no matter what time of year it is, but these bass-bumping events certainly reach their peaks in the summertime. They say that everything gets hotter when the sun goes down, and what better way to turn up the heat than with a summer musical festival? July is known to host some of the greatest parties of the summer. Techno rock beats fill the air as Electric Forest kicks off the month, soulful country vibes sound at the Faster Horses Festival and an array of musical genres play at Lollapalooza, which is the grand finale to July’s melodic affairs. Whether you’re a rock groupie, a country jammer or something in-between, there’s a festival to satisfy all acoustic cravings.

Among summer sounds and the good company of your friends, an encore-worthy ensemble can be the perfect finishing touch to any summer concert. This Fashionista is bringing a little southern charm to Michigan with a breezy look that has a touch of twang; perfect for Faster Horses!

Crop tops are a welcomed trend in the summertime. The minimal amount of fabric is a stylish way to stay cool and secretly work on your tan, making crop tops a fitting choice for summer music festivals. This Fashionista made her crop top work by contrasting the baby blue with a pair of white shorts. Those bright shorts were a flattering way to help the soft color of her shirt pop.

Sometimes accessories are forgotten when planning a summer music festival outfit. Adding extra pieces to a look that’s meant to last under the sun and beneath the moon can seem like a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen, but that’s not always the case. The trick is choosing pieces that are not too clingy and will move with you. This Fashionista nailed it with a long statement necklace and a few Alex and Ani bangle bracelets. Lastly, just like any girl in a country song, she topped of her look with a cowgirl hat.

One Simple Change: Maybe music festivals aren’t really your thing. No problem! Transform this concert look into a casual weekend wear look. Simply try replacing the hat with an artsy fabric headband. The lightweight accessory is not only a great way to keep your hair pulled back but it is also a reflection of the lovely, easy-going summer lifestyle.
